Re: Word of Today

Hello together.

Sniffing the mushroom
.

Reminds me certain classes where kids figure out and coin their own words and phrases in English for some stuff and try to use them as often as it is logically possible in a reg communication, it's always fun, we laugh.. It sticks. And makes kids talk English outside of classes.

And then we just hosted a bunch of BBQs and playdates where little kids figured out new names for parents and family and stuck to them.

It's a good spirit. Makes everyone giggle.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find some of these Dictyphora mushrooms?

I am a... ahem... mushroom connoisseur, and I was hoping to add them to my collection.

Tut and I even gave a link, first line: "On the island of Hawaii..." Then goes on to say the exact locations where they did the tests. It reads like they had an awful lot of fun.

Not with little kids, just yesterday.

"Mom, can we never ever live in Hawaii?"
"Uhm, why? Didn't you want to go there one day?"
"They only have coconuts there."

Ayit. I still want to go, though. Not for whatever is discussed here.

I knew you were going to come up with something original, hahahah.

Anyways, it's pretty interesting, personally. How do they get testers...wouldn't natural levels of hormones and libido influence this, it must. If one already has an appetite, a bit of extra pheromone will just nudge it off the charts easily.

Another word of today is ligament.

Re: Word of Today

I saw your thread, it's incredible..I bet Chinese had a less commercial name for what they do with feet, traditionally.

Melissa. I love that herb. I just took a bath in it while drinking infussion of melissa and lemon, hmmm. Naturopathy all the way.

If I put a bell around my neck my family would know where to find me, much better for them to think I am not home and fix their own food

My word today - wordpurge...a very long reply prompted by reading too many EF posts

Re: Word of Today

Water. Pool. Many pools..Beach. Lake.

They are such mundane words. Not sure how to spice it up..poolside and lakeside makes me nicely light headed. Light headed.

Flipflops. Skirt. A dirty cowboy hat.

Breathe! Make those neurones work. Just think how cerebrally fit we are going to die..I am cramming, too. Hang in there and don't forget to enjoy it.

Simple pleasures.

Just now ? 18th century utopianism with a very heated Malthus on the sidelines. Tis variety enough.
I love studying their ideas.. almost done before the next batch.

Was it sunny this week-end ?

My tan says yes

18 cent was intriguing. I think looking back we have a lot to soak up. Not sure how our lives would be, as women, especially in terms of wanting to be educated and knowledgeable. Wasn't it considered hurtful to our innocent souls?

Innocence. And our own, individual definition of it.

More I know, more innocent my soul feels to be. Distant. More angles of povs, no real preference..
