The Prince's Word of the Day: Ne Plus Ultra & Bloviate

I have another double-dip today. I decided to run with both of them because they really sum up my little online kingdom quite nicely.

"Ne Plus Ultra" means "the highest point, as of excellence or achievement; the acme; the pinnacle; the ultimate" or "the most profound degree of a quality or condition."

Totally fitting, right? I think I might add that onto the Royal Seal. Maybe above the cheeseburger or below the middle finger. That should really class that thing up and make the state dinners at Squire's the shit.

The second word "bloviate" means "to speak or write at length in a pompous or boastful manner."

Another perfect fit. That pretty much sums up my entire career as a blogger/writer. What am I if not pompous and boastful. I don't feel like I have found my voice as a writer unless I have complimented myself or boasted at least 10-15 times in a piece.

I might have to get those words tattooed on my forehead like Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.


  1. If state dinners took place at Squires, I'd totes be in politics.

  2. I don't think there is a problem in the world that couldn't be worked out over a pizza with everything and a bottle of dago red.
