a Christmas present from Mel


blog-on-fridge


And these aren’t even a twentieth of the words included in this special-edition Laura Egley Taylor Magnetic Poetry Kit which I just received from my coworker, miracle-worker Melyssa Holik. Since we have a dorm-sized fridge here at the office, I’m not sure there’s even room for all the words there. . .


words-from-melAnd what words they are! We got your very appropriate thaumaturgy, mercury, and retrograde; fun words like beslubbering, shenanigan, fugacious, and antediluvian poppycock; uplifting words like bucolic, wabi-sabi, and sheets, of, and  easter; inspiring words like creativity, lilt, and coffee; and—I’m pleased to reveal here—a brand-new word, coined by Mel, guaranteed to further your communication skills: malmanfricate.**


Thanks in advance for all the wordplay fun, Mel!

*hippopotomonstrosesquedalian: of or pertaining to extremely long words


**malmanfricate: to rub one’s hands together in a back-and-forth motion in gleeful anticipation of some nefarious undertaking

So did she special-order it to include your favorite words? That would sound like a really cool magnetic poetry kit option. .-= candace Walsh´s last blog ..The First Stage of Labor =-.
Even better; she made the kit, so she chose lots of words that she associates with me, words I say a lot, words I like, etc. Made me feel very recognized. . . .-= Laura Egley Taylor´s last blog ..The First Stage of Labor =-.
This looks like a lot of fun. And what a wonderful idea that she chose words you say a lot. Very very cool gift! .-= Jennifer Margulis´s last blog ..Take a Segway Tour of Jacksonville =-.
Oh--and you may be on to something with the idea of a refrigerator blog. I wonder if anyone has ever had a refrigerator blog? Guest posts could be readers' photos of their refrigerators!! .-= Jennifer Margulis´s last blog ..Take a Segway Tour of Jacksonville =-.
