These are not my own creations. These are from books I've read or things I've heard. I try to credit the author of the book I got it from, as long as wordie isn't going all 505 or broken on me.

zoom commented on the word my boring ass-life by kevin smith
Honest, funny, revealing.
Excellent examination of the lunatic fringe section which has insisted on a Hollow Earth since at least Halley's time. I also got this book because I'm convinced LOST is using a Hollow Earth as its "secret".
zoom commented on the word cartographical necropolis of brave futility
From Hollow Earth by David Standish. Or, as my mother would say - a quaint description of my past relationships.

No Mazda for me!! Chevy Silverado. Husband nicked me Zoom because I can't sit still and I'm often buzzing around for no reason.
zoom commented on the word global parfait
He was referencing the fun ideas of how the Earth cooled and created land/water. At least that's what I think he was discussing at the time. I find these little phrases I love and write them down. I apologize for not getting back in here very often. I don't have a ton of net access at the office.
