Friday Favorite

Grammarians and logophiles, prepare to be horrified. Apparently, the folks at Webster's have gotten a little loosey-goosey with their new entries. Check out Happy Meals & Happy Hour for a great report here.

Oh, dear Lord. Can't they make another dictionary, like a slang dictionary? And who the hell needs to look up "bazillion"? For what reason? Why do we need to look up the word "badabing"?

I accept, grudgingly, that "google" is now a verb. However, I have to agree: The dictionary is supposed to be the bouncer. Where are our standards going? What's next, "libary" as an alternate spelling for "library"?

Like nails on a chalkboard, but I love the way she wrote about it.
