The newest exercise “craze” (that’s a little strong, but so be it): open-water swimming. My wife will vouch for it. When we vacation up north, she loves to swim in Lake Huron (assuming the water is smooth, of course). She says it’s an entirely different feeling that swimming in a pool. The link above touches on my wife’s experience.
There’s always something interesting in the dictionary. A little while ago I learned that “buttinsky” (as in, “Don’t be a buttinsky”) is a real word. It dates from 1902 and means, “one given to butting in; a troublesome meddler.”Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
