The Hot Word

I love words. I actually collect them. In notebooks, in folders, on my computer. Cool words or phrases that stand out to me in some way. My dad is a historical librarian, and every year on valentines day, he brings a poster home for me from The Rare Book School. They are large white posters with bold black writing that say things like, "We see things not as THEY are but as WE are." I don't hang them up, but I do keep them in a binder. Anyway, if you haven't found it on your own, The Hot Word is an interesting site that discusses the meaning or history of words. After all, you never know when you'll need to know what pareidolia is. It might come in handy when you play scrabble.
