Words, Words, Words!

I love words. All kinds of words. I have been reading since I was about five years old and have NO memory of not having a book I am currently reading. My recreational reading was severely impacted when I was in college. But no fears, it bounced right back as soon as I was done. One of Pygmy Child's roommates a few years ago gave me the GRE (the test to get into graduate school) vocabulary test and was quite impressed when I passed without having to study. It is a shame that my vocabulary and reading skills have done little to improve my very poor spelling skills.
I love the spoken word too! If any of you have actually had a chance to speak with me, you will know I am not exaggerating when I say I love to talk!
Words are amazing, words are awesome. Playing with words is even better. I have a really fun word thing to share with you called a wordle. Described as a "word cloud" you can put your own blog, your own words, or other words that mean something to you and watch it grow into a piece of visually appealing art.
I made this one for my feelings about blogging: Blogging

And I made this one of parts of Obama's acceptance speech: Acceptance Speech
Go on, go play with words. Serious words, words that speak your heart, words that make you laugh, words that make you cry. Words that make you angry, words that lift you up. Please, if you wish to share, put your link in your comments and I will link them upfront later. Go on, you know you want to!

Speaking of words, your word verifier says scone. Yummy, makes me think of Doug and Emmy's. Too bad they aren't open this late.

Teresa said...

My kids are being really noisy right now. I'm too discombobulated to think of a good word to share.

Amber said...

Wait- you like to talk? Really? I'd never have guessed.

(My favorite words are sarcastic).
