Internet users are definitely changing the way we speak and read English.
The Oxford English Dictionary is now adding some new words such as LOL (laughing out loud), OMG (Oh My God) and ♥ (to heart) as real words worthy of etymological recording.
Read the Huffington Post article about it here.

One day in the park
I had quite a surprise.
I met a girl who had many eyes.
She was really quite pretty
(and also quite shocking!)
and I noticed she had a mouth,
so we ended up talking.
We talked about flowers,
and her poetry classes,
and the problems she’d have
if she ever wore glasses.
It’s great to now a girl
who has so many eyes,
but you really get wet
when she breaks down and cries.

One of the things I like about reading my favourite journalists or writers is that they always introduce me to something new to read. I’ve just got acquainted to two fantastic magazines: The Believer and The Word. This blog is a little slow with its posts uptade, but you are always welcome to visit it and check the links we’ve got here.

The subjects that inspire me to come and post something are not always pleasant. This week I learned an expression I hadn’t read before: PASS WIND.
I loved it. I think it’s a polite way of saying fart, or not?
And today I came across this very useless article about fart:
10 Things You Didn’t Need to Know About Fart.
Ok, it’s useless. I’m sorry.
