I know, I know – it seems really early to do a weekly roundup, but tomorrow is Independence Day here in the states, and I already intend to be in a barbecue-induced coma on Friday, so I’m cutting things a little short (okay, fine, I’m cutting them really short).
I’ll be back next week, when I’ll conclude my tales from Boston and finally, FINALLY tell you all about Paris. And eclairs. And macarons. And all the other things I mashed into my mouth in a frenzy.
Until then, enjoy these links.
We might be celebrating tomorrow, but July 4th isn’t actually the day we declared independence.
Apparently, back in the 1950s, someone coined a term for the gender-neutral plural of nieces and nephews.
