Words, recently

I feel like we all know and have accepted by now that not only am I the kind of person who would keep the Merriam-Webster Dictionary app ($3.99) on the homescreen of her phone but would also have it stocked with a list of ~200 favorite words. I'm a lot like that bone collector in the movie The Bone Collector starring famed bone-collecting duo Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie, only my cool smartphone word collection is 100% bone-free. For the time being, at least. And I've never actually seen that movie so I have zero idea who's collecting the bones or why. As with most things in life, I operate on a need-to-know basis when it comes to bone collections, and since it hasn't come up on any recent conference calls or anything, I'm a little in the dark. Also sometimes I type things just to type; I trust this is not news to you.
