I think somewhere around the late eighties or early nineties the act of making up silly words suddenly got very serious.

And now for the first entry…
I’m trying my hardest to be coy, knowing and just a bit whimsical. The best entries I’ve read and in others’ diaries are. I think it keeps you a safe distance from either sentiment or tawdry self-aggrandizement. All of which are words much to exact to be coy, knowing or even slightly whimsical.
