Effulgence

Brilliance, radiant splendor :)

Thanks for looking after WFTWE for me while I was away Sis :x. I couldn't resist the temptation to log on from Florida and I was hugely impressed by the positive response you received for your first effort (and a little envious).

I was less impressed by the small number of negative comments that flowed as I thought it was only me who attracted those. Never mind though, life is full of alter kockers and they are crosses we bear for daring to stand up.

Cheers

Billy 8-{) :D

[pre][b]Alter kockers? Well you will
have to look that one up yourselves,
but Erica Jong had a handle on the genre.

"alter kockers" +erica jong" & hit
"I Feel Lucky". The answer is about
halfway down the page.

How come a word with such a nice meaning, instead brings to mind someone suffering from serious digestive problems ?:|

Nevermind, it is a nice cheerful word for an otherwise dreary winters day :)

sorry to say this Billy T but what Jen c says i first thought to!!!!!!!

and nearly fell off me chair from a laugh that turned into a coughing fit!!!

as to this i have the flu now, as a consequence have lost my voice so very difficult to answer phone or door!

so am not feeling very radiant or splendorous......

but well done BT gave me a laugh or two.

and why does it bring back memories of last weeks word and thinking about Worzel Gumidge?
maybe he had bad odour to?

could be abrand name for a new indegestion tablet or effervisor?


LOL

Well folks, you may remember

Pulchritudinous

A very early WFTWE that sounds like a description for something you scraped off the bottom of your shoe, but means:

Beautiful

I just pick 'em folks, I don't make them up. :8}

Cheers

Aww Billy, no need for the sad face :). Effulgence does sound nice when you say it (heck, at least this WFTWE is pronounceable!), it is just me and my word associations .....
remind me never to play word association games, it would be most incriminating :p

No problem Billy, it was a real honour. :-)


> I was hugely impressed by the positive response you received for your first effort (and a little envious).

Aw heck.... you know you're entitled to take 99% of the credit for that, Billy. :8} :p


> Sorry Sis, I meant well

And you did well. You can't judge things by their wrapping, it is the beauty inside that counts. :-)


> There'll be even more effulgence now that you have returned!

Absolutely! It is great to have you back again. :-)

Methinks that promiscuously speaking from a chronological point of view you are all sufferring from an over exuberance of verbosity.

How was the sun and the warmth and the relative dry in Florida Billy. But a memory by now I guess. Welcome back :)

Cheers Murray P

Well Murray, it was around 32-33 degrees C and 80% humidity, but strangely, it was more comfortable than an Auckland day! Biggest problem was walking from airconditioned areas to the outside air without auto-demisters for my glasses:- instant fog.

As for the relative dry, summer is the wet season with frequent thunderstorms and the lightning is like nothing you have ever seen before. The trailer goes up then a monstrous discharge comes down. You definitely need surge protection on all connections to your computer and a UPS to allow an orderly shutdown if (when) the power goes off.

If I have generated any business from the trip I hope to go back occasionally, but that remains to be seen. Much of what I do can be done from NZ by email etc.

Cheers
