    Otiose and Odious.

    I dig 'o' words. Omniscience, something I kinda wish I had. Omnipotence, something everyone would like to have. Oddity, as in space oddity, the title of a song that best describes my first impressions with a lot of people...ominous, ocular, ode, etc...

    Bubbly!

    I liked it when I was younger and recently read a book where everything cool was described as 'Bubbly'! So, it is my favourite at the moment. But, you have to say it in a Welsh accent or it doesn't have the same effect haha

    Perplexing, Aren't They?

    I love big words that make people blink and ask what I meant.  I recently used both the words "petulant" and "churlish" in a single conversation.  (both mean bratty or obnoxious) I am also fond of "irksome" (annoying), "peculiar"...
