A little late today
I was down in Alexandria for a workshop at HR Magazine (they tolerated me pretty well), and what with the MARC and Metro travel, I didn’t have time to advise you this morning about the weekly word and the weekly joke video.
The word of the week is demirep; perhaps you know one.
The joke of the week is "The Hunter."
And in completely unrelated news, as I left Penn Station this afternoon, I thought that “Male/Female” looked to be in fine fettle. “Male/Female” is on Twitter now as @manwomanstatue, if you’d care to become a follower.
Over at Meta Talk, there is considerable lack of enthusiasm for strictures against holiday cliches. The lack of originality in the playground invective there—you might observe the regular recurrence of “Grinch” and “Scrooge”—reinforces the impression that people with impaired imagination resort to them.
