Post Pwnd

for the title inspiration

I'm a geek with a penchant for puns, so when I saw an opportunity to use the "word" pwnd in a blog title... well, I couldn't resist. Besides, this is a blog about learning, and I'm hoping I was the first to introduce at least one of my three readers to to term.

Fess up now, please. You hadn't heard of something "pwnd" before, had you?

In other word news, it's official: "homeschool" is the proper way to write the word describing what we do.

And one more "linky" bit of news: If you're thinking about getting involved in the Rice Bag Project but have been wondering how/where/when you can donate and have your gift matched, you can read all about on the, aptly named, How to donate to the Sonlight Rice Bag Project page.

Doesn't get much better than that.

What? You want a real post now?


Sorry, it got pwnd by all the links above.

P.S. They say the best way to learn a new word is to use it several times right after you hear it. I have given you a head start on that.

HUH? I know it's late...but that looks more like a type-o than a word. : )

Thanks for ending my day on an educational note :) I have never heard the word before, you're right. Glad the article discussed how to say it. Once I thought of myself as pretty smart-I went to my husband and said we need a Wii (saying it like the letter Y). He asked me to repeat myself and I proudly explained what a Wii was (all the time saying "Y"). He smirked and said, "Wendy, I believe you are saying we need a Wii (Wee). " That's what you get when you try to show off what you learn on the SL forums!

Speaking of the forums, my daughter, Hollywood from the kids' forums says hello to you :)

Okay, I read the entry. I'm too old for that stuff! LOL! I'm no hacker!...unless you're talking about an upper-respiratory infection! Har har har! : )
Oh--Wendy...You're hysterical!

You are correct, Julie, it's not really a word in the proper sense, which is why I put it in quotes <smile>.

Wendy, there is always that disconnect with words we only ever read (especially with how completely "fluid" English is as a spoken language). There are plenty of words that I mispronounced (and a few I still do) because I got it first in writing.

Julie, that was funny. Again, I love puns, and that was beautiful.

So you glad you got the pun! Put it up and thought 'I am probably the only person in the world who thinks that is funny.' :)

Oh no, I loved your pun. In fact, I loved it so much I stole it! <smile>
