  • petrichorˈpeˌtrīkôr/ This week on the Bluefish Editorial desk, it RAINED.* Some of you in other parts of the world may not fully appreciate how thrilling this is. As a rule, we in San Diego only ever get rain between November and March, and the last few years not even then. The state’s record-breaking drought was eased by last year’s wet winter in Northern California, but even though SoCal has sh...

Word of the Week: Pie

  • pie/pī/ Today on the Bluefish Editorial Desk, it’s time for Reader Queries! After my last post, one of my lovely and intelligent subscribers wrote to ask what “PIE” stands for—was it something to do with Indo-European languages or an especially enthusiastic way of talking about, you know, pie? Clearly some disambiguation was in order.​There’s a lot of PIE out there. Depending on the context, it c...

  • punch\ˈpənch\ ​Hello strangers! It’s been a hectic few months here at the Bluefish Editorial desk. I do at least have something to show for my long silence: since my last word, I have midwifed two academic books and a fistful of journal articles, plus an AP test prep book, a set of abstracts, a grant application, and a slow-blooming memoir. Less appealingly, I have also racked up a great heap of ...

  • Word of the Week: Prime

    prime/prīm/ This week on the Bluefish Editorial desk, I completed my first batch of invoices for the new year—and found myself struggling once again with the perennial problem of remembering to write the current year instead of the one just past. My invoicing software, thank goodness, is smart enough to get it right,* but I mislabeled a whole bunch of archive copies and had to spend a good bit of...

  • Word of the Week: Apocalypse

    apocalypse \ə-ˈpä-kə-ˌlips\ Well. It’s been a hell of a month here at the Bluefish Editorial desk. In the home stretch of this endless election, as the debates and the Wikileaks and the ever-descending spiral of hideosity unfurled, I found myself in a state of increasing agitation. I did what I could. I gave money. I pitched in on some local campaigns. And I hoped for the best. The first clutch o...

  • Word of the Week: Miss

    Miss\ˈmis\ For the last few years I have been engaged in the delightful project of Letting Myself Go. Out with constricting fashions, pantyhose, and high-heeled shoes! I wear clothes that are comfortable and pleasing to my eye. I eat what I like and what makes me feel good. I don’t worry about wrinkles. And somewhat to the chagrin of my stylist and my mother, I have stopped coloring my hair.All o...
