I chose prolificlivious because it sounds delicious and rhymes with lascivious. it's also fun to type - p-r-o-l-i-f-i-c-l-i-v-i-o-u-s!


But if I'm honest, my secret favourite is really prolix. I should have voted for that. REDO!

I know! Prolificlivious has just this totally sexy cadence. But I finally went for the one that made me laugh hardest: unfinnish.

It seems that my friends think I'm overly verbose! Please do join me in my awed shocked lengthy commentary on this! ;)

(see, I'm glad not to be alone, it's good to have friends with whom i can commiserate on my bitter battle bereft of brevity but full of pretty sounds O:> )

A surfeit of words

Allow me to pointedly refer my briefer colleagues towards that phonetically nonsensical oracle indispensable Tristan Tzara, Dadaist. Howl.

Oooo, chills, like Jeanette Winterson's Passion ran up and down my spine.

(Coat mended, just one more minute on the internet, one more minutes, three more minutes, what a lovely addiction, my longing for inspiration and engaging conversations ... iTunes playing "Suddenly I See" by KT Tunstall and it's utterly poignant)

Oh and Jeannette Winterson is a literary goddess. Above her, there is no other. I am ruined. Delightfully.

good gods this is the most inspiration information rich bit of density, i can only read three sentences before i jump somewhere else and am awed again. it is sensical! it is sense! so i say!

If I continue to do something, it is because it amuses me, or rather because I have a need for activity which I use up and satisfy wherever I can.

the writer is entitled to his boomboom: the satisfaction of pathological curiosity; a private bell for inexplicable needs; a bath

words for weeping with joy.

it seems this long quiet and hermitage and rest has done its job ... i'm back. until the next cavernous interlude.

Perhaps "prolificlivical"?

Ah. Dragostea Din Tei was my favorite song of that summer (is it really so long ago?).

The Numa guy is this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60og9gwKh1o
