z is for….

Zabaglione, which makes tiramisu possible. Steady, angel, steady….

Zanzibar, both the island and the film. Once upon a time, the island voted to join Kenya, but now wants to leave. Would that have made a better film?

Zephyr. A breeze and a motorcycle (thanks, Unker FF).

Zigzag. Refer zinfandel.

Zinfandel. Grapes, for making wine and making people walk zigzag.

Zip. If I wasn’t quite so round, this is how I would move.

Zip. Causing trouble in clothes for nearly a hundred years now. They will jam, tear and attack almost anything. Even body parts, apparently.

Zing. Vhat people do after zey haf been drinking of zinfandel…

Zara. Expensive fashion or the precocious daughter of a deservedly proud mama ; you take your pick.

Zloty. The Polish currency with a nice name.

Zonk. After drinking of zinfandel, walking zigzag and zinging, this happens.

Zoltan. Possibly the best name in the world. Just imagine…‘Good h-evenink madame, mai nehm izs Zoltan….’ *pengsanpengsanPENGSAN!*

Zucchini. A cucumber; a must with satay, great in salads, makes good raita. And a slice of cucumber over each eye during a nap is very soothing.

Zucchero. Italian for sugar, the most important food group. Without it, I might as well zonk out at my desk. Zucchero makes zipping in a zigzag fashion pozzible.

Zamboni. Unker FF may know this as the machine that makes ice hockey possible. It smooths out the ice rink so that ice hockey and skating shows can take place.

Zimmer frame, which old, frail people use for help when walking.

Zits. The clearest sign that we are young enough to have hormones. Ever seen a Zimmer frame user with acne?

Zither. A Chinese zither (gujin/guzheng?) featured prominently in Stephen Chow’s Kung Fu as an assassination weapon. *sings*
Strumming my pain with his fingers….

Zebra. When rolling downhill, they go blackwhiteblackwhiteblackwhite. Or so people tell me. A quagga looks nearly as odd, more so when it does roll downhill

Zygoma. The cheekbone and usually the last word in any dictionary.

Zowie! Zoinks! Zaparooners! Liuziuliu!

Plinkzan what are you doing? Such a good meme. Zapped my heart and its going zoom zoom zoom.

This over ztimulation could push me into digging out my Zoot suit and dancing like a zany man. It won't be a pretty dance like you would see from a Zulu warrior. Or perhaps I could make a trip to the Zeider Zee.

I have always wanted to drive a Zamboni. The best I have done is hold on and getted dragged around as I skated behind it.

LolexB: Rolex make some very nice watches. Why then are all the popular ones so nan tai?
*omegashrug*

SAmEx: OMG I forgot about you and Zamboni... er, I mean... you know what I mean lah!
LOL! In a Simple America, I would want a Zamboni at every ice rink, then we could spend more time skating....
