Moist!

Here's a link to an article about word hate:

Linguists: "Moist" makes women cringe

You know, I can't think of a single word I have the sort of visceral reaction to that this article (and some of the commentary) talk about. Now, images, that I can think of a number that give me that "ew!" factor. But words? Nope.

Now I am wondering if this means I am less of a verbal person than I thought I was. :)


Oh, and by the way:

I saw a link to this today, and since I'm apparently in a mood where it resonated, I'm posting the link:

Have you seen the Superman is a Dick website? Of course you have, but if you haven't, it's a collection of old Silver Age comic covers and panels where Superman is, um, being a dick.

I hadn't been to the site in some time, and they've expanded. Among other things, they now feature (wait for it)...Suffering Sappho, images of Wonder Woman in bondage.

Article on knitting's current popularity

For [livejournal.com profile] dangerbunny and [livejournal.com profile] lumberjane and all the other knitty people on my flist.

Making molasses cake from an old recipe of my grandmother's. It doesn't call for any spices, which is odd; otoh it does call for blackstrap molasses, which I was out of. If it's too mild I can also throw in some ginger and clove next time I try it.

My search for Freyja images took me here:

http://lokis-mythologie.de/

which has a ton of them. Even some of Gefjon, including a pic of that famous statue. (Not sure why she is listed among the Vans, though. Any thoughts?) You need to know a bit of German to get through the text (my own German is 20 years old :)) but the pics are easy to find.

Kitties!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bluedolfyn I am passing on this super cute website of Cats in Sinks!

My daughters are out riding bikes right now, but when they get back I am prepared for the chorus of "Cuuuuuuuuute!" that is bound to ensue :).

Now back to stuff I should be doing.

Really interesting article on possible government recognition of (some) nonstandard marriages in Britain:

Hehe, I so do some ot these! :) I don't do creative writing so some of them don't apply, but others are universal. Food for thought in any case.

(But not w/regard to my LJ, here I just don't worry much about that stuff! :))

Votive offerings to Asklepios

Somehow I was envisioning something a little smaller :). Certainly gives me an interesting mental picture of what the god's temples must have looked like way back when!

I went to that astrology site [livejournal.com profile] ladyoceanstar referred to earlier--okay, this is just plain weird, creepy even, in its accuracy. (To the point where I'm not posting what it said--just trust me on this one, okay? ;))

Today it says:

None of us like loose endings. We prefer things to be neatly tied up and sorted out. That’s why some of us enjoy reading or writing fiction. In storybooks, you can have that sense of completeness. In real life? Well, there’s always going to be unfinished business of some sort, somewhere. You can’t expect everything today to suddenly start making perfect sense. You can, though, look forward to a settlement in one area of life. Soon, there will be strength and security regarding a matter that has lately caused much concern.

I'm an astrological skeptic but I sure hope this one's true!
