Actually, ‘fall’ has its origins as an Anglo-Saxon word, and was popularized for use to denote the season around the 16th century from the poetic term ‘the fall of leaf.’ In the language that would develop after 1066, words that were coded as being common or lowly generally had Anglo-Saxon roots while the ‘educated’ words of the elite had French and Latin roots. This is why, even in modern English, we use ‘cow,’ which has an Anglo-Saxon origin, for the animal out in the field and ‘beef,’ which has a French origin, for the food to be consumed. The poor handle the animal while the rich eat the meat, and that is reflected in the language. The language of the conquerors was elevated while the language of the conquered was made base and common. If ‘autumn’ sounds smarter than ‘fall,’ that is only the linguistic snobbery of history talking.

And here’s a handy GIF about tonight’s the lunar eclipse. For the west coasters (who have a better chance of seeing the eclipse through the clouds) just subtract 3 hours.  It’s basically a moving version of this NASA graphic.
GIFs not your style? Check out my last minute astronomical announcement song!

From Foreign Garb To Fashion Fad, Pajamas Have Traveled Far

Pajamas have been challenging American sartorial sensibilities for a century in the softest, warmest, most cozy way possible — Pajama Boy was just the latest victim. Are they nightwear or daywear? Menswear or women’s? A threatening foreign invention, or all-American garb?
In the 19th century, British colonials encountered the “piejamah,” a common garment in India and Iran. It’s a transliteration of a word shared by Urdu, Hindi and Persian that means “leg garment.”
The loose set of trousers, tied at the waist, was comfortable in hot weather and worn as daywear by both men and women. (It’s still worn in South Asia today, with kurta and kurti tops.)

You bump into a man on the subway wearing a trenchcoat. You apologize and he responds “Its alright. We’re only human. All of us. All of us here are human. Yep. Very human. I’m probably the most human here! You betcha.” and then the trenchcoat falls and the figure collapses and roughly 1000 salamanders scatter around the train
