Weekend Blitz

This post will have to last you till Sunday night, be brave, I am sure you all can make it.
But in order to make it as painless as possible we are going to give you a couple different things to look at.
----------------------------
First order of business,
The Things have decided to do something special this coming Christmas.
Instead of the traditional approach, they registered at Heifer International.

We will revisit this topic as Christmas approaches but this gift registry will be added to the links (soon). It is our sincere hope that if charitable giving hasn't been at least a small part of your Christmas celebration in the past that this year it will be.

--------------------------

Despite the fact it probably speaks to an unwellness of mind the Alpha Female gets the giggles every time she visits this site. Please check it out and help us determine if she is in need of treatment, and if so, what do you recommend, ice cream? drugs? spa therapy? electroshock? Do tell.

-----------------------------------------------

The Alpha Female is a word lover, obviously.

Here are a couple of favorites:

cynography
writing or treatise on dogs

delphinine
of, like or pertaining to dolphins

exlex
outside the law

islomania
craze or obsession for islands

planomania
abnormal desire to wander and disobey social norms

psilosophy
shallow philosophy; limited knowledge

quadragenarian or quinquagenarian
a person between 40 and 49 years of age

verbomania
craze for words

Do you have a couple choice words to share? Oh, come on, you know you do, tell us!

If you want more of them, check here.

---------------------------------------

We've shared it before, but it bears repeating.

No insults quite like Shakespeare.

"Come, you are a tedious fool. To the purpose." Taken from: Measure for Measure

Now, go get your own!

-----------------------------------------

Alright, if there is nothing in there for you,

go read here till your paradigm shifts, ya malcontent.

Have a good weekend!

have a great weekend. Can't wait to see more of the 'Heiferware'.

You gave me a new fave word, when I kept moving my blog....paripatetic? something like that?

:-)

I like flibbertigibbet.. a frivolous, flighty, excessively talkative person. It's just fun to say.

oh by the way..
Everybody's got a baby kangaroo
Your's is pink but mine is blue.
Hers was small but...

I hate that they never finished that line. Did they and I don't know it?

Logophile said...

BS~ That is awesome! I love archaic insults!

Kyahgirl~
Yup, paripatetic, that was you! Glad you found some new digs you are liking, BTW. The Things are pretty excited about the Christmas idea. They are asking gramma and grampa and everyone to give them something from their registry rather than toys. I am impressed.

Lily~
They never did! i am so glad I am not the only one annopyed by that.

Thy wit is a very bitter sweeting, it is a most sharp sauce.

Punk rampant, scurvy knave!
(MY personal all time favorites!)

Wow and I thought Doug's site had big words.

Charity is always admirable, but are we really discussing Christmas already? *getting anxious*

Have a great weekend Logo!

babyjewels said...

snavy said...

Chuck Norris is a pansy! (ha!)

"Thou froward hasty-witted pignut!"

Essentially, what I called some jackass on the freeway today. This is going to come in handy. Thanks, Logo!

Oh, I don't drive the Studabaker, but Fozzy lets me ride shotgun.

Egan said...

BabyJewels, do you have any idea what the word paradigm means? While you're at it, what's a heifer?

Chuck Norris is hot these days and it's not because of his erotic late night tv ads with Ms. Brinkley.

Minka said...

I´ll get me some of that planomania stuff. Seems nice!
And islomania has been a favourite of mine for quite a while now!

puppytoes said...
