i've learned something new.

we all know what anoraks are, right? Those parka type coats.
Well, here's an alternate use....and I like it.

In Britain, anorak is also a somewhat pejorative term for people whose interests are perceived to be nerdy, or who have more expertise in some arcane topic than seems altogether rational; the usage comes from the popularity of anoraks and parkas among train spotters.

oh,and one more thing. Is that a dare?

Yes, fans. The long (sooooo looooong) wait is over. Sasha returns.

"Is that a dare?"

Unverified rumor: the next post on Sasha's blog will be entitled "I double-dog dare Joan to link to this."

And I agree with nm, a sasha-ernest encounter should be on the books. Take that child to seattle! And nm, share Ernest's blog.
