My Boy came home from an Anthropology class the other day telling me about an exercise the professor had them do.  They broke up into groups and each group had to make up and new word with it's definition and then they have the rest of the semester to see if they could get this new word to take among their peers. 

I ran across a word recently and discovered  it's origins are pretty new in our vocabulary, 1976 to be exact. That's the same year I was married and knew so little about computers other than they took up so much room in a building and they needed special air conditioning requirements in order to keep them cool.

And now on computers so small they're part of your phone, you see a Meme (that's the word; pronounced Meem) pop up pretty regularly in blog posts.  It's a very popular thing to do.  I found The Queen's Meme website and found a meme I thought would be fun.
