Kirkist

noun. An adherent of the ‘kirk’ or Scottish church.

What hath been done by kirkists these last dozen of yeers.
The discovery of a most exquisite jewel, Thomas Urquhart (1652)

Scottish church? BORING! Here at On Words and Upwards! I strive to boldy go where no nonce-word has gone before… but not to Scotland. I chose this word for how it looked, not the definition. Nothing wrong with the Scottish Church, of course. But it just doesn’t seem entertaining. Someone please feel free to enlighten me — I’ve never been to church in Scotland.

I propose that the name Kirkists be applied to all those who feel that Captain Kirk is superior to Picard. That’s right Trekkies, Trekkers and Trekkists, it’s an epic battle for votes and only one Star Trek captain can be the victor. Are you a Kirkist or a Picardist?

    Skip Hop Studio Diaper Tote Bag is awesome.So numerous wallets – as well as not really those small, worthless pockets, either. Almost all of the pockets tend to be a good dimension and truly help keep everything organized. The handles are a good length and fit nicely more than the actual shoulder; the tackle straps also remain put on my arm, which is critical when you are holding a baby. The handbag seems fantastic, as well. Not as well fancy, but not too casual. (I’ve it in black) The material is soft (can’t believe of a far better word) so it is easy to squeeze in to tight spaces – but yet it is sturdy. I have a Fleurville Lexi carrier and I love it, as well, but that tote is actually kind of rigid. I assume that Skip*Hop may turn into my everyday bag. It’s a bit significant – so if you’re not really in to significant hand bags this may perhaps be superior as an over-night baby diaper tote.
