one word

Updated on November 3, 2008

my best friend and manicurist comes by my house Monday mornings for coffee and to let our Chi's play together. We all enjoy this time together as the dogs play me and my friend have our coffee, catch up on the latest gossip, and just have time to relax. On one particular Monday that she was over she told me about a text message she had gotten. The text asked her to describe the person that had sent her the text message in one word, and then to describe herself in one word and compare answers. This sounded pretty neat to me and we played this little game. I described my friend as friend, because she has always been a great friend to me, actually the best. She described me as devoted, saying that anything I did I gave my complete devotion to. This of course meant a lot to me.

I would like to pass this little game on to all the hubbers out here and hope you are all willing to play.So here is how we play.

I will start out by naming a fellow hubber and describing them in one word, I will then state why I chose this word. The person I name can then choose another hubber and describe them and so on.

I hope everyone enjoys this and maybe we can spread a little hubber love.

After tossing a three headed coin I decided to go with Christoph Reilly. His word is courteous, The reason I chose this word is because he is always courteous, he never has a bad thing to say about anyone, he is always helpful and willing to give advice. He is just an all around good guy.

      Definitely in good humour! The thing is, we can't do all this mutual admiration stuff without a bull-shit meter going off.

      I can sooooo tell most of you are American!

      A similar British list would read:

      Dave - twat

      Mike - slag

      Anne - dozey

      Pete -  baldy

      LMAO, I swear I did drop a subtle hint to you. Hurry up and get that thing published. I am ready to read some new stuff from you! I have missed it terribly! Hey what's this I hera about you being Pam's muse and cooking for her and killing dragons and crap, I have to say I am a little jealous CR.

      Ok...I may write a hub about that. Consider that a sneak preview!

    • Christoph Reilly profile image

      Christoph Reilly 8 years ago from St. Louis

      You mean a hint about RJ wanting to kill me?  I remember no hint.  No.  It came as a total surprise, when I learned from his interview as Hubber of the Week that I was in his hub called Dead Celebrity Pool.  So I went to see what kind things, nice, wonderful things, had been written about me--only to find out he was planning my Death!  And everyone was LAUGHING!  And everyone was HAPPY!  And everyone was amused at my IMPENDING DEMISE!  And they were passing bottles of CHAMPAGNE! Over my CORPSE!  Dead!  Me!  Oh, how it haunts me.  I haven't slept.  I dare not close my eyes!  When I do, I dream, Gwendy, I dream of a pack of hubbers with vampire teeth in my closet and under my bed.  Oh...the dreams...horrible...horrible...aaaaahhhhhggggggg.

      Well, it's only for medicinal purposes, and Pepe will not get "turned on," "horny," or any other dangerous feelings.

      CR, thanks sooo much for offering pepe to rub my ass, I really do ned it. I'll tell him that story but somehow I don't think he'll believe it.

    • Christoph Reilly profile image

      Christoph Reilly 8 years ago from St. Louis

      No.  Rubbing one's own ass doesn't quite make it.  Well, I'll be happy to send Pepe over.  Just tell your hubby that Pepe is nothing but a little Mexican servant boy that still plays with Jumping Beans, so he is no threat!

      Country, I understand that too, My niece seemed to have gas the whole time she was around me, I must have that effect on people. I have not followed that hub, yes, he does have a way of handling just about everyone, he's a character.

      Gwendy- Have you been following that Anti Christ (Obama) hub? Shades does have a way to deal with all kinds of people. Thanks for calling me a breath of fresh air (esp during our long car trip when I used to have lots of bean chellupa my friend(she had Chicken) she would certainly disagree with the foul smell I was releasing)...LOL

      Gwendy - Ok honey take some more rest unless you have some urgent things to attend to. I agree the world can wait but we on hub can't wait for your return...hehe

      Iam kind of recovered on the work front but personally looking forward to the weekend. I did enjoy but after a hectic trip like that I feel I need a vacation(doing nothing at home) after a vacation(travelling)...LOL

      Countrywomen, I am also glad that she is doing better. I did get some rest yesterday but feel like I could use some more, but I always feel like that. I am feeling pretty good, not good enough to take on the world, but good enough to take on HP. LOL. The world will have to wait. How are you? All recovered from your trip? I wish I could have went, it sounded like you had a lot of fun. Glad you got to go and enjoy yourself.

My word for him would be: Composed. No matter what I thruw at him scripturally he will step back and think a bit before answer me. He also has this way of calming me down. He's just one nice guy.

      That would make a good hub Spryte! Here are some more I forgot.

      Marisuewrites: Mentor, the lady made me feel much better during a time my feelings were a little hurt. I take things way too personally sometimes, but she helped me to see it was not all that serious.

      Misha: Pretty, his lipstick and earrings were really cute on his previous avatar. He should bring that one back, I really liked it :).

