Ever heard that word before, “updation”? It was a neologism my husband learned from his computer programming colleagues back in Silicon Valley. As of this typing, the internet is currently torn between declaring it “not a word” and “totally a word, in India”. More than half of my husband’s coworkers at the time were from […]
So I think we all understand by now, that all the Mayans were planning to do was “buy new calendars”, right? Good. Welcome to 2013, dear readers. There is so much I’d like to write about.
