Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Alternatives for Exciting

Alternatives is a recurring post in which I give synonyms for an over used word. Click on the tab "Over Used Words" for a "complete" list of over used words.

Today's word is: - Get codes for Facebook, Hi5, MySpace and more 

I chose the word exciting because for the past month or so I've been saying, "I'm so excited!" Or, "It's going to be so exciting!" Or variations on that theme. If you want to know why I've been SO EXCITED you'll have to check out my personal Facebook page.

Maybe now I can say,  "It's mind-blowing!"

  2. Whoever thought that a simple word could hold so many intimations?! Holland is so lovely.

  3. I was very excited to see so many interesting words, thank you for sharing them.
    The video of Holland is far-out (I’ve never used that expression in my life – but maybe I will now!)
