wether

I was editing an old blog entry from access the process, and I couldn't decide if whether was the proper spelling. It seemed wrong, but I couldn't remember, so I hit up dictionary.com to look it up. When I typed in wether, it turns out that this actually means a castrated sheep. Also today's word of the day is inchoate, which isn't that exciting but still okay. Yesterday's was gewgaw, which is pretty awesome. I love the dictionary, but not as much as I love the thesaurus. I wonder if I would love a rhyming dictionary. I bet I would.

Haha, loved this entry. Amusing and educational. You also just earned even more cool points for loving dictionaries and thesauruses.

So my cool point score is something like two now. Exciting. I feel almost on my way to being not quite cool.
