Poked at some papers that I need to review, got together at Sherbrook for a little mutual-guitar-skillz-teaching-learning thing with meshach and etopiei. Went to D's later, good times. I notice that there is a hole in my vocabulary for discussing things that elicit certain proto-verbal responses. Like, for instance, something is unbelievably cute and precious, and you go "aww!". I feel like there could easily be a verb for what that thing has done do you, and for what you do about it in response. Just onomatopoeically turning "awww" into a verb such as "Alice awwed over Bob's new puppy" doesn't seem satisfying somehow.
