Wanderlust of the mind (from a Wall Street Journal article Monday 7/28/2014)
Ohnosecond (from How-To Geek) – An Ohnosecond (short for Oh no! Second) is the very short moment of time it takes you to realize that you just messed up in a big way while working on your computer.
We learned that:
July 31 is the birthday of JK Rowling, the author of Harry Potter. She doesn’t have a middle name and the “K” is for Kathleen, which is her grandmother’s name. She received an advance of $2,500 for the first Harry Potter book, which was published in 1997.
We revisited a poem by our favorite author, Anonymous:
Early one morning, late at night,
Two dead boys went out for a fight.
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard their noise,
And came and shot the two dead boys.
If you don’t believe this lie is true,
Go ask the blind man, he saw it, too.
How was your week?
