enthusiasm

(there's a proverb which says: Enthusiasmus is das schönste Wort der Erde = Enthusiasm is the greatest word on earth)

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls"

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

ive always been fond of "annihilation"

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

"hoover" and "phonic"

We are what we are - forever live or die
Don't tell me how to act - how to be - how to live
I am what I am from beginning to the end

onomatopoeia ...and so fun to say

fuselage is a good one too

Cub fans, by consensus, are the best in baseball. Year after year, in good times and (mostly) bad, they turn out in vociferous numbers, sustaining themselves with a heavenly ichor that combines loyalty, criticism, cheerfulness, durability, rage, beer and hope, in exquisite proportions.

smith - so many pronounciations
smurf - so many meanings, I think it's the only word next to 'thingie' that can mean just about everything

Everything you do continues long after you've gone
