Toboggan: hat or sled?

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

It's that age-old bafflement: the word "toboggan" -- is it a hat or a sled? And how in the world did this noun come to describe two such varied objects? Is it a coincidence that they both have to do with winter?

And I challenge you to present me with another word that serves the function of descriptive noun for two VERY different objects. I cannot think of one.

So which is it to you, a sled or a hat?

Half Marathon

Friday, September 05, 2008

I vow here today to sincerely try my best to train and complete the 2008 St. Jude Half Marathon. I created and printed a training schedule for Jonathan and myself today, so now that I have a physical representation of the work entailed in this endeavor, it would seem more feasible to complete. Perhaps.

Who’s with me? Roll call.
