one more reason to love the OED

Added Bonus: Irregardless of what you think, "conversate" is a word - Ta-Nehisi Coates

its editor at large, jessie sheidlower, drops both 'ass' and 'fuck.'

(can you tell i'm procrastinating? i really don't want to rewrite this frakking proposal - so much easier to go directly to the district office, rather than this lobbyist shit.)

Again with the "frakking" trigger: Today is my first day of unemployment and I saw for the first time a preview for the new episode of BSG - it gave me chills.

I can't wait.

I don't have cable - so have to wait for itunes or something, which kind of sucks - and means I have to avoid the internet till I see it so I don't see any spoilers!

Me too. I'm glad they pushed up the date for new episodes to Jan instead of March/april, which was the original date for season 4.5.

I think 'frak' needs to be in the OED. I certainly use it and 'fuck' interchangeably and I think it has entered the lexicon, don't you? (If only by a sub cultural group but so have other words-like truthiness.)

Once it gets going I will try not to spoil things here!
