My jaw dropped today when I saw it’s been a month since my last post. Where does the time go? Well, lately it’s been going to work, Mo, and apartment hunting. After 2.5 years of sitting on the couch while I work, it’s just time to get a bigger place so I can have a home office (and a dining table). It’s amazing I’ve been able to get anything done! And now that I’ve got a crawling baby whose favorite thing in the whole world is my MacBook, I just can’t have it in his sight, so no more working while he plays quietly on the floor. Sigh.
Even though things have been quiet around fade theory, I’ve been a little bit better on twitter (@fadetheory, fyi). Not much, but somewhat. And I’ve certainly been coming across interesting things to share. So here’s a quick round-up:
Â°Apparently lots of people lie about what books they’ve read. Or at least people in the UK. 65%, according to this article. Do/have you? (As an aside, someone could ask me questions about lots of books I’ve read and I’d draw a blank on details. I read lots of classics before I was even a teenager, which was a while ago now.)
Â°Everyone’s favorite Oxford Etymologist asks, “Why Donâ€™t We Know the Origin of the Word Ghetto?”
Â°Cologne’s archives building collapsed and many priceless documents are gone forever. I totally missed this until Angie sent me a link today. I appreciate the email, but man am I bummed.
