Anyone here ever watch Word Girl (and her monkey sidekick, Captain Fuzzyface?)
No? Me neither.
It came out around the time I was too old to watch it (early middle school, maybe?) when most of my friends were watching Cartoon Network and Disney Channel and all that. Somehow I kind of skipped right from PBS Kids to Gossip Girl and then to movies and now almost all the movies I watch are R-rates and I have no idea how that happened.
But Word Girl was pretty charming for something I was very much too old for. But in reality this is just a way to segue into a new segment of my favorite words- I thought of her catchphrase “Word Up!” and a nostalgia baby was born.
Optimistic and out for blood
One of those weird insults (like galoot, also excellent, possibly better than jamoke) that doesn’t get used anymore. Ooo! Or ‘lout’.
Reminds me of oceans and breeze. Makes Mom think of rabies? Understandably, we have different feelings about it. Part of it for me is that I really want to read L’Ecume des Jours (Froth of the Days).
Why do I like all of these words for little imp-like children?
And underneath her wimple- she has curlers in her hair!
I’ve even heard her singing in the abbey!
The kind of crime a bumblebee commits. Except deadly serious and human.
Non, je ne regrette rien
As related to the above two- but moxie always makes me think of the doxy from Harry Potter, those awful nuisance-y biting fairies that lay eggs in old sofas.
Had to edit this in because Pence just said it in the debate (doesn’t he remind you of Lotso the evil pink bear from Toy Story 3?)
Anyway- I am full of feck.
