New Word Wednesday #36

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:

colooter:  (noun)  A person who assists another in robbing and damaging homes or businesses after a disaster such as a hurricane has occurred; as in, "Ron would not have been able to steal that large screen TV from the appliance store after Hurricane Irene without the help of a colooter.

fezbensh:  (noun) the secret ceremony where a Shriner inductee is presented with his on fez; as in, " Donald had a difficult time keeping from his wife the fact that this coming Friday would be his fezbensh."

humperl:  (noun)   a sexual position which resembles a crochet stitch; as in, "Rodney threw his back out when attempting the humperl as pictured in the "How To" book he bought at the going out of business sale at Borders."

mytudeness:  (noun) a state of self-centeredness often displayed by divas; as in, "Snookie's mytudeness is evidenced by her assumption that the whole universe revolves around her alone."

phlister:  (verb)  to  break out in blisters as a result of being nervous about being photographed; as in, "Celia's modeling career was derailed due to her tendency to phlister before every photo shoot."

Don't forget...use a word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!

I was asked by PJ, one of my favorite blogger buds, to add the following to my post today:

As most of you know, PJ @ Seens From The Backs Of My Eyelids, has a brother, Henry, who lost everything he owned to fire on Saturday, July 24, 2011. The outpouring of help for Henry was so overwhelming, PJ would like to thank you all in a special way.

On next Wednesday evening, September 7th, she will have the computer randomly select three names from her Wednesday blogpost this week.

The first name selected will win a $100 e-certificate to

The second name selected will win a $75 e-certificate to

Thanks for helping me thank blogland, Eva. I really appreciate it.

Thanks, Eva!

Brian Miller said...

humperl - in your book, can we get a diagram on that? smiles.

tsonodablog said...

I concur with Brian on the humperl. I need pictures.

Jenny said...

I love that you are recycling these words... some of them are so funny! I agree with commenter david, up there, you should definitely write a book.

Stopped by from SITS today. Your comment was above mine. Have a great day!

Al Penwasser said...

I sure someone remembers to tell Erl (or is that Earl?). Otherwise, he's in for a heckuva shock!

Laurie Kolp said...

Funny... I'm really enjoying your new words list, Eva.

Dawn @Lighten Up! said...

And now I am trying to picture the mechanics of the "humperl." Thanks, Eva, thanks a lot.

Eva Gallant said...

terri: use that extensive imagination of yours! lol

Dawn: I hope you don't lose sleep over it!

Sue said...

You are too funny, Eva. And now I am following you, too!

Humperl had me laughing out loud. And I love mytudeness--that's something that could be in one of those high-school movies or something. Actually, it sounds like something Buffy the Vampire Slayer would say! lol

Eva Gallant said...

Frisky: Glad you liked my new words!
