... that today is National Grandparent's Day?
... that the name 'Uncle Sam' was first coined on this date in 1813?
... that the word 'blog' is shortened from 'weblog'? In particular, I like the part of Wiktionary's definition that says ... "... especially as dealing with reflections or opinion, and typically incorporating links to other articles." Well, shuckeydurn! That's mine in a nutshell. Whodathunk it?
I hope mine is not a 'blahg' (dull and uninteresting)! I wonder if I'm a 'blogoholic' (a person addicted to blogging)? Or a 'blogophile' (a person who is fond of or obsessed with blogs or blogging)? I'm probably a blogophile. Certainly I enjoy the 'blogosphere'! Mine is not a 'gophlog', 'photoblog', or 'vlog', and most definitely not a 'splog' (a fake blog used to generate link spam)!!
... that the word 'y'all' is currently in a transition phase? All y'all know that that phrase is how I like to use the plural form. In other words, I like to say that 'y'all' is singular, and 'all y'all' is plural.
At the present time, of course, my usage is incorrect. Ask me if I care.
... that I cannot find a reference for the phrase 'fixin' to', which is in common usage in the South, particularly here in Texas. It means 'getting ready to' or 'about to', such as ... It's fixin' to rain. (or) I'm fixin' to go to the store.
If you find a reference, please let me know where, OK? I've been in Texas going on 40 years now, and have heard it commonly used ever since I first got here.
I hope all y'all are planning just a wonderful day!
