burst-so fun to say, as long as you don't make it awkward
compact-if you've read "Matched" by Alli Condie then you understand
fabulous-comes from "fable." So something that's so crazy/wonderful/awesome that it could only come from a fable? It's fabulous!
fancy-such a tacky, adorable word
fastpass-Disneyland made a great invention
feisty-note how it breaks the i-before-e "rule." Such a rebel.
hope-it's a beautiful thing
keratin-because I write about hair all day, I've grown fond of this word
lemonade-it's delicious, people!
lilliputian-means "small." Comes from Gulliver's Travels. You know the little people who bind him up? They were from the island of Lilliput. Cool, huh?
lista/o-OK, so this isn't English. It means "ready," but seems to embody the meaning better than "ready."
mallow-when you say this word, you kind of make the same motions with your mouth as you do when you eat a marshmallow. You just mouthed "mallow" didn't you...
olive-this is one of my favorite colors right now, and it's one of my favorite foods
passion-because that's what makes the world go 'round
struck-again, it sounds like what it means, so it rocks.
ubiquitous-means "everywhere" but isn't everywhere
vibrant-because vibrant colors are the best colors sometimes
vicious-because it sounds like what it means
violet-another color word, that is also a lovely object (see "olive")
On an unrelated note, Sam and I played Jenga the other night. We are super competitive at this game. I still can't believe I lost. But whatever.
