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:
coank: (noun or verb, dependant on usage) a slang term for working on the newsdesk of a tv station with a second news announcer, as in, "Brenda was excited to have a chance to coank the NBC news with Brian Williams."
doreosed: (verb) having suffered an overdose of a popular chocolate cookie with a white, creamy filling; as in, "With no one home to supervise William after school, he doreosed and upchucked black and white gunk all over the kitchen floor."
peeleve: (noun) urine sprinkles found on the toilet seat when a man has used the facility and failed to raise the seat; as in, "Doris was boiling mad after she sat on the peeleve after John had used the bathroom."
shming: (nonu) expensive-looking jewelry which is actually made from paste and has no value; as in, "While Anna assumed that Carl was giving her bling as gifts, she was actually the recipient of shming."
taterli: (adjective) having the habits of a couch potato; as in, "Mark was invited to go swimming, but he was too taterli to seriously consider going."
Remember, if you use them 3 times in a sentence, they are in your vocabulary forever.
