Umm... wow. It's been so terribly long since I've posted, and I've had so much that I wish I could have posted.
On the 'net and *other* facilities, once again...

OK, so this is getting rediculous. Those Brits must have a thing for constant connectivity. (Some of this stuff you just can't make up.)
Umm... kind of stupid headline, but interesting story, as these "look what they're puttin' in the dictionary" pieces sometimes are...
Unbelievable! THIS Is In the Dictionary? "Bling-bling" will soon be entered into the Oxford English Dictionary.
What started out as hip-hop jargon has turned into slang. And it's not just for teenagers. CNN Headline News can't get enough of "bling-bling." Listen carefully and you'll hear it on ESPN commercials. Newsweek used it in its May 12 edition in an article on, of all things, Costco. Newsweek's exact phrase was "Ring up the bling." At Costco.
All of which has gotten the very proper people at the very proper Oxford English Dictionary interested in "bling-bling." And not just as a noun. They're interested in it as a verb and adjective, too!
And on an unrelated note, but much more important than the preceding baloney... ¡YTQ, Nicolasa! posted by Steve
