i just know that i'm harder to console

I'm working on "The Deeps of the Sky" tonight, and generating a regular festival of Words Word Don't Know:

luminesced, tropopause, sheeny, thicks, unnavigable, dartlike,

Meanwhile, I had a little argument with myself on twitter as to whether I should use some modestly bogus science to create a cool special effect. I went with it. ;-) Now I'm stopping because I have to figure out how the protagonist intervenes to stop the Bad Thing from happening, or how he mops up afterward...

Oh, I might have just done so. Woot!

sheeny

1. the posh pronunciation of shiny
2. shiny and then some!
Word needs to learn more words, definitely.
Word's glossary is "one size fits all," tailored to fit the vocabulary of the average user, and it makes "iffy" assumptions like the assumption that most people know that the formation of a simple plural does not involve an apostrophe. As we all know, one size does not fit all and you are not the average user. That is why bog made Dictionary.com, Memidex.com, and the OED.
Those are nice words. Luminesced, and other forms of luminesce, I probably use too often...obsessed with light.
