Annus Mirabilis.

Monday, March 11, 2013

I've blogged before about Otherwordly, a Tumblr devoted to "strange and lovely words" - and I don't often write about the same thing twice - but the feed's been so inspiring lately, I just had to share. The last two below are my favorites.



Visit Otherwordly, here. I'll warn you now - once you start scrolling, it's very difficult to stop...

Love the words you specifcally chose. Let's all pray for annus mirabilis in 2013 (especially because your new year just started)!

Oh these are just perfect! Reminds me of the book, The Meaning of Liff.

I'm so good at baltering!

What a cool list. I'm always slightly sad to see words I don't know because it means they are slipping out of our vernacular. Thanks for sharing these!

I love this Tumblr! You're so right though--it's impossible to keep scrolling once you're there!

Shoko said...

Alex, yes, I've got my fingers crossed!

Rusty, I've never heard of that - very curious now, though...

Tara, me, too :) Best balter-er ever!

I reblogged their one about balter! Such words definitely need to be used more often. I've also seen pictures of kintsukuroi on tumblr- it's beautiful.
