Julie at T&S put the link to the Niblets in the T&S sidebar and shouts "I AM ornery", take a look:
The always honest AnneGB nominated Ms. Smith as the "best ornery blogger" or something like that. Maybe its just me, but I have always considered "ornery" to be rather...um...derogatory. Lets check and see:

Yup, that was what I thought it meant. Well, either Julie is finally admitting to us all what we already know, or she doesn't know what the word means. If it the former, then she will leave the mouse-over description there. If it is the latter, then she will remove the mouse-over once she has read this.
You know, sometimes I just don't even have to try. These things just write themselves.
