Eclectic. Just love the sound of it -- meaning is kind of cool, too! In a sketchbook, in a planner, on a napkin... whatever you draw on it all looks great!
I like "eclectic" too Lynne. Just like you said, it not only sounds cool, but is cool.
I'm fond of "slackjawed," for reasons I can't explain. I once had a Russian woman ask me to define the word "actually." This was because it was a kind of a linguistic tic for me. "Actually, there's still some milk in the refrigerator," I'd say - things like that. But when she asked me what "actually" meant in that context, I was dumbstruck. Not to mention slackjawed. Excellent sketch, Suzanne.
Cool drawing -- again, very confident lines. My favorite word, i think (though it might be subject to change tomorrow) is PAMPLEMOUSSE. Means grapefruit in French. And i don't know, it is much friendlier than the fruit itself (which i never liked). In English, i kinda like HENCE. What a cool word.
'galfridian'. that is, to do with geoffrey of monmouth. best word.
i like "Onirique". Dreamlike in french.
BOLACHA!bolacha = cookie in portuguese
Thanks so much for all your words! I don't feel so alone in my nerdiness anymore. Great choices!!!!!! I'll try to use them all in sentences soon :)
I've had a favorite for years..."calliope". Saturday morning cartoons come to mind as they were often featured in WB toons. I haven't otgrown the word or the cartoons!
