Stuff

The word on my Forgotten English calendar for today is poupics. It is a mess of victuals made of veal steaks and slices of bacons. Yeah, them eats.

A couple other interesting words that I have come across in the last few days are globster and lagan. Globster, or blob, is an unidentified organic mass that washes up on the shore of an ocean or other body of water. Lagan is cargo or equipment thrown into the sea, but attached to a float or buoy so that it can be recovered. Similar to flotsam and jetsam.

I also came across Wikipedia's list of paradoxes.

Interesting lists of wiki on Wikia.

Check out the French Word-a-Day blog.

Ever need to know the longest abbreviation or the longest place name. Look no further.

I really, really, really want to purchase some of the very cool Blik Wall Graphics. Blki has a blog.

Nature definitions. So there is a difference between a stream and a creek.

Did you ever wonder why some items like milagros and the number 7 are considered lucky? Do you ever feel the need to know some of the odd and strange things considered to be lucky? Well wonder no more. The Lucky W Amulet Archive is here to answer your questions and then some.

The National League of Junior Cotillions has come out with its list of the 10 most best- mannered people. Do you see your name? There are also past years lists on the site. What's sort of strange about this is I see the list for 2005, but nothing more recent. Hmmm.

I've been collecting names for years, and there's a few on this list that are new to me.

Check out this very unique castle. (thanks K.)

List: 1. A series of names, words, or other items written, printed, or imagined one after the other: a shopping list; a guest list; a list of things to do. 2. A considerable number; a long series: recited a list of dates memorized American Heritage Dictionary (4th edition)
