New Word Wednesday #11

Every time 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 decided several weeks ago 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 words:

dratures: (noun) a slang word used to refer to dentures that do not stay in place and do not work well; as, in "Aunt Matilda got so frustrated that she said, "I've had it with these dratures!" and tossed them out the car window."

gospagra:  (noun)  a busy-body who spends their time spreading rumors about others; as in, "The saying goes, Telephone, telegraph, telEdwina--she's the biggest gospagra in town!"

kindingi:  (noun)  a small skiff belonging to a relative; as in, "George made his way back to shore in the kindingi that Dad loaned to him."

pedneta:  (noun)  a brush designed to help remove dead skin from one's feet; as in, "Ever since I began using that new peneta, I have the softest feet and don't mind wearing sandals!"
tomblo:  (noun)  a sex act performed by an awkward female whose behavior and pursuits are usually typical of males; as in, "Agatha may live in jeans and hang out with the guys, but she is capable of  giving a tomblo that will curl your toes!"
Don't forget that if you use a word in your regular speech three times, it's in your vocabulary forever

I need one of those pedneta thingys right now. Rough feeties.

Martha Ruth said...

Made me laugh right out loud, and that's not an easy thing to do these days. Thanks Eva! I know I can always count on you for a pick me up!

Babes about Town said...

Tomblo. That is genius. Urban dictionary should be snapping that up in a minute.

Will be adding you to my list of Hot SITS titles. Loving it!

Nick Thomas said...

Very good. I have tried to assign meaning to some of those odd letter combinations that pop up, too, but not with much luck.

Oh, and it would be remiss of me not to say Happy Presidents Pets Day - the day after Presidents Day, as I like to call it. In the US, we love our presidents..... pets. See my blog if you’re in the mood for a good ol' irreverent howl.

I was thinking of your 'New Word Wednesday' today when I had to type in 'hortric' as in not only was she well-paid, but had magic hortrics in her stays ... ;-)

Brian Miller said... got me...i had a great sentence going and lost it at that...

natalee said...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!You know I am in awww of your genius....hugs

Gaston Studio said...

Great ones Eva. I too get a bit flustered at the word verification thing, especially when you have to scroll down, again, to click submit.

Debbie said...

Ha! Tomblo! You know I love that one:)

Retiredandcrazy said...

My husband had his own word - a hingmy. It meant anything that he was too lazy to think of the correct name for. Similar to a watzit.

Elenka said...

I wonder if the dictionary's of the world are aware of the likes of you.
If not, they should be.
You could boost their sales all by yourself.

Eva Gallant said...

Terri: It must be the season; I need one, too!

Babes: Glad you liked it! Hope you'll visit often!

Nick: Thanks for visiting...I'll return the visit shortly!

RetiredandCrazy: We all come up with our own terms, I guess.

Out of My Mind said...

You do a good job defining these nawtdawrds.

Here' one for you to define. It just came up today:
"doodyers"....boy that congers up a lot of ideas!

Chris@Knucklehead! said...

My Wordless Wednesday game that I've invented is to try to guess your definition just by reading the word. This week, I got kindingi right on the money and was in the ballpark (no pun intended) with tomblo.

Tomblo made me laugh out loud. Seriously. Which brings us to:


Kristy McNichol (on whatever that "James at 15" actor's name was. Lance something.)

Jamie Lee Curtis (on Eddie Murphy, set of "Trading Places," 1982)

Martha Washington (on George, after removing her own set of wooden dratures, 1773)

Susan Dey (on David Cassidy, obviously)

lisleman said...

wow those words really float my kindingi. You could start a sex advice column just based on tomblo. thanks

Mary at Deep South Dish said...

Everytime I see a word verification I can't help but think of you now LOL! said...

Hubby is in need of a good tomblo but I'm too tired and can't be bothered any more:)

The Frisky Virgin said...

This was hilarious!!!! I love your blog!

Nikki said...

So funny! I'll definitely be back. Thanks for stopping by to see me today.

She Writes said...

I do hate a gospagra!

Al Penwasser said...

Tomblo is hysterical! I have to admit, I was scared at first. Because I thought it had something to do with a cat.

Rhymetime(aka Pat) said...

Wow you really have a thing for the words, you just drop them like turds.
Oh that was a bad thing to think about, but I'm sure you'll stay afloat.
This cat found it very funny, you keep things very sunny.
Enjoyed the read alot, wasn't like some robot.
I can make up words to rhyme, but that would be a crime.
So I stick to ones I know or ones that will let me go to and fro.
As I continue to rhyme on time and suck on a juicy lime.
Great blog indeed, gonna keep reading your feed.

Eva Gallant said...

Outofmymind: I'll include your word with mine next week!

Frisky: I love your blog, as well!

Nikki: Feel free to return often!

Rhymetime: You have a whole other talent! Awesome!
