Words.........ahem.
They are prat and parcel of who I am.
I parse them out kindly when I can.

And disburse them at random when I am not in my right mind.
Or left.

I have often discussed and been banned for..........my use of them.

Or the use of terms bandied about in my youth that are no longer considered 'politically correct'.


Go on and chastise me......if you will..
I shall continue to use and abuse the King's English, as it were.....
And all other forms I can utilize,.
Always remember.....kitties are all Angels with fur.

I was told to not be so damned wordy when I was a teen because it really confused my classmates

ok. I googled it, and if that is what Scarecrow has named his Netherlands..well..

I'm not sure if he is any more protective of said personal geographic location than the next man.

There really is something very wrong with you people. Very wrong...

How many words do you know

Interesting little test that estimates how many (English language) words you know.

I'll be honest: I only know 26,600. Roughly as literate as the average fence post. :P
