There Should Be More Good Days
November 14th, 2001 - 1:59 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
I had a good day. I just thought I should mention that, seeing as I don't think I put the happy stuff in here all that often. That's it. Happy stuff should be here more often so that people don't think I'm depressed and I have nothing else to say except that I missed 1/2 of Buffy tonight and all of the musical one so I'm now extremely confused.
lalapalooza (n. lah-luh-puh-LOO-zuh)
: something superior or unusual : an outstanding example
Many readers may recognize lalapalooza as the name of a music festival held annually in the 1990s. Actually, the word lalapalooza has been around since at least the 1890s, though etymologists aren't sure where it comes from. Occasionally, it has been used as a gambling term for a made-up hand used to trick an inexperienced player -- but primarily the term is used in a way very similar to humdinger and doozy. It is spelled in a number of ways. Lallapalooza, lollapalooza, and lollapaloosa are among the variants, and in the past it was sometimes lalapaloozer. Pulitzer prize-winning cartoonist Rube Goldberg may have contributed to the popularity of this slang term with Lala Palooza, one of his cartoon characters from the 1930s.
