  1. The OED’s WOTD looks intriguing. I do enjoy learning new words – I’ll be happy to sign up! Thanks for the link.:)

    • I like it because, in addition to even sometimes presenting me with a word I don’t know, it gives great etymological information; I’ve loved that since I was a kid. Yeah, I was a weird kid. Whatever!

      I open my OED Word-of-the-Day email with the same kind of anticipation I do the comic strips I subscribe to. Unlike news emails, they aren’t going to distress me or anger me (or they’re very unlikely to), they aren’t going to demand something of me as a personal email might (which is fine, but not relaxing), and they aren’t going to be flames, troll, or spammy scammy emails from unknowns (though I have to admit that sometimes those are ludicrously funny, if otherwise a complete waste of time). So I enjoy my WotD email. The worst that can happen is I find it a bit dull one day, but there’s always the next!

  2. It is perfect time to make some plans for the long run
    and it is time to be happy. I’ve learn this post and if I could I wish to recommend you some attention-grabbing
    things or advice. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I wish to read more things about it!
