Word of the Day!

Post by De'Ryanna Aybara on Fri Aug 14, 2009 3:49 pm


I like words and learning new words is something that can help to enhance our role-playing experience and 'broaden our horizons'. Therefore, I thought to implement 'The Word of the Day'. Check for new word (hopefully) everyday!


Celerity: (suh-LAIR-uh-tee), noun:
1. Rapidity of motion or action; quickness; swiftness.

See, this is so cool...I used to do those It Pays To Enrich Your Word Power deals in Reader's Digest, so new words are fun. And yes, we should steal interlard. Made me think of Grandma's biscuits when I saw the word, though. Who said Grandmother's had to cook healthy!

As for hugger-mugger, I woulda thought that was somebody that swiped hugs. "Dude, don't be a hugger-mugger, she was gonna hug me!" ^_^
