The Hollow Men by TS ElliotThis is the way the world endsThis is the way the world endsThis is the way the world endsNot with a bang but a whimper.http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/784/One of my favorite poems. :)
i don't know? chickens? :)the etymology of the word peckish might be interesting... "bull in a china shop" certainly was. Here's what I found, at least insofar as it goes in the States:this was possibly the first bull in a china shopand this was possibly the second known bull in an *actual* china shop, tho the expression was already in use by thenI don't have too much free time, really. I just like to learn things... er, procrastinate... er, learn things... :)
to submit the obvious . . . HOBBITS
In the same vein as the cookie monster,Winnie the Pooh
Well, this is a really tough one. There are some great answers. Okay...I have narrowed it down to Hobbits (Sara) and Winnie the Pooh (Susan). As much as I love Hobbits and it is almost painful not to pick them, I am going to have to pick Winnie the Pooh. I think it was he who first introduced me to this particular use of this word... Congrats, Susan!
Thanks Katherine, Winnie the Pooh has been a favourite of mine ever since I had kids.
