Happy holidays

Happy end-of-2008 holidays!

Dear Suzushiro Haruka:

I hate you, Mrs. Malaprop.

With fist-shaking love,

P.S.: Muse-chan isn’t terribly amused either.

    1. Absolutely right. Firefly/Serenity were great.

      A character in Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s play The Rivals (1775), Mrs. Malaprop consistently uses language malapropos, that is, inappropriately. The word malapropos comes from the French phrase mal à propos, made up of mal, “badly,” à, “to,” and propos, “purpose, subject,” and means “inappropriate.” The Rivals was a popular play, and Mrs. Malaprop became enshrined in a common noun, first in the form malaprop and later in malapropism, which is first recorded in 1849. Perhaps that is what Mrs. Malaprop feared when she said, “If I reprehend any thing in this world, it is the use of my oracular tongue, and a nice derangement of epitaphs!” -Dictionary.com

      Haruka is going to kick my ass.
