Day Four (belated)

A meme stolen from umbreons!

Day one. A song
Day two. A picture
Day three. A book/ebook/fanfic
Day four. A site
Day five. A youtube clip
Day six. A quote
Day seven. Whatever tickles your fancy

Oh man guys I forget to do this yesterday. Well, that just shows to go you how gosh darn reliable I am.

Anyway, a *site* you say?
Tip of My Tongue is one of those things that makes me pause and take a moment and thank the powers that be for the internet. It's tagline is Find that word that you've been thinking about all day but just can't seem to remember and it WORKS!

When I first got linked to this site (via Metafilter, of course) I had inexplicably been trying to think of a word for about two days: I knew that it meant some sort of fancy dish, as in food, like an elaborate recipe that people in Ye Olden Times would eat, and I knew that it started with a "ga" sound, and that it was somehow associated with rabbit in my mind. I drove myself *nuts* trying to think of it.

Well, I typed "dish" into the word meaning box and "g" into the starts with box and the *first* entry that arrives in the automatically-refreshed results column? Galantine: A dish of veal, chickens, or other white meat, freed from bones, tied up, boiled, and served cold. VICTORY!

Oh, that horrible feeling of having a word on the tip of your tongue, or using the wrong elaborate word when you have just the exact $5 word right there just a teeny bit out of reach... NO MORE! HUZZAH! \o/ \o/ \o/

I will now go peruse youtube for my "day five" entry.
