Now that I've sent out my first batch of queries, I freak out a little every time I open my e-mail. Which is probably once every 30 minutes. Does anyone else do this?
In other news, this site is completely awesome. It's called Save the Words, and you can peruse a cool Flash-y page and adopt an obscure word. You promise to use it in sentences, etc., to save it from being dropped from the dictionary. It's wordly nerdly fun at its best.
The site even has ideas for how to use your word: give your sweetie a pet name like "Mulcible," dazzle your friends at Scrabble (I suck at Scrabble, to my everlasting shame. My engineer math-brained husband is better than I am. Oh the humiliation...), or insert it into your texts and e-mails.
I'm thinking of adopting pigritude, which means laziness. I like words that can apply to my life.
P.S. Someone should adopt lampistry because that's a cool word.
