Oh, where does the time go?


If anyone's still reading my blog (ahem), I have to apologize for not posting very often. With a 6 month old daughter, a busy job and a book due tomorrow to my publisher (aaack!), I've been fairly preoccupied.

However, that does not mean I have not been using and thinking of funny words all the time. So...here's the latest:

funny word of the day: quaff

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

: to drink deeply
transitive verb
: to drink (a beverage) deeply
quaff noun
quaff·er noun

Examples of QUAFF

  1. We stopped at a bar and quaffed a few beers.
  2. car out of the snowdrift, we were ready to quaff some hot chocolate>
My own example: Once I hand in the manuscript for my book, BE YOUR OWN BEST PUBLICIST: How to Use PR Techniques to Get Noticed, Hired and Rewarded at Work, written with my talented friend and co-author Meryl Weinsaft Cooper, I will definitely be quaffing some wine or Champagne in celebration!
