According to the Watertown Blog on WickedLocal.com, "On Monday, CB Holding Corporation – owner of the Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse chain – announced the closing of a number of their restaurants in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Massachusetts. Watertown’s Arsenal Street location is on that list."
A repudiate definition is easy to look up. Yet, the repudiate definition may pale in comparison to a definition of refudiate, whenever that is created. Sarah Palin's new word, refudiate, has already become the new buzzword in the blogosphere. Everyone is using it to either mock Palin, or to place her with all the other politicians who made up new words. But, although it was easy to figure out what 'misunderestimate' and 'wee-wee'd up' meant, a refudiate definition is harder to come up with.
"When Palin's 'refudiate' hit Twitter a few days ago, it became the new hot word of the day. However, it was basically just a misspelling of repudiate, and not a word Palin was trying to make up. Yet, now that it has spread, Palin has taken credit for coining it, and for making up words like Shakespeare did.
"The definition of repudiate is to 'reject emphatically as unfounded, untrue or unjust,' according to The Free Dictionary. In the context of her Tweet, Palin wanted people to repudiate plans for a mosque near Ground Zero. However, she is now asking us to refudiate it.
The Sarah Palin refudiate word is buzz-worthy, but, if it is going to be a real new word, it has to have a meaning. It cannot use the repudiate definition, although it is the closest thing to Palin's original intent. If it is going to have the shelf life of other new political words, it needs to have a clearer meaning."

Watching CNN to see if Hawaii gets wiped out. I'm kinda hoping it's a non-event, since I want to visit KH6-land some day.

Reverend Fred Phelps’s Westboro Baptist Church plans to picket Twitter’s San Francisco offices tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. PST. The Kansas-based church is picketing because it believes that “the people who run Twitter … don’t use their position & voice to warn a generation of rebels of the consequences of their rebellion.”

Twas the night of Thanksgiving and out of the house
Tiger Woods came a flyin', chased by his spouse.
She wielded a nine iron and wasn't too merry,
Cause a bimbo’s phone number was in his Blackberry.
He’d been cheatin' on Elin, and the story progressed.
Woman after woman stepped up and confessed.
He’d been cheatin’ with Holly, and Jaimee, and Cori,
With Joselyn, and Kalika. The world had the story.
From the top of the Tour to the basement of blues,
Tiger’s sad sordid tale was all over the news.
With hostesses, 'n waitresses, he had lots of sex,
When not in their pants, he was sendin' them texts.
Despite all his cryin’ and beggin' and pleadin',
Tiger’s wife went investin' -- a new home in Sweden.
And I heard her exclaim from her white Escalade,
"If you’re gettin' laid then I’m gettin' paid."
She’s not pouting, in fact, she is of jolly good cheer,
Her pre-nup made Christmas come early this year.
-Thanks, Lucius Gilford
