Thesaurus Thursday: "Effrontery."

Hi again!  Today's word is "effrontery," a noun meaning bold impertinence or insolence.

She had the effrontery to challenge her grade by saying, "I didn't study for the test, so it was not a fair assessment of my intelligence."

Sheer effrontery.

Thesaurus... uh... Thursday, right?: "Jentacular."

Today's (well, yesterday's :-) ) word is "jentacular," an adjective meaning of or related to breakfast in the early morning.  It is an obsolete word and so rarely used, but it does sound good, doesn't it?

While eggs and bacon can be eaten at any time during the day, they are traditionally jentacular foods.

Just think: chocolate chip pancakes are spectacular. 
Although they would also be good for lunch... or dinner... or a snack...

Thesaurus Thursday: "Gobbledygook."/Blog Notes

Hi everyone!  Today's word is "gobbledygook," a noun meaning meaningless or nonsensical language.

I would have posted more over the last two weeks, but there was so much going on that I was afraid my posts would either be banal or full of gobbledygook.

(I decided to make "gobbledygook" today's word
because I'm tempted to buy this book.)

Blog Notes: I had planned this week to restart doing weekly "big" posts with Thesaurus posts in between.  When I stopped to consider it, however, I realized that from October through December every year, my life is put on "all systems go." So major updates might not happen exactly how I would like, although I will try to keep up with Thesaurus Thursdays.

Also, this month a group of bloggers has decided to have a "redefining sexy" theme that I wanted to be a part of, so a post will definitely be up in mid- to late- October.  I will try to link to all of the other bloggers' posts in that one as well!
