Licentious Lexicography


My 24 hours of Rehab worked like gangbusters. Yeah, right. The minute I got sprung, I went cruising the wrong side of the tracks, trawling for bad words. I picked up some pretty rough trade, too. Just look at the Words Gone Wild I brought home with me.

Twisted Linguistics condescended to let me play with the wild bad words a little bit. They won't let me torment them, though. They're hoarding all the fun for themselves.

casuality – Laid back, very light literature, conducive to free love. I'm not sure about this one; what do you think? Adjective, adverb, or some kind of reanimated noun?

Shanhai – Greeting to a person called Shan; also a particularly lethal martial arts move (favored by many a friendly neighborhood dominatrix).

reacieve - Reach and ye shall get, especially if you're looking for love in all the wrong places.

stonebriated – How I get when I’ve had a Word fix.

hillarious – There’s plenty of air in them there hill areas -- where Sadie Hawkins Day is very popular and the chasing is good.

philantropic – The tropics of Philadelphia, soon to be featured in a dirty and very banned book.

I'm considering letting this one move in with me:

hoime – Oi’m thinking of setting up a hoime with this big, bad, grungy, macho hombre of a word. Oh, ho is me.

I'm not really bored (as the picture may imply). What I've been all morning is harried, overwhelmed, and disorganized. There's been no time to contemplate whether I'm bored or not. I haven't even had time to get a Britney report or catch the latest sideshow in the Anna Nicole circus.

What do your hands say about you? (I'm sorry; I have no problem with my analysis, but that picture scares me. I mean, it looks like the aftermath of being ripped apart by wild weredingos. )


What Your Hands Say About You

You are logical, analytical, and rational. You have good verbal skills.

Idealistic and dreamy, you tend toward the impractical. You have a knack for getting yourself in sticky situations.

Consistent and reliable, you like to count on structure and routine in your life.

Your emotions tend to be nervous and potent. Your energy - both positive and negative - deeply impacts your life.

What?!

Sorry, I wanted to be a cutie. My hand thing got it pretty close. Scary.

You are artistic, intuitive, and inspired. You have good people skills.

Idealistic and dreamy, you tend toward the impractical. You have a knack for getting yourself in sticky situations.

Consistent and reliable, you like to count on structure and routine in your life.

Your emotions tend to be nervous and potent. Your energy - both positive and negative - deeply impacts your life.

I am glad the word rehab failed and if you are not sure if you are bored or not then you are not bored, just not challenged. Take it from the person usually so bored they had to create an imaginary world to escape from their imagination.

I'm sorry, your hand -- what?! What are you doing?:)

I do know that I'm not bored. I've worked entirely too hard all day and now I'm just beat. And punchy. I very much hope that I'll have some time to get bored this evening.

I see nothing wrong with dreamy, impractical, or sticky situations. Works for me.

Idealistic and dreamy, you tend toward the impractical. You have a knack for getting yourself in sticky situations.

Brainy and intelligent, you are intellectual to the point of being incomprehensible.

Your emotions tend to be nervous and potent. Your energy - both positive and negative - deeply impacts your life.

I think a couple of things must be taken into consideration. One is does a person's fingernails grow. Not everyone's does. And as is in my case, I hate long fingernails, but mine grow at a rapid pace so I'm always cutting them. Other than that it's pretty accurate on what it says about me.
And PLEASE don't give me that nonsense about how if I didn't cut my fingernails so much they wouldn't grow as fast. They always have grown fast.

Serena Joy said...

Roxan, my nails grow fast, too, as does my hair. I think it's an old wives tale that cutting nails and cutting hair makes them grow faster.

You are logical, analytical, and rational. You have good verbal skills.

Flexible and broad minded, you can fit in to any situation. There's no telling where your life will take you.

Consistent and reliable, you like to count on structure and routine in your life.

Your emotions tend to be nervous and potent. Your energy - both positive and negative - deeply impacts your life.




and lots of other stuff.

I'm glad you strayed back into the wanton path, Serena...I was becoming a little worried on your behalf. We can't have you turning 'goody-goody' on us, nor do we want to see you having withdrawals! Keep on the licentious, libidinous, wicked path. It's much more fun!

Liz said...

Is there supposed to be music playing, serena?

I noticed the new music bit on the top of your sidebar and thought that I must ask you how to do it. Then I realised it wasn't playing!!

Serena Joy said...

Sounds to me like you got good hands, Camille.:)

Not to worry, Lee. I'm out of withdrawal, mainly because I went and got another Words fix. I guess that pretty much kills my chances of getting to be a goody-goody. LOL.

Liz, I'm having a lot of trouble with the music. There's supposed to be a little music player -- with controls. Alas, it doesn't seem to be compatible with all browsers and a lot of people can't see/hear it. I only put it in because I was experimenting with music for another site. If I can't get it universally compatible/accessible, I think I'll just remove it altogether.
