(madison) the pole prevails
Tonight's riveting dispute to prompt the opening of the laptops: the proper pronunciation of banal. The proprietress of NinaNet said it rhymes with canal, she mentioned a fellow blogger friend who said it's just like "anal" only with a b on the front, and I've always pronounced it BUH-nahl. According to dictionary.com, all three are correct, but the tiebreaker of order goes to rhymes-with-canal.
