Errrryeah. About ten years ago, when I was living in Colorado, I entered a charity spelling bee. English professor = good vocabulary, right? Plus, somewhere in a closet there was still a box with the trophies from those high-school Word Derivations and Greek/Latin Vocabulary Elements competitions. And you know, Latin was one of my languages in graduate school.

I got spelled out in the seventh or eighth round, with the word "sedens." My mind went completely blank, I couldn't put "legal right of residency" together with "sede," and I went down to ignominious defeat.

But, by whocky, I will NEVER EVER forget that word.

I would tag batchix, nagasvoice, and tubbysnuggles, but I know those stories already . . . oh, shoot, though, I meant to put honeyedbiscuit on the list, because I've always wondered where that name came from! I neeeeeeed more than ten.

And now I know what "sedens" means. I have always wondered. You know what mine means, four yorkies as constant companions, need I say more?
