NaPoWriMo: Can You Spare a Word (Or 50)?

Somebody on my F-List (please step forward and take credit, because I don't remember who it was... brightflashes?) informed me of this wonderful site, During National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), the site will be posting prompts that poets can use to write poems. The goal is to write a poem a day for the entire month.

Last year, I wrote a poem a day, based on my own ideas, but I didn't post the efforts publicly. This year, though, I'm going to share them. I can't guarantee that they will all be gems, but last year, amidst the chaff, I wrote some poems I liked well enough to work into my current poetry manuscript (which yes, I really ought to send out, and soon).

Anyway, as part of today's assignment, we're supposed to request that someone give us a list of 50 words. They will be used later this month in an assignment. I've already sent a request to my sister, but I'd love to hear what my F-List would contribute. So what the heck? I'll collect 50 words from the F-List, as well, and whenever the assignment comes, I'll write two poems.

To participate, look through any existing comments below. Contribute however many words you feel inspired to add, putting a number in front of each one. The list might get off-kilter a bit, but I'll figure it out. Make the words as weird and as unusual as you like (yes, I really mean that); it will make it all the more fun!
