The question of one's favourite word came up for me in the Facebook application "Interview" and after a brief deliberation I decided on "heresy".

As a general rule my favourite word is whichever I've most recently started using.

My current is a long-standing reigning champion: obsequious.

I've a new one.

Avuncular (əˈvʌŋkjʊlə)

adj.

  1. In the manner of an uncle, pertaining to an uncle.
  2. Hence, kind, genial, benevolent or tolerant.

I'm a histrionic, holistic, herculean halibut.

Sehnsucht. I pretty much like any words which don't properly translate. They feel special.

Sorry I was confusing my Kenneth Williams characters. In the radio sketch show Beyond Our Ken he often played an old man who every week had been doing his job for "35 years!". In its successor (so-called because the it had all the same performers, just different writers and characters), Round The Horne, he played another character with an identical voice called J. Peasmold Gruntfuttock who each week was organising another society usually aiming for world domination and sexual liberation.

Best line ever from a Julian and Sandy sketch was when they had a restaurant:

Sandy: We get all our meat from the local charcuterie.
Kenneth horne: Your butcher.
Sandy: Oh, do you think so? Must be my hair.

I have a CD that is just Julian and Sandy plus a few Round the Horne ones/ Did you ever get to see the live performances in London. They did show it on tv as well on BBC4 or somesuch station. But with the live show you felt totally immersed. They were all very good at the characters.
