libertybelle good word! - libertybelle, 2008-02-26: 08:49:00

Oh, this is a good one. Though "faginize" would've been nice too if it weren't for the fact that our Dickens-starved, PC society would probably think to lump the first three letters together instead of the first five. "You've got to pick a pocket or two, boys..." - ErWenn, 2008-02-26: 10:11:00

you certainly ended up with a god word - I go through the same mental gymnastics every morning - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-26: 13:17:00

sorry - I meant good word - Jabberwocky, 2008-02-26: 15:54:00

Not only is it an excellent word ... it fits my mind and life to a T today ... sometimes we just have to muddle onward! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-26: 18:50:00
