    Congratulations on your book deal Marina!!

    This book will be an awesome way to get more people interested in all things etymology as not everyone would use or have access to the internet.

    I wish you the best of luck with getting your book completed, I know we will look forward to expanding our knowledge :cool:

    (about the radio show) It was a fun show :) I cracked up when Stretch was saying maybe he should go to russia and say puntanka and vodka :lol: I’m sure he’ll live his dream someday :grin:

    honestly, I thought the show was embarrassing and belittling. I had to turn it of half way through as it became apparent that it wasn’t going to improve. I understand that there is an audience for this type of show, but in future I’ll reserve my interest in your work for your normal web site lessons. I do hope that YOU enjoyed doing the show as it would be a great pity to think that you felt the same as me and still had to go through with it.

      vbcham, the show is really not for everyone. As you’ll notice, I have approached teaching etymology in a manner not typical to the average etymologist. I am trying to reach as broad an audience as possible, that’s why you’ll see me go on many different types of shows on TV, on the net and on radio.

      This is just another outlet where I am able to expose etymology to another group of people who would not normally pay attention to the subject.

      I do have fun on the show, otherwise I wouldn’t do it… plus it’s helping me prepare myself for all kinds of interviews in the future.. but you are correct, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea :-)

        I taught ‘Street Talk’ at UCLA. It’s funny that no other teachers were really interested and I said “sure absolutely”. Students loved getting certain words & phrases that they’d heard (or were going to hear) in a trusted classroom setting, and I gave it to them thoroughly and scholarly. Fuc% in all forms, made them said “shit” until they sounded like they invented the word etc. There was no other class where the students were more grateful.

        Seems like you’re good at what you do, you have fun doing it,
        and now you’re working hard to make a career out of what you like :razz:

        If only everyone had the drive to do that… :wink:

        Besides, it’s nice to hear you laugh

      C’mon dude, girls just want to have fun!

    I’m sorry, this guy is way too much of a dork; over-thinking is never a problem for him it would instead be an unusual excercise. He’s got Cabo Wobble written all over him, am sure he’s got the t-shirt to prove it. He’s the voice in any party that’s scream WOOO at stupid times making people saying anything real repeat themselves. The only thing that saves the night from jerks like this is that they get drunk early & leave dribbling something about right-on ‘bro’.
    By the way ‘bro’ Linden Johnson got more than Kennedy according to the people who really know anything. This guy is a source for nothing other than cheap sloppy drinks. At least he’s not on welfare, but he will be some day.
