Favorite Word:

gossamer
This is such a beautiful word. It sounds how it means ... kind of like an onomatopoeia? Okay, so the first time I came across this word, there was an instant understanding between us despite me not knowing anything about its etymology.

Least Favorite Word:

tubular
Since I was a wee lass, this word has vexed me. My first introduction to it was in the early 90s as one of the synonyms for "cool," but I knew enough to break down the word into its literal meaning, whereupon I could not put the pieces back together. It was also the name of the hardest, most traumatic level in Super Mario World. At least there were several pipes in it. Those are tubular.
