Two Languagehat Links, One Temporary

Two links, both via the blog Languagehat:

1) Through February 5, the OED online is having a free trial; log in using "trynewoed" as both the name & the password. (Hint: it's three three-letter words written with no spaces.)

2) A blog called Quote Investigator which specializes in tracking down the provenance of obscure, multiply-attributed or otherwise troublesome quotes -- a practice that I've occasionally engaged in myself, but it's fun to see someone focus on it.
