I'm a Proud Nerd

My Personalized Google Homepage has three words from dictionary.com's Word Of The Day. And because I'm a nerd, I actually look at them every day. I'm particularly excited when I find a new word, although I don't do the whole "Use it three times and it will be part of your permanent vocabulary" thing. Most days. And if I get extra bonus nerd points, I'll admit that sometimes I still remember learning the words in those vocab books we did every week in high school. Well, today, there were three words so good that I cannot keep them to myself. I just have to share. I think the third one is one of my all time favorite words. Although the first one just kind of rolls off the tongue, too. What? You don't have favorite words? How boring of you. You have nothing to get excited about when they show up in a "word of the day".
indefatigable: untiring.
galumph: to move in a clumsy manner or with a heavy tread.
sagacious: of keen penetration and judgment; wise.

Perfunctory and obligatory. I don't know why I love them, but I do.
