10 Good Things on a Monday!

10 Good Things on a Monday is a weekly meme I am doing dedicated to every person's compulsive list-writing.  Every Monday we are going to make a list of 10 things that will cheer us up and help tide us over the whole week.

Here's how it works:
  1. Think of a particular group of good things you want to make a list on, does not necessarily have to be about books, e.g. your current book wish list, or your favorite book foods (you know, foods you love to eat while reading, if you're like me), or your favorite girly names, whatever you can think of, as long as it makes you feel good.
  2. If you have no ideas for a list, you can always visit my blog post to check out my theme for that week and you can take a cue from my list.
  3. Post your list on your blog, grab that cute ARGH button above and put it on your post too, so we'd know you're doing this meme.
  4. Leave the link for your post on my own 10 Good Things post for the week, if you see others doing it, comment too and let's share our good things with everybody.
  5. Everybody goes through the whole week happy!

My 10 Good Things for this weekTen Words that Sound Funny (to me, at least)
  1. Kamote /ka-mo-teh/ - Filipino name for sweet potato
  2. Tomato
  3. Farthingale
  4. Kili-kili /kee-lee-kee-lee/ - Filipino name for armpits
  5. Poknat /pok-nut/ - Filipino word for a bald patch on the head
  6. Bubulcitate
  7. Onomatopoeia
  8. Morulla
  9. Smorgasbord
  10. Oophorectomy - this means the surgical removal of an ovary/ovaries.  It sounded funny to me because in Filipino, we say Oo /oh-oh/ and Opo /oh-poh/ to mean 'Yes,' with Opo used to sound more respectful.  We also punctuate some of our sentences with Po to also be more respectful, especially when talking to older people.  So when I hear 'oophorectomy,' to me it sounds like your ability to say yes is being surgically removed from you and not just your ovaries.
A funny but happy Monday to everyone!

I just have to tell you, ARGH feeds on awesomeness, so if you can, drop him some awesome here, and I promise to give some awesome back :D

Right now, because of my really busy schedule, I'm cutting back on receiving awards. So until further notice, me and ARGH would not be accepting awards. But thank you for thinking of us, we really appreciate it!
