Is it really, really nerdy to love the Oxford English Dictionary? I just figured out that I can log into the on-line version through the library website. I’d be very happy to spend the rest of the day looking up random words.
Procrastination. First used in 1548. “Without longer procrastinacion, he assembled togither.”
Tired. First used in 1400 AD. “The hors was tyryt, and mycht no forthyr pas.”
Vacation. First used in 1386 (by Chaucer!). “Whan he hadde leyser and vacacioun From oother worldly occupacioun.”
That’s what I need. A vacacioun.
