    January 15, 2007

  • Ooh, thanks Valse! I had forgotten that one. (^-^)

    January 6, 2007

  • haha Thanks! I added two of those, just now.

    January 5, 2007

  • haha I'm one of those. ;P Must add this one.

    January 4, 2007

  • Thanks, pamelad and veruca! I'd forgotten how many people around here say "pitcher" instead of "picture." ;P

    January 4, 2007

  • Dictionary.com says it's acceptable with either one or two p's. I like it with two. It feels more laborious, that way. ;P

    January 4, 2007

  • Wordie apparently doesn't hold on to capitalizations.

    January 4, 2007

  • Curse that extra "h"!! Well, in true poet's fashion, I must declare this a new word. I'll say it's a noun, perhaps meaning the peek-a-boo move of an exotic dancer who wears only a thong. As in, "She fixed him with her sultry eyes, and did a little dipthong for his twenty." Building on that, I could change the initial "d" to a "t," and have it refer to the thong, itself. "He gingerly tucked his sweaty twenty into her tipthong."

    Yes, I'm having way too much fun with this. ;P

    January 3, 2007

  • Tommyknockers and dust bunnies! (^o^)

    January 2, 2007

  • There's a town in Texas called Waxahachie ("Wox uh HATCH ee" to us Texans). The NA names are always fun to say! Two other faves of mine are Cucamonga and Lompoc, both in California, and both (along with Lake Titicaca, which you list, here) appeared in various W. C. Fields scripts. Fields was apparently a logophile, like us! (^-^)

    January 2, 2007

  • That one's even worse than "zestful." ;P

    January 2, 2007

  • Some of us cantankerous and curmudgeonly lovers of puddlejumpers like to do things the oldfangled way, with those nifty E6B's, a handful of good old dead reckoning and a whole lot of by-the-seat-of-yer-pants pilotage. I've only got a private ticket and haven't flown in a while, but I always LOVED doing all those calculations on the "computer," helped along with a freshly-sharpened number 2 pencil. (^-^)

    January 2, 2007

  • What a fun list! hehehe I use "mooncalf" and a few others in my everyday speech, already. Must add some more of these to my arsenal!

    December 30, 2006

  • I love palindromes! <3 (^-^)

    December 30, 2006

  • Cool idea for a list! (^o^)

    December 30, 2006

  • Discombobulated is one of my all-time favorite words! Probably because I can so often be described with it. (^o^)

    December 30, 2006

  • So true!! But I still enjoy calling myself silly. "Silly" is a fun word, itself! (^o^)

    December 30, 2006

  • Vermilion...yessssssssss. (^o^) Pomegranate...not so much. (~-^)

    December 29, 2006

  • Asativum, thanks! I've heard that one, too.

  • Thanks, yoshiyahu! I had forgotten about "drowning" coming out as "drownding." People here do that, too. And I don't know many people who use "clitoris," but if they did, they'd probably stumble on it, too. ;P

    "Ambulance" gets changed into "AMBA lance" around here. Just as "library" often becomes "LIE berry." *shudders* I also just remembered "tubular," which sometimes sounds like "toobler."

    December 16, 2006

  • "Vietnamese" often becomes "Vietmanese," in my area (Texas). "Spaghetti" sometimes turns into "Pasketti," and "macrame" is, on occasion, pronounced "muh KRAYME" by those who don't know how to use the pronunciation guides in their dictionaries.

    Thanks to sarra for "itinerary," as well, which stuck another one into my head: "potpourri," which I have heard someone say as "POT purry." ;P

    December 12, 2006

  • hehehe Thanks! So many musical terms are in Italian, which I happen to think is one of the most beautiful languages in existence. I love to sing in Italian! I only wish I could speak it. ;P

    December 6, 2006

  • Ah, you cannot steal what I freely give away. Beautiful words are like love; the more we give away, the more we receive, in return. (^-^)

    Btw, I just checked out your LJ. I, too, suffer from severe chronic depression. I am going to comment in your post, as I think you would be a wonderful new friend for me. My LJ name is Kaichi_Satake.

  • Runcible! Ooh, I love that one. Runcible P(eriweather) Plugnickel. That could be a W. C. Fields pseudonym. :D

    December 3, 2006

  • Thanks, everyone! These are all great! I'm going to add them! :D

    --Kaichi

    December 2, 2006

  • That'd probably be a somnfabulist or a somndictionist. (Yes, I'm making those up.)

    December 2, 2006

  • that I stole "appoggiatura" from quotato. It was just so nice, rolling it over my tongue, that I just HAD to have it!! ;P

    December 1, 2006

  • "appoggiatura"!!!

    This is a beautiful word. I like it. I may have to steal it. ;P

    November 30, 2006

  • Ooh, we have several words in common! And you have quite a few that I also like but couldn't think of, earlier. Like "carbuncle" and "loblolly!" Aaaaaah! Another addiction, this site!!!! (O.o)

  • Bravo, amigo. I must say however, until 9/11 flying was a dream job to have...never was there a time I didn't love it except for those few times when the chips were down and unpleasant decisions had to be made. Alas, I can't really recommend the career field anymore.

  • Re: "but I always LOVED doing all those calculations on the "computer," helped along with a freshly-sharpened number 2 pencil. (^-^)"

    Good for you! I suppose it could be likened to doing sudoku and X-word puzzles, which I love, but when flying's been a career, you tend to think differently about manual flight planning. I just love that a whiz wheel exists and does what it does (along with the slipstick).
