Apoc-Zen Project: Zecchino

Apocryphal Zenzizenzizenzic is an old Latin phrase referring to someone who has the uncanny ability to define obscure words with pinpoint accuracy.

(read about the project and accompanying contest)

Day 26: Zecchino: a zucchini flavored coffee drink.

I DID IT!! WooHOO! I finished the challenge *happy dances* Go Me! Not only have I completed something, but this blog is my 200th!!! Freak.Me.Out.

When I originally started blogging (2006 MySpace), I was just writing thoughts, rambles, and weird poetry. Over the last couple of years, I have dedicated posts to Flash Fiction. It's been a nice breath of fresh air this last month, just posting random. It's been a lot of fun, and I have to say, It's made me want to write more... we'll see.

You still have time to post your definitions (I will not consider any definitions posted after Midnight May 1-technically May 2). As per my initial post, I'm going to draw a letter out of  a hat (or plastic baggie with my eyes closed). I'll take your definitions on that post along with a poll (posting Monday, May 2), take a few days to collect votes, and the winner will receive an Amazon Gift card for a Whopping $26 (that's a dollar a day for the A to Z Challenge)--this card will be emailed to the winner to use immediately :-).

For shitz and gigglez, I'm going to post my definitions vs the real deal tomorrow. This should be eye-opening since I've incorporated these words (and my definitions) into my day-to-day life. Kind of sad really.

We'll what are you waiting for; post your definition in the comments for your chance to win!


  1. Your definition is perfect!

    Zecchino is a variation of Chinese Checkers, played with zucchini pieces. When one of your pieces reach the other side, you eat it.

  2. And congrats on making it all the way through and the 200th post! Woot!

  3. LOL! You and Laura are both so funny! Congrats on making it through to the end and congrats on your 200th! Thanks for all the visits and comments along the way. CHEERS!

  4. Zecchino ? Zis is ze man who is very eager to please ze ma'mselle !
    Zis oke is ze keen oke ...


  5. Congrats on your 200th post !

  6. No, no, Laura. It's when you capture another player's piece, you get to eat it. :D

    It's been good, ~2, dropping in over the month of April to see the definitions. You have a wondrous imagination.

    It seems we both started blogging in 2006 - I in early February, 2006 on Microsoft Live Spaces (which they now have converted to Wordpress).

    Congratulations on surviving the challenge. You did two of them, unless I miss my guess.

    Well done.
