  1. Oh, I've met some fulsome guys in my day. That's a great word - hopefully I can remember it.

  3. Hi Mary Ann,

    Some great classical words this week, from a legend of a book.

    Is it possible to use all three terms to describe the one single man do you think? I can think of several candidates off the top of my head!!!

    None of the words were new to me, but I just love the word 'hackneyed'

  5. Quixotic is one of my favorite words. I believe it is derived from Don Quixote. I used to love this word when I was angsty teenager writing bad poetry :)
