So I have had the whole day off, and I have yet to SoCS-ify my blog. That is, no SoCS-ification has taken place today and today is almost over! The prompt for today is -cat- and any and all words being or containing it. As I tried to extricate some -cat- things from the ol’ SoC, I realized that -cat- is contained in all words ending with -cation. And there are a lot of them! I like thinking of vacations, that’s fun. Education is a good thing, usually. It is not good, however, to be implicated in any illegal duplication of any sort of copyrighted publications. (therefore I try to always properly attribute or use “public domain” stuff!) I also found out that “Frenchification” is actually a word: ▸ verb: make French in appearance or character (“Let’s Frenchify the restaurant and charge more money”) Of course. And that, my friends is why “green beans” cost, according to the USDA website, $2.14 per pound on average for fresh ones, or .83 per pound for canned, while “french green beans” or “haricots verts” cost much much more. Purists might say they are different species and that “haricots verts” are much thinner and finer, but for reference, here are some pictures I found:
Hmmm…and with that “Frenchification” of my blog, I bid you good night, chers lecteurs !
Oh, and here’s some more “frenchification” , something I found on *gasp* YouTube, and which had cute, er, cats in it. Enjoy!
