My UK Connection to Paris Hilton

Nope, if you thought I was closer to meeting her or could give you her phone number, that's not happening – probably ever. But today, Paris Hilton and I have a distant UK connection: Hilton made the Oxford Dictionary of Quotes and I have a publication locked-up at the Bodleian Library at the University of Oxford (the only real connection here is the word Oxford, but so be it!).

Paris' contribution to the world of quotes is: “Dress cute wherever you go, life is too short to blend in”. Sage words my fashionista teenage daughter can certainly take to heart!

This world of words has also brought another technological reality fact to light, “Anything quoted today, verbally or “written” in electronic-form, can be and probably will be encountered by people all over the globe,” Elizabeth Knowles, editor of Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, said adding that data from on line sources makes impact on the changes in the dictionary. “

Am I making history here?

Don't think so, but I'll keep trying!
