Stupider vs. More Stupid

I had a debate with a couple friends yesterday concerning whether the proper term is "stupider" or "more stupid".  I consider myself a Word Nerd, so having someone question my knowledge is bruising to my nerdy, narcissistic ego.

     Because of my need to know things, I couldn't leave it alone.  I had to look it up, and I'm glad I did.  Mostly because I'm right.  (Click the link to see why.)

     I know, I've been missing lately.  I've been wasting a lot of time locked in exhausting arguments lately.  Haven't exactly been in the best mood, which does not create the best blog posts.  But enough of excuses.  I've been thinking lately, I have some ideas.  So hang tight, I haven't forgotten about you all.  I'm still trying to figure out how I want to approach this blog, so I'm going to mess around with things a bit and hopefully present you with something more interesting and engaging. 

     Really, hang in there.

     Yesterday was "Read Across America Day", also know as the birthday of the beloved Dr. Seuss.  I probably should have said something, as this is a reading blog.  I kinda dropped the ball (or book) on that one.  I'll try again next year.

     Did anyone actually make a point to read yesterday?  Again, I dropped the ball.  What are you reading?  I meant to pick up my newest conquest, St. Augustine's Confessions.  I do have a valid excuse:  I was taking care of an invalid.  He had an overnight hospital stay recently, and now the medication they put him on is making him feel awful.  So I have to put down the books and play nurse, which I'm actually pretty good at doing.

     I should also mention that I met a good friend's family for the first time recently, and I think I love them.  I want to move in, because they fed me AND gave me books.  People like that cannot be bad.
