    You know what word I think doesn’t sound like a word after I’ve said it a bunch of times? The.

    I agree with all of them, but especially “glue”. AND most especially when you say “super glue”, the “super” sounds normal but the “glue” remains a throat-clearing non-word utterance.

    also, “gooya.”

    Sunnuvah: So, I’m sitting here with AJ . I clicked onto your blog because he said you got some good posts I should check out sometime and I made that sometime happen this morning. As I’m counting on my fingers; hoping that before I get to thirty there will already have been some kind of blog magic transference happening, (quite a sight),…it happens by the 14th count every time. I went for manual and origami. I needn’t repeat more. I was convinced right there.

    Now, did I WILL this to happen or is it your blog magic touch?

    Nicoletta – It’s WFME magic.
