By the Letter


Mail’s in!

In celebration of the moving I wanted to have a housewarming party for M3. Alas, before I can just throw a meet and greet, I need to take care of a bit of business which happened the day before the move. The mail has yet to be all forwarded, but I did get this one.

Mystery Coach and I had been discussing her new job when she popped up her newest award…which, like the sucker I am, I fell headlong into with no chance at crawfishing away. So, with no further ado, here is my version of the ABC Award.

The Rules

1. Add the logo.

2. Share something about yourself.

3. Go through the alphabet describing yourself.

4. Pass the award on to deserving bloggers.


My current frustration level with liars and thieves is at a lifetime high.


Mystery Coach thought this award show would be a hoot based on the number of drawn out letters in her response and her pointing out I “have quite the vocabulary”. If you need to figure out what some of them mean, by all means, consult my go-to wordsmith Merriam Webster.

A ~ Amphibious

B ~ Bullheaded

C ~ Contrary

D ~ Determined

E ~ Erudite

F ~ Forward

G ~ Genteel

H ~ Hostile

I ~ Independent

J ~ Jocoserious

K ~ Knackish

L ~ Lusory

M ~ Mythoclast

N ~ Natural

O ~ Obfuscating

P ~ Philalethist

Q ~ Quesited

R ~ Raucous

S ~ Subversive

T ~ Tiring

U ~ Unconvinced

V ~ Vilified

W ~ Wicked

X ~ Xanthous

Y ~ Yeasty

Z ~ Zendik

I promise they probably do not mean what you first suspect they do. If you run into a problem with Webster telling you you have to have a subscription to the unabridged version, just comment, and I will define.

It seems Merriam is now segregating the good words out of the dictionary again. Another step in dumbing down the planet, but that is a horse of another color set to pull a post before too much longer.


If left to my own devices, I would like nominate 26 bloggers. Instead, I am going to hold back a bit of knowledge about what the next three days holds and nominate six.
