who would have guessed there was such a word!!!!

Yes, all sorts of 'lovelies' are in bloom here, the camelia by the back door, daffodils, tulips and crocus(i) grace just about every little corner and when the sun is shining upon it all, it is delicious. There is no other word that works to describe it all, for after a long winter, seeing a little bit of colour just makes you hungry for more.....Greed, of the good sort.

OK, that's gotta be Brillo Man, the Wordmeister!! Here's a sniglet I made up a while back: zitmetrical. This condition occurs when you have a zit on exactly the same place on both sides of your face.

Brillo Man, you have entirely too much time on your hands. I'm going to have to find something for you to do...
