rather chilly

21 January 2004

this winter i’ve read about a million weblogs that say ‘it’s frigid outside!’ and each time i’ve ranted inside my head: ‘that isn’t what frigid means! it doesn’t mean it’s like a fridge out there!’ i say to myself.

this morning i came across the word again and ranted to myself for the thousandth time. i pulled my concise oed down off the shelf above my computer to show everyone i was right (there’s only me here, i’m like that).


  1. very cold. …

ooops. dictionary.com says so too.

actually it’s quite mild here today.
