    Another word I hate, almost forgot about it: PASSIONATE. Ewz.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I never liked the word "chic". (pronounced sheek). It just seems wrong.

    "Quaint" sounds really dumb, not sure why. I can't seem to properly pronounce "rollerblade".

    I love the sound of most French words, which is why I minored in the language in college. I particularly la boulangerie, la patisserie, noir, rouge, fille, voila, ici, des chaussures, des oeufs, bienvenue, travailleur, brioche, and the simple difference in pronunciation in our cognates/false cognates...like medcine.

    la piscine always cracks me up because it means "swimming pool" but if pronounced a certain way it can sound kind of like "piss in" which is what many people do in the swimming pool.

    Ephemeral is a nice English word. As is evocative, meander, imbue, plethora, surreptitious, bungalow, lush, atmosphere, hover, liturgical, sensational, contextual, profound, silvery, veiled, marred, scent...in fact, any English word that carries a sensory connatation I tend to love, a lot of my creative writing has long descriptions of the sensory environment.
