It’s been a weird month. No doubt the world is about to get a whole lot weirder.
Some things I don’t mind so much. The working-from-home aspect, for example. I’m not a people-person at the best of times, and now I’m being encouraged not to socialise or get within about a metre, two’s better, of others. The weird thing is how much more inclined I am to work when at home. I’m still trying to establish a proper routine, though, with breaks and things. It’s easy to forget them, with no colleagues around to remind me. Especially when I can get a cup of tea whenever I fancy. If only I had a kitten as an office-companion.
The empty shelves in supermarkets, that’s less nice. It makes it much harder to plan a week’s menu if you can’t guarantee the ingredients. Mind you, it’s interesting to see the things people won’t buy, even in a crisis. Like radishes. I think there’ll be a lot more foodie-experiments in the near future.
Anyway, this month, the words have been a bit more random:
Shenaniganist – one who participates in shenanigans
Next tomorrow – the day after tomorrow
Dicker (intransitive) – to dither, vacillate, hesitate
Stegophilist – one who enjoys climbing the outside of buildings
Amblygon – a triangle with one obtuse angle (in later use, any geometric figure with one or more obtuse angle)
