I Am Bidding You Adieu – It’s this weeks’ weekly word

Adieu is one of those words that I associate with black and white love stories; where the couple are forced apart before they can finally be together permanently. You rarely hear it mentioned these days, except in playful homage to those times; but it’s a fabulous word which resonates with all sorts of untold stories and unexpressed emotions.

I wasn’t sure if I should come up with an alternative meaning because of my associations with it, but then thought ‘what the heck, let’s give it a go’ and I ended up with “Adieu – a personalised advertising system that delivers on the spot adverts based on your activities” – gosh, isn’t that Facebook by any other name?

Syntax is my Weekly Word: Can you guess my alternative meaning?



This weeks word comes courtesy of the lovely Stevie who was listening to me going through the dictionary to find something suitable; ‘it’s all just syntax really isn’t it‘ he quipped, and that was me hooked right in.

My alternative meaning for the word Syntax is probably quite obvious and that is ‘sex tax‘; and now, what would yours be?

Now, let’s get down to the serious business of finding out what the word really means.
