Excoriate IS a great word. I saw "excoriating" used on CNN.com today. Did you Fulit?

Popinjay. Used a lot in ye olde worlde literature but still a cool way to describe someone foppish like Hugh Grant.

Defenenstrate (sp?) the act of throwing someone/something through a pane of glass.

Mojo.

Kipple. Phillip K. Dicks word to describe the accumulated rotting festering pile of junk and filth the world had become in 'Do androids dream of electric sheep?'

Blob.

Froufrou. all that chintz and flouncy drapery that church ladies like to decorate their homes with.

Hippopotamus. a lovely cuddly word for one of natures most dangerous creatures.

I had my students make a list of their 10 favorite words to put into a poem. My words were:

contradictory
facade
anthropomorphic
specificity
enthusiasm
sojourn
ecclectic
loyal
nostalgia
empathetic

According to my mother, one of my earliest words was "caps," as in hubcaps, as I would often to point to things asking what they were. Hubcaps were close to my line of sight, I suppose.

Favorite part of speech? A tie between adjectives and adverbs. I just love description. It's so... so, uh, good. :p One of my nicknames as an English teacher is The Champion of the Adverb. You didn't "finish quick;" it's "finish quickly." Teacher pet peeves... geez. :rolleyes:

speaking of which, WEEEEEEEEE!!!! is always fun.

audacious - used that one today...
horsepower - such an arbitrary measurement that somehow means so much to so many people - including me...
art - it's important
love - it is, too...
jive - it's become the word to sum up all the bad in my life recently - bad things "jive me out..." (it actually comes from a simpsons episode - mr. burns implements a calisthenics program at the power plant, and says during one excercise "breathe in the love... push out the jive...")
