I have a Facebook friend (whom I’ve never met, which is so frequent these days!) who is of a more literary bent than I am. I’m the ever so casual writer, using more common language of the day than is good for anyone, like gonna, ya, gotta, gimme, geez, and a bevy of other crucifixions of the English tongue.
So she has a blog. Naturally. And I love to read it, because it reminds me that I do love language, and the beauty of words, and layered meanings and quality writing, even though I abuse it so terribly these days.
I want you to see her post from today. I guarantee you’ll enjoy it if you have an interest in any of these:
- Nicole Kidman
- Norah Ephron
- Heartburn, with Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson
- the American flag
- Minute Rice
Now if you find it hard to believe that these things have much in common, you’ll be delighted by Kitti Carriker’s post today in The Quotidian Kit. Take a read. You’ll enjoy it!
