Welcome to the Guess My Word blog. This is a place to discuss the words of the day chosen by Joon and Mike. This paragraph is here mostly as spoiler space. Here are today's words:

mike's word: gingham
joon's word: cointreau


i have no idea what happened this morning with the reset script. i would not have thought it possible for the blog to autopost but GMW itself not reset. at any rate, it's up now.


  1. So, the blog reset, but GMW did not? It was 111 here on the 30th, 106 on the 31st....maybe the server melted?

  2. Darn it. Caught between gingivitis and gingersnap, and couldn't make the leap to gingham. Pooh.

    Same mess with coin, coincidence, coho...everything but the right word. Next time I will try using ze French accent.

    1. I couldn't even make the leap to gingivitis--I was between gingersnap and ginkgo. And as for "cointreau," the only definition I can find is for a capitalized brand name, which I didn't think was allowed. Are proper nouns now fair game?

    2. honestly, i didn't know it was a trademark. it's a legal play in scrabble, so it must not be just me who thinks of it as a lowercase word. the same thing happened to kleenex, xerox, google, etc.
