Of course, that means that Monday's usual blog post will just be Forgotten English and nothing else, you lucky things. It also means that I won't be writing again until Tuesday. This is a good thing. It's a mini break before the final few thousand words of Overlord. I haven't decided how I am going to celebrate the book's completion. It's usually a bottle of red wine and chocolate. I might just take myself out to the movies. Thor looks like fun...
There isn't much to say. This marked the last week of Kung Fu training. Not that I've gone at all. I'm resting my foot so I can come back stronger next semester. Next semester starts that 3rd of next month. I can't wait to get back at it. I've gotten quite tense since I've stopped training.
Still don't know about my Equestrian Archery lessons yet. I hope I find out soon! I can't wait to get on a horse again. There will probably be pictures and photos to follow (this time around).
Right, I'm just procrastinating now. I should probably get to writing, so here's today's Forgotten English.
Of the wind, blowing with cold chilly gusts.
- G. Story's Dictionary of Newfoundland English, 1982
Faff, to blow in sudden gusts; Scotland, English North Country. Hence faffment, nonsense, balderdash; Lancashire.
- Joseph Wright's English Dialect Dictionary, 1898-1905
I think it would be safe to say that yesterday's weather was faffering. I'm not sure I used that in the correct manner. Oh well!
