monday january 1

today i helped my computer-illiterate grandmother set up her new printer/scanner. during the duration of this time, she used the word 'queer' three different times (for instance, on the way that the paper had to be loaded into the printer: "isn't that a bit queer?"). in each case, it took me a half-second to realize that she wasn't using the word in the culturally relevant way.
