    Hmmm. Every time I try to vote I get:
    Server Error in '/' Application.
    Procedure 'WordVote' expects parameter '@wordV', which was not supplied........

    However, if I have managed successfully to register 'bling' as word of the year, I would like to vote for that word.

    Apologies to everyone who struck this problem. I've fixed it, and yes, ' bling' is now in there.

    OMFG! Eight freaks with legs!"

    Actually the original title for the film was Arach Attack but given the timing of its release (2002 I believe) Hollywood, in all of its infinite wisdom, decided it wouldn't work given what was expected to happen in Iraq.


    Back on topic - some words I have tried (and failed) to get in news stories this year:
    - pugnacious
    - indomitable
    - inimitable
    - dyspeptic
    - ebullient
    - choleric
