OED! Woot!

When I went to Cal Poly, I had free access to the OED (that is, Oxford English Dictionary, to all you layfolk ;)). But when I graduated, I lost access via my Cal Poly login credentials. Sad panda.

But lo! The Seattle public library also has free access to the OED. Huzzah!

Yes, I am such a language weenie linguistics-phile that renewed access to the OED warrants a blog post. :)

"Linguini", the word is "linguini". Or "lingweenie" if you want to make the etymology transparent.

Lol, I hadn't seen it spelled that way before, but that's excellent. I'll have to pass it along to Jerry, since he's the one who started calling me a "language weenie."
