  • n. Complaints about small, probably inconsequential, things out of all proportion.

    I haven't posted here in a long time, but when my friend Kristen said this word today I knew I had to add it.

    June 10, 2013

  • Hahaha. It does sound a bit like that. Buff Orpingtons do have gold plumage, but they are one of the gentler, friendlier breeds out there. A rooster, however, is always a cock, if you know what I mean.

  • I love all of those things, ruzuzu. Ophelia, in particular, is a dandelion eater. She eats the seeds right off the stem as if it were a snowcone when they are available. I was actually thinking about adding the word personality to the list, but decided that I'll add individual characteristics instead.

  • Here's a nice version in French, palooka.

    June 2, 2008

  • *Laughing* Palooka, while you might prefer a two or a three, I believe that a four is what we are supposed to aspire to. A sign of your good health, my friend.

  • Thanks, bilby. I got totally addicted to Wordie when I started, and ended up having to go cold turkey for awhile. Not to mention, my non-computer-based life got in the way. Now I'm trying to get back now and again to catch up some, post some, and just enjoy. Hopefully I'll be around a bit more over the summer.

    May 25, 2008

  • It's sort of amazing how many of these there are!

    January 28, 2008

  • Thanks Reesetee. Now I just have to learn moderation. I find that I want to keep up with everything and everyone here, which is more than a full time job, and I'm no where near retirement. :)

    January 28, 2008

  • I seem to have gotten a bit carried away. Once I started I couldn't stop. Guess I've been away from Wordie for too long.

    January 26, 2008

  • Brilliant.

    November 12, 2007

  • This I love (with sionnach's definition).

    November 12, 2007

  • When it's just too good for "yum" alone. Additional emphasis can be added by tacking on yet another "a-lum" or two.

    November 12, 2007

  • A sweet list. I never thought about naming bunnies after trees.

    Psst, maple snuck in there twice. :P

    November 12, 2007

  • Teehee, how could I possibly resist?

    November 9, 2007

  • C-b, this list is awful! I mean wonderful! I mean awful!

    Oh, how about "ornt juice"? I used to think it was kind of cute. That wore off.

    November 8, 2007

  • This may seem sort of silly, but sometimes I'd really love to be able to rearrange the order of the words on one of my lists. With some lists word order can make a pleasure of reading the list as a whole. Thus far the only way I've accomplished shuffling words is to move them all to a generic list and then move them back in the desired order.

    November 8, 2007

  • I'll have to take in those lists a little bit at a time, and I'll probably have to wait a day or two to begin after reading these comments! Ouch. :[

    November 8, 2007

  • This is a particularly yummy list of words. I'm experiencing symptoms.

    November 8, 2007

  • I love the visual this list creates.

    November 8, 2007

  • I know it's been said, but, wow, this is a great list!

    November 8, 2007

  • I'll say.

    November 7, 2007

  • I love the idea of time being measured in ounces.

    November 7, 2007

  • Ugh! Is there a list for these already? Sure seems like there should be!

    November 6, 2007

  • I really like the look up options. Thanks for keeping them!

    November 5, 2007

  • Well, no. Actually, it's rather small at 500cc's, but I wouldn't exactly call it a mini bike. ;P It's just that vehicle makers generally try to find names that sound impressive/fast/tough/etc., so a town in Utah just seemed like an odd thing to name a bike after.

    November 4, 2007

  • Wow. You have posted nearly 1000 words within a week! I wonder if that's a record.

    November 4, 2007

  • Yeah, Bohemian Rhapsody is impressive. It's worth listening all the way through.

    November 4, 2007

  • I find "fusstrated" (in place of frustrated) to be much more annoying.

    November 3, 2007

  • I absolutely love your username.

    November 3, 2007

  • Okay, I suppose it's probably meant to be read as "great" or "maximum" or some such thing. A bit more believable, anyhow.

    November 3, 2007

  • Mules!

    Don't like the "orthopedic shoes" suggestion, eh?

    November 3, 2007

  • *Laughing as she sets another place for reesetee.*

    November 3, 2007

  • Don't feel bad, uselessness, it's supposedly very rare for anyone to get over 48, much less stay there. 47 seems quite respectable.

    November 3, 2007

  • What a relief! ;)

    November 3, 2007

  • Well, come on over, there's plenty of food!

    November 3, 2007

  • Haha, now that the WordNet definition is hovering next to the word my comment looks redundant.

    November 3, 2007

  • Aw, thanks, reesetee. :)

    November 3, 2007

  • A stand-in for sh**

    November 3, 2007

  • I've never heard "George Warshington" before. Shoosh, that's funny.

    November 3, 2007

  • They're still funny names for motorcycles.

