  • "Let me tell you: thinking about nothing but Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band or Dreamcatcher for an entire day does weird things to a man's mind grapes."

  • I understand completely, bilby! I see that you're in the UK as well. I'm studying at Oxford (ahem) for this term. It really is getting late...

    November 22, 2007

  • I'll put that in my list of portmanteau names for potato-based frozen foods companies. ; )

    November 22, 2007

  • That one, Tennessucky, and Washaho are my favorites. : D

    November 22, 2007

  • I think, unless you're referring to something else, that subjunctive is a verb mood rather than a case, yes?

    I have subjunctive listed in my list of verb moods.

    November 22, 2007

  • How about geez (Jesus), darn and dang (damn)?

    November 22, 2007

  • Thanks, whichbe!

    November 22, 2007

  • Is this right? That's way too confusing... : ?

    November 22, 2007

  • Yeah, reesetee, they're supposed to be contiguous, but they are imaginary places, so I guess it doesn't really matter.

    November 22, 2007

  • This has to be the best one. Nice one, reesetee!

    November 22, 2007

  • Yeah, SeaTac seemed kind of iffy to me since it's not really 'on the border' of anything.

    I'm beginning to have trouble telling the real places from the fake ones...

    And yes, c_b, it definitely counts.

    November 22, 2007

  • Thanks, reesetee! I think we should make up more names for places...New Texico?

    November 22, 2007

  • No kidding! Sounds like a type of apple or pear to me.

  • Ingenious.

    November 21, 2007

  • Thanks! It should be an interesting paper, as the book has fascinated me...so close to the end!

    Aha, so you did, skipvia! I only knew about priapus from museums that had little statuettes with anatomical exaggerations. I'm learning a lot from this book. It's really quite entertaining.

    November 21, 2007

  • ". . . she'd decided that there might be a pleasure to suck from me. A mantis-woman; starved in her luxury" (585).

    Guh, creepy!

    November 21, 2007

  • It's a compelling but achingly-long read. I'm to write an essay on it due tomorrow...something about postmodernism and labyrinths...eh, you know how it goes.

    November 21, 2007

  • ". . . having this same language, same past, so many same things, and yet not belonging to them any more. Being worse than rootless ... speciesless" (The Magus 574).

    November 20, 2007

  • Yay! Quite a benchmark, reesetee! Surprised you haven't crashed the server yet.

    November 20, 2007

  • It has a nice balance to it. Honestly, it reminds me of menomena. It's pretty close as well to being anemone backwords, now that I look at it...

    November 20, 2007

  • I get dizzy when I look at this word...

    November 19, 2007

  • I assume so. It was neglected, so I took it under my wing.

    November 19, 2007

  • test

    November 19, 2007

  • ". . . there was Conchis's cryptic, doubt-sowing advice that it would be easier if I pretended to believe" (143).

    November 19, 2007

  • I agree that it's overused -- too much of its time. Too zeitgeisty in itself.

    November 17, 2007

  • I'm taking cues from the website I posted below and wikipedia's list of eponymous adjectives.

    The article posted mentions a certain "Literary League's Language Label Committee," which apparently makes authoritative decisions on the forms used for the adjectives, but I can't seem to find any more info about it.

    I do like the alternative adjectivizations of names though.

    November 17, 2007

  • Looks like someone else has access to a thesaurus as well ; )

    November 17, 2007

  • I thought you were implying it was a useless list because it can be done to any personage. I think marlovian is my favorite of the ones I've entered.

    November 17, 2007

  • Build an ark and gather your words in pairs...the deluge will begin shortly.

    November 17, 2007

  • uselessness, do you perchance belong to some community called Wordie? Well put, friend.

    November 17, 2007

  • By the way, I didn't come up with the list -- I'm just the garnerer(?).

    November 17, 2007

  • Maybe we have different conceptions of beauty -- which isn't that odd of an idea, since we are different people.

    I see the two words you mentioned as spiny and callused, hard. It's the Cs, I think. They are fun to say, but I wouldn't call them beautiful myself.

    November 17, 2007

  • But...beautiful?

    November 17, 2007

  • I'm adding queasy to the list.

    November 17, 2007

  • What's so yucky?

    November 17, 2007

  • Whatever. Don't be jealous.

    November 17, 2007

  • I'm only on the three-letter A words, so don't speak too soon. The worst is yet to come.

    November 17, 2007

  • Is that a dig at my list? : ) Nevertheless, I was looking for standard forms found in credible sources. You know, like websites.

    Inspired by this nugget

    November 17, 2007

  • It is a really good website. I had it bookmarked for the longest time and didn't return to it until I revived my Wordie interest a couple days ago.

    I actually like all the liquid, lilting l sounds. Sycamore is nice too though.

    November 17, 2007

  • I actually know him...does that make it better or worse?

    November 17, 2007

  • Hey! That's kind of neat -- my day has been made. I'll thoroughly enjoy the blurb throughout the day, taking a sip of it every time I feel a little glum.

    November 16, 2007

  • Well, thank you. But I can't take credit for it entirely...The words are from a book I got at the bargain rack at Barnes & Noble a few years back. One of the best buys I've ever made.

    November 16, 2007

  • Thanks, I will!

    November 16, 2007

  • I'll fondle you.

    November 16, 2007

  • I am e-stepping that way...

    ...Now what's the prize?!

    November 16, 2007

  • Yeah, the leveling is strange...but I'm still pretty impressed at the difficulty of some of the words. Usually vocab tests and the like use fairly common words.

    (And I have no thoughts on the oviparous/viviparous disparity in level. :)

    November 16, 2007

  • You know, I really think it's similar to the headline of a newspaper seen briefly in Weird Al's "Like a Surgeon" video.

    Time passes.

    I re-watched the video, and the headline looks like "Terrified Housewife Eats Her Own Foot." I must've been thinking of that when I made my myspace quote/tag.

    December 23, 2006

  • I'm happy to be here!
    I like your website, by the way.

    December 15, 2006

  • nice word.

  • Oh, sorry--not the award! I'm a fellow disliker of the s-word, is all. :-)

    November 17, 2007

  • Yuck. ;-)

    November 16, 2007

  • Attention fellow wordies: Papageno listed the s-word because it actually belonged on a list. A big words list? You don't need no stinkin' big words list. You're wordie enough to stick that sucker in context. So kick back and enjoy nice, cool congratulatory blurb on your profile, Mr. Schadenfreude-lister. You've earned it.

    November 16, 2007

  • hi there yourself

    September 30, 2007

  • Your myspace quote/tag seems oddly familiar - where have I heard that headline before?
