A Blogging Respite

While I take a rest, I will share this from the inbox (via strangecosmos.com):

For more than 30 years, New York magazine has run a contest in which contestants take a well-known foreign language expression, change a single letter, and provide a definition for the new expression. Feel free to take a stab at it. Or not. These are free and require no effort on your part. I've emboldened my favorites (because I know you care about these things). Enjoy. :-)
