Did You Know? - The 8th most common New Year's resolution is to improve a relationship

Only around 40% of us will even make a resolution. While nearly all of those vows err on the side of improvement (e.g. start exercising, improve your finances, quit smoking), the 8th most common resolution is to get along better with someone else, according to a 2017 Harris poll. So what’s the number one New Year’s resolution? Weight loss (duh).

Did You Know? - In English we have a few different ways to write the sound of a kiss: muah, smack, xxx. They get the idea across, but none of them imitate the actual sound of a kiss. Other languages have the same problem. In Thai it's chup, in German, schmatz, in Greek, mats-muts, in Malayalam, umma, in Japanese, chu. There are two common elements in kiss words across languages. First, a kiss word will usually have a sound made by pressing the lips together (m, p, b), which approximates the lip pursing of a real kiss. In addition, or instead, it may have a sharp, "noisy" sound (ch, ts, k) that approximates the air intake "click" of a real kiss.

What's needed for a true kiss sound is a way to represent the smacking sound caused by the intake of air through closed lips. And linguistics has one! The kiss sound is technically a bilabial lingual ingressive click. "Bilabial" because of the lips, "lingual ingressive" because the air intake is caused by a pressure drop in the mouth caused by action of the tongue (in other words, sucking) and "click" for the pop of release from the pressure change.

Friends... It's what it is all about

Seriously...

A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.

New Years Eve is the only acceptable time to wear body glitter without being mistaken for a stripper

I'll remember 2018 like it was yesterday

Dear God, my prayer for 2018 is a FAT bank account and a THIN body. Please don't mix it up like you did this year.

Did You Know? - Southerners eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day for good luck. Thought to have been derived from a Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) custom, Americans in the South annually gobble black-eyed peas. Most Southerners (and many historians) maintain the tradition began to take hold stateside when the first Shepari Jews moved to Georgia in the 1730s. By the end of the Civil War, the Rosh Hashanah tradition had evolved into a widespread practice in the South, enjoyed by both Jews and gentiles.
