January Word Challenge

You people have such boring vocabularies, I can't stand it. I am instituting monthly Angry Jess Word Challenges.

Okay, maybe not monthly. More like whenever I damn well feel you need it. Which might be daily if I could be bothered to think about it that often. Given the demands upon my time and person, that is unlikely. So we'll try monthlies and see how they flow.

Yes, that's a period reference. Deal with it.

Anyway, here's the deal: use the five chosen words correctly in sentences and in context in your posts on the Playthings Message Forum, and you'll get a special shout-out from me. No throwing random words around like peanuts on a barroom floor, you swine. Correctly and in context, or not at all. The words don't have to be in one single post, just all five used by you within a month's time. Prefixes and suffixes used appropriately are permissible. Also, no being cutesy doing cyber-waves and saying "see, AJ, I used a word!" Just use the damn word. Be natural about it.

January's Word Challenges:

Look up the meanings on your own. I'm not your teacher.

Now get busy. January is nearly half over.

  1. This my kind of challenge. Of course, my husband and I have a running game where we award each other points for managing to use non-run-of-the-mill words in daily conversation, so this is right up my alley. (I got 5 points this morning for "perspicacity." He got 2 points yesterday for "protagonist." I am the current overall leader and it will stay that way if it kills me.)

    I should be able to do this in 15 days...
