OK, if it says "deleted_user", don't talk to it, folks. That person is long gone, the topic is outdated, let's post fresh to get going, okay? Thank you. And tahnk you to Sambod, too, for closing and reporting such. :-)
So, I was rereading a book I really love last night, and the author made some fun points.
Terry Pratchett, Lords & Ladies:
Elves are wonderful. They provoke wonder.
Elves are marvelous. They cause marvels.
Elves are fantastic. They create fantasies.
Elves are glamorous. They project glamour.
Elves are enchanting. They weave enchantment.
Elves are terrific. They beget terror. (From: Lords & Ladies, Terry Pratchett)
.... Which really made mme stop and think about words. I mean, really think. Again. More.
Terrific. Terror. Terrible. Terror. Why exactly do we use some of these words as positives, anyway?!
Then again, look at these fun words:
"Uncouth" (rude)... we have no "couth"
"Comfit" (a sweet treat) but "discomfit" means "to make uncomfortable"
Non-chalant... but there is no "chalant".
Untoward (not socially okay, as in behavior) vs... a preposition. toward, meaning "going/directional".
And, while you can technically use "kempt" for "groomed", it's rare enough that most of us only know "unkempt" (ungroomed/untidy).
On which note, I'm outta here b/c I'm on day three of the insomnia headache, and it's another sauna-like day here. I may start digging a cave soon. Hmm.... Oh, wait. I live on rocks you have to dynamite. Blast! Pun intended.
Today my hubby woke up promptly at 7 AM, ate breakfast, did his exerrcises, then walked up to me and said, "It's Saturday isn't it.""Yes," I said.And now my hubby is pouting b/c he woke up early on a weekend, as if he actually does this on a weekday, LOL.***Turn on the the sound of a David Attenborough nature special in Africa, and itturns out my cats love to listen to hyenas.
