A way with words

Thoughts on the selective butchering of the English language

While browsing the fashion collages posted at Polyvore the other day (polyvore.com), I clicked on a link for a brooch that had caught my eye and received the following message: “This item appears to be out of stock.

Back to school

The unintended side effect of being a parent

By Aaryn Belfer
If you were to offer me $10 million to do high school over again, I would turn you down before you could finish your sentence. It wouldn’t matter if I were allowed to take with me all the hindsight I’ve collected since tossing my mortar board out the window of my mother’s white Toyota Corolla with the lapis-blue interior. You could sweeten the pot with Elin Nordegren’s $100-million divorce settlement from her naughty little Tiger and I might entertain reliving the misery.
