About Me
I'm sorry, but this Visual Thesaurus thing is like a godsend... not because I'm a thesaurus MOron, but because when you take into consideration my superpowered AD/HD and it's comorbid and equally pesky counterpart... my check/recheck OCD tendencies... I come to the conclusion that this thesaurus will keep me busy for HOURS. Heh, just what I need. Another distraction. *Shrug* Oh well, I'm off to map my think because I'm just too impatient to wait any longer.

Favorite Word:

pharmaco(disorienting) is actually my favorite, even though it's not a "real" word. It's not a word in the prescriptive linguistic sense... but if you've ever seen a David Lynch film and/or you are familiar with film theory (especially regarding the voyeuristic elements... and how Lynchian cinema plays on the theme of scopophilia).... yeah, you probably understand what my pseudo-word means, and perhaps even appreciate said pseudo word; otherwise, feel free to ask. I'm an open book.

Least Favorite Word:

It's clearly just... unpleasant. When I hear it in public, I cringe. Maybe... no... Definitely I'm peculiar, but that word is just... "Mmmm, what a tasty, beefy, meaty meallllll." Can we say, 'emesis?'
