Well, ain't that just adorkable?

I have fallen in love with the Unword Dictionary. I have read every single word. And I’m just itching to use some of them.

I think my favorite is:

30. flabbygast (flăb’ē-găst’)

  1. a. (v.tr.) To be over come with astonishment that despite excessive dieting you haven’t lost a pound.
  2. b. (v.tr.) (adj) As if struck dumb with astonishment that you haven’t lost a pound after a rigorous diet.

Brilliance of the Day: Thanks to Jeremy James for leading me to the discovery of Tomorrowville, a blog by David Isaak, author of Shock and Awe.

OMG, I'm a glabbygast!

What do you call it when you're on a diet and you gain a pound?

Writenow, you have some pretty awesome words on your blog, too. I should have included those!

Happy New Year, Rhonda!!!
