I'm always excited when I learn a new word. It's the height of geekiness, isn't it? I'm also fascinated when I realize I didn't know the correct meaning for a certain word.
Today's word I mistakenly thought meant new was noir. For those like me, didn't know it or have it right, it means "Of or relating to a genre of crime literature featuring tough, cynical characters and bleak settings."
Maybe I was thinking of the word neo. No. Not of the Matrix. It means "recent or new."
Now after that lesson, why do I believe it's time for little muppets to come dancing out of the shadows?
