This is a fine list. I would suggest that you consider adding "knickers" and "lugubrious."

Onomatopoeia: Quite possible the most perfect word ever. Also, I'm a fan of monosyllabic for unironically refusing to conform to its definition.

Hmmm...I'm sensing inspiration for my own blog entry. So much better than writing chapter 2 of The Thesis in the ugliest of all libraries: Lauinger.

I like hippocritical mostly because I get an image of a humanoid hippopotomous. Both humanoid and hippopotomous are pretty awesome as well....
