More Words to Kill By (A Semi-New Zed Feature)

community of learners Wait, doesn't "community of learners" refer to a "school"? What's wrong with just saying "school"? Too boring? Too easy? Too accurate?

dude I am not a dude. Do I look like a dude?? No, I look like a cat. You can't call a cat a dude. In fact you can't call a WOMAN a dude, fool. Don't dude me.

pick one’s brain Go ahead. I dare you. Do it for the Gipper.

holiday tree For something like 1500 years pine trees decorated for Christmas were referred to as "Christmas trees." Then an extreme lunatic fringe (educators?) decided it was less politically correct to call it a "Christmas tree" than a "holiday tree." Warning: DO NOT hold your breath waiting for me to call a "Christmas tree" a "holiday tree"--or you will surely die of self-imposed asphyxiation.

Actually, after my sister had her brain tumor removed, I told her she was one of the few people who could say she had someone pick her brain. ;)

I like your new feature, dudette!

Thanks, Lynda.

When you were on Blog Radio with Mr. Fab I thought to myself, she's so smart--she must be part of a "community of learners."

Zed, I'm glad you have explained this to me. I had zero idea what a holiday tree was, and was afraid to ask. I assumed it was some variation of a family tree. Vacations thru the ages...

Hey Sans, I like to help whenever and wherever I can. Just consider The World According to Zed is a service blog. :)

A Community of Learners? No, just me. LOL

I'm a loner.
