    Word of the Week: SWIMMINGLY

    Leaf has suggested our new word for the week:

    SWIMMINGLY

    Pronounced: Swim"ming*ly

    Swimmingly means:
    • With great ease and success
    • with no problems or difficulties;
    • smoothly, easily, effortlessly, like clockwork, without a hitch, as planned, to plan; informal like a dream, like magic.

    After a difficult year, we hope everything will go swimmingly well with the new ARIA player

    Leaf mentioned that he used this word in Matt's thread "and thought to myself, hey this word is maybe crazy enough to get word of the week". And it did!

    Thanks for sending in this WORD OF THE WEEK.

    Well, for a guy who lives on an island, I'd hope you'd find this word interesting!

    When feeling a bit "Wilford Brimmingly"
    I ponder the world somewhat dimmingly.
    Till my mind surmises
    "The Sun Also Rises,"
    Then ev'rything seems to go swimmingly!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    I love that word. I'd wager that I'm one of the few Oregonians who uses that word on a regular basis.

    "How'd the rehearsal go, Randy?"

    "Swimmingly!"

    In a way, it could be in that category of English affectations that can be such fun. Like when you talk with someone from England, they tend to say that everything is "Brilliant!"

    The Garritan Forum is going along Swimmingly! It's just Brilliant!
