you know what's a good word?

treacly.

it sounds like what it means, which i think is sickeningly sweet and sentimental.

and it even looks like molasses dripping off the edge of the table.

My current favourite is less obscure.

"Chutzpah"... if only for the way it's pronounced.

You gotta love "snarky." Meaning irritable or short-tempered.

It's so spunky and cute. Almost as cute as grumpy

I’ve always like anachronism. It’s painfully hard to work into a conversation though…

Hm. I think I'll have to go with girlspit on this one, "snarky" is not only a fun word, but also easy to slip into conversation.

and it brings to mind a very specific picture, too. yeah, i've known some major snarks in my time. (is that proper usage?)
