Several times, in the last few months, I've shared posts from the Grandiloquent Word of the Day FB page to this comm. So, I thought some of you might be interested in this announcement:
The Grandiloquent Word of the Day, by Jason Ott, is issuing a calendar for the upcoming year. You can reserve your copy in PDF and/or print today, and if you do, you will get a PDF bonus--The Grandiloquent Book of Shenanigans!
The deadline for pledging to reserve your copy is tonight, at 12 midnight.

And a bonus word from their FB page:
-The extreme or irrational fear of Woodpeckers.
From “yaffle" - a large green and yellow woodpecker (Picus viridis, family Picidae) with a red crown and a laughing call.
“phobia” via Latin from Greek - extreme or irrational fear or dislike of a specified thing or group.
Used in a sentence:
“Pinocchio was enjoying watching Saturday morning cartoons right up until The Woody Woodpecker Show induced a full-blown case of yafflephobia.”
