Random Thursday: Awesomesaurs and Some Unexpected Shakespeare

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

“Not By Wit nor Whiskered Jowl”

Dubious use of Shakespeare’s Giant Vocabulary by the inestimable John Branyan.



* I’m sending the rest to your mother’s friends.  I’m a librarian—I can find ’em.

** I’ve decided that what really bothers me about this is that she was negative-five when the song came out.  And I . . . wasn’t.
