Alright, so I now have a way (thanks, WordPress for making it easy for me!) that you can share any of my posts you like or found helpful (hint, hint, Profiterole!) on Twitter at the click of a button! See below!
Yay now I am going to be famous. But don’t worry — I will still love you all. Even from my shiny new 12-storey mansion I will build from Legos and liquid gold. And I will still read your comments because you are awesome. So keep leaving them like little gold nuggets that I will collect, treasure, and eventually boil and use to decorate my mansion.

I had a heck of a time with this word, because I first heard it as “perfiderol”, which, of course, is not a word. I looked it up in my trusty sites: www.wordreference.com, www.dictionary.com, and http://www.merriam-webster.com. They didn’t have any worthwhile suggestions for me. Even Google didn’t initially suggest anything, except for perfideral, which was one site where someone clearly mistook it for “peripheral”. I tried perfideral, perfiderole, periderol, periderole, pirfiderol, pirfiderole….. didn’t think to substitute the schwa with a letter “u”. Anyway, I’m posting this here, in case someone else is looking up the same thing.
