A quick burst of links before I head off to bed.

  • Tristin Hopper of The National Post writes about Canadianisms that English speakers elsewhere in the world don’t understand. A winter hat is called a toque, damn it!
  • Tom Scocca of Gawker has a lengthy essay explaining how snark arose as a response to the insincerity of smarm.

That’s enough jibber-jabber. Man, 2014 is young, and I’m already tired. *sigh*
