in reply to What's your favourite non-word?

I tend to use nonsense-words like "gaga" which, from (Swiss) German, I'd probably translate to "pathologically silly". But then, I sometimes even just hit the keyboard to produce random string - wouldn't wanna call them words, now - , and invariably find myself astonished when they prove to be hard to reproduce without moving 10'' closer to the screen...

Sometimes I also just use dialect words for things lying (on|around) my desk, when I just don't feel creative at all.

I quite like the idea to use other people's names. I only wonder whether you could tell from the way you use them, how much you like a person - I for one probably wouldn't use the name of a close person when I'm increasingly - how should I say? - ennervated.
