My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Thesaurus Thursday, Answers, Winners, and Words

For the foreseeable future. I will tell the week's winners in the next week's Thursday post. So you're gonna get winners from last week and words to ponder for this week at the same time. You're also gonna get a whole, entire week to come up with your definitions, so should you be having a harsh weekend you can jump in later. I shall also post-date this post so that it'll stay at the top so folks won't forget to come by and give us a guess! (once I figure out how to do that, seems blogger's gone and made improvements...I was just getting used to the lack of improvements myself!

So Don't Forget To Scroll Down For Newer Posts!

Just in case this is your first time by here on a Thesaurus Thursday, the "rules" of Thesaurus Thursday are as follows:

First and foremost, leave as many funny definitions for either word (or both) as you can think up in the comments!! The ones that make me laugh the hardest will be given the Silly Goose Award.

Last week's Silly Goose Winners are:

Diane J
Katabasis: The foundation of that sailing vessel known as a katamaran.

Pinky
Keck: a mixing of 'heck' and 'crap'
ex. Oh keck! Another huge mess to clean up!



Next, if you know (or think you know) the true definitions without looking them up then be sure and leave those in the comments too!! All definitions that are correct (or close enough for government work and Mighty Mom) will win the Smarty Pants Award!

Official Definitions:

Plaudit--I think it's praise, or a compliment, right?
