1) Last night I had a very vivid dream wherein I was renovating a really amazing old lighthouse to be my new living quarters ...... in Utah.
Yeah, it made sense in the dream.
2) My favorite misspelled word of the day comes from a 7th grader's poetry test. While trying to identify some personification in a poem by Tennyson, a girl wrote, "Ring out, wild berries, and let him die!"
(In case you're not an English major, the poem is called "Ring Out, Wild Bells.")
3) My favorite bit of language cleverness for today comes from one of my ESL (English as a second language) students. We've been working on words having to do with climate, seasons, and weather. She was supposed to be describing a cartoon picture of a snowstorm, and, not quite recalling how to say, "It is snowing," she came up with "It is raining snow." I liked it.
