Oh, cool. I just started collecting words for a favorite words TT.

You just have to say "garbanzos" with zest, don't you? :)

To heck with a dictionary!
Please just tell me, what is Junt?

and fannelmouthed( well I can guess that is how we wake up after a night of drinking) But, is it in the dictionary???

Red said...

Flannelmouthed?! I think there should be an emoticon for this!

I like your "mew", "fey" and "plinth". "Gnat"... not so much! Reminds me of "gnaw", which reminds me of rodents, and that cannot be!

Two of my favourites are "mellifluous" and "clarity"...

* (asterisk) said...

Sphinx. Floccinaucinihilipilification. Persistent. Disingenuous. Archaeology. Cunt. Sgabuzzino. Velocity. Precision. Sadomasochistic. Antiquity. Canvas. Crisis.

I'm sure my list will change tomorrow, but there are certainly some that will remain.

Healing Room, Yep, it's in a dictionary!

"flannelmouth; a person who talks too much, esp. in a boastful or deceitful way."

And junt is "Stuff" or joint, thing, "the shit", or it might be a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

4Dins, Red, *,

All the words listed here are lovely...and I think I would end up mixing them all up and adding them to a major list.
