pungent adjectives of disesteem

i just got a subscription to thinkmap's visual thesaurus, a delightful online tool. i think it might just be the best twenty dollars i ever spent. enter a word into its machine and you get back an entire constellation of words related to it in varying shades and meaning, which you can then click on and see a veritable fireworks display of new words shower out from that origin. i just can't fully express my happiness over its design and potential scope. and i swear this is not an ad.

lots of great links to be had through this site as well. for example, i found the phobialist there. it has been in the making for several years and is the most extensive list of phobias i've yet to see. who knew there was a bonafide name for the fear of sourness?

of northern lights, dinner conversations, and sexual questions?
