  1. How could you *not* like the word fecund? It’s the best! Such a strong image of purity and nurturing, yet so obscenely evocative of cunt at the same time. I love it!

  2. I just saw this in my inbox and I got excited: Me me me! I wanna play! All because I can definitely answer number 1 and 2 right away… but then the others took some time…

    1. puddle
    2. Don or Dawn (because I cannot pronounce them as it turns out)
    3. Sleep
    4. Seriously? Everything.
    5. F**cking f**ck. Or f**king a**hole.
    6. Rain
    7. Pieces of Styrofoam rubbing each other gives me chest pain. For real.
    8. (Is this for real or just hypothetical?) Event planner
    9. Stripper
    10. You were a saint. He was a f**king a**hole.

  3. @squadrato All I see and hear is fecal, which makes birth seem like shit. Never thought of the cunt connection, though it’s intriguing and may make me rethink. Maybe.
    @subWOW I knew about Doug but not Dawn. Another crappy name bites the dust!
    With bonus favorite word “ping pong,” your nonsentence of the week:
    Get those parsnips away from your muthafarkingcorksucking husband, else risk pingponging your fecundity!

  4. 1. rainbow
    2. politics
    3. kindness
    4. assholery
    5. motherfucker
    6. the trickle of a mountain stream
    7. alarms and ticking of a clock
    8. civil rights advocate
    9. door to door sales
    10. She would say “So glad to meet you”

  5. @jc you turn-on and -off respectively weaken my knees and tense my every fiber. So I guess relaxing turns me on and tension turns me off. Makes sense.
    Now, on to business:
    Puffy and scratch-n-sniff stickers
    (All for you, dear Dr. Neticorn. Chee!)

  6. Nap, I’m with you on fecund. Always evokes the image of a turd.

    1. blithe
    2. cunt
    3. quiet, salty snacks, good music, booze
    4. whining
    5. fuckfuckfuckityfuck

  7. Parsnip is such a perfect little word. Brava.
    LMAO on #10.

    Btw, I LOVE that you did this. Always wondered what I might blurt out if on that show (after my nonexistent acting career). Will post responses on my blog. ;)

  8. Wow, fecund sure has a lot of other word echoes. I must say, I don’t make the association with fecal, because the pronunciation is totally different, with that long E. Feckless, on the other hand, I get.

  9. 1. What is your favorite word? bejesus, Clackamas

    2. What is your least favorite word? schedule (British pronunciation–no offense!)

  12. JC: Rainbow? You really ARE a unicorn.

    KW: #5 is what I said when I thought I broke my toe this summer. It hurt SO much. And then, after about five minutes of me repeating it, all the sudden I hear, “Wow, hon, sounds like it really hurts.” Turns out my MOTHER was in the room and heard every fbomb. I almost died of embarrassment…

  13. @Mom, PhD Totally agree on #9. Grateful for what they do but NEVER want to do it. Love #10. Ski hill, indeed. No danger to your knees, and heavenly powder. ;-)
    @jc happy to oblige. Can’t have the only unicorn I know moping about.
    @KW love #10. Blithe is divine.
    @squadrato now feckless is creeping into my top ten of faves. Why can’t I stand fecund?
    @Jen I’m gonna try goatfuck. That’s impressive. It’s too bad that your least favorite is what it is, because making the goatfuck a gerund and adding your least favorite is AWESOME as cussing goes.
    @j I’m coming over to read
    @Ink thank goodness you’re a grownup and can say as many f-words as you want. If you remember correctly, I wrote a scene just like that about ten years ago with a hip instead of a toe. Are you trying to live my fiction, dude?

  14. Wait, what? A hip instead of a toe? Did I read that?

    In any case, it really did happen this summer. I apologized to my Mom, like, a thousand times. And she was very cool about it. But I do still cringe just thinking about it. Even though I am, as you point out, a grownup — and I was not therefore grounded. ;)

  15. Ink, yup, you read it. There was no other adult in the room, but a smashed hip while sweeping that resulting in a steady stream of “fuck”s; incident figures again in the piece three times.

    Glad you weren’t grounded. Always interested how grown women and their mothers interact. Would have needed to steal that for a scene if she tried to punish you.
