Yep–that’s actually a word!  If you Google it, you’ll find articles about the Picts–ancient people of Scotland.  The Picts had no written language–this word was written on a stone, and is one of the only known written words (or names) from their bygone language.  It was written in the Roman alphabet, of course, so they’d obviously had some contact with Roman-occupied Britain. 

But nobody knows what besmeqqnanammovvez means.  And this is what draws me to it most.  In fact, I posted it on one of my kitchen cabinet doors many years ago–after getting it out of a book.  Ah–just found the book!  ANCIENT SCOTLAND, by Stewart Ross.  Yet in Googling images related to the word, I encountered something that almost made me forget the idea of this post (how precious a word or name from a bygone language could be). 

And, as is often the case, it has nothing to do with the term Googled.  This is one of the most erotic illustrations I’ve ever seen–not just because the woman is so hot, but because her surroundings are also.  It is especially inviting to me now, during this, the coldest winter I have ever experienced in my life.  If only I could jump in, and join her!
