Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
A Bit of Me(me) Button

Created by Danielle at There’s a Book, A Bit of Me(me) is all about getting to know other bloggers outside of books.  It is a safe way to put yourself out there, one question at a time.  This week’s question is a fun one.

Next Week’s Question: What is your favorite word and why?
Okay, I never said Danielle’s questions were easy!  LOL!  I have to say that my favorite word is one I do not use because I am always afraid I am going to mispronounce it.  Macabre.  Isn’t that a great word?  Defined as “gruesome, ghastly, grim”, I don’t love it because of its definition.  I love it because of the way it sounds.  It immediately evokes a sense of darkness.  It sounds exactly like its definition, and I love it.
So, why do I like such a dark word that suggests death and everything associated with it?  I’m not certain.  Maybe it is my inner Goth girl clamoring for attention?  As I mentioned, it is one of the few words that immediately draws a picture.  I tend to gravitate towards the darker side of literature, hence my fascination with the vampire legend.  I love Saint-Saens’ “Danse macabre”; it is one of my favorite pieces of classical music.  I just think it is a cool word!
What about you?  If you had to choose your favorite word, which one would you choose?
