I am interested in words. I enjoy coining words and phrases.My current coined word is crimster.This is the smallest type of criminal possible.To be a crimster you may have done any of the following things and/or many other minuscule petty crimes. 1.Parked in a handicapped space w/out proper permit. 2.Left a store w/anything worth less than $1.99 because there was a long line and you were in a hurry or you are simply impatient.You rationalise you will pay next time but never do because it would be awkward. 3.You pretend to pick up your dog's poop but you really leave it there. 4.You deliberately keep a pen you borrowed at the doctor's office. etc.etc. I am an avid reader. Currently reading a book of Emily Dickinson poems and letters.This has led me to use a dictionary quite often.I also found this site while searching for meaning. ~(-_-)~ I enjoy coming up with new complex smiley faces.
