I've been at the Women in Film and Television International's Summit in Toronto all week, so I'm pretty full right now. You can watch some of the summit on line, which is cool. I especially liked the "glass ceiling" panel with Ann Medina, Trina McQueen, and Phyllis Yaffee on Tuesday, July 17th. These women were persistent pioneers who never stopped following their life's passions.
This week's quick Thursday Thirteen comes from my very sleep deprived braincells.
Danika's Thirteen Favourite Words (believe it or not... in order of preference):
13) and my all time favourite word: pamplemousse
If you asked me why I liked these particular words, it would be a different answer for each. Some I like the way they sound when I say them. Some I like the meaning and the sound of the word. Some I have a memory or emotional attachment to. Like periwinkle and chartreuse - I remember pulling those crayons out of my crayola box and being thrilled that colours could be named such things. I wrote a poem about a girl named Chartreuse Integrity when I was in school.
And pamplemousse, well, how in the world could you NOT love that word?
