Posted:heheee nice one! i often get laughs for my choice of random words.

Some favourites include

titillate
uncouth
alas
scurvy knave
intrinsic
conducive
........

hmm - that's all I can think of! I suppose that because so many of the words are used spontaneously it is difficult for me to pinpoint them.

Posted:lol... My generic response to things that I have no genuine response has lately been "interesting" which is so ironic, cos if I actually found it interesting I would undoubtedly have a more thorough reaction to it!

o - just remembered another word:

penchant

and I say "blah blah blah had the unmitigated audacity to blah blah blah" quite often too!

Posted:I think 'blatherings' deserves recognition as a cool word.

Some of these have already been mentioned, but I think these do too:
Vermillion
Veritable
Cacophany
Plethora
Ooze
Bizarre
Multitude
Anything with an X in.


But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:OMG Dom!! roflmao! A couple of weekends ago we had a 3 day doof (psy party in the bush) and at one point there was a very lively discussion about oblongs! There were two passionate beliefs about the definition of oblongs which then digressed into elipses and quadrahedrons.

was quite messy.

another word (that usually gets me out of trouble with the boys) "you're very..... debonaire"

Posted:flash, that's doubly cool as I was reminded of the word 'oblong' at a heavily psy party a few months ago! There must be some connection!

Posted:when I was doing geosciences in archealogy we came across an odd word....
Pedoturbation.

Infact in soil sciences, when your talking about mixing and amalgamation of soils, pretty much any prefix can be added to the suffix turbation.

But this is a subject for aunty to talk about, seemingly as he's still an archeaologist, and I'm only the burnt out wreck of one
