Love this. I want to believe it’s in it’s infancy.

tcr! tcr! · Jun 24, 2019 at 3:38 pm

Kinda/sorta. I wrote the gist of it at least a month ago and I couldn’t really get it passed its current variation. It’s almost too structured.

I’ve always thought the word “bohemian” was derogatory. Yay or nay?

I think some folks will use it negatively in reference to people deemed hippyish. The derogatory term for people who actually came from Bohemia (my heritage) was bohunk.

Complete opposite. They stand for truth, beauty, freedom and most of all, LOVE. My source was Moulin Rouge.

Roger Waters wrote the good word

tcr! · May 13, 2019 at 8:23 pm

The Dark Side of Pink Floyd

“There wasn’t any room for anyone else to be writing,” Waters told Rolling Stone in 1987. “There was no point in Gilmour, Mason or Wright trying to write lyrics. Because they’ll never be as good as mine. Gilmour’s lyrics are very third-rate. They always will be. And in comparison with what I do, I’m sure he’d agree.”

Sounds about right to me.

You know it’s been a long day when you struggle with why Spellcheck won’t accept perfectably as a word.

I would argue that “perfectably” should be acceptable. “Perfectable” means “able to be perfected”, so something that is done “perfectably” would be done in a way that is able to be perfected. I mean, that said, it’s probably not the word you were going for. 😆

tcr! tcr! · Apr 30, 2019 at 4:25 pm

I was trying to write “perfectly acceptable” but my brain was dead so apparently I was trying to mash it all into one word.

On my way to the dentist I was trying to say “perfectably” out loud over and over again. I couldn’t do it. 😅😢

keamoose keamoose · Apr 30, 2019 at 4:28 pm

Ahh, I see. Next time just say it’s “all good”. :P Or just write “HAKUNA MATATA M*****F*****” and turn on your vacation auto-reply. Cause that always works out.

The spelling of the highlight

tcr! · Apr 18, 2019 at 12:47 pm

How the hell do you guys spell “high light” ??

The dictionary says it’s #1 below but all I see is “igh” over and over again. The horror.

1- highlight
2- high light
3- hilite
4- hi-lite
5- yellow marker

PS- those are your only options. Don’t make this more complicated that I’ve already made it.

#1, but #2 if you are talking about a light fixture that is far off the ground.

Fine. #1 it is. But I’m going to go with hi-lite.

Even if you’re wrong 😉

But what if you were highlighting her hi-lites in a room with a high light

tcr! tcr! · Apr 19, 2019 at 8:15 am

I’d probably be high then 😊

Kris · Apr 20, 2019 at 8:31 am

No no no . We will have none of that

tcr! tcr! · Apr 20, 2019 at 12:48 pm

Haha! Yep. I’m done being high. Now I just hi-lite. 😊

Best thing I’ve read all week:

I use the F word all the time. I am known for dropping the F word into most conversations at almost any time. Some people are shocked. Even people who use the F word themselves.

Get comfortable with the F word. Using the F word at the right time and in the right place can work wonders for your relationships with people and the success of your business.

Funny thing is that the author never actually used the F word. 😊

ActBlue Unsubscribe

Maybe I’m just old and still see email as sacred, and as such rigorously protect it.

I also shallwould, in fact, like “drivelly” to be a real word.

I see no reason that can’t be a real word. If you need a more formal version though, “driveling bullshit” is totally dictionary-backed.

tcr! tcr! · Feb 10, 2018 at 7:39 am

I kinda like that better. Nobody can get hung up on what I’m saying then, like that’s the issue and not the real issue: ActBlue subscribed me to some driveling bullshit newsletter.

I hate the word “pontificating.” Don’t ever say that.

Okay fine, you can say that. But only if when talking you also use words of the same caliber in conjunction.

One does not simply declare, “I was pontificating about ponies.”

It’s like eating chick nuggets, french fries, and a side of crème brûlée.

A renegade wordsmith

I think “wordsmith” is one of those words you don’t get to call yourself if you’re being serious.

In related news, I don’t know what poet wrote this link bait’s last three words:

she is neat

Maybe it is “neat” that her fingers are flying over the frets but Maggie writes better headlines for her pretend milk commercials.

i am certain of Maggie’s superiority. she’s so much cooler than neat. she’s the bees knees. she’s the cat’s pajama’s. she’s wicked. she’s boss. she’s bitchin’.
