    Default What are your favourite words?

    One of my new favourite words is 'delusionist'. I won't post a link to the Urban Dictionary because there's a lot of stuff on that site that would not be in line with Org rules. It's a lovely sounding word with many applications.

    Delusionist: Someone who is a master of their own delusions to the point where they exist in the dual planes of true and false realities, often exhibiting extreme mood swings resulting from the conflicts of planar coexistence and living in an impenetrable state of constant denial. The delusionist often has a hard time interpreting non-verbal communication, and in some extreme cases, straight-forward verbal communication, when it contradicts their false reality. Along with their failure to take even the most obvious of hints, they often have a high opinion of themselves and are obsessed with keeping their ego over-inflated to compensate for their numerous inadequacies. In an effort to illustrate some degree of normalcy, and to offset his or her frequent visitations to the false reality when relating to a particular subject matter, the delusionist will have a tendency to point out and/or over-emphasize any incident or situation that is merely a mediocrity in the true reality.

    Another of my favourite words is 'sugarbabe'. It applies to a number of my younger friends.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

    I like bestiality, flagellation and necrophilia.......but most of the time i feel like im flogging a dead horse!

    The old favourites from school days are Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Floccinaucinihilipilification (dunno if the spelling is right on those two lol)

    Pillock and plonker are two occasionally used words along with the often used boll***s for when it's not worked as planned and ouchies for when something hurts lol
    "I want to die peacefully in my sleep just like my grandfather did......not screaming in terror like his passengers"

    At last a Scots word. I like stramash, guddle and bisum. I also like antidisestablishmentarianism. My dad used to make me spell it as a child. I also like elliptical. I like the words because of how they feel in my mouth.

    I got a room full of blank faces when I used that in an engineering meeting a few months ago. I had suggested fabricating a simple metal block to act as a plinth under something that was too low. You would think I had used some obscure term from classical architecture (my other pet hate about the otherwise excellent PD James).
