Wild Card Saturday May 3, 2008

Good morning Netizens...

Are you feeling globally warmed this morning? This is the first day of many, we hope, where the night time temperature stayed above freezing, and the garden gnomes did not have that expensive infernal electric heater running all night, huddling together out by the garden fence swearing a blue streak.

Fortunately I am staying warm here by the bank of computers, busily doing things for my clients that somehow eluded me all week, and although I tell myself I am making progress, I sometimes wonder, since this morning I took time off the clock to mix a Chopin Etude in E with Emmy Lou Harris just to see how it would sound. It was surprisingly delicate and yet interesting enough to retain it as an MP3 for future use.

There is no Word a Day today, since it is the weekend, and thus we may never know the synonym for "harpy", which was one of the week's more interesting words.

So, there you have the Wild Card for today.