      Dotie1, Photogenic, I love the pictures she takes for her hubs.

      Trish, Thoughtful, she always pop ups to say something kind and her hubs are full of a good spirit.

      Terenceyap, Friend, because he is that to all hubbers.

    • spryte profile image

      spryte 8 years ago from Arizona, USA

      Awwww thank you SwPie :) Although I should warn you that spryte thinks Tink is a big goody-goody and would probably put Nair in her shampoo if she thought she could get away with it :)

    • SweetiePie profile image

      SweetiePie 8 years ago from Southern California, USA

      Ripplemaker: Pure, she knows about faith and spirituality in a pure kind of way that leaves one feeling there is much hope for humanity.  When I read her stories I feel really energized and wish I could have such a view of the world.  This lady is amazing.

      Gwendymom: Thoughtful, to come up with this game, which is something that is enjoyable and community building for all.

      Paraglider: Sage, he has a great deal of real world and academic experience, but he respectively shares this with all.  He never loses his cool, and he is a truly forgiving person.

      Sixtyorson: Autobiography, the man writes wonderful stories that you could sit and read at the computer for hours. 

      Spryte: Whimsical, her hubs are creative, kind, but at times she will write about a personal experience that makes you cry, but you are in awe of her ability to overcome some very hard things.  She is a very light spirited lady that reminds me of Tinklerbell, one of my favorite Disney characters.

      Ananta: Intriguing, the man has so many facets and always surprises me with each new hub.

      ProCW: Talented, the man creates websites, writes plays, acts and directs.  He is a one man theater.

      Shirley Anderson: Kind, she always has something intelligent and diplomatic to say. 

      Jerrico: Determined, some people have reacted to his posts in the past, but I know that is just him.  Believe me, many times I do not agree with him, but I can respect his enthusiasm and desire to achieve in the world of online writing.

      Constant Walker: Healthy, the man is a little bit older than he looks, but based on his picture I would think he was 35 tops!  Constantly walking is a lost art in the world of the car, but with the economy maybe that will change :).

      Countrywomen: Negotiator, this lady has her own opinion that she shares graciously, but she is very empathetic and lets others know she can understand their point of view, even when they fail to reciprocate.

      G-ma: Nurturing, the lady makes me feel very comforted with her kind comments, recipes, and views on life.  I wish my own grandma was more like her :).

      Julianna 8 years ago from SomeWhere Out There

      It is ok to get that warm and fuzzy feeling as I do everytime I read a new article and see my fans, shine. What was intresting is that there are competitive people on hubpages and as we know jealousy rears its ugly head, however I just have fun doing what I do and it takes me away from my own little world for awhile. I love giving hugs and I even hug my patients as my heart has never grown tired of my job and when we lose a patient, I go into a room and cry as it is the hardest thing for me, regardless of how long I have been doing it.

      Thank you to each and every person who has listed me and figure me out , as yes I am kind and compassionate it is amazing how it comes out when you are writing. I am trying to work on Raw Passion on hubpages as my perception is that he.she has had a rough life, so hopefully I will be able to tame he/she's rough edges so I would give he/she one word "Misunderstood" .

      BIG HUGS to everyone again and again this has been a wonderful hub !!!:)

      As for foreign languages...I only know "speels" now in Dutch and I'm trusting that it is speeled correctly. :)

    • profile image

      Ananta65 8 years ago

      The word vanity comes to mind. According to my dictionary homy is correct. The spelling checker says differently. And English not being my native language, I err at times, apparently. Even I’m not (though you might be inclined to think otherwise, I agree) perfect *lol*

    • spryte profile image

      spryte 8 years ago from Arizona, USA

      Ananta:

      While I'm immensely flattered by the insinuation that I have a libidinous disposition...I may borrow Shadesbreath's "touchy" side and point out that while "homy" is an acceptable variant of "homey" (obviously the world population gave up on trying to correct the spelling of the word)...horny, due to the "r" and "n" have a tendency to look like an "m"...especially to OLD eyes like mine. :)

      I should wear my glasses...but that would make everything a lot less challenging and fun. :P

      Ok guys, I have made it back, finally!

      Ag, you are so cute!

      Sixty, It is a gift tosee ourselves as others see us. I hope it sticks.

      Countrywomen, you are so very sweet to try to include everyone, even if it takes you two or three tries, that just shows what a great person you are.

      Salini Kagal, thanks again for stopping in and sharing with us.

      Sally's Trove, I am glad that if challenged you, it is so very hard sometimes to describe so many thing in one word. I know that many times the way I would describe someone would take many more words than one, but it is interesting when you have to choose just one. I hope your not too pooped to particpate in another hub.

      Stephhicks68, Don't harm your computer, we would miss you if you were not able to get back on and play.

