Letter meme attack!

A DeLorean?!?
This is how it works: Comment on this entry and get a letter (if you're up to playing).

Write ten words beginning with that letter, including an explanation of what the word means to you and why.

Thanks to msanborn I got the letter "D", so here we go in no particular order:

1. Delight: If you cannot experience childlike delight, you have already died.

2. Death: The only thing that you must do yourself. You cannot avoid it, or make someone else do it.

3. Doom: A fun word to say. DOOOOOOM!

4. Daylight: The reason I have sunglasses. Although I do enjoy the feeling of sunlight on my skin.

5. Delete: The backwards backspace.

6. Dork: Whale dick1. Also: me.

7. Detritus: I try to cut off the detritus, but sometimes sentimentality gets the best of me. I'm not a full-scale hoarder by any means, but it can be difficult to get me to throw things out that I have not already decided should go.

8. Discordian: A philosophy where I don't have to take anything seriously (and if I do, I'm doing it wrong)? Precisely what my aneristic mind needs to take care of itself!

9. Diplomatic: I've been told I'm too diplomatic. Like the other day I asked a sales rep some questions. She had to put me on hold, and I apologized for the inconvenience. My dad chastized me: "It's her job!"

10. Dictionary: I almost refrained from looking in one to find the last word. Then realized that the title was enough. D'oh1!

1 Bonus D-word!!!
2 In addition, please note that the icon is a D-word!

Or somebody else said it was a pimple on a donkey's ass.
25th-Apr-2006 09:00 pm (UTC) - Re: BTW, do you want a letter? If so, it is "L"
All this time I was wrong! Dork meaning whale's penis is apparently an urban myth [1] [2]

Not really. If people think a certain word means something, and you successfully use it in discourse, then it means that. (So sayeth the descriptivists. Prescriptivists beware!)

Silly, Peter. "Icon" starts with an I.

Letter, please.
