Five years ago, one of the first things I ever did on Facebook was participate in a Group to assemble a list of The 100 Best Words Ever. It was a brilliant experience, one of the best things that ever happened on Facebook and worth a revisit: http://www.facebook.com/groups/2397168332/

A Scrabble friend sent me your Final 32 list, so I had a little fun with my reply:

Best SCRABBLE Words Ever?!

Am I betwixt and between a yokel and a nimcompoop? These “Best Words Ever” are among umpteen I’ll never remember to use on a Scrabble board, with or without any mnemonics about diphthongs or onomatopoeia.

Reading this list has certainly caused a kerfuffle in my day. But don’t think I can be hornswoggled into thinking this is some quagmire for me. I’m no xenophobe when it comes to those juggernaut tournament wordsters. They can canoodle and kowtow to each other with their sweet as nougat plays of words from akimbo to zephyr, impress with their detritus or isthmus, even eke out a win as they score big with their sphincter and phlegm.

I enjoy a good game, but I’m no wonk for words so I'll vamoose and not lollygag around here anymore. Gotta go skedaddle over to my neighbor to mooch some gherkins, then go home and dust my tchotchkes. (BTW I’m also not some rapscallion or scalawag who would ever use that f**k word, even if it were allowed on a Scrabble board!)

Great word...

I'm curious which blogging and site-building
platform you might be using? I'm new to running a
blog and have been thinking about using the Ning platform.
Do you think this is a
good foundation to start with? I would be very
grateful if I could ask you some questions through e-mail so I can learn a bit
more prior to getting started. When you have some free time, please be sure to contact me at: carineasterling@aol.
