WEEKLY GEEKS: Scavenger Hunt (week #8)

How fun! A scavenger hunt for week 8 of weekly geeks. I hope I am doing this correctly: I am going to the blogs of fellow weekly geekers and using the search feature to find posts containing these keywords, and then linking back here with the post that contains that word. The goal is to get the most keywords with the biggest variety of geeks, er, bloggers. I'm starting my post today and then I will update as I add more keywords.

No copying! right? It's a complete coincidence that the first ones I've done are the same as tiny little librarian's, which I didn't realize until I went to her blog to find a word and realized with horror I'd done the same first five blogs as she. How did that happen?
