Favorite Word:

Replacing bricoleur as my favorite word, farrago means something similar to bricolage and is the word that tripped up my top score on Spelling Bee. Take bits and pieces and put them together. Another good word that means something similar is juxtaposition--putting dissimilar things side by side. Maybe I should also add hoarding? My mind is a farrago. Who knows how farrago?

Least Favorite Word:

I always miss this word in the spelling bee. If I ever see a fauteuil, I'll sit on it.

Favorite Quote:

"There are three things to remember when teaching: know your stuff, know whom you are stuffing, and then stuff them elegantly."
- Lola May, quoted by a student who said I do this--wow!
