Perfect!  
Nabbed from brithistorian:



The gloaming has always been my favorite time of day. How perfect is that?

That's why I like you. You are crepuscular!

How lame. Firefox's spell check doesn't know crepuscular! I added it.

I can't believe I don't have a grammar icon on this account.

You know, 'crepuscular' sounds like I have some sort of disease characterized by oozing sores. Not at all like what it actually means. Weird.

I can't believe I don't have a grammar icon on this account.

So you substituted a sex icon? ;)

LOLOLOL

Well, it's the only thing I like better than proper grammar! ;)

Yeah, 'crepuscular' definitely doesn't seem to fit its definition, which is part of the reason why I love it. And I've been dying to use it. It doesn't really work in pillow talk, does it? Your eyes are so crepuscular...

So you're saying I should recite comma rules in bed? ;)
Tiffany: comic ds dinosaurs & sexpiekid on February 4th, 2008 01:49 am (UTC)
Well, grammar rules don't necessarily turn me on, but bad grammar sure turns me off. ;)

You could always try. LOL

ETA: Commas can be hot!

Only you could find something like that! You crack me up!

Muah!

Ew. EwEwEw.

No, it doesn't.

Being of a medical bent, I guess you're thinking of crepitus?
seftiri: Gonzo Coolseftiri on February 4th, 2008 01:45 am (UTC)
That's a lovely word! But no, I wasn't thinking of that. I think I was thinking of a combination of words. 'Crepuscular' has the same tonal quality as 'crusty pustule', hence my 'oozing sores' reference. ;)
tulliolus: saussuretulliolus on February 4th, 2008 01:50 am (UTC)
Oh deary deary me, I deserve to be rapped soundly across the knuckles with the wooden ruler of the Grammar Nazi, for that is one dangling-ass modifier. It is of course you that are of a medical bent, not I, for indeed, how could anyone whose initials are EMH be otherwise?

Incidentally, Munroe's Rule applied to the above phrase makes for an interesting mental image.
seftiri: Liv's Girlseftiri on February 4th, 2008 01:54 am (UTC)
LOLOL Yes, that is an interesting mental image.

And as for my initials, yes. It is but one of the reasons I do not think I will be going into Emergency/Trauma nursing. I'm afraid of catching the dreaded 'nerdy nickname.' Of course, once I finish my Emergency/Trauma rotation, I could have a different viewpoint on the matter. There are so many types of nursing to choose from!
tulliolus: liontulliolus on February 4th, 2008 02:02 am (UTC)
Well, whichever path you choose, I salute you as someone who is doing something about this whole world-needing-to-be-a-better-place issue we're saddled with as peeps, instead of seeking refuge in ivory towers academic or otherwise.
seftiri: Smileseftiri on February 4th, 2008 03:18 am (UTC)
Thank you. I appreciate your support. I received so much wonderful care when I was so desperately ill and I feel very strongly that I should repay that. I have always wanted a career that helps others. I think nursing will fulfill both nicely. :)
Tiffany: other handbasketpiekid on February 4th, 2008 03:26 am (UTC)
Have I ever mentioned this? Sometimes I feel like the only person on the Earth who doesn't care to have a job that will "make a difference". What does that say about me?

;)
tulliolustulliolus on February 5th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
Well, even if I do care about this (which is only sometimes), it's only because I feel I'm falling short of the "What Would Caseybabes Do?" yardstick.
Tiffany: teh casey not brokenpiekid on February 5th, 2008 01:16 am (UTC)
Yeah, Casey does that to me too.

That it does; his rule ruined me for that 'turn of phrase'. I go right to it.
tulliolus: feettulliolus on February 4th, 2008 02:08 am (UTC)
Now we shall all be left to wonder, what exactly is an ass-modifier, and should it be allowed to dangle like that?
Tiffany: other gromit readingpiekid on February 4th, 2008 03:20 am (UTC)
Made to answer that question, I'd say it was a pan of brownies hanging from a fish pole, taunting me. And no, it shouldn't dangle, it should be eaten, posthaste.
tulliolus: feettulliolus on February 5th, 2008 12:05 am (UTC)
Ah, good. That's one less knotty problem to keep me awake nights ;)
Tiffany: pepsipiekid on February 5th, 2008 01:15 am (UTC)
Yup, it was one knotty, knotty problem. LOL j/k

Ooh, I'm nicking this quiz. Apparently, I have a split-personality time of the day. I loved it.

By the way, I think the most interesting word is prepuce. I even worked it into a real conversation once. It was a surreal moment. Defenestration is also a personal favorite. Just the idea that there's actually a specific word for throwing something or someone out of a window tickles me pink. Psycho neologism, hoo!
seftiri: DN Joyseftiri on February 4th, 2008 02:54 am (UTC)
Defenestration is one of my favorites, too. I also love the word 'inexpressible' because I love the irony of it. It is a word that describes the state of being singularly un-worded. LOL
