Terrific Ask MetaFilter thread:
I found a scrap of paper with these terms on it, listed vertically. I don’t know when it was written, though it’s my writing and would certainly have been within the last 3-4 years. If you can draw any connections between these things, or interpret some of the odder ones (shapiro resp?), it would be wonderful.
shapiro resp (possibly shapivo resp)
sons and loves (I’m reasonably sure it’s not Sons and Lovers)
ugly’s (that misplaced apostrophe is quite out of character)
torsin’/dorsin’ (one of the two)
Any guesses before you find out the answer?
