  1. My 900th POST!! Go me!

    Ok, now I understand that this game may have been done already, but I wanted to post it anyway. It might be a game for me and crap for someone else but here goes. I LOVE words. They are quintessentail and out right make me giddy.

    So for this game all you have to do is post a word that you love. A word that makes you smile every time you read it. A word that you would like to use everyday if you could. But like me you have to keep your BIG words muffled since they might cause a proliferation of critical thinking that some might consider painful.

    That being said, grab your Dictionary and Thesaurus and lets have some fun.

    For example: audacious, cheeky or even fuck. (Sure fine if it tickles your giggle)

    But really have fun with it. I'll start with

    Ephemeral -Lasting only for a short time (maybe like this game but it just sounds so nice) and its my 900th post!
