Words I learned or relearned while reading the book Alive:

- lugubrious
- oligarchs
- imbued
- anthropophagia

p.s. I kept humming that Pearl Jam song.

eh, don't be! I don't get out that much lately. Plus I have an 8 year old who uses words like "pulchritudinous", which I also now know.

Your 8-year-old sounds interesting!! Maybe I'm the one that doesn't get out much.

Pearl Jam didn't write a song about the incident, they just wrote a song called "Alive" on their "Ten" album from 1991.
