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 2010 #3

I just LOVE quick and easy and super cute projects! These baby blankets take about 2 hours to make each. They're soft and sweet and the perfect size and weight! Makes me feel so PRODUCTIVE!

This one's for SherryTex's January baby girl.

This one's for Jill's January baby boy.

Now, let's see, last week our words were:

chebec - A small grayish bird (Empidonax minimus) commonly inhabiting fields and groves of eastern North America. Also called least flycatcher.

cheddite –noun Chemistry .
an explosive for blasting, composed of a chlorate or perchlorate mixed with a fatty substance, as castor oil.


Winners of the Silly Goose Awards are:

Roger with: Chebec - a liberal version of Glen Beck, he's all the rage in the jungle.

and Lori with: cheddite---a religious group similar to Hutterites and Mennonites. They worship cheddar cheese, wear cheese hats, eat cheese curds, and carry a cheese slicer at all time. They milk goats to make and sell cheese.

I think attar is an incense or something similar, maybe an exotic spice.

As for busticate, silly answer: masticate is to chew something, probably to a pulp, so busticate? It's what mammography does to boobs.

Serious answer: the art of inserting oneself into a bustier.

Okay, not so serious.

Sherry said...

Awwwww. That's sweet. I'm very very touched.

Now for the serious part:

busticate --What happened to Katherine after her plastic surgery. I know, too obvious.

attar:The domain name of BP.

Thanks for being you!

busticate~ to estimate the bust size of a female. Men are especially adept at this skill.

attar~ The planet where video games were first invented. The inhabitants are known as Atari and have infected the male species of this planet with an addiction to gaming.

Lovely quilts - as always!

I'll have to think on them thar words a little bit, it's too early in the day to be creative!

ABNPOPPA said...

Busticate, It ain't a word according to my spell checker! On a side note. I can't believe Jungle Mom typed that answer! Then again, she is married to a Marine!

Attar: Very easy, Attar, what every one does when they have a flat the go get attar for their car!

C'mom MM let's have some real tough ones!
