word of the day - genuflect

genuflect \JEN-yuh-flekt\, intransitive verb:
1. To bend the knee or touch one knee to the ground, as in worship.
2. To be servilely respectful or obedient; to grovel.


Genuflect is from Late Latin genuflectere, from Latin genu, "knee" + flectere, "to bend."

straight dope - foot binding

I've always been intrigued by the ancient custom in China of binding women's feet. I've never seen an actual picture of what they end up looking like but have heard them referred to as "lotus blossoms." Do they end up looking like a claw or just little tiny feet? Was this an attempt to further control women by crippling them so they couldn't get away? Jean, via AOL

text message from Joel, my Cab driving buddy -

Hmm...I wonder if he'll have a turtle-forehead like the movies, or be smooth like the old series?

Oh, by the Way, My name is Scotto, and I'm a dork.

Good News, boogaloos!

Gold! I've struck gold!

Apartment, allows Newton, good rent, within 3 blocks of my old place, so I don't have to relearn Neighborhoods. Open house is tomorrow at 2pm. *does the swim, then the monkey.

Oh, if it's good, and they're nice, I wonder if I could slip in there next week? Get all my moving done while mah sweetie is off doing other things elsewhere...

Welll, if anyone was going to send me stickers, wait until I post my new address.... Hoody Hoo!

More room for me, and my stuff, hopefully coming soon!
