I am having speaker envy because my office roommate has better-quality audio speakers than I do. I usually never notice these sort of things, so the sound quality must be pretty disparate. Or maybe I've been infected by the group of guy friends I often hang out with -- Mr TDH and his posse.

When I was a child, adults would tell me not to make things up, warning me of what would happen if I did. As far as I can tell so far it seems to involve lots of foreign travel and not having to get up too early in the morning.

Am I really the only one who wonders why instead of uneatable we have inedible, and instead of unexplainable we have inexplicable? I really like the word "inexplicable", by the way.