    November 3, 2007

  • Well, I'll have to remember not to get on your bad side, reesetee! ;P

    November 3, 2007

  • But parent is a verb. *looking bewildered*

    November 2, 2007

  • This is a fun list. Here's one for you: Oh, pickledy poo!

    November 2, 2007

  • Great list, John. How about booties? Orthopedic? Would horseshoes be too much of a stretch? :D

    November 2, 2007

  • It makes me sound schnockered. :P

    November 2, 2007

  • Welcome, virago!

    November 2, 2007

  • I wonder how long it takes that fellow to learn a new piece. *still laughing*

    November 2, 2007

  • I'm in south central Wisconsin. Ramps grow wild in some of the woodland areas here and just to the northwest of us.

    November 2, 2007

  • I wonder how a motorcycle ended up with this moniker.

    November 2, 2007

  • WordNet doesn't seem to be pulling this one up, but Dictionary.com says, "a rivet or screw head having the form of a truncated cone."

    November 2, 2007

  • I suppose it could be an incredibly interesting town, though.

    November 2, 2007

  • According to Dictionary.com my bike is named after a town in Utah. A bit of a let down, really.

    November 2, 2007

  • That list of yours gets yummier by the word, skipvia.

    I just noticed that the link (below) to your list isn't working; I think you need to add the "A" in "A Southern Season" to it.

    November 2, 2007

  • Of course! The universal law of conservation of consonants. Clearly I need to page through my grade school texts as a refresher; I'd completely forgotten it. ;)

    November 2, 2007

  • It's a regional thing. Warsh is more commonly heard than wash in north central Illinois. At least in my own personal experience.

    My grandma always said warsh, so I'm rather fond of it, myself.

    November 2, 2007

  • How about snap, snip, wham, boom, and plop? :)

    November 2, 2007

  • Funny! And accurate.

    I must admit that I like bubble tea. Totally avoided for some time because it sounds like it belongs in anime, but it's pretty darn yummy-weird.

    November 2, 2007

  • Hope you all have a good time.

    November 2, 2007

  • The WordNet addition is nice on some words, but sucky on others, where it gives an inadequate definition. :(

    November 2, 2007

  • Oh, fine, just leave me here in the dark. I'll entertain myself. No problem.

    No, really. I'm fine.

    November 2, 2007

  • Interesting. It is also a letterpress term for a small, wedge-shaped piece of metal with teeth on one side. Used in sets of two, with their teeth facing eachother, quoins form an expandable rectangle that sits between blocks of wood (called furniture) on the press bed, and are tightened with a quoin key to secure type in place for printing.

    November 2, 2007

  • Really, uselessness? Everyone can see it but me? Oh dear.

    November 2, 2007

  • But I can't see towers open fire!!

    November 1, 2007

  • Books smell good when they're old, too. :)

    November 1, 2007

  • Haha, kewpid, that was my first thought, too.

    October 31, 2007

  • Great word! Shouldn't we be hearing it a lot more often than we do, though?

  • Well c_b, I could only find three that are recognized: Schip-A-Pom (Pomeranian x Schipperke), Skip-Shzu (Schipperke x Shih Tzu), Schipper-Poo (Poodle x Schipperke)

    October 29, 2007

  • I agree with you, sionnach. Believe it or not, this is less than half of the list. There are others I am tempted to add, but think I ought not to.

  • i'd advert to the verdict of the presbyters on that point--i haven't really been here long enough to know. =)

    November 4, 2007

  • kind of you to mention it. =)

    November 3, 2007

  • But why ever not, rocks? ;-) *wondering how to polish a text trophy*

    October 28, 2007

  • Okay, so it wasn't a very impressive win (I saw the trophy before I saw the scores). But I still have a Wordie trophy. I'm not knockin' that.

    October 27, 2007

  • Wow! I can't believe it! Wahoo! I won a Wordie game!

    October 27, 2007

  • You have emerged victorious from Identify the Wordie. You are an astute observer of people on the internet! I mean that in a good way! Make sure to come back for the next game so you can retain your title, champion.

    This comment is your trophy. Display it with love for all the world to see.

    October 26, 2007

  • Yum!!

    October 15, 2007

  • Right, here's your candy. Enjoy it! :D

    October 15, 2007

  • It's actually a play for two actors that has half a dozen characters. The actors will just suddenly change their posturing, and you know that they're a different character. It was some of the best acting I've seen in real life, but not one of the better plays. It's a bit of a downer.

    October 11, 2007

  • Thanks! No, I haven't seen the play, but I will certainly check it out now that you've brought it to my attention.

    October 11, 2007

  • Cool username! Did you ever see the play Stones in His Pockets?
