Great Yiddish Wordwordsmithie

Mon, 23 May 2011 19:51:49 +0000

I’m sitting at my computer. I just ate a candy bar that is parading as a granola bar.  (It’s covered with chocolate and has peanuts . . . not much different that a Snickers.) It’s just a little nosh to quell my grumbling stomach until lunch time. Nosh. What a great Yiddish word.  As a […](image)

Semiotics [see-mee-ot-iks] is a noun that means the analysis of systems of communication, as language, gestures, or clothing.  She had a link […](image)

Tue, 22 Feb 2011 19:11:45 +0000

When I was in school and had to write papers, I dreaded getting them back.  More red dripped from them than from a vampire’s teeth.  It seemed that my teachers were so captuous. (Had I known that word back then, I might have said something to my teachers like, “Stop being so captuous, you ninny.” […](image)

Oh How Wormwood!wordsmithie

Fri, 11 Feb 2011 18:41:15 +0000

I know a fellow who is divorced.  Even though he has paid his ex-wife all of the money that the court ordered him to, she keeps coming back for more money.  Her intent is to keep making him pay for all of her wormwood experiences he has caused her. Wormwood  [wurm-wood] is a noun that […](image)
