Welcome to Thesaurus Thursday, 2009.
This game has brought me great joy and taught me many new words! I'm glad to continue it into this new year. Welcome to all newcomers!! Take a minute and peruse our "game rules" here, then come back to this post and join in for big fun and enormous laughs!
Are you ready??
Last week's official definitions were:
mydriasis - excessive dilatation of the pupil of the eye, as the result of disease, drugs, or the like.
muzzy - 1) confused; muddled. 2) dull; mentally hazy
ie, ME for the last week!!
Congrats to Smarty Pants Henrietta and Lori!
Lori in South Dakota said...
muzzy--how I feel in the morning before a pot of coffee, especially if I've been out the night before.
Muzzy, lovely old English word, another of my mother's favorites. Probably the closest thing in the modern day USA is fibro 'brain fog'. Very common 'morning after the night before' syndrome also found in medical interns after a tough rotation.
Congrats to these Silly Geese:
AZ, who frequently hides in the weeds, (you need to start a blog!) and Airborne Poppa aka Pops. They win for having the absolute SILLIEST comment conversation this blog's seen in awhile!! love it.
Mydriasis: This is easy, "mydriasis" is a medical term to describe the condition of buttocks of furnace room workers, as in "Jeebus, can you get me some lotion for bottom I have terminal mydriasis!"
AZ stole my idea on midryass. I am protesting! Technical Foul, Flag on the play!
I so upset I am just wuzzy
ABNPOPPA sorry, but I visited your blog and noticed your from the Midwest, I on the other hand live in Mydriasis Central aka Arizona. I lived through our infamous 122 degree day, I know mydriasis first hand, I lived through it! :0)
Thanks! y'all cracked me up!!
The words for this week are:
For those of you who are new this year, all words and definitions come from my 1992 Random House Webster's College Dictionary. I do not pick proper nouns or words that I know the meaning of.
For all winners, the Awards will continue to be found on my sidebar to pick up at your leisure.
Now don't forget to leave your comments for the new words!
