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:
corisma: (noun) possessing washboard abs; as in, "When Carl removed his shirt, Andrea was immediately smitten with his corisma."
egall: (noun) online audacity; as in, "Mary had the egall to accuse me in her blog post of cheating on my husband, when she knows it's not true."
evatia: (noun) having a humorous blogging style, similar to a well-known blogger from Maine; as in, "Stella worked hard to achieve a certain evatia in her posts."
mucusne: (adjective) resembling a mucus faucet; as in, "The trouble with Phil is he has a mucusne nose--it's always dripping."
unchas: (verb) performing the cha-cha so badly as to mangle it; as in, "Paul's intentions are good, but everytime he gets on the dance floor, he unchas "Cherry Pink and Appleblossom White!"
There you go folks! Use them 3 times and they are in your vocabulary forever!
