The Vocabulary Building Project!

OK, so there is this new bloghop that has been instigated (Vocabulary Building Project) by three blogging friends, Texas, Jet and Savannah. Here is the badge:


In it we are supposed to use 2 or 3 words or expressions that we don't often use! Now you will realise straight away that this might be a little difficult for Austin, as he is a complete logophile and a bit of a big head wordsmith extraordinaire (VBP en Francais just to be flash!). So what to do? Are there any words he hasn't used? Over to you, Austin.

Austin: I think I have already used every word that is known to cat!

Staff: Hmmm! A bit of a conundrum (VBP)

Austin: Well you've used three words already!!!

Staff: Indeed! That is serendipitous (VBP)

Austin: There you go. Number four >^,.^<

Staff: But it is supposed to be you that uses the new words!

Austin: Ahem! I am Dr Austin Tuxedo, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Mog!!!!!!

Staff: Of course! Sorry ;)




pilgrim, (from pill-grim) - yes it is grim having a pill forced down one's oesophagus (VBP) ;)




NB from editor. Being techy illiterate, we have no idea whether we have done it right? But I think if you click on the doodad (VBP) above, it will take you somewhere!!

Everything else looks great! And thanks ever so much for giving a try, come back and do it again anytime. Mom and I are also still working on our tech technique MOL

    ANd yes, it's indeed a VERY grim time when a human dares to attempt to *ahem* PILL us.

    ReplyDelete
  28. *snicker* We can't exactly USE your new word over here, since it's so dry. We're rather dry-grass bored at the moment (MOL!)

  30. My Human has been a total FAIL at the whole VBP dealio which is super-embarrassing because she's an English Teacher and all and, shoot! She doesn't even know how to *DO* a freaking Blog Hop and she thought she had it figured out one day but then she thinks she was wrong.
    Sigh.

  31. We love your definition of pill-grim!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  32. Dear Austin and Staff,

    Please do not teach us the wrong definition. We have great respect for your word of the day segment and we would appreciate it if you take our learning zeal seriously.

    Huggies and Cheese,

    Haopee

    P.S. I am not stupid so I can tell you right now that your meaning of pilgrim is incorrect. :P

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wow, what a handsome graduate you are sweet Austin! Hugs and nose kisses

    ReplyDelete
  34. Austin, we were wondering what the VBP was..now, we know! What a clever idea, since we always like your definitions.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Austin, Sassy here. Today on my blog, I had to show Callie who is a truly handsome Tuxie!

    ReplyDelete
  36. We hope you didn't get one a them nasty emails from me, Buddy! My email gotted hacked, just like my Twitter did last week. Do you think I might have a stalker??? That would be kind of exciting.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Those words are above my head! Now about that pilgrim word... it can be pretty grim for the human too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Austin you look so cool in your Professor hat !

    ReplyDelete
  39. There is only one being in the known universe that could look good in a mortarboard. That being is Austin. Pulchritudinous. What? I use that word every day.

  40. Austin,
    This is the funniest (and I mean it as a compliment!) VBP post I have read so far! Thank you for pawticipating! And yes, you did everything right. You are purrfect!
    Purrs

    P.S.: I apologize on behalf of my human for my intermittent (VBP) visits and comments. She always has something else to do!
