If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

Hi, Summer,

I really like your favorite word. It's a good one. Also a wonderful choice for what you'd like to hear from God.

There is so much pain around us, it would be amazing to go to a place with none.

I was going to say answer the favorite noise one, but it's kind of x-rated. ;)

Margo Benson said...

Ooh, like Phantasmagoric! I have a cat snoring next me as I write, that's kind of cute too!

Tracy said...

Phantasmagoric is a kickass word and I WILL find way to use it in a sentence today. Not sure how, but it'll happen.

Jules said...

Well we curse alike :) I love the answer to God and I'm glad you defined your favorite word. I was reaching for the dictionary :)

Great answer. "Pain doesn't exist here." BTW - you won't want to visit me if you don't like temper tantrums. :) Not with three boys in my house. LOL

Alyssa Fox said...

I love your favorite word.

J.L. Campbell said...

Whiny kids can be a pain, not to mention embarrassment in public places! Looking at your least favourite word makes me think how inventive people have been at coming up with words that have negative connotations that relate in some way to women. :(

JohnGMarino said...

I do like your favorite word might, have to rthink mine now.

L.A. Colvin said...

I love the sound AND fell of a cat purring. Of course I have dogs.

Is it bad that while everyone is complimenting "phantasmagoric" and "pain doesn't exist here," all I can hear dancing around my head is "fuck, fuck, fuckity, fuck?" I don't know, maybe I'm just in a cursing kind of mood today, but there's something about it. It's the perfect balance of harsh and soft sounds. Lovely. Fuck.

DL Hammons said...

I agree totally with your choice of worst word. Whore is an ugly word!!!

Mason Canyon said...

Great answers. The sound of a cat purring is very peaceful.
