Schadenfreude! Wonderful word for my favorite emotion!

How about sepulchral, imbecile, ignoramus, diffident, dissident, passive-aggressive, frotterism, ailurophile...

Ana said...

I don't know the last two! This is great! Do tell! Or must I do some legwork?

Grumpy Guy said...

Onanism!

Ana said...

Oh my god! I was just thinking about that word! I'm serious!

Plankton, Cock a hoop, Bumble Bee, Spatula, Persepolis, ecstasy, Modus Operandi, Cookie...

Ana said...

Yay! You visited! Any thoughts? I was just telling grumpy guy about your book. I think he should definitely buy it!

Spatula? Seriously?

Did I poo poo any of your word choices? What are you the Hoy Paloy?
;)

Grumpy Guy said...

How about copraphilia, copraphage, fecalith?

Ana said...

No, you didn't -- but then again, I didn't pick a kitchen utensil as a word, although as you know, I think it would make a lovely name for a girl. I love Cock a hoop!

Ana said...

Grumpy! Where are you getting these?! Damn, I don't even know where to start with those! Now my battery is dying and I won't have time to look them up!
