Word Up!

It's time again for Monday Listicles and this week I'm suppose to make a list of ten words that make me smile. I'm a bit of a logophile so this topic is right up my alley. Some words made my list because I like the way they sound, others because of the definition and others just because.

1. incognito

2. apropos- It's possible I was chatting in senior English and got busted when I was called on to read the vocabulary words from the chalkboard. I mispronounced it & the entire class laughed hysterically.

3. apparently-I'm told I use this one very frequently.

4. partake-As in I like to partake of nachos and margaritas.

5. pontificate

6. gregarious

7. marsupial

8. food porn-I am addicted to glossy, photos of delicious looking eats.

9. foodgasm-I made it up and the definition is self explanatory. You're welcome.

10. sarcasm-makes the world go round.

Love No. 9 and 10. I'm a fan of sarcasm and just can't understand people who don't appreciate it. :)

I agree completely. Sarcasm rules!

I overuse "apparently" too. And totally, and seriously. I like your foodgasm word. Nice one!

Apparently I have been overusing it for quite some time. One of my hs friends saved all the notes & letters I had written and compiled them in a notebook for me at least 15 years ago and I could have created an APPARENTLY drinking game.

That is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite words and I can't believe I failed to include it on my's a crying shame.

My cousin's wife is constantly posting food porn on her Facebook page--I love it. I agree--plethora is a good one too.
