love this word - Jabberwocky, 2007-06-08: 12:39:00

petaj Being in Australia really helps with the timing for me. I usually check the cartoon and new definition just before leaving work. Come up with a few ideas on the drive home and then hit the thesaurus and login during the early evening. My problem is, I often don't get to voting before the next definition is up. - petaj, 2007-06-08: 22:10:00
