050415 Nushnik on Easter Day???

By April 5, 2015zBlog Archives

I’m becoming increasingly disappointed by the OED. I thought that today’s word might have some Easterly connection, even if tenuous, but instead the OED has chosen “nushnik” meaning: ‘An outhouse containing a toilet, usually without plumbing’, (OED). Hmmm – I’m not impressed, not only is it unEasterly, but it’s also rather difficult to find (unless the abandoned WC in the skip down the road counts). I have therefore broken the recent OED trend and gone with tradition. A proper Easterly picture from a proper cathedral, where we went to hear Puccini’s wonderful Messe di Gloria – all far more appropriate than outdoor Russian bogs.

Day #95 of the second 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
