I will be back with a new series in the Autumn

I am going to be away for a few days, and felt that it behoved me to select a few carefully chosen words to last you until my return.

engendered
marsupial
preposition
corrosion
thorax
trombone
strolling
pinch
Maudling

Ahem. It is the autumn. Since Saturday, I believe.

And why does Maudlin start with a capital, when none of the others do? Is it to remind us of Reggie?

Oh, and have a nice break.

Dave said...

Ah, just gone back to the front sheet, and see it's Maudling. So ignore that paragraph.

Geoff said...

You don't want to be feeling Maudling.

Pamela said...

vicus, I shall treasure those words until you return.

ziggi said...

I thought it was actually spelt Magdalene

Carmenzta said...

Vicus, come back soon. We don't have that much to do around here.

Frontier Editor said...

It must be a coincidence, but I swear that I've heard each of these words - singly or in various partial combinations - in reference to Andee McDowell since her appearance in "Sex, Lies and Videotape" in the late 1980's.

Well, maybe 'marsupial' was mentioned about her co-star, Laura San Giacomo and 'trombone' in referenece to other co-stars Peter Gallagher and James Spader. but I'm pretty sure the other words were in various direct and/or tangential reference to Ms. McDowell.

raincoaster said...

If that were the case, it would have been "Maudlin" though. Did you see her "act" in Ruby Cairo?

Frontier Editor said...

Actually, I think it was 'Maudling,' as in being somehow Maud Adams-like in some shape, form or fashion.

Cherrypie said...

Thankyou for thinking of us. It is appreciated although I would rather have had

engineered
marzipan
proposition
collaboration
thora hird
trombone
stroking
pinocchio
Madeleine Albright

Mark Gamon said...

My turn:

coddle
track
pig
cow
deer
start
stop
muddle
fumble
gruff

Don't know why I did this. It just seemed like the thing to do...

tom909 said...

I so want to write eight really bad swear words but I just love Pammy too much.
So

existence
horses
girls
computer
conciousness
sex
organic
Courtney Love

tom909 said...

Mark, the last one has to have a capital - its the rules.

Carmenzta said...

I would have liked:

pilleated
roseate
celsius
intrinsic
unconstitutional
preemptive
throbbing
couscous
George Clooney

ziggi said...

you
have
one
the
lottery
jackpot
collect
here

Cherrypie said...

I want Ziggi's words now - although I'll change the 'one' for 'won' ( same pronunciation by some of the more local types)

gautami tripathy said...

Ah well, I will let it rest.

Vicus Scurra said...

Congratulations. You have all survived my absence, and have shown signs of being able to post here without my constant supervision. This is a great step forward.
Perhaps one day, one, some or even all of you will be able to write witty and interesting posts on your own blogs. I know that must make some of you feel very nervous, but it is not as far-fetched or ridiculous as it sounds. I was like you once, honestly.

Dyna Girl said...

The Thorax...it's by Dr' Suess

MJ said...

Please note that I was unable to post in your absence without supervision.

Mark Gamon said...

Sorry Tom. I hadn't read the small print. Here's my amended list:

coddle
track
pig
cow
deer
start
stop
muddle
fumble
gruff
the Venerable Bede

Is that OK?

tom909 said...

No, not really Mark, there are too many words, and everyone else has used a capital for the first part of the last word. I'm just getting exasperated by this.

Dave said...

Pericope (not periScope)
floral
antidulivian
sock

Dave said...

I have no idea what my third word means, seems to be something my fingers made up by themselves. I meant something else entirely, but using many of the same letters, albeit in a slightly different order.

ziggi said...

correction:
won not one
Here (capitalisation of last word)

sorry

Carmenzta said...

He's back! It must be Fall!!!!

zed said...

will you post something now ? it's not up to us to keep your blog running, you grumpy sod.

Vicus Scurra said...

Zoe, I might, I might not. Depends on how I feel. I notice that you haven't been as prolific as usual lately.

tom909 said...

Welcome back Vicus old buddy. Trust you had a pleasant sojourn in the North country.
As you can see the standard of your blog has been thoroughly maintained in your absence, but yes, I am in agreement with some of the other punters - time for a new topic - I don't understanbd this word thing..

Pamela said...

Tommy my love, you deserve a big wet kiss for your restraint.

Here are my words:

ruminate
fulminate
inculcate
inchoate
and finally,
Mary Poppins

Sharon J said...

Can I do some words too, please?

vinegar
clock
wart
grandiloquent
cake
orchard
carpet
substantiate
Coronation Street

I know I asked and then did the words anyway but I was trying to be polite. Is that allowed?

Richard said...

Let's try.

thrust
splurge
crunch
flume
grind
tetrapoint
mimsy
Aravinda da Silva

tom909 said...

Pammy, my restraint has been rewarded and I am very happy - you are starting to train me - is this good or bad?
And Sharon, I'm not sure if Vicus encourages politeness on here or not but, as my mother used to say (and may still say), it doesn't cost you anything and it helps the world go round.

Mark Gamon said...

coddle
Tom, in the interests of playing fair, I've edited my list a bit. I was getting tired of a couple of the words anyway.

track
pig
cow
deer
mud
arm
Farmer George

That better be all right. I'm tired of editing. You'll notice the list is much improved, and I've included a genuine King to demonstrate my undying loyalty to the crown.

Thinking about it, perhaps I shouldn't have said that. Vicus might throw me off the site.

Mark Gamon said...

I like Richard's words best. Except tetrapoint, which is silly.

Carmenzta said...

I liked Dave's "antidulivian," whatever that means.

Richard said...

Substitute amalgam for tetrapoint then.
