Lenticular clouds (AKA altocumulus clouds) at the circus.

San Francisco, CA


  1. I'm pretty sure we'd become instant best friends the moment we met, Carly. "Lenticular (aka altocumulus)" Oh, gosh, you're great.

  2. I'm positive of it, and your uses of "lenticular" and "bramble" are only the beginning. I cannot wait until you guys meet at some point. However, I demand that I be present.

  3. Haha. I can't wait to meet, and Steph being there is a prerequisite, me thinks. I love the word "thicket" and it is not one I use much, so I will have to find more ways to work that into my everyday vocab. I wonder if I can come up with a simile with it and turn it into one of my commonly used phrases.

    Is "thick as a thicket" already in use? As in, "Boy that Greta, she really is thick as a thicket. She doesn't really catch on very quick, does she."

    (Now I could have used a question mark at the end of that last sentence, but I just learned that it's optional - at least in the UK - because it's a rhetorical questions. Thank you "Eats, Shoots and Leaves." I highly recommend that book, by the way.)

  4. You know, most of the time when people use people in examples they use names like Sally and Mary and other such names as that. Now Greta-- that is a great name.

    Also, thank you for the punctuation lesson. I'm going to have to read that book now. It is on my reading list.

    P.S. Are you guys Goodreads buddies yet? You're both on there.
