So I started the rest of the readings that were requested, but I haven't finished them...I still need to do the final interpretations, and I'm just too tired to do them tonight. So look here on Thursday for the readings.
A couple of random things to keep you all entertained (or maybe a little grossed out) in the meantime...
First, a 19 year-old in NY was convicted of felony animal cruelty recently for accepting a $10 bet and biting off the head of a gecko. The good news, this kind of thing is considered a parole violation! Really, this man seems to be heading for a Darwin award in a couple of years, I think.
Second, my statscounter tells me that someone found my page by looking up the word "smenita." This was that pesky word that everyone was getting on 12/1...at least that's what my google search turned up. People were gabbing about it all over blogspot (and a few blogs beyond) - even in multiple languages. All except for a blogger called Taffy Doublewide who posted a comment on another blog and said that the word was her word-verification (and it must have been successful).
And, lastly, have any of you read the full lyrics for The Wassail Song? Such a cute little song about children going out to sing for spare change in the dead of winter while the rich listen warm with their wassail inside their houses. Oh my! I suddenly have a new image of Christmas.
I'm going to go curl up with my book for the next half hour or so!
