The thoughts and theories of a guy who basically should have gone to bed hours ago.

I know, I know - what's the point? But look at it this way - I stayed up late writing it, but you're reading it...

Let's call ourselves even & move on, OK?

"Google" earns official verb status


The latest edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines the word "google" as a verb. It also contains other words and phrases I figured were already in there, such as "drama queen," "biodiesel" and "bling." And then there are those I wouldn't have guessed, like "mouse potato," "soul patch" and "himbo."

I understand the need to keep the language current, so that future generations can look up the words they use regularly. The real question, though, is this: who uses a dictionary anymore? If you need to know how to spell a word these days, you'd just..er...what's the word? Oh yeah, you'd just google it!
