The Anonymati Have It

So I'll be expecting some evil hooded robes, or at least t-shirts. And evil secret society meetings (at B Flat, for instance) with evil cocktails. I'll bring the evil beernuts.

Pronunciation: uh-non-uh-MAH-tee

Oh...a place where I can finally fit-in.

Can someone tell me how to pronounce this?

Or is it gonna be one of those things like SCWBI, where certain people say the letters and others mumble out some word version of "Squibi" and expect you to know what they're talking about?

Do I need an ID badge for the secret meetings? Will book contracts, courtesy of EA, be handed out to the first five who show up? If so, I'll be camping out overnight, in a tent, like teens do for new movies.

That's me! I'm a member of the Anonymati! I come here and I even voted on the name, so when you're talking about Anonymati, you're talking about me! I've never been part of a secret society before. Have we decided on a handshake yet?

Darn you, Anonymonomatynymati! What happened to my beloved Slushies? Gone! Lost to the relentless time and tide of outrageous fortune, and the cruel machinations of the unyielding and unfeeling Anonymati!

I like Anonymati. Makes me feel glamorously mysterious. Or mysteriously glamorous. Or just glamourous and mysterious at the same time.

YAY! We've been named!

Now that you've adopted us, our expectation of treats may go up slightly. Chocolates, cheeses, free manuscript critiques...

Don't know about anyone else, but I pronounce it: Anon as in anonymous, long e, ma as in Ma Ingalls, and tea as in the drink.

Put together you get: Anon-e-mah-tea.

Any clearer than mud?

Awesome.

Naughty anonymati

I think we definitely need cloaks or robes or capes or some other form of long, flowy, mysterious covering.

LOL Colorado!

Anonymatic anonymagic!

(Bye bye mice.)

Love the coat of arms :)

I have the hooded robe already - as long as you are happy with cyan? ;)

*still working out 7 compass points and how to get her fingers to do the handshakes*

Great stuff there, EA!

I think Chris is on to something here. Treats!

Okay, but since it's a Latiform word, what is the singular: Anonymatus for males, Anonymatae for females?

If one of us is a female spy is she an Anonymatae Hari?

And should I now refer to my wife as my Anonymate?

[Personally I liked someone's suggestion of "nonnies", but it didn't make the vote]

ae said...

Anonymatae Hari?

Hoo boy!

"Oh what a wicked girl was she. That's the kind of girl I'll never be!"
