Wednesday Word of the Day

Pettifog \PET-ee-fog\, verb:
1. To bicker or quibble over trifles or unimportant matters.
2. To carry on a petty, shifty, or unethical law business.
3. To practice chicanery of any sort.

~Now isn't this a word!  I would never have put this word with the definition, it reminds me more of Southern belles and puffy skirts...not bickering and shiftiness.~

Pettifog comes from the Middle Dutch word voeger meaning one who arranges things and the word petty meaning insignificant.

A Day in the Life of Serena

Song of the Day:  She by Green Day  "She... She screams in silence.  A sullen riot penetrating through her mind"  You know what I love about this band?  Meaningful poetry set to loud, driving rock music.  Yep, a fabulous combination, IMHO.  :)
Currently Reading:  More Than a Mistress by Mary Balogh.  A fabulous historical with strong main characters.  An enjoyable read, for sure.
Currently Writing:  Ideas and plot for werewolf story.  Editing:  The Submission - still working through those "was'" or would that be "was-i?"  That one's for you Darling Diva!  lol
Quote of the Day
Imagination is the golden-eyed monster that never sleeps. It must be fed; it cannot be ignored.

  1. Wow, I can relate with the words to that song.

    Pettifog... all I can think of is a small fog, or small foggy mind... lol...

  2. Me too, Savanna. You know though, the song always makes me smirk and smile. It has a faboo chorus and check out the beginning of the next verse...

    She's figured out
    All her doubts were someone else's point of view

    If you get a chance to hear it, take it. It's worth it. :)

  3. Yeah, I wish I had more time and a better way to listen to more music...

    Those are fab lyrics and so absolutely true... wouldn't it be cool if we could all awaken to wherever we've been programmed in that way... and, as humanity, let it go... it would be a whole new, much happier world. IMO...

    Although, AWAKENING is flash-firing across the world.
