  • For students of ombrology, this site answers the most important question.

  • It's not raining now.

    October 19, 2008

  • Oh. Oh dear. *hides face*

    October 13, 2007

  • Yep. See poor trivet's first comment, below.

    October 12, 2007

  • So... wait. Is this a real word?

    October 12, 2007

  • ...and when heavy mist threatens, I grab my trusty omburg. Unfortunately it only comes in gray and burnt omber...not very exciting Crayola colors. I tried magic markers but they just can't make much headway against the former, and none at all against the latter...

  • Yes, umbrellas! In retired Crayola colors.

  • You know, though, this makes sense. When it looks like rain, I always reach for my ombrella. Sometimes, if it looks *really* rainy, I reach for my hombrella.

    March 8, 2007

  • Maybe, but somebody got the H out of there. ;-)

  • And anyway, I thought ombrology was the study of hombres.

    March 6, 2007

  • Oh, my. I think all of these pseudologies should go on AbraxasZugzwang's wordization list. That goes for vexiology, too, however accidental.

  • Wrong again! Good heavens; where did you go to school? Clannadology is the study of large groups of Scottish people who collect dolls.

    March 6, 2007

  • No, no. That's clannadology. Eeeeeniacology is pronounced with a long e, that's why it's confusing.

    March 6, 2007

  • I don't think so. Eniacology is, of course, the study of ethereal-sounding Irish music.

    March 6, 2007

  • No, no, that's eniacology, reesetee. You're confused. ;)

    Trivet, I thought astacology was the study of the dog in "The Thin Man" movies. Isn't it?

    March 6, 2007

  • Nah. Crayology is the study of enormously large, room-sized supercomputers, isn't it?

    March 6, 2007

  • I concur. Might be confused with astacology, though.

    March 6, 2007

  • I think that's crayology, reesetee.

    March 6, 2007

  • Are you sure this isn't the study of retired Crayola colors?

    March 6, 2007

  • The study of rain.
