(AT&T struck again. . .sorry this post is late!)

You are expecting the new word for today, aren’t you, my Gentle Readers.  You will have to wait until next week for that one, because I decided that a review was necessary.  It is important that you keep these words in your mind, so they can be pulled up in a moment’s notice, or even just as an exercise in your palladian skills.  I did this for you several weeks ago for the words taught up to that point.  I was kind then.  I am going to truly test your mettle today, by listing the words in alphabetical order, but with no definitions.  (And I am not engaging in any paltery – I will brook not a single quatch on the matter.)

As a special treat, next week’s word is hidden in this post.  So what will the next word be?  Remember, I do not always post the new words in alphabetical order!  First one to e-mail* me with the correct word wins a blog mention – right here on my blog!!!!  Is that a magnality, or what!?! What a prize!  I mean – you will be mentioned on the world’s most widely read blog.**  Can’t get any better than that!  Think of the readership you will gain – can’t you see all those hits coming?  Ah!  Popularity in the blogosphere – folks, there ain’t nothing else like it!  Start perusing this post. The winner could be you!

Please do not put your guess in the comment section. Now that I think of it, that probably won’t make any difference, but just play along, OK?

I look forward to getting a whole passel of entries!  Until then, I wish you all enough. . .
