I'm pretty sure it's "mur-EEEE-no," but the thread is here (it's a fun read, but then I'm a dorky English major):

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34179.0

(As for me, I want to know, how do you say: couture, couturier, and haute couture?)

Whoa! That thread is addictive!!

And the pronunciation is Koh-ture, Koh-ture-ii-ay (but roll it together in a kind of french way) and Ho Koh-ture

Since "couture"'s feminine, "haute" has an e on the end so you pronounce the T, making it "hote coh-ture".

So both words have the long "o" sound?  (This is so bewildering.  It's good that I don't have much reason to say those aloud in daily conversation.)

you know you are a craftster when...
you are at work and have an awful case of staticy skirt and you know that if you could only sneek away for like 5 minutes and use the computer someone on here would be able to tell you a home remedy for staticy clothing... and its all you can think about until the end of the shift...

man what i would have given for an answer...

Re: Static-y skirt

Hair spray.  Spray it up under your skirt.  Rubbing your pantyhose with water (just dampen your hand) usually helps, too.  But hair spray works really well.

Rubbing a dryer fabric softener sheet on your skirt will work too. If static happens a lot at work you could just keep some at work....just in case.

Hand/body lotion, ideally- just use some on your legs or whatever skin is near the static-y garment. I've actually run into a drugstore for a sample of lotion just to cure static cling!

If your hair is really flyaway, get your hands good and moisturized (or use olive oil, yum!) and run your hands lightly over your hair. Easy to do subtly at your desk, unlike the hairspray on the brush trick (which always made my hair MORE flyaway)!
