Always love your links BB... thanks for all the "wasted" time over the years!

If you don't mind, I'd like to use your vocabularly post to plug a line of children's T-shirts and onesies my friend Debbie and I launched a couple of months ago.

Called SATees: Big Words for Little Kids (and starring excellent typography via designer Debbie of dglassdes.com), these are simple shirts with ridiculously sophisticated—but nonetheless appropriate—adjectives for children, such as:

indefatigable (untiring)
itinerant (wandering)
blithesome (cheeful)
pulchritudinous (beautiful)
recondite (difficult to understand)
