ah the bed frame

ashaBedFrame, originally uploaded by lwu81.

We finally FINALLY put together our bed frame and reorganized the bedroom a bit. Now there's this huge space under our bed that asha LOVES scampering around in at night (we found out last night when she got into a high energy mood!).

She also really likes batting at the curtains at the end of the bed, although she got sprayed for it once and was quite unhappy.

I've been studying for the damn GRE all weekend. Yesterday I drove down to the testing center in San Jose to practice since I hate getting lost when I'm stressed, and it will be crazy early in the morning when I'm driving on Wed.

I was quite happy we got a little rain this weekend. It smelled so nice!

a few new vocab words I've learned:
ingenue: a young girl
pancea: a cure-all
denouement: outcome
perquisite: the long form of perk (as in a perk that comes with the job)
panegyric: formal or elaborate praise in writing or oration
prolix: wordy
pithy: to the point

some people may have no idea what I'm talking about. But there's been this argument that I cannot say "I feel nauseous" because it is incorrect, and I should really say, "I feel nauseated."


well, Fu and I checked the OED last night. Oh my! lookie here... well well. So my usage IS in the OED. It is commonly accepted in the US and was also used in this form in the 17th century.

I'm almost done with the scarf I'm making for my Nai Nai. Mrs. M's scarf is going slowly because straight garter stitch is somewhat boring me. I really want to knit the Irish Hiking Scarf with some of the new yarn I scored and try out intarsia.
