  • I use this word in my head a lot and am surprised it wasn't here already. I'm sure Abraxas_Zugzwang coined it one day, back in the Wordian, when the site went down for an hour and we are all surprisingly verklempt: "I need my wordiehol!"

    If I recall, that was the first day that a bunch of users started (frantically) posting punchy comments on everyone else's pages, instead of demurely and politely tending to their own lists. Uselessness was there, and reesetee, and Abraxas, and myself... and I'm not sure who else (seanahan?), but I fondly remember that day as being The Beginning of the Party.

    Wow. This turned into Wordiestalgia and that was not the intention... Besides, it probably wasn't the same day (but in my mind it was).

    Edit: Here's A_Z's Wordiehol list!

  • I love that Wordiehol list. It's exactly the opposite of the Wordie addiction list. :-)

    Thanks for the memories, c_b. And by the way, you should bracket The Beginning of the Party. ;-)
