Thanks, veruca! I should not have forgotten Chipotle, especially considering how many restaurants in my area throw that word onto half the dishes on their menu. It's become a stylish word!

kaichi commented on the word huggle-muggle
I don't believe this is a real word, though I've heard several people using it to mean, variously: a kind of hug; a to-do or fuss or hullaballoo; a mish-mash or odd mixture of something. Real or not, it makes me giggle.

This reminds me of the running joke in Rumpole of the Bailey, where he's always spelling out his surname and saying, "But it's pronounced Margerie Banks." (^-^)

January 4, 2007
Thanks, pamelad and veruca! I'd forgotten how many people around here say "pitcher" instead of "picture." ;P
kaichi commented on the word schlepp
Dictionary.com says it's acceptable with either one or two p's. I like it with two. It feels more laborious, that way. ;P
kaichi commented on the word pedantic
Wordie apparently doesn't hold on to capitalizations.
kaichi commented on the word dipthong
Curse that extra "h"!! Well, in true poet's fashion, I must declare this a new word. I'll say it's a noun, perhaps meaning the peek-a-boo move of an exotic dancer who wears only a thong. As in, "She fixed him with her sultry eyes, and did a little dipthong for his twenty." Building on that, I could change the initial "d" to a "t," and have it refer to the thong, itself. "He gingerly tucked his sweaty twenty into her tipthong."
Yes, I'm having way too much fun with this. ;P

kaichi commented on the list place-names-that-are-fun-to-say
There's a town in Texas called Waxahachie ("Wox uh HATCH ee" to us Texans). The NA names are always fun to say! Two other faves of mine are Cucamonga and Lompoc, both in California, and both (along with Lake Titicaca, which you list, here) appeared in various W. C. Fields scripts. Fields was apparently a logophile, like us! (^-^)
kaichi commented on the word moistly
That one's even worse than "zestful." ;P
kaichi commented on the word whiz wheel
Some of us cantankerous and curmudgeonly lovers of puddlejumpers like to do things the oldfangled way, with those nifty E6B's, a handful of good old dead reckoning and a whole lot of by-the-seat-of-yer-pants pilotage. I've only got a private ticket and haven't flown in a while, but I always LOVED doing all those calculations on the "computer," helped along with a freshly-sharpened number 2 pencil. (^-^)

December 16, 2006
Thanks, yoshiyahu! I had forgotten about "drowning" coming out as "drownding." People here do that, too. And I don't know many people who use "clitoris," but if they did, they'd probably stumble on it, too. ;P
"Ambulance" gets changed into "AMBA lance" around here. Just as "library" often becomes "LIE berry." *shudders* I also just remembered "tubular," which sometimes sounds like "toobler."
"Vietnamese" often becomes "Vietmanese," in my area (Texas). "Spaghetti" sometimes turns into "Pasketti," and "macrame" is, on occasion, pronounced "muh KRAYME" by those who don't know how to use the pronunciation guides in their dictionaries.
Thanks to sarra for "itinerary," as well, which stuck another one into my head: "potpourri," which I have heard someone say as "POT purry." ;P

Bravo, amigo. I must say however, until 9/11 flying was a dream job to have...never was there a time I didn't love it except for those few times when the chips were down and unpleasant decisions had to be made. Alas, I can't really recommend the career field anymore.
Re: "but I always LOVED doing all those calculations on the "computer," helped along with a freshly-sharpened number 2 pencil. (^-^)"
Good for you! I suppose it could be likened to doing sudoku and X-word puzzles, which I love, but when flying's been a career, you tend to think differently about manual flight planning. I just love that a whiz wheel exists and does what it does (along with the slipstick).
