I love scuttlebutt and persnickety! I would add 'gob-smacked' 'verklempt' and 'rococo' .

irishoma said...

These Friday's Top Ten lists are so much fun!

L.G.Smith said...

I like saying chimichanga, especially to a waiter. :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Awesome words!

Laura Eno said...

Great list! I tend to use "thingy" a lot, especially to describe any mechanical object/filler for the lost word that fell into the abyss of my mind.

Linda Kage said...

OMG! Chimichanga reminds me of that episode of Two and a Half Men where Alan's second wife kept saying chimichanga because she liked the way it sounded!

Too good. Great words.

Linda G. said...

Oh, those are great! I also like "defenestrate." Both saying it, and the definition ("to throw something or someone out of a window").

Journaling Woman said...

Your #1 is my favorite too!!!

Savannah said...

I like "shenanigans" myself. Super-fun post Carol!

I've got an award for you at my blog, stop by when you can :)

Ciara said...

I'm not sure I can say some of these. LOL

Carol Kilgore said...

Jan - Those are fun words, too.

Donna - I'm glad you enjoy them :)

L.G. - Yeah!

Clarissa - Thanks.

Laura - Thingy is my word of choice for those words, too.

BECKY said...

Carol, I love all the words. And the minute I read "chimichanga", I too thought of the Two and a Half Men episode! The character of Kandi was hilarious! Wish she was still on the show!

I also like shenanigans and I say "thingy" all the time!

Great, fun post!

VR Barkowski said...

I love Lilliputian. Seriously. I try to use it in every piece I write and make it flow. Okay, so I'm weird.

Have a great weekend!

Talei said...

Oh Soliloguy - my fav word EVER. I am in love with it, you know. ;_) Also, your #2 has me wavering...

Have a lovely weekend! x

Carol Kilgore said...

Linda K. - Yes! Love that show.

Linda G. - Another fun word. Unless you're the person being thrown :)

Teresa - Don't try to say it after a couple glasses of wine :)

Savannah - I like that word, too! Thanks for the award. I'll be by a little later today.

Ciara - Sure you can. Just not after wine - LOL

Arlee Bird said...

I like persnickety as well. Titillate is another good one.

Talli Roland said...

Love 'scuttlebutt'! Always have, always will.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Kimberly Krey said...

Number four is the funnest. To eat. Yum! :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Becky - I can't wait to see the new direction 2-1/2 will take. And another fun word.

VR - Your signature word :)

Talei - Love is nice. Mr. Snuffleupagus says so.

Arlee - Cool. I love more fun words!

Talli - Me, too :)

Kimberly - Yes! Welcome to the Tiki Hut. Thanks for commenting and following :)

Maryann Miller said...

Enjoyed your top ten, Carol, as well as ones shared in the comments. There are a few politicians I'd like to defenestrate. That may well become my favorite word for the day.

Mason Canyon said...

Great list. My favorite two would be persnickety and doppelganger. Have a great weekend. Stay cool.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Antidisestablishmentarianism! Drives my wife nuts that I can both say it and spell it.

Elspeth Antonelli said...

Excellent words, Carol! Personally, I'm rather fond of akimbo.

The Golden Eagle said...

Deoxyribonucleic. :)

LOL. I'm going to be saying Mr. Aloysius Snuffleupagus all day now . . .

Kendal said...

Lilliputian is an awesome word. And we're actually having chimichangas for dinner :) Have a great weekend!

Kris Yankee said...

Wonderful words! Nice to meet you.

Carol Kilgore said...

Maryann - Behave. I don't want to see you on the news :)

Mason - You stay cool, too.

Alex - I wondered who would bring up that word.

Elspeth - I like that word, too.

Golden Eagle - OK...I had to look it up. No wonder most of us call it by a much more common name. Good one!

Kendal - Ha! A two-fer :)

Kris - Same here. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Lady Gwen said...

Very fun words - thanks for sharing!

Lydia K said...

You taught me a new word! Flibbertigibbet. Did I spell that right?

Carol Kilgore said...

Lady Gwen - My pleasure.

Lydia - I think so :)

J.L. Campbell said...

Your fun word brings back the words of the song, which I learnt in primary school. :) Have a wonderful weekend!

lbdiamond said...

These are great words!!!

Theresa Milstein said...

You have some of my favorite words here! But I don't know #2.

Carol Kilgore said...

J.L. - Cool :)

Laura - Glad you like.

Theresa - Snuffy on Sesame Street.

Samantha Sotto said...

Persnickety for the win! :)

Clara Gillow Clark said...

I love your word lists! I love words. Persnickety would be a great name for a character.

Carol Kilgore said...

Samantha - I need to go find a blue ribbon :)

Clara - Thanks. I love words, too. Persnickety would be perfect in a kid's book. Do it!

Shirley said...

I'm always a day late and a dollar short on checking the blog. I love the Friday Top Tens, though, so better late than never.

I'm IMPRESSED that you actually spelled the number #1 fun word. My hat's off to you.

I also like yepadoodle.

Carol Kilgore said...

Confession time...I had to look it up. I never heard yepadoodle. But I like it :)

LR said...

Scuttlebutt is cute. :)

I just returned from Ireland and some of the town names made me laugh too. "Ballybunion" and "Ballysally" etc.

Carol Kilgore said...

LR - Those names are funny to my ears, too.

Randy said...

Don't ask why, but what immediately came to mind is BRIDGE. The other is SLUSH. (Maybe because one is kinda hard and abrupt sounding and the other is soft and mushy?) As a kid, I would proudly say antidisestablishmentarianism when prompted. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

I like slush :)
