Title: Thu., 9/18 Julian Lim
Post by: magus on September 18, 2014, 09:04:46 AM
THEME:   first word of a phrase is colloquial for good
Beginning auspiciously {& theme}   OFF TO A GOOD START   
Promising words   OATHS   
Site site {twice}   NET; WEB   
"You gotta be kidding me!"   AW MAN [it's "Oh, man!" or "Aw gee!"  or just plain "Man!"]

Isn't our language amazing!  WICKED = good (I think beatniks/hippies used BAD for good, but it appears each generation must distinguish itself in the order of cool, which means hip, which means rad, which means with it, which means...)

From his word choices, Julian, I would guess, was educated in England; or as in my case, read lots of British lit.   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
