I used Merriam-Webster. Here's the link: pa-ching
I didn't know either one, so I thought they'd both be good ("the weirder the better"). I guess I was right!

that's from the 'open dictionary'; or, you could have made that up and entered it your own self!

I'm not sure if I have that right; I'll ask if she's willing to come take a look. But if there are any takers, I'll offer some from the Chambers Jo gave me:thymy and tight. When you do one, put two more for the next person.


Hm. Where'd I get that crazy idea.... Oh yeah! At the top of the page, in the roolz!

HEH! laugh

Since we're online, I assumed "online" open dictionary. It really is funny, because you can totally see it both ways, which neither of us did at first. I do have a physical dictionary, but too lazy to go get it...
