The Longest Now


weddings and nostalgia

I was at the wedding of my dear friend Erik Cohen-Levy two weeks ago, in Texas – quite a lovely and relaxing celebration.  And was bitten by something unpleasant which over time made me quite ill.  It took a while and some divergent opinions to get a blood test… I should know more Monday about what it is.  But it’s nice in a way to know I don’t have the flu.

So I’ve been exercising, hydrating like I had a concert every night, and feeling inexplicably nostalgic.  And as I’ve been too tired to move around much, I had time to get to a piece of sleuthing I’ve been meaning to do for a while : to track down who popularized the term ‘disambiguation‘, which Wikipedia has now made a household word !  The nostalgia wiki was helpful, and I’ve turned up some interesting leads, which I will share in another post.  But if you have information on the topic, please share.
