Went to Oxford and spent the day at Magdalen College (home of two of my favorite writers who otherwise have nothing in common – C.S. Lewis and Oscar Wilde), had lunch on the Thames, and then dashed off to the Oxford University Press for a surprisingly engrossing lecture on the Oxford English Dictionary! The people who work on that thing truly love words, it’s an education just to hear them talk! Our lecturer’s favorite word: Twiffler! It’s the plate that’s a size smaller than a dinner plate and a size larger than a salad plate; Dutch in origin, it comes from a word that means “two feelings,” so it literally means a plate that can’t make up it’s mind.
