Excellent! Thanks, Samfan, for posting the link — always enjoy having my own pet peeves confirmed. Especially 'artisanal.' :rofl:

OMG!!!!! I was looking at the list, spotted the word "influencer" and believed that was a good choice - and then I spotted my name as one of the people who mentioned it!!!! :eek:

(Does that make me - GULP - an "influencer?" :lol: )
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

P.S. I just noticed that the person who nominated the word 'totes' is one Samantha Stuart. Different spelling of the surname, but still! :samkiss:
