Two Minor Things I Have Learned Today


(1) This blog provides three of the examples for wordnik's definition for epizeuxis. All three of them come from this post.

(2) Wikipedia has a list of common misconceptions. It opens with the words, "This incomplete list is not intended to be exhaustive." [ADDED LATER: Which I actually find funny in itself; under what circumstances would you open a list by saying, "This incomplete list is intended to be exhaustive"?]

If things seem to be slow around here at the moment, it's because it's the last week of term. I gave my Ethics class its final exam today, and my last class of term is tomorrow.

    With end of term and summer vacation on its way, I now expect much more of your OWN poetry again.

    Only you, Brandon, could post every day of the week and twice on most, and claim that it was "slow around here". :)
