Mine is shillelagh. I enjoy saying it.

My favorite use of the word was when Family Guy's Peter Griffin was told by his real father, "Aye, now I see that you are from the broth of me own stubby shillelagh!"

I use the word as often as possible.

You?

Oh, good thread, Kelly!

Mine is serendipity. When I taught second grade that was one of their new words of the day. I love the way that word sounds so upbeat, and the kids loved it too and used to repeat it a lot.

Hmmm... my favorite words change every once and a while, so I never have just one...

It would have to be either smartical or incognito. ^^ I love them both so much.

My favorite word ever? I'm not sure. For the moment it's "terrific."

Cow. I don't know why, but it's a funny word. The animal looks pretty funny, too. I wonder what aliens think if that's the first creature they see? "Oh, Nigel, this planet couldn't possibly sustain decent life: these creatures are ridiculous."

Dilligaf- I just learned it on some thread in this forum- a cookie and a rep point if anyone remembers what it stands for-:D

Labyrinth.

It's not that I like it so much, it's such an obscure word.
The strange thing is, when I see it written somewhere, I'll see it again at least ten or twelve times in the next few days.

I wonder what the Universe is trying to tell me...

Conundrum. It's just fun to say. As in, "Well, that's one hell of a conundrum."

There's a funny poem, (well, not funny, kind of corny, actually), about eggs and chickens that has the word conundrum in it.

I can't remember the poem, but the last lines go something like:

"Chickens lay eggs, and they have legs. Eggs come from chickens, but have no legs under 'em, what a conundrum."

I love words! I don't have any one favorite, but the first of my top five would be. . . (drumroll here) asshat. I first learned the word off of Bad Rpers Suck on LJ.

I also like the word apple. When I'm trying to annoy people, I use the word repeatedly: "Apple fritter, apple butter, applesauce, apple shoes, apple tree, apple face. . ."
