Some Things Just Shouldn't Be Flavored That Way

Does anybody remember Dum-Dum suckers? Those little tiny ones that you end up getting at family restaurants and things? Well, I just started to eat one that was "butter popcorn" flavored. All I have to say is that is one of the biggest flavor mistakes anyone has ever made. I mean, who the hell wants to suck on something that tastes like stale buttered popcorn? I really don't know what the heck they were thinking to create a flavor like that.
clochard (n. kloh-SHAR)
: tramp, vagrant
Why such a fancy French word for a bum? The truth of the matter is, nine times out of ten, you will find clochard used for not just any bum, but a French bum -- even more particularly, a Parisian bum. And, sometimes, it's even a certain type of Parisian bum -- a type that has been romanticized in literature and is part of the local color. Nevertheless, as francais as this word (which comes from the French verb clocher, meaning to limp) may seem, its regular appearance in English sources since 1937 makes it an English word, too.
I'm tired. I've been tired for quite awhile now and I really should go to bed. I'm glad to see that certain people are updating again. And no, you haven't managed to alienate me yet. I'm just really bad about sending people e-mail. Your poor diary...it must be sad that you didn't wait a minute. Ha. Were you neglecting to sleep again?
