Journal Entry 1 by prachitulshan from Kolkata, West Bengal India on Saturday, October 08, 2011

Do you know the difference between acetic and ascetic? Burgers and burghers? Bucolic and alcoholic? Complaisant and compliant? A cassock, a Cossack, a hassock, a hillock, a hummock and a pillock? If not, this book provides the answers. With entries varying from pithy brevity to mini essays, this textbook should be useful for anyone who has ever been caught using the wrong word in the wrong place (or been caught out being too clever by half). Readers, writers and students of media studies will find answers to frequently asked questions - and a number of questions it has never occurred to them to ask.

The book here is waiting to be accessorized in its favourite and "true" colours, just the way Bally likes.

Team Thimble needs to go to the museum this turn, and Bally thought what better mode of transport than the good ol' ambassador taxi, signature yellow and only to be seen in Kolkata? Already dressed to match the cab's colours, and at the same time displaying his multi-tasking skills, Bally collects the yellow set on the way!

Released for Turn Eleven (Collect the Yellows) of the BC Monopoly Game hosted by Vekiki.
