Word Nerd – Word of the Day – Aeonian


Brought to you in part today, by too much coffee, a love of words, and a desire not to do laundry . . .


Do you have a favorite word? 

I love words, most words. I could never choose a favorite, but there are some words that always come to mind – ONE of my favorites . . .


Now I must find another word to amuse myself with, the laundry isn’t going anywhere . . .

Word Nerd, Word of the Day – Terrific

Terrific is one of those words, you know, the ones we use every day, often not even knowing what they were originally used for. I didn’t always know, but I’ve been keeping a list since I was a kid. I would read dictionaries in my free time, weird? Say’s you, or maybe the person next to you. Whatever, I still do it. So did David Bowie, he was quoted as saying, “Don’t you love the Oxford Dictionary? When I first read it, I thought it was a really really long poem about everything.” and it kind of is.

Word Nerd – Word of the Day – Peruse

It might not really mean what you thought it meant, unless you thought it meant what it means, in that case, it meant what you were thinking  . . . But if you were thinking it meant  something it didn’t actually mean, now you know what to think – wait, I’ve confused myself. No, never mind. I’m good. I think.
