Journal Chacham's Journal: Journal: Car-dent bill, Cavities filled 4

I've decided to move away from the term "diaretical". It isn't a word, and it has a homonym that can be somewhat distasteful. I was thinking of using "diary", however, if i'm going to walk away i might as well run. "Journal" will now be the title of choice.

I got some mail. From the guy whose car i dented. He got his car fixed, and the charge was seventy-five dollars. If that's what it cost to fix a dent that can only be seen from the side, and a little rubbed paint, i'd hate to know what he pays for an oil change. But, what can i do? I'm off to go get a money order. I don't want to pay by check, as people have a habit of hanging onto them for while, and that simply does not work with my practice of not balancing my checkbook.

I went back to the dentist to have a couple cavities taken care of. A few shots of whatever it was, and i was numb to the pain of the drill. Though, i couldn't help but think of X-Files alien "test" as he drilled in my teeth. It was ninety-eight dollars for each amalgam fill, and i'm to go back for more.

    Body work is some of the most expensive work you can have done to a car. It takes skill that borders on artistry to do a repair that you can't notice when it's done. In the classic-car field, you'd come out way ahead buying a car that looks nic

    I think it's a pity that you have decided to ditch 'diaretical': it was such a fun word. Couldn't you at least make it 'Journal-istical'? Or 'log-ical'? Or 'log-istically'? Or 'chronicle-y'/'chronically'? Or some such?

    'Diaretical', 'Verbiage', 'Nonsense', 'Rant', 'Puzzle' rolls* off the tongue quite nicely. 'Journal', 'Verbiage', 'Nonsense', 'Rant', 'Puzzle' just doesn't* have th

      Yeah, it was. My personal favorite is still "rhymsical". You make a good point. I might take it up on the next such entry. Journalistical just seems to stiff.

      'Diaretical', 'Verbiage', 'Nonsense', 'Rant', 'Puzzle' rolls* off the tongue quite nicely. 'Journal', 'Verbiage', 'Nonsense', 'Rant', 'Puzzle' just doesn't* have the same ring to it.

      Perhaps because of the syllable usage. 3, 3, 2, 1, 2. It should always go dow

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