      Spryte, glad you feel all warm and fuzzy, can you take something for that? Do you need a prescription? Is there a cure? I hope it is not contagious. Dang, think I caught it, I'm all warm and fuzzy too. Thanks Spryte, Your the best!!!

      Ag,Spryte is all of those things, and so much more!

      Lazur, Thank you! Not only am I glad that you participated in this game, I am glad that I am getting to know you a little better, You seem like a truly geniune person and fun too. I think we could be great friends.

      Spryte, you might try a rolled up newspaper for Ag.

      Lazur, see you later, hopefully soon.

      Spryte, speels is a good word for you also, and so many others.

      AEvans, I wish I could take the credit for this, but I cannot. My great friend gave me the idea with her text message and I just decided it would be fun to share with everyone here. I love this little community and think of you guys as not only friends, but family. Thank you so very much for your kind words, crap now I'm getting that warm and fuzzy feeling again.

      Ananta, That probably is a good word to describe me, I just try to go with the flow. I did not do one word for you yet because honestly I was having trouble picking one word. I have thought about it alot, and still can't come up with one. I will continue to work on it.

      Gwendymom: obliging

      You may wonder why I chose this word. I’ll explain. After clearly setting the rules for this fun hub (and it is great fun), Gwendymom easily gives in when the participants change those rules. And since those rules have changed, I’ll follow her example. So here are the results from the Dutch jury:

      Spryte: impatient. Rather than waiting for Christoph she starts whining :P Although I must admit I have seen words here that describe her even better than impatient. Eric has said it and he’s right. *smile*

      Christoph: sportsmanlike would be a good word to describe him. He showed he’s a good sport when he so courageously put in a poll to come up with a new avatar. And here too, he plays by the rules. Initially, that is :)

      Misty: self-explanatory. Her nick says it all. She is misty, in a good way. Her mind can float into different directions. As to you comment, Misty, I can say only one thing of course: Here’s Johnny!

      Lady Guinevere: enigma. Just by the choice of her nick. It already started way back when she drove great men to legendary adventures and continues today here on HubPages.

      Shadesbreath: touchy. It really doesn’t take much to set him off. A misspelled word, a simple remark about what he believes is beer and he’s on a roll. Unstoppable. And we should continue to light that fuse as often as we can as brilliant hubs come out of it.

      Agvulpes: modest. With modesty and self-esteem he blends in the community; leaving his footmarks here and there, never offending anyone.

      Jewels: eager :) “Can I plan, Can I? Can I?” As soon as you discovered this hub you couldn’t wait to dive right in, could you?

      Shalini Kagal: curious. Curious to understand life, understand other people.

      Trish1048: homy. I see Trish enjoying the simple things in life in the comfort of a home that’s nicely decorated. Reaching out to others to share the warmth she has inside.

      Countrywomen: alert. She notices the little things, the subtle remarks.

      B.T. Evilpants: territorial. He sees himself as the protector of the Jackalopes and will do anything to stand up for them. He’d be a pit bull if he wasn’t a Jackalope :)

      Ajcor: involved. Can’t really say why, but that‘s the word that comes to mind.

      t.keeley: respectful. Convinced in his beliefs and firm in his opinions, but never pushing those upon others.

      Mighty Mom: considerate. Her first concern is the well being of others, sometimes even to the point where her own interests are ignored.

      AEvans: Christian. Supported by her faith she truly cares for others and makes an effort to ease these others’ pain and sorrow.

      Eric Graudins: Grounded. Always in for a good laugh and very down to earth.

      Sixtyorso: Young. Being sixty (or so) still discovering the world with the curiosity of a child.

      Misha: Lazy :P Laid back guy who gets away with thinking of only one word for all ;)

      Feline Prophet: deep. She thinks about life a lot.

      Sally’s Trove: Warm. Another caring person, what more can I say?

      Princessa: Feminine. Not that the other women I Mentioned aren’t, mind you, but this is the word that comes to mind when I think about Princessa.

      G-Ma Johnson: cuddly. I bet her grandchildren speak fondly about her as being the best.

      Lazur: Sensitive. Always in for fun, yet also always considerate of others’ feelings.

      Sweetiepie: Sweet indeed. If she had her way we’d all agree on everything and live happily ever after :)

      Terenceyap: compassionate. 

      PGrundy: outspoken. :)

      Lazur 8 years ago from Netherlands

      Soooo.... I had to think for a while and tried to translate the dutch words that were popping up in my mind for some of you..

      Spryte-playfull

      Misty-tender

      Christoph-joyous

      G-Ma-caring

      Shades-Skilled

      Misha-clever

      spryte;

      you forgot to mention, brightens the sky after a storm?

      has as many talents as there are colors in the rainbow?

      and steph was the only person who said I was smart, thanks steph!

      and if you still want the gold I'll arm wrestle! or bite you on the um..er..hmm, ankle!

