Vocabulary Coloring Contest

Chris Tamarri is holding an interesting coloring contest (link no longer available) for the recent Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E #5 Crayon Butchery Variant (a black-and-white version of the superhero parody title).

Instead of sending him your colored versions, he’s going to fill in pages based on your suggestions. Readers are invited to post words, and he will select the best 22 and color each page based on one of them. He’s not looking for color descriptions, though — one of his suggestions was “winsome”, a word I don’t hear enough.

I’m tempted to suggest my coinage from yesterday, “misunderstaken”, but I’m not sure it actually qualifies as a word yet.

    Thanks for the pointer.

    I left two suggestions – myopic and ephemera.

    I was also reminded that I need to go to my local shop and pick up this book (and hopefully the coloring book version for my 3-year-old).

    At this point, I might prefer some more straightforward comments. Already there are a few with which I’ve no idea what to do. I mean, “galumph”?

    Of course, the more interesting the word the more challenging for me, and the more (theoretically) entertaining for you all, if only to watch my brain squirm.

    And, as always, thanks for the plug, Johanna.

    Galumph galumph galumph always makes me think of elephants or galoshes. Or maybe elephants in galoshes.

    Seth, you’re giving a Warren Ellis comic to your 3-year-old?
