Things I've learned of late

  • Summer Glau was born in the same year as I. This makes me feel pleasantly young.
  • What metonymy means (yes, I may have known it before, but I didn’t remember.)
  • Apparently if I were a rock star, I’d be either Siouxsie Sioux, Kate Bush, or Fernanda Takai, none of whose music I’d listened to until so informed. (Two down, Kate Bush to go.)
  • Someone who’s never been a judge is ‘qualified’ for the Supreme Court.
  • If a worker bee lays an egg, the other worker bees turn on her and devour her for her crimes.
  • A pin can go really, really far into your foot and not produce a lot of blood.

I hope you are duly edified.


She’s one of those who grow on you after a while. Sampler enroute.

How now? I do not perceive your meaning, my friend.

I didn’t know what a metonymy is until I clicked on your handy link. So, is an example of a metonymy when people say “The Man” when referring to the evil gov’t? I always learn something new with you…

Hmm…I’ve never thought of it that way. I suppose it could be, where the Man is some individual, faceless agent of oppression (like The Man With Keys in E.T.). Interesting thought, Miz Lindz.
