@ossobuco,
I dunno. How do you separate macadamias from little pieces of gravel?

@dadpad,
Sure. Gravel is heavier; we can pan for macadamias.

I think you all are making up words to placehold words that serve as placeholding words for things you can't remember.

@Sglass,
It's all right to be confused. Roger is confusing 'macadam' with 'macademia.'

@ehBeth,
Well you know me... people think I wear those geegaws for glamour but I really do it to keep my magpie hoard close.

Magpies love geegaws.

@Merry Andrew,
Bet that Rocky Road ice cream has overtones of asphalt, too.

@boomerang,
a geegaw tchotchke and knickknack are practically the same thing. Geegaw is sometimes used to describe pretentious items not necessarily useful....depending on the part of the country to live in. there is one other word, gimcrack which usually indicates a showy, useless trinket. knickknacks and tchotchkes are used in either a brilliant or drab collection of collectible crap people like to display in their homes.
