word of the week: ha-ha

Ha-ha (n.) A sunk fence; a fence, wall, or ditch, not visible till one is close upon it.

You have to wonder a bit about the etymology. Is it 'ha-ha' as in "Yes, very clever, now help me up because my ankle's twisted and there's no way I can make it back to the manor on my own," or as in "Oh look, another trespassing idiot didn't look where he was going"?

  • february is apparently snow month this year

    I REALLY wish we still got snow days--February would've been nearly as much vacation as work, this year. :P

  • MOAR SNOW

    :cackles maniacally: Just in time, too--our front lawn was starting to show grass again. It's all safely covered up now!

  • let it snow, let it snow
