Saying a Good Word is Like French Kissing... Myself.

Linguistic masturbation.

I love good words. I once had a suitor that called me at night and read from a thesaurus. I loved it... It never got him laid, but about 15 years later I had a one night stand with his hotter-younger-dumber brother. *SMILE*

I was listening to a new hip-hop song and I thought the lyrics said "I'm despondent like that." I thought that was pretty brilliant.

*I love the way my mouth feels when I make an effort to enunciate it.
*I love the thought of a sexy man (the vocalist) being trisyllabic.
*I love the sound of repetitive, hard consonants. Okay... breathe Savvy.

... I had no idea what it meant, but damn it got me going.

Turns out that wasn't what he was saying. Not even close. Maybe he'll change it for me?

Even if I did hallucinate this word I think it came into my life right when I needed it. Thank you malfunctioning brain.

This will be a new list of word that make me want to have sex with an intellectual... or his hotter-younger-dumber brother at a later date.

Acrimonious. I've always loved this word. It describes... me. I think the writers of Rescue Me love it too because they use it a lot.
