  1. I love this word! and have heard of it. Kind of old-fashioned, like a word we could have an elderly character say. ;o)

  3. I just got a flashback to the Teletext game. I used to love playing this. Bamboozle was a UK quiz that used the coloured buttons, on the remote control, to answer the questions.

    Am not sure if you had a Teletext equivalent in the US, but it was a text information retrieval service. You could access sports, t.v. guide, weather, etc. And of course, games.

  4. Wow, that's one I've never heard! I would never have even guessed its meaning. But a fun word to say :)

    Stopping by from Carol Riggs' blog!

    (And also: the quote by Dr. Seuss in your sidebar is one of my favorites.)
