Happy [cheery, merry, joyful, jocular, gleeful] birthday, Peter

January 18, 2017

It’s the birthday of Peter Mark Roget (1779-1869), author of Roget’s Thesaurus*, which is all the excuse I need for indulging in a little bibliophile humor.


*Full title: Roget’s Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases Classified and Arranged so as to Facilitate the Expression of Ideas and Assist in Literary Composition. I kid you not.
