^^ hehe yesterday I used Turgid as my word of the day that I send to my current boss and my former boss, but with a different definition!

(copied from my sent email)
Turgid \tur-jed\
1 : being in a state of distension : swollen, tumid : exhibiting turgor
2 : excessively embellished in style or language : bombastic, pompous

Without TRBL to keep him in line on a daily basis, Boss's (old exec I temped for for a few weeks) head was becoming quite turgid, he not even deigning to wave or say hello to his former assistant. Thus making her weep piteously at her desk for the 2nd day in a row.

Chicanery \shih-KAY-nuh-ree\
1 : deception by artful subterfuge or sophistry : trickery
2 : a piece of sharp practice (as at law) : trick

Although she knows makeup companies employ chicanery in their advertising, TRBL still finds beauty products irrisistible.

The latest discussion regarding hair types turned into quillets on subtypes, porosity, and dew points.

(I think that works, but maybe someone with a stronger grasp on word usage will pipe in)

SALACIOUS (suh-LAY-shuhs)
Relating to sex or lust, usually in excess or in an offensive manner; sexual

I can spend hours reading salacious romance novels.

Quiescent [kwee-es-uhnt, kwahy-] - inactive, still

When I was a kid, fudgsicles and creamsicles always had on the label: "a quiescently frozen confection"

Yum!

Bespoke

dealing in or producing custom-made articles

It was a shame when Mr. Hamilton grew too fat for his handsome bespoke suit.

CONSONANT (KON-suh-nuhnt)
In agreement; consistent; harmonious

Claudine's strange behavior is consonant with her usual character.

Pinchbeck \PINCH-bek\
1 : Made of an alloy of copper and zinc used especially to imitate gold in jewelry
2 : counterfeit or spurious

Although she loved the earrings she recieved, she discovered they were pinchbeck and not 18k as he had said.
