Z is for Zizzle

Add a little zizzle to your life.

Being it’s the last day of the challenge it’d be inappropriate if I didn’t shed at least a tear. This year has been a ton of fun. If I didn’t get to visit you please let me know and I’ll do my best to make my rounds. With so many participants I’m in awe of all the brilliance I got to witness through this journey. It has been a whole lot of fun putting my vocabulary (or lack thereof) to good use.

On to Z!

The word Zizzle sounds like a candy… you know like a mix between a razzle and a pop rock. Alas it’s not… apparently it’s a company out of Illinois who produces toys and electronics of some sort (yes that’s the only definition I could get for it – and yet scrabble counts it as a word, go figure). So I suppose that gives me the right to make it whatever I want!!!

Jen’s definition of Zizzle: a – flare or awesomeness to one’s self; b – a colorful fruit type candy that sizzles in your mouth.

Now to go and witness some Zizzle I'll be at Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire today!!

Someone very special asked me to do a super fun interview and I can't just say no, she's like freaking awesome!!!!

Mindy McGinnis over at Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire is interviewing me! ME?! Can you believe it?!

You know you want to know more about me (okay, at least pretend you do).

She recently interviewed the fabulous secret-agent over at Getting Past the Gatekeeper who has one awesome blog and I was flattered to be featured on the same blog as said genius.

So... enough gushing about the fabulous Mindy and her fabulous blog... GO VISIT!

Madeleine said...

Good z word, I immediately thought of that candy that pops on your tongue. Or warm drizzly rain, or a small grizzling child. Well done for getting through A-Z a second time. It's been a gas, I loved it! :O)

Catherine Denton said...

I am SO using that word today to wow or baffle some unsuspecting hearer.

Thanks for hosting the A-Z Challenge! I met tons of wonderful people and had lots of fun. It's gonna feel weird to write a blog post on Monday with no letter to guide me. ;)

Zizzle... What a fun word!

Great job on the challenge, Jen.

Cindy said...

Zizzle awesomeness to you!
Happy day.. the challenge has been fun, but I'm kinda glad to be done for now!

Laura said...

I know razzle and dazzle, I've even written about them at least once. Zizzle is new. A great word to remember for Scrabble, though I don't think there are that many zeds in the game.

Emily White said...

That is exciting!!! And I love zizzle. I must use it today.

Theresa Milstein said...

Did you make this word up?!

I'm glad it's over. Truly. I wasn't participating, and I couldn't get to some of my favorite blogs daily. And I may have been visited a little less too.

Happy May!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Zizzle is a word according to Scrabble? I tried it on dictionary.com and got something weird: a wild card for words beginning with Z. huh?

It sounds like a great word, though, and I bet, if the blogging word starts using it more often, maybe we can get it a better definition, you think?

Stephanie said...

Woo! YEAH! WHAT NOW! Actually, that would go better with your Y is for yelling topic.
Anyways, I finished it too, and also made a button for anyone who finished the a-z challenge. So if you feel like you need another award, feel free to stop by my blog and grab the sucker. Great blog by the way :)

Jennifer Hillier said...

Lindsay N. Currie said...
