Mashable Buttons

Over the last year or so I've found a new meaning for an old word enter into existence. Mash is now used to mean "to push" or "to select" as in .... mash a button on a phone.

For instance, at work we have a computerized dialer that makes hundreds of calls and it tells people to answer to select various options.

By the time I get people on the phone, many now tell me that "your computer system told me to mash the #2 if I wasn't the person."

Every time I hear someone use this new meaning I think ... no, our computer program did not tell you to mash the button. Mashing is for potatoes.

I just don't think of buttons as being mashable.

But some people sure do. I suppose it is the Internet having introduced new meanings?

Here's a tee I thought was cute from

Palin's Travels - Free eBooks

One of the first things I did with Netflix was queue up all of Micheal Palin's travel shows like ... Around the World in 80 Days. I've watched everything Netflix has available, and I loved them. I enjoyed Palin's wacky sense of humor, and his visits with the fun people that he has met. I enjoyed seeing the geography and scenery from around the world. I don't have enough money and time to make these trips anytime soon, seeing some of the world was a wonderful distraction.

I have to admit, that I never bothered searching on-line for other resources and information with regards to Michael Palin. Today over at the blog Aurelia...Chrysalis Emerging I discovered that Palin's Travels is a really extensive Site. You can read the entire book from each television series created in free eBooks. The Site also has tons of photographs to accompany Michael Palin's travel journals such as his first try at Hookah (Around the World in 80 Days - Jeddah, Saudi Arabia).
