My lexicon

Laney told me this morning that I couldn't use large words before 8 a.m. She said that polemical was too long of a word to stay whilst still rubbing the sleep from your eyes. So, I guess that my quintessential pontifications have been floccinaucinihilipilificated.

floccinaucinhilpilificated could never be used to score big points in Scrabble ~ I suggest not memorizing that one. - Kent

OH MY! I was just going about my business just stalking people as usual, when I saw a link to a blog for "laney and taylor," and I about died! But I didn't actually die until I verified that it really was you two! How could I have been ignorant to the existence of what has now become my favorite site!!! So happy that this blog will help me to stay up on the lives of my favorite people! Love you both. -liz hansen

Well, technically, the word is floccinaucinhilpilification, but seeing that I'm such a master of the english language as I am, I can turn any adjective ending in "-tion" in a noun. :P

I might not talk them big words like you folk, but by golly I did good in a couple of them spellin' bees as a boy and I think you got yourself a missin' "i" or two somewhere in that there big word. If I was you, which I ain't, I'd go put another one them i's between that there "n" and "h" and between that there “l” and “p.” My opponent done the same darn thing, but she forgot that there “i” between them there “p” and “l.” When they go and give me that there word, you should a heard it, everybody shuddered something fierce, but by golly, I just goes and tell myself, that I gots to remember to put them i’s between every last one of them letters that comes between them two c’s. The whistling that came after I go and spelled myself: F-L-O-C-C-I-N-A-U-C-I-N-I-H-I-L-I-P-I-L-I-F-I-C-A-T-I-O-N. I got myself a trophy for that one, I did.

Thanks Tyson. Spelling wasn't my strongest subject, but apparently it was yours. To me, it is just enough to know the big words, but I'm glad I could rely on a fellow hick to correct me.
