I think one of my favorites has to be "discombobulated" (I think that's how it's spelt...)

I LOVE words!! I can't believe how silly some of them sound... and how goofy some of the spellings are!!

The English language fascinates me :-)

Nope. Dollar coins aren't that common here at all. We've got a lot of that paper stuff. ;-) I got a dollar coin from my Grandpa when they were first made, and never spent it because my Dad told me not to. So it's not the first time i've seen one, it's just not very common. I thought it was even more ridiculous when I realized that I accidentally got both of these by accident for quarters. [25 cents]
