Vocabulary with Kim

Kim taught me a word she invented which I think is quite delightful. Mangry. It's a cross between mad and angry. Say it out loud with me... Mangry. Isn't that lovely? Let's all add it to our Word spellchecker.

On another word related note. Kim also told me that Will Ferrell popularized the term ginormous. When I started hearing that word being used by people other than my friends, I as a little put out. I had been using it so long, I felt that I had somehow invented it. But Kim insists that the man who brought us Frank the Tank is the true wordsmith...and I quote, "It's a word now. Webster put it in his diary." Well if it's in Webster's Diary, it must be a word. Hearts, Kim!