      I love playing catch-up on this hub and reading all the wonderful things people say about each other. And Gwendy...I think this was REALLY needed for the hubpages and is very timely. It's a good exercise after all the heated debates and discussions regarding politics...just to remind us all why we like each other. Awww...now I feel all warm and fuzzy :)

      Sally & KT - You overwhelm me with your words. Thank you!

      Steph - I hope no computers were hurt in those postings. :) Thank you for calling me fanciful! I like it.

      Hmmm...let's see. Aggie says I'm a rainbow and wants me to figure it out. Well...there are those Skittles candies that are a rainbow of fruit flavors in every package. Then again...he could be referring to the fact that I'm diversity-friendly. Or maybe...he thinks there's a pot of gold at my feet and he's a leprechaun. In which case I would say, "Back off shorty...it's my gold!" :)

      I was trying to leave a comment and something went awry .... anyway, I was just saying that I am not at HubPages as much as I used to be, but I will try to jump into this game:

      Constant Walker - friendly

      Countrywoman  - perceptive

      Sixtyorso - wise

      Agvulpes - smart

      Sally's Trove - heritage

      I will continue in the next comment....

      Here we go...part 2. 

      Countrywomen.  Compassionate, because of the sincerity with which you listen to and respect those who hold differing points of view.  I could have used the word *respect*, but compassion, I believe, describes that deeper layer of the soul which, when not present, cannot allow respect.

      Ajcor.  Complex.  Your profile says it all, if we read it carefully, starting with the first sentence.  By the time we get to *closet scribbler*, the complex pattern begins to take shape.  I think your complexity is most evident in the contrast between a Hub like *An Australian Horror Snake Story…* and the Hubs in the *Behaviours* series. 

      Pgrundy.  Eclectic.  Is there anything that doesn’t interest you, anything that you cannot do a bang-up job of writing about?  I think your many opinions, interests, and experiences are even more varied than you let us see.

      Shalini Kagal.  Introspective.  I see you always asking, *Why do I think that way, why do I feel this way?*  I admit, I make my impression not just from your Hubs and comments, but also from your amazing Internet sites outside of the Hub world.  

      Barack Obama.  Focused.  The Obama for President campaign was probably one of the most well organized, structured, and implemented short-term businesses the world has ever seen.  You led a team to set a goal, create a mission, meticulously operationalize a time table, establish milestones and contingency plans, and you led that team with unwavering commitment to achieve its goals to time and budget.  Oops!  I must be tired.  He doesn’t write here, does he?

      There are so many more Hubbers whom I respect and admire.  I gotta' tell you, Gwendy, you really challenged me to think about why I like them all so much.  This game turned out to be, for me, an exercise in evaluating my perceptions and distilling them into an essence.

      I admire your invitation, but I don't know if I'll participate in another of your inventions.  I'm pooped!

      All the best, Sally.

      I mean a second or third list like I have been contemplating (I still have missed a few whom I would like to add). I read your comment in the other hub where you were mentioning that guys are sleeping when you have just arrived at the party...LOL

      Btw thanks for considering me wise eventhough I didn't say a very flattering word for you.

      Infact that shows you are very wise (I mean my opinion of you doesn't affect your opinion about me).

       Good night and will go back to sleep (Shutting down my poor over heated laptop)...hehe

      Sixtyorso- Just got up and checked to find you online. I hope you do compile a one word list like some of us have done (I am sure we will respond to it when we come online later in the day). Btw I hope you were not offended by my comment.

      Trish, welcome back!

      Sally, your too kind.

      G-ma, sorry your computer was down, that must have been hell, glad you made it by.

      Ag, was it as good for you as it was for me? But seriously, a girl needs some foreplay baby, we'll work on that.

      Kt, pdx, Glad you stopped by.

      Sorry my comments weren'rt better but I am tired and had a rough evening. I try back tomorrow when my brain is not so fuzzy.

      Ok, I'll give this a try. I'm kind of new around here, so bear with me on this one.

      Ag and Misha: Quick-witted. They're always there with a comment, pointed or not, and often a turn of phrase that you wouldn't see coming. They bring out the best in people.

      Spryte: Complex. Just when you think you know what she's going to do, she goes in another direction, from compelling to humorous to serious to playful.

      Misty/Cindy: Loving. Considerate in so many ways, and patient. Feisty would fit her, too.

      Shades: Resourceful. He pulls in experience from so many different levels and ties it all together.

      Anne.Moss: Experienced. She writes about many things so well, and is an experienced blogger (how many? three different sites?).

      Sixty: Genuine. His hubs make me reflect on life.

      Witchee1014: Varied. Her hubbing jumps from topic to topic, but when she chooses something she writes with enormous clarity and wit.

      There are others, too, so just because I didn't mention you doesn't mean I don't still love you. ;)
