The morning coffee is OK

One of the most humorous things that is said to me (or overheard) in daily conversation — or, more likely, griping on the internet and television — is in regards to how “kids these days” do not use the English language properly.

This is humorous, because the English language changes so much (and so rapidly), and one can find similar complaints about their generation. And their parents’ generation.

Unsurprisingly – and amusingly – yet another word has jumped up on our radar as a one-time bastardization of the language. This time, it is the ubiquitous OK which was once laughed at by the literate elite.

Your Halloween coffee

If you’re like me, you will be spending much of the day watching scary movies. Here is a list of scary movies I won’t be watching this year.


I’m not in charge of the movie selection.

Halloween is, of course, a time at which many young ladies briefly become exhibitionists, using fancy dress as an excuse.

Here are some sexy costumes best avoided.

Panicking this morning?

Do you need a last minute costume, or to quickly carve a pumpkin that will impress all your friends?

Evil Mad Scientist has some Halloween Projects for you to steal.

Want to make your home creepy for visitors? Have a bunch of Barbie dolls lying around?

Then we suggest that you make yourself a Barbie Zombie Garden.

Alternatively, you could work on making an area look haunted … using lego.
This Stormtrooper Costume is a quick and easy Halloween costume, for those facing party emergencies.
