    I like catercorner... it's an older way of saying kitty-corner or crossways. I also like askew which isn't all that unusual (it means off-kilter), but it's fun to say.

    Askew is good, but I like "ajar" better. I used to have a friend who's car would say, "Your door is ajar," when the door wasn't properly latched or left open. It cracked me up and, when riding with her, I would always respond, "No, the door is a door." I told my friend that I didn't believe computers could talk (this was in the early 90s) and that I was certain she must have an elf or gnome living in her car dashboard.

    This got me giggling. My cousin had a Chrysler LeBaron when I was little that said this exact same thing in a really snooty voice, like we'd have to be idiots not to notice the door was open. And, our response was the same as yours. Thanks for the smile!

    One of my favorite words to use in everyday conversation would probably be frowned upon in this forum .... however, I am fond of the word

    Gunnysacker: an individual who represses and withholds all emotions until his/her "sack" is about to burst.

    I learned this in one of my favorite Interpersonal Communications classes in college.

    I saw one today that I hadn't seen for awhile "biffed". While the dictionary says it means to "hit or punch", in colloquial conversation it means to fall on your butt as a result of clumsiness. For example: "I biffed it on the newly waxed floor."

    Stumbled onto a cute word today that I'd never heard before: hobbledehoy.

    According to my dictionary, it means "a clumsy or awkward youth".

    One of P.J. Wodehouse's favorite words, particularly often used in the Jeeves & Wooster series.

    And that brings me to some of my other favorite Wodehousean words: Tinkerty Tonk - another way of saying "whatever", when making someone's displeasure known, and wotsits, a synonym for anything and everything for which the proper word has escaped you.

    I love this thread...lots of fun!

    I always enjoy words that sound exactly like their meaning, like canoodle. It means to 'kiss and cuddle armorously.' But if you didn't know what it meant, wouldn't you just know by hearing it?

    I wouldn't consider this a true onomatopoeia—if that's what you mean. Maybe the word connotes the mood/vibe more than the actual sound. I don't think I could guess what it means from the word alone.

    It may or may not be a real word, but I have found 'mouseburger' to come in handy at times. It describes a person,<snip> who isn't a go-getter, but just lets life happen, instead of taking life by the horns and enjoying the trip!
