two words of two days: remiss and salacious

Hello, due to the fact that I have not posted a word yesterday after committing to post a word a day, today we will do two words.

The first celebrates my lack of focus, the second just sounds so good that it goes around and around in my head (actaully so does the name Bamaga, which I found out only a week ago is a place that exists, and is right on the tip of Cape York in northern Australia, so there you go).

remiss: adj. negligent, lacking in energy or care or attention to duty

salacious: adj. lascivious, lustful

Ever notice how dictionaries just seem to be thesauruses, and that words only have definition with recourse to other words?
