words on Wednesday

Maybe I'm finally getting smarter (yeah, right)...only two words added to my journal this week. Of course, one of them came from Annie's vocabulary list, so I'm thinking that really doesn't have me looking all that smart, huh? So anyway, as usual, let me know if either of these are new to you.

*euphony-pleasant sounds, especially in writing or speech (from Annie's vocabulary list)

*calvarium-the upper domelike portion of the skull without the lower jaw or the lower jaw and the facial parts (from Kiss Me, Kill Me)

It nearly goes without saying by now that once again Jean was last week's winner. I'm willing to bet she knows both of these ones, but I'm guessing she won't be alone this week.

Actually, "calvarium" threw me this week. I must not read enough gruesome murder mysteries or true crime books. :-) I'm also married to one physicist and mother to another, so it's not a word that comes up in conversation around here as it might in your house.

I didn't know euphony, per se, but I do know cacaphony & so I was able to surmise that euphony would be pleasant. =) never heard the other one before.

Thanks for sharing, Debi! I've decided to play as well. :P

Darn, I didn't know either of these. Dumb and dumber :(
