Topic: yap, yap, yapping all day long
Posted: Friday, February 22, 2019 12:53:39 PM

Talking nonstop, especially about insignificant things.

Yapping = yes (just a word; not an idiom)

Attendees can also enjoy live music, panels and lectures on fishing-industry issues, and art exhibits. Participants' literary contributions range from poignant personal memoirs to bawdy songs.

The manananggal is a mythical creature of Filipino folklore usually described as an older woman capable of severing her upper body from her lower half and then taking flight with huge bat-like wings. The creature is said to hunt at night, sucking the blood of its unsuspecting victims with its proboscis-like tongue. Like vampires, the manananggal detests garlic, and smearing it on its lower body while the upper part is away will result in the creature's death.
