Words that are awesome

Postby zeroguy » Sun Aug 09, 2009 11:06 pm

That other thread made me think about words I really like, too. So here are some.

defenestrate
smock
pants (verb AND noun, thank you very much)
cycling (and bicycling, etc)
troubadour

Defenestrate is an awesome word.
I'm also a fan of concupiscence, deign, and perplexed.
I used to hate gravity because it would not let me fly. Now I realize it is gravity that lets me stand.

Mine are words that I love to say...loudly, which always leads my husband to say "oh no", because he knows the whole list is coming.

fünf
frigate
focaccia
tabernacling

And a name I made up from a name in the bible and a last name I saw somewhere. I just randomly yell the name...it's fun: Barzillai Fjölnir.

Stoichiometry.

well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost

I'm sick of waiting

hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

Thanks, everybody! We're very excited. Our families are also very excited -- calling and telling everyone has been great.

My favorite response was from my intended's mother, after I asked if she would be willing to be my mother-in-law. She had this sharp intake of breath and then, "Yes! Yes! Oh, I have been praying and praying and praying for this!"

Anyhow, I'll start using Bob again for more details as they happen :)

box

As in "what's in the box?" or "gimme the box!" or "open the box!" but not as in "dick in a box".

Relatedly, if you also like the word box, you may like a few scenes in City of Ember. And that may be all you like in it.
