Reading is Fundamental - This is Your Brain on Cupcakes

Today's Top News

I learned that President Obama took his teleprompter to an elementary school to do a speech... proving that you don't need to know what to say as long as it's all typed up for you.

Today's Interesting Link

I'm not so sure about brain slug cupcakes. I'm not sure why they were a big hit today around Facebook. I'm sure they are yummy though even if I would feel the need to close my eyes before eating one or maybe to do that sorta look off to the side thing!

You can read more about the brain slug cupcakes here.

Today's Word of The Day

I've told you before that Facebook can be educational.  I learned a new word today.  It's something I've done, probably something you've done and what I can whip out and call my kids on in the future sometime when I think they are doing it.  If I do call my kids this then I'm going to make them go to the trouble of looking it up rather than just tell them.

So, here it is....

Main Entry: malinger

Function: intransitive verb
Inflected Form(s): ma·lin·gered; ma·lin·ger·ing
Etymology: French malingre sickly
Date: 1820
: to pretend or exaggerate incapacity or illness (as to avoid duty or work)

What did you learn on Facebook today?
