It is a dark and stormy night. In Boston, anyway.
There’s something I really need to get out of my system. Ahhh, now that feels better. 🙂
This update to MT-Blacklist just saved me several minutes of aggravation. Thank you, Jay Allen!
One of my daughter’s favorite television programs these days is called Dragon Tales. Among the animated cast is an adult dragon with a gravelly voice. His name is Queztal, which sounds exactly like ketzel, a word from my childhood that is about as far from gravelly-voiced adult dragons as you can get. Literally ketzel (or ketzele) means “kitten” but my mother often used it as a term of endearment for me and my brothers, something akin to “little one”. The juxtaposition throws me into minor confusion every time.
New word: investriage?
