You may have noticed from the posting times lately that I’m pretty much rolling out of bed and writing something–maybe not the best plan, since it leads to obcervations like this:

1. Orrin Hatch’s re-election billboards (of which there are two I have to see on the way home from my parents’ house) make him look like a cadaver.

2. The word “whiskey” came from Scottish Gaelic uisge beatha and Irish uisce beatha, both from the Latin aqua vitae, or “water of life.”

Tomorrow: The etymology of gin! Oh, boy!
