Sleepless in Seattle

I've been out to lunch on this game until now, or would that be out to very late supper. (Or post midnight snack.) I've been glued to the election thingy in California. I saw were were down a run early, and thought it was going to be one of those games. But I see we've exploded for a rare -these days - big inning. Looking good.

OD is a poor choice of phrase.
Yes, you got me there. I hadn't thought of that taken in more than one way thing. I mean that the incredible audio attack that was the typical Hendrix album is something that I appreciate and respect, but get overwhelmed if I were to listen to a few hours of it. My statement was meant with the highest respect to the Hendrix legacy.

But what about Jimi Hendrix who was from out that way? I must admit that I have to take Hendrix in small doses as not to OD. But he was a true genius.
Grunge had an epicenter in Seattle but was a national sound ... Nirvana was quintessential grunge and goddamn brilliant. I'm with you on those other two Seattle bands. I mean, "Black Hole Sun"? Really? That's like Spinal Tap ...

Living off Hope
“... efforting” first shows up in Nexis in a 1980 New York Times article about an actors’ strike: “I don’t like efforting of any kind,” the comedian Anne Meara said. We hope she was being ironic, even though she was using “efforting” as a noun.

The OED has:
a1661 T. Fuller Worthies (1662) Chesh. 180 He efforted his spirits with the remembrance..of what formerly he had been.
