Real citation: "absolutely mortified, but not ready for embalmitude"

Made-up citation: "I've seen Sonic Youth 12 times and love them deeply, but even I thought they might be ready for embalmitude. Yet their new CD is frisky as a kitty on a catnip-and-crack bender."

Hey, I wanted to say that I found your site from another blogger (Raging Red) and I love it! I just started blogging recently and I had initially thought about trying to do a site like yours and was still thinking about starting up a second blog when I found this one!

I'm an attorney and a logophile so I tend to get caught up by words. I write down great words or funky definitiions that I come across and just keep them hanging around on my computer or my palm pilot.

I've only gone through a few of your archived pages but I've been liking it and hope that you keep it up. I really miss the daily emails that I used to get from Word Spy and I tend to forget to go there on a daily basis so I miss out on a lot of good stuff. The other daily word emails pale in comparrison to the old ones from WordSpy.

I've linked to your blog (hope you don't mind) and plan to visit you regularly to see what you're writing about. Thanks again!
