This is genius! Honestly. I could not stop laughing as I read. You have talent, definitely. The Paedophilia part made me laugh the most.

I shall use some of my favorite words to describe this: It is lovely and enthralling. I in no way berate you for this shininess.
Ah yes, the meaning of the word shiny... *ahem* A person, place, thing or idea that is so fabulous and wonderful (I'll just stop with those words now...I could go on and on) that you can't think of a word to describe it.
There is also the suffix -nisted (or any jumble of them really with this attached at the end), which is used to emphasize a word. For example, "That was lovelyfulnisted."
Well...to keep from going on to much longer, I bid you adieu!
Oh yes, THANK YOU for the reviews!

Now that I have learned it, I can share with you the adjective that I think describes your writing perfectly: scintillating. I am having trouble refraining from placing you on my Favorites.

You should add phantasmagoria, a truly scintillating word meaning a group of seemingly unconnected images with a common theme (ish...as close as I can get without looking it up) Interesting point with paedophilia...

EXCELLENT! And I would see no point in any floccinaucinihilipilification towards this piece! Wonderful.

lmfao...piece of pure brilliance...
On the subject of word corrution...
If you are not crazy you are sane...yes?

So, why insanity for crazy...
Should it not be outsanity...yes?

| INTP chapter 1 . 12/30/2004
"Ped" or "pedo" is a Greek root for child. But the whole word corruption idea was hilarious.
| Suicidal Skies chapter 1 . 12/25/2004

| The Random Witness chapter 1 . 12/17/2004
That was Enigmatically, interesting, entertain-able information and speaking of words let me enunciate that the "sixth sick sheikh's sixth sheep's sick" is said to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language. (",) TRW

I laughed, I cried, okay, mostly I smiled a bit as I'm reading at work. Lovely little vignette of your relationship with some pleasant words. Combining real and made-up words-and then being angered at the "corruption" of a piece of vocabulary-really illustrates that you live within and among your vocabulary and have ceased to view it objectively. Did you mean to say this? I don't know.
I like your idea postmodern dictionary, and what I mean by that is that instead of being obstinant and organizing your favorite words by some order that is decidedly not the dictionary order, you present them to us in a chain of eymological consciousness that makes us wonder not only what word is coming up next, but also how you will interpret it and how your interpretation compares with our own.
P.S. Have you heard about the Adobe Bookshop in California and how some artist organized all the books by color to make a rainbow of books (he called it a spectrum, but I think that's too rigid)? There are pictures on the NPR website if you'd like to see.
