1. Good: this article about linguistic pet peeves. As someone who has them, I enjoyed it, but I take issue with the author’s use of persons regarding the 5,000 fans. Yes, the number is specific, but clearly, it is also an estimate, so non-specific at the same time. More controversy here.
2. Betta: Introducing our new betta, Danny. (He’s red.)
3. Best: This “My Funky Valentine” episode of Modern Family. This is the best new sit-com I’ve seen in a long while, and this episode made me laugh until I could hardly breathe. Oddly, this is a good thing. Warning, the husband is often too stupid to be funny, but mostly, even he is worth watching. Give it a minute (or 22), but hurry. This episode is on Hulu for only another three days.
