I'm definitely with AZ on we're pregnant. Seanahan, just because you infer that Fitzgerald thought most women are dishonest doesn't mean he implied it. And I can think of many, many ways for a married woman to be dishonest besides unfaithfulness. Do you merely jest?
Ah, uselessness, I should certainly have looked for a list like this. I don't think I could ever match The No-No List so I'll just stop after pianist and hopefully people will visit yours. But you should certainly consider peanuts, since it got me in a fair bit of trouble with an environmental group when suggestings names for our financially adopted elephant.
Good heavens, I think I need a poem called Financially Adopted Elephant now.
but because it's "in the middle of a bunch of stuff" I'm going with amid For some reason, among has connotations of similarity across the group in my head, and being not stuff, I'd prefer to be amid it.
I'm afraid, jennarenn, I have to side with seanahan on this one. preggers sounds too much like prego to me, which I've also heard used as a euphemism for pregnant. And I can't think of much worse than being pregnant and being called low grade spaghetti sauce.
I am in love with this list. From the title (Bruce Campbellhuzzah!) to the words, er phrases I guess, to the comments. Though I admit to reading HP because I 1)wanted to see what all the fuss was about and 2)wanted to make sure I didn't lose students by having no idea about them (seriously, HP's been used in three of my 24 college freshmen students' papers so far). I also admit to reading LotR at least once a year. I started them in 7th grade then gave up, but picked them up again when the hype about the movies began.
prose poetry isn't the same as prosey poetry. One means the poet has chosen to do away with lineation; the other means the poet's not practicing the economy with words common to poetry.
That's only my opinion, though.
