CAWOW!

Yesterday, as I was lulled by the dulcet drone of neon lights in the dentist's office, interrupted only every other millisecond or so by the SCRAPE, SCRAPE, SCRAPE of metal against plaque, I had an epiphany. I'm going to be a better person. However, I haven't made any promises I can't keep in order to achieve this goal. I feel that is conducive to failure, which makes me grumpy, which will make me the antithesis of a better person.

Why can't I just be me? But better? I couldn't think of a good reason, so there you have it. Typing this post today is the new and improved, better Zube Girl! Now with less plaque. Yay!

A special thanks to Texas Soccer Mom for participating in the fun this week and using dulcet in an entry. I'd like to ask folks if you all wouldn't mind leaving me a comment if you use the CAWOW! on your blog. Sometimes, the two brain cells I have left start to fight, and this causes me to have difficulty remembering shit because I can't seem to get either of them to do my memory bidding for me.

This week's word was brought to us by Dutch Oven who, while he doesn't have a blog, is funnier than shit and married to the lovely Bonanza Jellybean. Here 'tis:

pulchritudinous - adjective
-used of persons only; having great physical beauty
-"pulchritudinous movie stars"
-beautiful
-delighting the senses or exciting intellectual or emotional admiration

I'd like to insert a reminder here. HELP! I need suggestions for next week's word. Perhaps you all want me to come up with my own words, I don't know. But, remember the story about the two brain cells. I'm already up against the world here, people. Some more suggestions are in order.

Well, I'm off to play. Take care of yourselves, you pulchritudinous bunch!

Niiiceee! you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a christian marriage blog. It pretty much covers christian marriage related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Zube Girl said...

I was going to delete that message anon, but I figured it would be more fun to say fuck your Christian Marriage blog. :-)

Fucking spamming mother fucker.

Anduin said...

LOL! Zube Girl, too funny.

I have to admit, I've never heard this word of the week before and I think that if someone called me that, I would hit them.

Storm said...

hello Zube! Been out of action for a while (and will be for a while longer), just thought I'd drop in. You seemed to have picked up a few spammers.

I'm in the same boat as andouin andorian... although I have a fairly large lexicon, I've never even heard pulchritudinous (it's even hard to type out!) and would've gotten all butt-hurt if someone told me I was pulchri-anything.

Bonanza Jellybean said...

Just so everyone knows, Dutch Oven is just showing off. I've never heard him speak it that I can remember. I always thought it sounded like something to do with having a head cold or sinus infection.

Most of the words he uses are things like "food", "hungry", "tired", "horny" and "truck." Don't let him fool you. :)

Bonanza Jellybean said...

I checked out the Christian Marriage blog, just out of perverse curiosity, and I'm with you. Fuck 'em.

Zube Girl said...

Anduin and Storm- Sorry for the berating of the spammer but that was the fourth spam message in a row. I had just finished deleting the others, and got tired of it. Hee.

I'll have to see if I get anyone all PO'd using the word pulchritudinous!

Zube Girl said...

Bonanza Jellybean- Funny, Zube Boy has a very similar vocabulary.

And yeah, with that other blog. Christian power tools, my ass. Loser.

Would you believe that Kyle once sent me a love-letter-postcard in which he described me as pulchritudinous?

I wasn't nearly so impressed by his use of the word as I was by the fact that he spelled it correctly.

crowww said...

Next week maybe a word with less than six vowels? I'd use something like that in my blog but I ain't no "Nuclear Psychiatrist!!" By the way thanks for the votes earlier on Battle -o- the blogs. :)

kyknoord said...

This is a word that should be written only and never spoken (unless you want to brush up on your Daffy Duck impressions).

Zube Girl said...

Mother Goosemouse- That is awesome!

Crowww- Point taken! Any suggestions? ;-)

Kyknoord- But see, I really want to see if I can piss someone off. Naturally, that's what I want to see.

CAWOW suggestion: "propitious" -

propitious (pruh-PISH-uhs) adjective

1. Presenting favorable conditions.

2. Favorably inclined; kindly.

[From Middle English propicius, from Latin propitius, ultimately from Indo-European root pet- (to rush, fly). Other words from this root are feather, pin, impetus, and pinnacle.]

Today's word in Visual Thesaurus.

"[Foreign] aid had a propitious effect on growth in poorer developing countries in the 1960s and on middle-income countries in the 1970s." Girish P Pant; Aid and Growth; Kathmandu Post (Nepal); Jul 15, 2005.
