  All I want for Christmas...is at least five responses that have nothing to do with sexual acts or human anatomy.

astrobleme (AS-tro-bleem) noun

A scar on the earth's surface caused by the impact of a meteorite.

hypercorrection (hi-puhr-kuhr-REK-shun) noun

A grammatical, usage or pronuciation mistake made by `correcting' something that's right to begin with. For example, use of the word whom in "Whom shall I say is calling?"

  I'm not certain what my favorite words are, but I do recall in high school, one of my teachers made a comment to me that syphillis was a cool word. She clarified that it was not a cool disease to have, but that the word itself was interesting. In my senior year I left her Syphillis...not one of my more shining moments as a human being. Yet even as I type this it still makes me laugh.

Not that it matters...

Should have read in my senior "will" not "year" That's what I get for attempting to type this late at night....ugh...

Not that it matters...

It would appear I have an appreciation for words with the s sound somewhere in there. Especially if its at the beginning.

Cool. I never imagined that there exists a word to describe this.

That word makes me smile. I don't know why for sure. Some words just make me smile on the inside when I hear them...
like balm, salve, hotdiggity, comquat, moose, messerschmit...there's a bunch more of them
I guess that makes them fit my favorite category

  Mondegreen - a word or phrase resulting from a misinterpretation of a word or phrase that has been heard.

I used to call the Sprint phone guy Detective Mondegreen.

  hyperbole, dortschauen, pharaoh, Sengeexperten, and J'adore are also very pleasing.



Oscillate is tops though. What a cool word that is. Oscillate.....oooossscilllattteee.

i'm picturing you saying that.


made up words can be fun too. I remember when my son was about 5 or so we drove by a deep snow bank along the road. He said, "That snow is deep in clevity."

I remember asking him what clevity meant and he didn't have an answer...but from day day on we ended up using clevity any time we needed a good adjective to describe something deep.

*That shit is deep in clevity

  It's more of a setence than individual words...

But it's the most satisfying setence you will ever say.

I don't know, if you've seen Ace Ventura Pet Detective, but there's a certain phrase in that movie, said by Jim Carey, that sticks in your head for YEARS.

I write letters back and forth with my 19yrold sister and in every letter it crops up, because if you say it aloud in the right way you WILL smile.

*ahem*

Like a glove.

Said...

LYKE A GEEELUVEH

Say it...

  Alas... something so perfectly melancholy about that word.
Lean, the adjective, not the verb.
Freedom.
Iris.
Lividity, don't ask me why, it's just a cool word.

  Revolution.

I like the images it evokes. I imagine an enormous wheel, imperfectly formed, so that for every complete turn, the flawed side comes down on the earth with a terrible jolt. It crushes everything in its path.

  AS addi said made up words are great too

My friend big Lee (formerly GTs Anubis) is big and tough and frequently injured.

We went through this biodome-esq*

*adj.
1. Of, relating to, or in the style of the movie Biodone.
2. General Dicking around.

phase of him getting injurated and screaming "Ah my pancreas!" or "Ah my spleen!"

One day he hit his back and screamed ah my Spline!

Spline decended into a myriad of ficticious body parts including

Spline
Splungako
Spoovoo
Splicers
and
Splumvah

I beleive there was a peace of paper authored by myself in an attempt to explain each parts function once upon a time but it's been sadly lost.
