C is for many things. In fact I have just today decided that C is my absolute favourite letter EVER! A lot of my favourite words begin with C and so instead of picking only one of them to blog about I decided to share all my favourite C words with you....aren't you the lucky ones! (Also if you read to the end there's a nice little C video link that I think you will LOVE....fingers crossed that none of you out there are too adverse to bribery!)

CAN - What a great word! Its a verb and means 'to be able to!' For example: You can do it! You can be amazing! You can do anything you set your mind too! You can be a carefree, cheeky chipmunk ;)

CHARM - Another amazing C word. Charm is 'the power or quality of giving delight or arousing admiration'. Charm is also the beginning of the word 'Charmed' which is a fabulous 8 series tv show about 3 witches who rock. I like people with a certain charm, I like to be charming and I love charmed! Yay!

COINCIDENCE - 'A remarkable concurrence of events or circumstances without apparent causal connection'. (Also great definition with all those C words!) I adore coincidences they make me wonder about the world....is it fate? Are these coincidences real? And if so what are the chances! But actually what are they? Someone work t out for me!

COPULATE - Simply a really, really fun way of saying 'have sexual intercourse'. (Hee hee hee....silly childish giggle!)

CATACLYSM - I like this word because of the shapes it helps you to make! The definition is 'A large-scale and violent event in the natural world. Or a sudden violent upheaval, esp. in a political or social world. It's not the nicest thing but the word is very satisfying to say.....I have just always liked it. It's a powerful word and actually I think suits it's definition.

COLLIDE - is 'hit with force when moving!' It's what particles do when they react which I think is cool as! For example have you ever been on the bummer cars at the fun fayre and you chase your friends round so you can collide or crash int them! It's hilarious! I love colliding and I love that something which brings me so much joy is happening at such a minuscule level in the particle theory!

CABOODLE - 'The whole number or quantity of people or things in question'. This is just another fun to say one....I don't use it often and to be honest up until 2 weeks ago I had never heard it but it was in the book I was reading and I thought I'd share it with you!

CHIVALROUS - Is what Hollywood RomCom movies strive for in their leading men! Its also what we (most women) look for in our future husbands! 'Courteous and gallant, esp. toward women'. So boys pay attention...be chivalrous and charming and we will love you all the more!

CHUCKLE - 'Laugh quietly or inwardly'. I love to chuckle, it often happens right before a hysterical or dirty laugh....I don't know why but if something tickles me I chuckle and then I find chuckling really rather hilarious so I laugh even more!

CALAMARI - 'Deep fried squid' baby! Usually served in battered rings! Absolutely scrummy! (Here's a bonus receipe for you because you all deserve it! http://www.nigella.com/recipes/view/quick-calamari-with-garlic-mayonnaise-41 )

So that's my C blog - some other words which I also love are: Consequences, Collaborative, Combat, Consumption, Cabaret, Chauffeur, Chicane, Condyles and Chubsey (NB Chubsey may or may not be a real word but again I like it!)

There's C.....as promised your little video treat! Please find attached 'The Cheese Rap' as created by my creative and charming friend Grovermauve of the Inane Ramblings blog (also doing A-Z) so here we go....one rap about cheese!


Thanks again for reading! Any more C words that I can love??????

Ps loving your C blogs! Xxxxx


  1. 'cacophony' is a good one (and from Greek - if in doubt, Greek it out - which admittedly doesn't make any sense but I couldn't think of a better rhyme; I'm not Rhyme Girl you know!)

    This comment got weird, didn't it?

  2. No it got awesome!

    If in doubt Greek it out. Ha ha ha ha. Love it!

  3. I love the word cataclysmic. It's so...descriptive. Great for writing.

  4. Oh, I love calamari, and had a chuckle reading your description on copulate. A fun way to dress it all up, eh?
    Fun C post.
