    Default Vocabulary

    I've started training for a vocabulary bee. List your favorite words here!

    I'm a fan of the words "lugubrious," "austere," and "benthic" today.

    I'm fond of the word "indubitably" and the phrase "but of course."

    And of course, I enjoy the company of certain four-letter words, which I will not mention, so use your imagination.

    I've been finding great fun in using "euchred" and "stymied".

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    I enjoy "naught", and... I can't remember any more right now.

    I'm a fan of "fiasco," "relinquish," "wintery," "ginormous," "muffin"...and just for a little Spanish "subte" (pronounced soob-tay) is my favorite en espanol.

    Ah, one of the tags given to me as a kid was "little lady, big words".

    But as I grew up, I empirically established the veracity of the sage advice:

    To ensure fellow humans are cognisant of your erudite nature it behooves you to eschew obfuscation.

    the scary bit was I understood the above sentence at the age of 11.

    Good luck with the vocab.

    I suppose scary to some, that kind of vocabulary was encouraged in my family.

    I like the words antidisestablishmentarianism, mofusul, and communality.

    Zymurgy- it was the last word in the dictionary for most of my life (I think it has been replaces since)
    Facetious - vowels in order in which they appear in the alphabet
    Serendipitous - it just sounds good.
    Regardless - because I must wipe out the use of 'ir'regardless.

    This signature left intentionally blank.

    Really.
