juncaceous (adj) real estate term used to market large plots to rural based lower socio-economic classes.

Now, if you'll come through to the backyard, you'll find it's very juncaceous, capable of holding several unworkable motor vehicles, plus your old bathtub, suitcases and barrels and still plenty of room for abandoning all your children's cherished toys.

It's time for the first Dictionary Game judging of twentyten!

If that wasn't enough to excite you, here's the definition of juncaceous:
a. pertaining to or like a rush; belonging to rush family of plants.

Thank you for all your entries.

The breakdown:

Marcus Bales' three entries: of these, I only really liked this one:

An historical period of approx 30 million years between the Jurrassic and the Cretaceous.

During the Juncaceous Period Gymnosperms (especially conifers, Bennettitales and cycads) and ferns became common. Many types of dinosaurs, such as sauropods, carnosaurs, and stegosaurs proliferated. Mammals were common but small. Ichthyosaurs and plesiosaurs were diverse. Bivalves, Ammonites and belemnites were abundant. Sea urchins were very common, along with crinoids, starfish, sponges, and terebratulid and rhynchonellid brachiopods.

So I'm going to ignore the others, and award this one two free tickets to the Royal Tyrell Museum! Enjoy.

For YsaPur, it seemed only fitting that she receive her very own Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture Lego set. Choose from the Guggenheim or Fallingwater!

What to give Brynn, the woman who has everything? Well, perhaps she has a hankering to open up her very own Bridal Shoppe. I thought Brynn might like this Red Cross charity shoppe -- it is in keeping with her generous nature.

xfox sounds a little like the winter blues may be setting in. What better way to combat them than donning one of these? I hear the pink is extremely popular.

As for funkytuba, please feel free to choose what you and your daughter need from this page. Tape for projects is very important and you must not run out. EVER.

Capt. Coffee, perhaps a new ship would cheer you. Just send the bill to Ze Frank!

HFox wins Coveted Second Prize and the honorary title of Realtor. That should be enough for anyone!

Oh, and who gets to judge the next round?

xfox! Because I could never just give someone a Snuggie...

juncaceous - that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you realize that someone else hasn't done what needs to be done, and you're going to have to do it after all.

when Xfox didn't post a word, Hfox started feeling juncaceous.

penaglet - a tiny bit of very hot curry

Fritz looked at the penaglet, scoffed, and swallowed it. Within fifteen seconds he was sweating and crying out in extreme pain.

penaglet - Scottish the little man in the boat.


He smiled with quiet satisfaction as she gave a little gasp and shudder when his finger found her penaglet.

penaglet
1. a plactic, but mostly metal ornamental covering of a pen's end, which renders it impossible to write with.
2. a condom

Marcus gave a little gasp and shudder when reaching back, his fingers didn't find his trusty penaglet.

penaglet - a short reminder note

Eventually one could hardly notice the filth on the refrigerator through Diana's thick layer of penaglets.

penaglet: the bit of extremely hot hot glue you don't notice until it drips onto the back of your thumb.
