The A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal

The A to Z Challenge is coming up quickly, and it's already time for the A to Z Challenge Theme Reveal.

There are always those weird words that you can't quite believe exist.  Words with weird definitions, or words that describe odd, highly specific situations.  Maybe if we used them everyday, we'd be accustomed to their existence, but for whatever reason, they've fallen by the wayside.

For this year's challenge, I will choose a word each day that isn't well known.  I will give you a definition for that word, and then I will give you a funny, geeky reason or two as to why it is good to know what that word means.  I want to do this because A) being the nerd who likes to know weird vocabulary words is cool (I won't let anyone tell me differently), and B) this will give me the chance to try to be funny.  I don't know if I'll pull off the humor portion of things, but I will try.  And you can expect my love for science and science fiction to come into play from time to time.

Are you participating in A to Z?  What's your theme?


  1. Hi! I'm dropping by from the Theme Reveal Fest!

    I'm really, really excited to read your upcoming posts; I'm a self-proclaimed geek as well so it'll be awesome to expand my vocab! Cheers to humor, words and the challenge month!

  4. This sounds like fun. :)

    1. That's awesome! Checked it out and am totally following you now! ^_^

  5. That's a really cool idea for a theme. I'll have to check back and learn some vocabulary words.

  6. I see lots of learning going on, over time one forgets half the vocab they learned so this will be good.
