list it tuesday (10/19)

words-in-magazines

welcome to the first "list it tuesday"! whether it will wind up being a blast or a bomb, i don't know, but there's only one way to find out. here's my first list, a collection of words that caught my eye while magazine and book surfing this week. words are my favorite art material, so i'm always on the lookout for new ones - sometimes a single word will spawn an entire doodlepoem (or doodlerant). "frothy" already has.

if you posted your own list today, please let me know in the comments so we can find you! someone suggested that i create a "list it tuesday" button for blog sidebars - i have no clue how to do this, but if you would find it useful, i'll look into it. let me know! happy listing!

update: the new list it tuesday icon is now on the sidebar! i can't find any tutorials that show how to create a button without the distressing looking code underneath, so for now, you are welcome to grab the image for your sidebar and link it back to artsyville. not required, though - only if you wish to do so!

that list is SO COOL lynn! way to kick off the post!

Jeannine said...

I keep a word list too - some are on those little cardboard tickets ala the book Poemcrazy, but most are in a spreadsheet (I obviously need to get a little more artful with it!)

It's really amazing how a single word can spark an imagination wildfire.

tulpen said...

Love your lists! I don't have one this week, but I'm thinking about one for next week with 3 cells in the back of my brain.

HOWEVER, I did write an "ask Candy" post that details how to add one of those "grab my button" gagdets, so if you want to do it - we'll, I've made your life a wee bit easier! (It's the 2nd half of this post:

Phoenix Peacock said...

collecting words is such a clever idea`

Paper Squid said...

The word "charlatan" is interesting...makes me think of an "evil" but maybe more on the funny side and misunderstood character in a children's book, lol.

Deborah Boschert said...

Ok, I'm in. My list could not be more humble, but it's honest.

I want to sit and make a sentence using as many of those words as I can ;)

Here is my first contribution to List It Tuesday:

Buffalo Lucy said...

I swear on my favorite chasing hammer that I started to write my list during my class this morning--a list of titillating words! Ha!

Here's my backup plan:

Kelly Warren said...

fun idea, Aimee. i'll try to play along next week. these past two weeks have just been too crazy! btw, how do you get that string of share your post methods at the bottom of your post? i haven't been able to find that!

Biomouse said...

Hey Aimee,
I'm going to get a post going this afternoon with my list, but for now, if it makes things easier for you, I made a button and listed the code to grab it at the top of my sidebar on my blog. I absolutely won't be offended if you don't use it, just figured I could use the practice and you could use a button :)

Lynn Fisher said...

Wow...ask and it was given! Very nice.

aimee said...

hey, carmen - thanks for taking the initiative! i decided to do my own, and it's in progress at the moment so i'll put it on my sidebar when it's finished - hopefully later today!

super lists everyone - thanks for sharing!

Chopsticks and Spaghetti said...

I'd love to combine your words and see what comes out: perhaps a vitriolic minaret or a crenellated charlatan or a frothy comeuppance?

L'Atelier said...

The Dreaming Bear said...

OOOOHH....fun! I love your list! Those are groovy words!!! This is kinda weird, but I've thought about keeping a list of the "characters" you have to type into that little box, (visual verification) when you leave comments on someone's blog. Know what I mean? For example, I've seen "preshi"...and that happens to be what my friend calls her hubby! And "aerse"...as in don't get kicked in the "aerse." Hee hee.

Crafty Critter said...

Aimee- You would either be a force to be reckoned with or a great team member in the game Scrabble.
I posted my list. I like this feature. :)

Carissa said...

ooo, i LOVE this new "list it tuesday!" i was clipping out words today at work + pretending they were chapters in a book! i will so get down on some list it tuesday action! wooot! i left them at my desk, so i'll hafta catch up w/ the train next week! (or continue this word-search-o-rama in the woods of MN!)

xo, Carissa

Nicky Linzey said...

Well, there are 3 words I've never heard before - I shall have to look them up! (See it's an education coming here.) Great list and great idea Aimee, hope I shall get my brain in gear for next week.

Bella Sinclair said...

Should I be worried that I had to look up the meaning for some of these?

Fun fun fun! I'll have to remember next week. I was still working on boozeday tuesdays.

Hey! ReadyMade! Cool mag. :)

lori vliegen said...

Alexandra Hedberg said...

Such a fun idea!

I'll try to participate next week. I love to do lists! and I so need them to get somewhere.

but maybe I'll participate with another kind of list?

patty a. said...

People are always giving me a hard time about my lists which I write on my forearm or the back of my hand. I just tell them I won't lose my hand, but I might lose the piece of paper. So far it works for me! I will have to post a picture next Tuesday. I still not sure that I understand how to put the button on my blog, but I will talk about your blog.

Jane said...

love the list of words, Aimee. I like to keep a little notebook out while I'm reading so that I can write down the words I don't know.

Beth said...

Just added my list it Tuesday on Saturday :)

Fruenswerk said...

Sugarplum Kawaii said...

It's a strange but common addiction ya know?! I write a 'to-do' list every morning and have an on-going 'write-down-food-items-we-are-running-out-of' list on the fridge plus 2 other sorts in my diary!!

A word list is wonderful (-;


Be warned! This is a serious form of entertainment when you reach 40.
