New Word Wednesday #12

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!

Coreisma is the only thing 'the situation' has going for him (since both his face and intellect suggest permanent damage from a head-on collision with a truck)-but he's laughing all the way to the bank

Cheeseboy said...

Ha ha! Eva, you crack me up! Seriously, one of the funniest bloggers I know. Gotta start coming here more often.

tsonodablog said...

Good ones! And I've seen a lot of "egall" on the internet as of late.

Brian Miller said...

Coffee Slut said...

EmptyNester said...

Chris@Knucklehead! said...

Ah, I thought you were going another way for "egalls"...

A female eagle.

Simple.

Oh no you didn't! Now I have "Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White" in my head and I bet it will stay there all week. My dad used to always hum that song. It makes me think of days in the sun in Cuba or somewhere exotic and Latin and sunny. And I've never even been to Cuba!

I'm off to work hard on my evatia now.

Eva Gallant said...

Outofmymind: It's that obvious?

IfIWereGod: The Situation was probably the best example of corisma. I agree...it's all he has.

Glenn: You didn't have to drop it; you could have used the words like I do! lol

Terri: glad you liked my definitions!

CoffeeSlut: You must know someone with that problem! lol

Clipped Wings said...

Mucusne...terrible, Eva...hahaha!

Rae said...

Very funny. I was actually presented with a real word today - "sperm". Don't know if blogger was out of gobbledygook words to use or if they were trying to send me some sort of message.

Ooh, these are hard ones this week! Your poor brain had to work overtime, I bet, to come up with some of those!
