Listening to podcasts on the weekend I TWICE heard the word, amanuensis during panel discussions. It MUST be a word, because Firefox didn't underline it. I have to admit I don't think I've encountered it. Or if I have, I just bleeped over it and imagined the context. Now I am going to use it when I can, but I have no use for it. I should search our tech notes to see if Thesaurus-tech has been using it.


Did you hear there is an avocado crime-wave in New Zealand?

It makes me think of this very NSFW Oglaf comic.

I mean, what's more strangely adorable than an avocado begging for sex? "Sex with Avocado! Sex with Avocado!"

It was BBC's In Our Time. I don't think it was Melvyn Bragg, himself, but panelists. Ha! Maybe they were talking aloud the RD edition of Tess of the D'Ubervilles :)
