I caught news off Twitter about two new themes available for WordPress. I admit I like Parament. I don’t want to like it. It looks like Ars Technica’s color scheme. But it does look better than the Twenty Eleven I was previously using. So I convinced myself, “Why be a…”, funny, I can’t think of a word to put there. I want something to the effect of ‘prude’, but this has got nothing to do with sex. It’s basically, “Why be anal?”, but I’d rather a word that isn’t slang.
Okay, here’s a new word from the Thesaurus: dissentient. I haven’t seen it in context, but the definition,
Adjective: In opposition to a majority or official opinion.
Noun: A person who opposes a majority or official opinion.
, seems to fit, so I’m going to try it: Why be dissentient? Cute, Firefox’s inline spell checker is flagging it as misspelled, I guess because it’s not in it’s dictionary.
