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