Geology Word of the Week: On Hold for a Few Weeks
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
So, I was hoping to post the Geology Word of the Week before flying back to South Africa in a few hours. However, I’ve been busy with work and also with a few last-minute wedding preparations (my wedding is in 12 days! Eek!). Now, the hour approaches 2am, and I need to finish packing… I hope the wedding favors and table placards survive the long trip. Worst case scenario, we’ll have some slightly-squashed wedding decor and a good story.
Anyway, this week we’re at the letter S in our geology alphabet, and I’ve selected the word schist! One of my favorite geology words! In fact, schist is such a fantastic word that I don’t want to write up a rushed post. So, I’m going to put the Geology Word of the Week on hold for a few weeks until after my wedding and the associated chaos of friends and family traveling to South Africa for the occasion. You can expect a return of the Geology Word of the Week in early November. In the meantime, I may sneak in a picture post or two.
By the way, I full expect many schist jokes and puns to be posted in the comments below.
Oh, schist! First thing that came into my mind. 😉
Take all the time you need. One o’ the biggest days of your life coming up soon – savor it! Don’t stress out about things like blogs. It’ll keep until you’re happily married.
Have the time of your life!
Yay for a gorgeous and stress-free wedding!
Take a deep breath, and don’t worry. Something will go wrong – it always does – but hopefully it will be as minor as a white wine glass spilling or the guests bursting out laughing at the wrong spot. And when that happens, you can relax – it’ll all be cool from there on.
This whole “getting married” thing is just too much for me – I refuse to do it ever again.
That’s some good schist right there …
Congrats in advance on your wedding!
We can all understand taking some time off to get married ….well ok maybe not all of us but don’t stress, it’s your marriage so you should enjoy it.
Best wishes for a joyful celebration of the joining of two lives in public commitment! Take a deep breath and remember that it is a celebration when things start stressing you out.
Now for the bad pun – From one of my geology classes at college, TOO many years ago – “Some geologists are Gneiss…but too many of them are full of Schist”
Thanks, everyone! Keep the schist puns and jokes coming 🙂
That’s a slick answer to a challenging question
