Ridonculous wasn't made up by your son, sorry Moonbeam!
Also, isn't your 'Jillilquy' the exact same as a soliloquy, it's never been specifically used just for a male..

So the use of an exclamation mark wasn't intended to be rude?
Do you really believe that?
Who else did you mock in this thread?

Let's move on, eh?

If automatic spell check wasn't available, i would be a much worse speller... As for auto correct, well i think that has already proved it's fairly shit!
Despite spell check, i still get caught out . . . all the time

Holy crap that poem was long.

I got to 'Balmoral' and decided that being able to say I'd pronounced every word correct wasn't worth the hard slog.

If you really love tractors, and then get over it and don't like them anymore, then you're an EXTRACTOR FAN

If you hold your breath, it's bated. If you exhale, it's debate, and then when you breathe in again, it's rebate. If you're really good at it, you're a master bater

And if you're part of a really big argument, you're a mass debater.

If you permanently bind two things together, they are fused. If you break them apart, they're defused. If you stick them together again, they're refused. If you hate things stuck together, you're confused. If you're one of them, you're infused.

I was just thinking about alliteration... i really like alliteration.
I don't like similes, metaphors are much better. Oh and personification is a good one too. Not a massive fan of onomatopoeia mostly because i can only think of a few examples, zip is the best, followed by drip.. or CRACK!

Crack doesn't make a sound. It's the silent killer.

7. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.
8. Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.
9. Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.
10. Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)
11. Karmageddon: It's like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it's like, a serious bummer.
12. Decafalon (n): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you.
13. Glibido: All talk and no action.

16. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

^ Made my day. Hah. xD I love the English language.
Sometimes words are not sufficient to delineate an experience, whether it is physical or metaphysical. Love is such an experience, but just because it cannot be so absolutely defined, does not negate its presence. Instead, the very nature of encountering such a depth of feeling is tribute to love as a phenomenon that is so intricate that given all the complexities of the English language it is still inadequate.
