New Word Wednesday (AKA Bloggers Go Green)

Everytime I comment on a website where I have to type a word verification to get my comment posted, I can't help but think, "What a waste! What could possibly be a very helpful word is now going to disappear and never be seen again." With all the attention being paid to "going green" in this country, I think it's time for bloggers to go green and recycle the letter combos used in word verification. (I personally did away with the process to eliminate the waste of words, but some people just aren't as conservation minded!)

I have decided to start a meme called "New Word Wednesday", thus creating a dictionary of new words based on the letter combos that pop up in the word verification process. You may feel free to do the same, or to grab my words and use them. (You know, if you use a new word three times, it's in your vocabulary forever; at least that's what I've heard) Just think, we can learn new words and go green just by recycling/reusing the words that show up at comment time.


Here are this week's new words for your use as you see fit:



bedatrit:  a non-messy choice of snack for eating in bed; as in, "Crackers are not a bedatrit because of the crumbs generated when eating them."

dentic:  causing damage in the form of indentations in an item or items; as in , "Her method of parallel parking her car seems rather dentic."

downium:  a system of energy-efficient underground housing; as in, "In an effort to conserve energy, they moved from a condominum to a downium

nicsadoma:  the discoloring on a smoker's teeth caused by accumulation of nicotine; as in, "He was handsome, until he smiled and his nicsadoma became painfully obvious."

polon:  the art of being perched on a stripper pole; as in, "The crowd of beer-guzzling, whistling, dudes quieted down as soon as Bubbles LaRue achieved her polon."

roleek:  a perseon who is obsessed with the possession and sporting of expensive watches; as in, "Since he got that big pay raise, Bill has become such a roleek!"

tweeneli: a person who serves as a mediator for disagreeing couples; as in, "The court appointed a tweeneli to help John and Martha work out their divorce agreement.

You know, I've been looking EVERYWHERE for the perfect word to describe my driving skills. I should have known I'd find it here: DENTIC! Yep, that's me!

Thanks again for the great laugh, Eva!

Bageezus. An exclamation. Used in place of hard-core cussing. Not sure if it was ever in a word mixer though. LOL Used in a sentence:

He jumped out of the bushes and scared the bageezus out of me.
