Enjoyed that. TY. Good job it was here coz I didnt click on it in the hgeadlines coz I thought it was about that Gillian Mckeith fraud.

Brings me to mind my favourite chatup line...

and it's actually worked!

If you are saying 'adoxography' I'm adding 'encomium', but only because I had to look up 'adoxography' and on doing so found the word 'encomium', which I had also never heard of.

Thanks All.

Adoxography!!!! As did Chris I also had to look that one up.
Glad I did - seems this particular form of writing traces back to as far as ancient Greece - and there'd been me thinking for years it was just that I was a one-off kind of twit!

Next time I'm asked in my local why I always wear a tunic and sandals I'll tell them about that word adoxography.
