Am I the only person who has never seen a Harry Potter movie or read a Harry Potter book?
I do have a sense of the Pottermania that has engulfed the country for years-- can't help but pick up a slight bit of Potter info just by turning on the tube now and then.
But really, I know next to nothing about the character/books/movies.
And I intend to keep it that way.
I just wonder if there is anyone else out there like me.
Of more interest to me are some of the new words that Merriam-Webster will be adding to their next edition of the dictionary.
ginormous - combines “gigantic” and “enormous,” --I have a ginormous love of this word!
microgreen - a shoot of a standard salad plant. (It must be some shoot, because the Agave restaurant in Vegas sells their poblano cream and microgreen salad for $24.) Actually I have always thought of micrgreens as any tiny version of a salad green. Their definition makes it sound like it's one piece of a green, not a mini version of the green.
There are something like 100 new words.
I recently read that some dictionary was putting "EVOO" in their dictionary all because of Rachael Ray's obsessive use of the acronym. I guess when you're hot, you're hot.
