And now you know!

The opposite of a namesake is an eponym. So the character played by Diana Rigg is my eponym.

(Somebody referred to her as my "namesake" in a comment thread a while back. That's wrong, because I wasn't even alive when that show came on, much less blogging. But I didn't know what the right word was. So when I ran across a reference to it today, I decided to share my new knowledge with all of you.)

yes, thanks so much!

(I also had 75 unread messages because apparently mu.nu sends you an email by default every time someone comments on your post. Wish I'd noticed that...I'd have turned it off.)

Dude, that's awesome. I'm going to have to work more Anka-isms into my daily speech (cleaned up a little bit, of course). Some of my classmates could use a similar lecture...

Hi, I was just wandering the blogosphere and here I am at your blog. I enjoy the style of how this all works.

This is one to watch.

Cheers,
