salmagundi \sal-muh-GUHN-dee\, noun:1. A salad plate usually consisting of chopped meat, anchovies, eggs, and onions, served with oil and vinegar.2. Any mixture or assortment; a medley; a potpourri; a miscellany.

"miscellany" is a good one too. Thanks to my brother nate for calling to my attention the Word of the Day website.

Great word! I found a real corker today:"psychoethnomusicological." Cool, huh? It has something to do with studying the music and psychology of another culture. I'm writing a paper on "ethnomusicology for the missionary." fascinating stuff!

I've never eaten salmagundi nor have I written my magnum opus (that's today's word on our word of the day calendar) to punctuate my great career of blogging. Do you get a new word emailed to you each day? I used to do that but it got overwhelming.

NO WAY! I hate email clutter. I just check out the site if I happen to remember. I have waaaay too many emails coming to me daily. If I could remember my password, I would unsubscribe, but the baby is sucking all the brain cells...LOL
