Thesaurus Adventures

The other day I had my friend Cathy over. While working on a post on the Map Guy we found it necessary to find an alternate word for cool, which as you know is to be avoided at all costs on my blogs. Well the cost in this case was a lot of laughs while trying to find a synonym for this difficult-to-replace word. Many of the words we found were absolutely hilarious in the context, "The Mandylion is featured in a __ book.....", I suppose many of the words are hilarious in any context where cool would be used in that form. Some of the words we considered were: refridgerated, unflappable, uncommunicative, standoffish, unresponsive, non chalant, reserved and impertinent.
Also among our amusing adventures was when we were making use of the optional coloring of words in out post to put my statments in blue and Cathy's in green. Since my mom doesn't like me using cool and awesome, I put in (as a joke) cool, in the middle of one of my statements, but it was in green and therefore I did not use it, Cathy did.
