Why, yes, I am--well, not exactly 'from' the North Shore, because I have lived in so many places that I am not from anywhere really, but I lived--yes, in Lynn!--for five years, and New England and the Boston area in particular is more home than any other place has been so far. I see you have a New England wordlist: wicked awesome! :D The names of places and things in those parts are terribly fascinating.

You...Wordie'd Aldus Manutius the Elder. I don't know what to say. I love you! ♥

French, for the rustling of silk.

banui commented on the word worcester
Once upon a time, I lived in the Boston area (and I plan to live there again as soon as I'm able). I quickly learned that the above city is pronounced 'Wooster', and that may have been the first inkling I was going to be madly in love with New England.

Remusly & siriusly! Might I be kindly permitted to fangirl you now?

HAHAHAHA. It's you. And I can get my stalker badge now. (I swear to you, as soon as I saw 'words gone wilde' in the new wordlists box, I was absolutely certain you were here. Who else would it have been?)
Now I will demonstrate my large vocabulary and ceremoniously defenestrate you.
banui commented on the word moonlight
'Moon' itself is already such a beautiful & exquisite word in itself; add another delectable combination of letters--'light', which glides across the tongue and throat like the very substance it names--and it is pure ecstacy. There are few words that suggest more enchantment than 'moonlight', although it can be tremendously overused.

...Yes, that was incredibly intelligent. I do adore that word. It is more descriptive and biting than anything we've got in English (that is also acceptable in polite company, anyway).

Did you fall in love with wend during the same paragraph of Emily Climbs that I did? :D

Oh, it is I indeed! *awards you stalker badge with pomp* (I find that terribly amusing, really. But who else could it be indeed? Oh but aren't obsessions marvellous?)
Really, how very cruel of you! I daresay you needn't defenestrate me to prove your vocabularic eminence (as I may well have proven by my use of a non-existent word, haha!).

Yeah, so, I have no idea what I'm really doing here, but I signed up anyway. Just for you. And because I think this is cool.
(Wow, that was a terrible first comment for a word site. Must brush up vocabulary.)
