Did you know

that messrs is the plural of Mr.? I'm reading some work stuff and kept coming across it, and thanks to google and an online dictionary I now know what it means.

Have you learned anything new lately?

p.s. I'm grateful for my ottoman. In the toolshed the sofas were short, and there were no ottomans; I'm glad to be back to a chair/ottoman that allows leg extension and naps.

I don't know what an ottoman is... then google told me ;) Trusty Google - it's my answer to everything unknown. If anyone asks me something I don't know the answer to I always reply with, "Just google it."

I'm glad someone else in the world didn't know what an ottoman was-when I met my husband he had always just called it a "damn foot stool".

I just learned exactly what a short-sale is. I had heard the term before but never bothered to look into what it meant.

15 men have their penis chopped off each year.

I was searching for some random back-to-school facts and instead hit a "random" facts one. That one kind of stuck out in my head.

i wish i had more fun fun facts. the only one i can think of right now is that the "(not so) Great Salt Lake" is the largest saltwater lake in the Western Hemisphere and the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi River. it's 3 to 4 times saltier than the ocean and it's absolutely DISGUSTING. i know this because we decided to go there and my husband actually swam in it.

yay for fun fun facts. wish i had more to share.

Today I learned that you live down the hall from one of my law school classmates; and in the car on the way home from school William told me that many penguins are losing their homes due to global warming. (He is very. concerned. about this)
