OK, let's get one thing out of the way right off the bat - I don't like EAUS. It's not a word. If you're naming two French bottled waters and you are looking for a plural of the French word for water, what you should find is "eaux." That's the plural of eau. I suppose we're Americans and we can do what we want with words we find here, but je n'aime pas ça et je vais le combattre jusqu'au bout!
So now that I've got that out of the way, let's grab the chalk and get cracking. We've got POOL-related words scattered all over the place: TOWELRACK, GIMMEABREAK, ONCUE, ONTHEBALL, and OUTOFPOCKET. Really, you'd want them in the pocket, but I know, I know...
I love the term PEPPERED (Bombarded, as with questions), and I often like my food PEPPERED, so that's win-win. And how funny is it that I just read about the spelling of KYIV earlier today? The Ukranians want that to be the official spelling because it is Ukranian, and Kiev is Russian. Why did I read this? Well, it's because some friends got us a subscription to a food service called "Universal Yums" for Christmas. I put the link in for your convenience, but I hesitate to actually recommend it, and not just because of the name. We got three boxes, with food from Italy, the Netherlands, and most recently, Ukraine. It's somewhat interesting, but the food samples seem a little like something you might get on a plane, and the little booklet with interesting facts about each country often has typos in it - and if you know anything about me, you know I'm a pedant about spelling. :) But honestly, expanding horizons is always a good idea, and I can't knock it entirely. If you're interested, try it yourself and let me know how you like it.
Anyway, it's a fine Monday. I like pool, and even the tortured fill like OHIOU made me smile.
Wouldn't it be funny if MANX were the plural of man? :P
