Came across this AWESOME site yesterday. It has a list of words no longer in the dictionary, and challenges us to adopt one and promise to use it frequently. What fun! Check it out and adopt a word today!
Wouldn't it be interesting if people could check into each others minds and see what's there?
Maybe I've wondered one too many times what my husband is thinking (which is almost never what I think he's thinking!). I've been at work and felt some one's eyes on me and am afraid they're thinking the worst when they're really thinking about the last episode of America's Got Talent and how they're going to get that stain out of their favorite shirt.
Sometimes people tell me things and I doubt what they say. Sometimes I want to know more than they are willing to say. Sometimes I'm just plain nosy - and please, God, forgive me for that!
So here's the question of the day:If you could have total access to some one's mind for 15 minutes, who would it be and why?
Tell me what you're thinking and I won't need to pick you! As for me, I have to go with President Obama. Who wouldn't want to be a fly in the Oval Office?
Well, me hearties, I thought I'd start at the very beginning with numero uno ... the numeral 1 ... first thing's first ...
For the record, I'm not a pirate ...
I thought Uno was a clever name for my first post. Still do. But it didn't end there. It lead to a mad Google search, which is part of what life's all about (albeit a minuscule part) - to find out the exact definition of uno.
Well, blow me down! Here's a sampling of what I found (with a thankful nod to Wikipedia). It turns out uno is more than just a number.
Uno may refer to:
1. A card game 2. A political organization in Ecuador: Una Nueva Opcion 3. A bus company in the United Kingdom 4. A restaurant franchise (pizza anyone?) 5. A small town in Kentucky 6. A song by Muse 7. A Swedish sports car - the UNO 001
Just a few more ...
8. Universal Network Objects - the software component model used in OpenOffice.org 9. A cosmetic brand by Shiseido 10. A person's name, either first or last ("Yo, Uno! C'mere ...")
I feel like David Letterman. "The Top Ten Uses for the Word Uno."
