I happened in to Unique Thrift on 25% off day. Hooaaa! My total came to $33.33. This delights me.
I taught Lizzi the expression "in her cups." Not that she was. That was Lisa.
I occasionally take a Facebook quiz if I have time for it to slow everything else down on my computer. I get a kick out of being told I must be a 20-something male from New York. I also like sites that Facebook introduces me to like the hipster business name generator. See? In real life, I am a young man in suspenders and Martin Scorsese glasses, opening a microbrewery in Brooklyn (The Mouse & Cabbage).
No, in real life I'm the same Sarah (not Amy) you've grown to know and love (or did already) who never posts without at least one picture of her little darlings. And to catch one of them in the act of rubbing a chunk of honeydew all over his tummy? Priceless.
The best thing I learned from Facebook this week was that punkster was added to the OED the year of my birth. I then looked up Brian's: nip and tuck. You know what? Go look up yours and add it in the comments. I want to know. Here's a link. Did you know foodie was added in 1980? That surprised me.
Speaking (metaphorically) of Facebook and vocabulary, I asked my friends if the b in clamber is silent or not (I thought it was). Not one of my blog friends who responded assumed I'd mixed up clamber and clamor. Nope those were my IRL friends who had serious doubts about my vocabulary and general knowledge. Thank you so much, bloggy friends, for your respect. And FYI, either pronunciation is acceptable so I will continue to pronounce clamber as a homophone of clamor. Actually, that's the best thing I learned from Facebook this week.
And now will clamber up this enormous pile of boulders to escape the wild dogs and the clamor they are making.
And you? Are you thankful?
