Vocabullyishness R

Don't feel bad if you don't know the meaning of vocabullyishness. I'd tell you to look it up, but you won't find it there. Why not? Because I coined it.

Ya see, I'm sitting at work catching up on Maureen Dowd's columns in the New York Times, when to my great vexation, I stumbled upon an unfamiliar item in the lexicon - solipsism. I moved on to her next column, and there it was again, solipsism. What is the meaning of this curious word, I pondered, that it would be felicitous in two sequential columns? Extreme egocentrism. No, I'm not talking about my mother right now. It's the definition.

Do you ever discern that some writers take pleasure in bestowing words they cognize no one will comprehend? To the ambit of being loquacious? Me too. I deem this praxis to be an impudent essay to cause us sycophants to feel middling.

In other words - vocabullyishness.

Wow. You're my hero. Maybe you should write a column. I'd read it.

Thank you.

Charmaine said...

New post please. Try to focus.

You have time now. Spill it sister...tell us about your horid black hair.

okay, this post is from a woman whose sister puts up a link on her blog entitled , "My Punk Ass Sister"? I'm so confused...something tells me i'd better just turn around and walk away...

Charmaine said...

New post please.

I mean, how long does it take to post an update?

Get on it, my favorite and most intelligent baby sis.

Greying,

You are clearly not a wise man. If you make another snide remark about me or my relationship with my sister, I will happily kick your ass. Or I will find others more qualified to perform the task.

Do you have a last name?

okay, okay, okay...I know when I'm being out classed, out gunned, and out blogged. Punk Ass Sister, I apologize profusely. Charmaine, no need to plan ahead for an ass kicking: I was simply following links from blog to blog, sort of a method of trying to develop an understanding of the blogosphere. And certainly, I was born with both a first and last name...are you shopping names today?
