Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Moose Mason, Geraldine Grundy used to preoccupy me. Still kind of does, I suppose.

Croquet and hockey are the same word and sport.
Combarieu declares that the songs of birds are not "musical" either, because they are "very difficult to take down in notation." See his Music-Its Laws and Evolution, 155. Will some divine power please create a "Musical" bird to sing the Air for G String in exact Equal Temperament for M. Combarieu?

was just reading an article written by someone whose surname is Davies and I had already had the don that it means 'son of David' but now it's suddenly donning on me that this is probably the reason that the E doesn't affect its pronunciation. like if it was 'son of Davey' (which would be odd) then it would be pronounced 'day-vees' rather than 'day-vis'

Found a fresh green one of these on the ground yesterday and was investigating what it was. Realized I was more familiar with the dried-out version, which I've always known as a "burr," although it's actually a sweetgum ball. This makes me wonder if "gumball" was initially a pun?

hmm well the word gum has an ancient etymological lineage, so the concept of “gum” or “gums” as natural or biological substances, some of which were chewed in antiquity like our modern chewing gum or gum balls, predates the western naming of a new world tree… though it’s also worth mentioning that various tree sap gums in the ancient americas were also used as chewing… stuff

so not to be Donny Don-Downer BUT I’d guess that the gum ball simply reflects the form that this ancient practice took

"bookoo" as in "bookoo bucks" is actually beaucoup. my star trek class's professor in undergrad is the only person in my life who ever really used that term and she used it all the time. not sure why it popped back into my head.

When newsies shout “Extra! Extra! Read all about it!”, the “extra” means they are selling a special edition of the newspaper in addition to the normal schedule, which implies something especially newsworthy must have happened to warrant immediate publication rather than waiting for the next regular issue.

When you are writing on a legal pad and you flip the page over the top of the pad to write the next one, the words you just wrote are still right-side-up and toward you.
