Writer's Block

The USA is the place I was born. Canada is the place I was raised. Taiwan is the place in my heart.

I just found this very witty "little" website that's amused me for past (oh I'm embarassed to say how long) almost hour: http://www.word-detective.com. It's an amazing resource for those of you interested in the origin of words and catch phrases. Ever wondered about the origins of phrases such as "mind your p's and q's", "kick the bucket" or "in cahoots"... Or about where the words "brouhaha" or "hoodwink" came from?

Yes, I'm serious... I'm going to be visiting this website again since I can't possibly read through it all and perhaps I'll even submit some of my own burning questions.
