    :) You should win an award for just attempting to pronounce those words.

  2. Ah, callipygian has long been my favourite word. It's hard to slip into everyday speech, though.

    Better callipygian than dasypygal!

  3. Paul - Thanks! I had to do a lot of takes just to get it to that point...which is sad. But it was fun!

    Rob - Isn't that a great one?! But yes, hard to slip into everyday speech. And dasypygal? Oh man, I just giggled like a madwoman at my desk over that one. That will be going into a future Word-Hoard.
