That's a fun spelling! I have seen that before as I recall.

I lost my fun words on my lp - I'll get back to you tomorrow. How's Norway?

What did you do today?

I love jejune! That's a fun word to say. And the first thing that came to my mind is the June bugs we get every spring. Jejune bugs hang around our porch lights and sometime smack me in the head. (Yes, I know that's the wrong definition, but it was fun to say out loud.) jejune jejune jejune!

What?? Jejune means dull or insipid?

Hmmm... now that I think about it, I've only ever heard it spoken by someone with a French accent, and they usually were referring to someone they didn't think very well of.

It is a fun sounding word though wink

Mona, I found this after a Google Search - It said it was mid 18th century English and that it was a term from the two words ragman roll which meant that it was paper or a document that had a list of offenses. I will tell you the truth, I have said this word, but had no idea how to spell it. And, I believe I have used it wrong. I think I have used it when I was trying to explain or say there was a crazy situation. I will stop rambling now.

Shenanigans

A delightful word, though it means mischief, of just a childish sort or purposeful deception.

I know I used to get into a lot of shenanigans and I do fear it hasn't stopped yet, just taken different form than when I was younger. smile

Jana - what a great way to view shenanigans. Our younger shenanigans, and now, our adult shenanigans! Does crawling around on the floor with my dogs count as shenanigans. Is that too tame?
