Re: Word of Today

Freestyling ...

Not really from today, but reflecting on my youngest child's development, I recalled that he was freestyling about breakfast and lunch to the tune of a song he knows well on Christmas Eve ... he often makes up new lyrics ... he's 5.

Re: Word of Today

How about confabulate, sounds very funny. There's no real reason to use it but sounds interesting.

Re: Word of Today

Nice words, ladies..I can especially relate to the procrastination. Fortunately, it gets really boring to procrastinate, after a certain hybernation period.

Not sure if I like reserved or discrete more..

Ok, for those who want something special special, here is a term in Tok Pisin, from Papua New Guinea, gras bilong fes, which you may have guessed (grass belonging to the face) means beard. Beard is in. Beards and bowties.

Re: Word of Today

I subbed art classes today, it's a treat actually, even unexpectedly and on Friday.

So, Today's Special is dare. Since daring makes people really happy. We made good stuff.

Dench


(a new word in UK street slang - and the final accolade for Dame Judy Dench! Means 'cool/wicked' as in 'it's well Dench, man')
