This blog is for everyone who uses words.

The ordinary-sized words are for everyone, but the big ones are especially for children.

Sunday Rest: still keeping very calm...

A couple of weeks ago The Word Den featured the word Broga.

Could anything be more deeply horrible than that?

Yep. 'Fraid so. 

Are you ready?

Voga. 

This isn't just weight loss, the website tells us, this is social gain

It's also, apparently, yoga with sass.

Also according to the website, Voga is a stretching and posing routine set to an iconic 80s beat, and the word voga is an amalgamation of yoga and vogueing.

Vogueing? A highly stylised dance form...[which]...gave its participants a sense of empowerment through striking dramatic and expressive poses resembling egyptian hieroglyphs.

I don't know about you, but my mind is boggling.

I also see someone somewhere is offering something called Yoogaia: but at the moment I'm afraid I haven't got the strength to research it.

Keep calm...
