Xenomenia, No Seriously

X is for Xcuse Me

I don’t know about the rest of you, xpecially those of you who actually did the right blog on the right day, but I’m about blogged out! I could not think of a single thing interesting that started with the letter ‘x’. Of course, I thought of the usual, xylophone, x-ray, x-men, xanadu (BTW the blogger that stuck song that in my head, I’m coming after you) and xenodocheionology.

Okay the xeondocheionolgy is a lie, but I do love hotels.

So, I was looking for an ‘x’ word that meant procrastinator, as I’m definitely guilty, but alas I’m ‘x’ed out of luck.

I did find out something special though, I’m a xanthous! Now, if you’d have called me that in the tenth grade I probably would have hidden under my desk and cried, but by the time I was twenty, especially with a couple of tequila shots in me, I’d have busted your front teeth out. However; today with the vast wisdom I’ve acquired, received a few swings at my own teeth, I’m quite proud to be one.

Redhead that is!

I know every insult there is that goes along with being a xanthous but I still find my favorite to be: Red on the head like a piece of cornbread. Quite literary, don’t you think?

Okay short and sweet, I’m just going to explain that title: Xenomenia-menstruation from abnormal orifices. he he Think I’m going to use that one!


  1. Where is the like button for this blog.I throughly enjoy reading this it made me laugh a little.It's nice to have bit of humor...Nice post!

  2. LOL. I have redheads in my family and there's a trace of it in my hair. I'm pretty convinced redheads are a separate race.

  3. good job, oh xanthous one.
    happy x day!
    thank goodness only 2 left =)

  4. I love this word; my hubby is a red head. He hates the red headed step child expression. I think it is likely we will have a red headed grandchild. My son has my coloring, dark and our daughter a blonde.
    Nice to meet you~

  5. Great post ... let's hear it for the most famous redhead of all ... Carrot Top!

  6. Hehehe. Loved this post. Yay for redheads!

  7. I always wanted to be xanthous! I have a red-headed stepchild, myself; at least she's red-headed when she remembers to buy the hair coloring.

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog--I'm happy to have found you! :)

  8. @ f.a. Thanks for the comment!

    @ Bish you might be onto something there, but it's probably all the rousing we take as kids that leave us permanently traumatized.

    @ Tara Thank the bejesus it's only 2 more.

    @ Ella, your hubby is redhead? Then I won't say a word, I'm sure you're worn out already.

    @ Stephen, seriously? I think you meant Lucille Ball!

    @ Ellie, can I have that hat?

    @ Marian, do you call her the redheaded stepchild? You know how we love that!

    Thanks for the comments having a blast catching everyone's posts but won't be great when we can catch them every other day or so again?

  9. Great post, and loved the redhead baby! Thanks for following my blog. Looking forward to reading more from you!

  10. Cool! I didn't know that meant redhead.

  11. LOL I'm an assisted redhead (have it in the family but only got natural highlights). I found your post when I was googling xenomenia. I was like, what's that? Eww!

    It's strange the things you find looking for alphabet words.
