That is "just because".
That is just becuase I like to form new words from other words, and make up my own!
That is just because what else is there to do at 5:30 am than geek out on words and take a vocabulary quiz because I'm a wordophile, bibliophile, book freak, word freak, ad. naus. Lewis Carole coined the term "portmanteau" in 1882 in his book Through The Looking Glass, although it originated from the "porter" who carried a Prince's "mantle" (coat), and also means a particular style of suitcase.
I like it! It sounds fantasticaliscious!
As a child, I poured over the dictionary, relishing each new word. As an adult, I thrill at the same, but have less time to squeeze dictionary-reading into my already overburdened reading schedule, which includes pleasure reading and work requirements.
Some of my favorite words are: sesquipedalian (of course!) , supercilious, tendentiousness, bromide...and many others with purely Latin roots (mendax=mendacious).
Oh how I have missed my Korean TCM Doc. The discomfort, the healing, the intensity, the soothing 30 minutes of lying on a heated bed pad on a comfortable treatment table with soft music overhead, and the reassurance that my body heals itself with a little help! All for $7 per visit!
I visited Dr. Zhang last night and awoke feeling tired and cleansed. Although Dr. Choi is Korean and Dr. Zhang is Chinese, I couldn't help but comparing treatments, and my visit with Dr. Z reminded me of those healing visits with Dr. Choi, but for $120 more! Whoa! But worth it.
The needles went in without any pain at all, I could only feel his fingertips on my skin. I received some herbal meds to take, and the prescription that I should be healed and perhaps not even return! The toxin coating on my tongue this morning was thick with ama. I feel very tired and yet slept nearly 8 hours. I think the combination of steroid and acupuncture is working to heal this allergy. My beautiful skin is returning! I used to look in the mirror and feel distressed by wrinkles. Now I look in the mirror and am grateful for my smooth, clear, pink skin! Fresh and new and I am looking normal again! Yay! I want to visit Dr. Z again, maybe once per month, just to reminisce and to get a health pick-me-up!
... Loves to lie amongst the warm rays of sunshine and read, read, read, learn, learn, learn, and live, live, live, vicariously between the pages!
