this thread reminds me of the movie sneakers and the scene where mary mcdonnell's character is talking about how she loves the word "passport".
love: antique, spork, poetry, baggins (yes, LOTR), creativity, photo/foto/photography, misfit
hate: gruel, painbow (i don't know what the hell that is, but i read it recently and it's a pretty common 'word', apparently)
there's another word i read quite a while back - selphotography - i assume it's self portrait photography. i thought that was pretty cool.
