friends don't let friends write ignorant

Hardly a day goes by that I don't consult the Hans Wehr Arabic-English dictionary I have on loan from Nate until I muster the courage to go myself to Maktabat Jareer and/or the perky green pocket English-Spanish dictionary Aura-lee gave me in my hour of need.

I commend dictionaries to the attention of anyone looking for a good gift to bestow on a friend.

Just I guess it only works if your friends are nerds.

Haha... I got an unabridged dictionary for graduation from the lawyer my mom worked with a couple years ago. It was one of those gifts that got a response like "um... thanks?". Unessential at the time, to this day I don't know where I would've been without it. And only gets you so far... : )

I don't think I have any friends who aren't nerds on at least some level.
