I start my early mornings with email; the daily piece from the Visual Thesaurus is always worth my time. I believe I mentioned previously that I joined up, just to support the concept of people blogging about words and maintaining their excellent visual database.
Check them out. This morning’s blog resonated strongly with me, as I have very definite feelings about words I like, words I don’t. I think it’s funny that one of the most hated words in English is “moist”, because I very much like words that sound like what they are.
And, for extra credit, they referenced Python.
Other email was equally inspiring. I got this nice offer from a “woman” hoping to meet a “man”.
“Hello! My dear far friend! Hundreds of kilometres dividing us from each other, but in love there can be boundaries. I’m beautiful and tender woman who dreams of love. I’d like to meet a man who has strong will, intelligence, and kind heart. I count on a strong relationship. My favorite man should be attractive, kind and non-conflicted.”
All of this helps distract from annoyances like UPS, possibly the least useful company on Earth to call on the phone. My driver showed up last night with a ground label for an air pickup, and I had to simply hope for the best at dispatch. Naturally, they can’t help me find my unarrived proofs without a tracking number. Which I didn’t get. Ah, UPS, I loathe your phone service.
