X is for Xyresic Xanthochroid Xanthippe -- Day 24 of the "A to Z Blogging Challenge"

I am a xyresic xanthochroid xanthippe. There, I said it! Its out in the open for all to see. I'm not the least bit ashamed, either.

What, you ask, is a xyresic xanthochroid xanthippe? The following definitions are from my favorite source of obscure words, the Grandiloquent Dictionary (

Xyresic: Being as sharp as a razor.
Xanthochroid: A blond haired and blue eyed person with fair white skin.

Xanthippe: An ill tempered woman.

Therefore, I am an ill-tempered woman with blonde hair, blue eyes, and fair skin, and I like to think I'm as sharp as a razor. Ok. So my hair isn't completely blonde, it has a lot of red in it, and I do have freckles now, though as an infant my skin was as pale as porcelain. Oh, and some days I don't feel so sharp. But I still think I qualify.

I'll bet you didn't think I'd come up with even one legitimate word starting with X for today, no less three.

Blog on, friends.
