  1. I consider myself a bit of a wordsmith, but there are lots of words here I have never heard of; might need to spend some time in a dictionary this coming weekend! congrats on reaching 100 posts!

  2. Thanks Betty! If you haven't heard of them, they might not be real words, I noticed spellcheck hadn't heard of a few of them either. But I like them nonetheless (also a possible made up word)! Have a great day, and give that corgi a nice belly rub for me!

  3. you have always loved minutiae. seriously, why didn't we watch the televised spelling bee? it would have been hilarious to watch together. theirs always next year. yes, i spelled theirs wrong on purpose, b/c i knew you would notice. :)

  4. I love the word doppelganger, I use it as often as I can. If I were to start a gang, we would be called the Doppelgangers.

    I couldn't comment on the post about this one, but I just had to tell you that I had a very satisfying laugh because of your mistaken phone call. Thank you!
