Perusing the news and Slanguage!
OR do not sweat the small stuff! HA! A ‘cool’ saying back in my junior high days! Sweatology, a recent article from the New York Times caught my eye! Quite possibly because we have just come out of a three week intense high humidity weather system! This morning, I was up and running around at 5 am [who know why] to 50 degrees and total calm. What a relief this is! http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/14/health/14swea.html?8dpc=&_r=1&adxnnl=1&oref=slogin&adxnnlx=1187101031-LLPgoK08hNxZDlP03vwwpg The tomatoes are coming on like Gang Busters; [Gangbusters has been used as an adverb since the 1970s, usually in the phrase go gangbusters 'to be extremely successful or vigorous’] they so love the high humidity. Hummmmmmmm perchance the saying now there is one Hot Tomato is really about Gardening? Ha can ya DIG it? Heck back in the day I sported a hair cut called a Duck Tail. A way of combing your hair in the back. Instead of combing your hair straight down in the back, you would comb both sides in towards the middle and then, with the end of the comb, part it down the middle. http://cougartown.com/slang.html Great site for some humor as in this one: Back then ~~~ Thongs In the 60's, thongs were something you wore on your feet. Thought of that Quacked me up! Ok enuff silliness back to Painting! Linda and I have made a template for the entire woodwork casing of the windows, doors and fireplace…now it begins!
