  • Oh! *bats eyelashes* I'm so flattered!

    *runs off to nominate others*

    November 30, 2007

  • Ok, anyone who wishes can feel free to make a category, and then I will make a list pointing to each of the words which represent.

    Post categories to List of Categories for List of the Year 07 . I suggest funniest-loty07, etc., but others may wish a different standard.

    November 22, 2007

  • Thirded.

    November 21, 2007

  • Also: I very much like jennarenn's idea of categories--not only would it make nominating easier (in my opinion), but it would also spread the wealth--as in, the monstrous scads of money the winners will haul in. ;-)

    November 21, 2007

  • Now there's the life.

    November 21, 2007

  • That's why I won't mention *any,* reesetee. There are just too many! I have pages and pages of favorites, and I've stopped adding favorites, there are just so many. I wonder how I have time to do anything else in life but sit around reading Wordie all day.

    *aaaah* Wouldn't it be just grand?

    November 21, 2007

  • I agree on the Wordie Guidelines, jennarenn. I also agree with c_b (and could nominate a zillion of her lists). Actually, if this goes on much longer, I'll have to nominate three-quarters of the lists on Wordie--so many great ones! :-)

    November 21, 2007

  • Everything you just said is duly noted in my book, jennarenn. Even the thing about my list that I don't really like, because, well, you have a good point. :-P

    November 21, 2007

  • Aw, you guys are too sweet. I still think that the Word Guidelines for Wordie needs to be in the running, b/c it was the first list used to convey an idea, rather than a list of words.

    Another thought: Could this evolve into a series of superlatives? Funniest? Best Breach of the Fourth Wall? Most Creative? Best All Around?

    Still another thought: Nobody's nominated Characters for a Jewish Star Wars, but it's consistently on people's favorites lists.

    November 21, 2007

  • Road trip!

    November 21, 2007

  • One more: Arby's Whatever you rolled in, it sure smells delicious. :-)

    November 20, 2007

  • I'd second all of the below lists, plus Specific Excrement and minced oaths.

    November 17, 2007

  • I'm not nominating any lists (there are too many! see my comment on... some other page where I commented about this), and I do love jennarenn's Conversations list, but there's more than one of those: Conversations for the Ages. (I made it before I realized jennarenn already made one!)

    November 17, 2007

  • I nominate Creative onomatopoeia, Finnish locative cases and Action movie in 50 words.

    November 17, 2007

  • Thanks, uselessness! (I'm still adding to that list.) I nominate sionnach's fake words, meant to be amusing, uselessness' Festival of Randomness, palooka's Nautical Words, chained_bear's Journey of a 300-Year-Old House, and one of jennarenn's three classics: Conversations, Idle Chatter, or Chit Chat. I can't decide, but the longest (and arguably finest) discussions are probably listed on Conversations.

    I knew I'd never be able to decide! :-)

    November 17, 2007

  • Of course, someone has to nominate Conversations because of its dashing thoroughness, so it might as well be me. :-) I'll also nominate the old classic, It Has a Name?? Thanks, jennarenn, of course, for nominating my list but I hate that one and will have to cancel out your yea with my nay. ;-)

    November 17, 2007

  • Thanks, jennarenn. I'm flattered. :-) Actually, I've been tagging more than one list/word/whatever. Doesn't seem possible to me that anyone could choose just one of each!

    November 16, 2007

  • uselessness's Word Guidelines for Wordie started a good discussion on how we wanted to use the site.

    November 16, 2007

  • Yeah, I was just gonna ask about that. ;) I can't choose one, but these two made me laugh out loud:

    Name Suggestions for Ultra-Compact Cars and "Name Suggestions for Even Bigger SUVs and Trucks" as a set.

    November 16, 2007

  • Evidently we can't put tags on lists. So for the time being we'll just list them here.

    Action Movie in 50 Words

    November 15, 2007

  • This tag is used to apply to "Nominated for List of the Year in 2007".
