Favorite Word:

dogsbody
learned it from Master & Commander series, love its derivation, apply it to myself (sometimes with tongue in cheek, sometimes not) when feeling in charge of too many people's responsibilities even though I take them on voluntarily

Least Favorite Word:

goop
as synonym for ooze / muck, it just grosses me out. looking at visual, I didn't even know of other meanings. knowing now of other meanings, my mind is not changed. I hate the word ; it makes me cringe.
