New Word Wednesday #44

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:

barrove:  (noun)  a gathering of friends to go from one bar to another having drinks; similar to a pub crawl, except that it is done upright, on two feet, as opposed to on one's hands and knees; as in, "John decided to join his friends on Friday night for a barrove; however, by the end of the evening they were reduced to a pub crawl."

liquip:  (noun) a witty remark made while under the influence of alcohol; as in, "Normally speechless around women, Rajesh on the Big Bang Theory becomes quite proficient at liquip after a few beers."

mittroff:  (adjective) a political position which is in opposition to Republican presidential canditate Mitt Romney, as in:  "Most of the Tea Party seemed to  be quite mittroff."

spasies:  (noun) a portion of the population, said  to be approximately 20 percent (percentage increases with increasing ages)  who are totally lacking in coordination or are spastic; as in, "As she has aged, Eva increasingly has found herself to be one of the spasies."


subco:  (noun)  a restaurant or eatery which specializes in long sandwiches, known in various parts of the country as Italians, hoagies, submarines, etc.; as in "As more  people look for take out food as a more economically sound option to eating out, subcos have thrived."

Now don't forget!  Use a word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!

OH WOW! ALL of these are soooooo good!

Liquip should be a word and mittroff is just plain brilliant! LOL

Unknown Mami said...

I've made some spectacular liquips. And dry quips for that matter.

River said...

Some days I'm quite spasie...

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Hahaha, I totally have the spasies. Until I have a good cup of coffee in me, my spasies are noticeable to all.

Liquips on the other hand? I excel.

Karen@WaistingTime said...

Love new words but with my bad memory... rarely remember them.

Brian Miller said...

I think there's about another 25% of the population taht fall into the spasies group - Pregnant women. They tend to misplace things like handbags into the fridge and milk into the bathroom cabinet - true story. Another 15% of the population to be added to the spasies group would be mother's of more than two children... at the same time. They tend to loose keys and siblings. And it's really hard finding those keys! So... after all that... I think we max out the majority of the population with the remaining 40% being business women who can't remember where they parked their car, but can recite a whole presentation, complete with projector, with their eyes closed.

I am totally a spasie and proud of it.

Similar to barrove:
Rebar: Get thrown out of one tavern, head to the across the street before last call.
By the way, I lose my ability to liquip after a few shots.

Liquip was my favorite, and not just because I'm a Big Bang fan.

Nancy Thompson said...

You're hilarious! Wherein the world do you come up with this stuff? So creative.

A year ago or so, when I was new at this blogging thing and commenting on other blogs, I'd see someone else's comment about their verification word, usually a definition of some sort. Therefore, I used to think those words were real and I was just too ignorant to know what it meant. DUH!

Loved these Eva so I will have a little practice with these cheriched new words.

I really am a bit out of practice with BARROVE life. Of course when I was a young buck we had our fair share of BARROVES or pub crawls wheich invariably led to us making LIQUIP remarks and getting into trouble with the locals and getting smashed in the MITTROFF (oh sorry I mean midriff! But we did let alchol talk a lot and came out with a load of absolute rubbish with out constant MITTROFF to the local SPASIES who were absolutely paralytic so there was nothing for it but to drown our sorrows and treat ourselves to some scrumptuous grub in a nearby SUBCO.

Ah those were the days!!

Kristy said...

That liquip is hilarious!

Eva Gallant said...

Frisky: Glad I struck a chord with you!

Veg: I have no doubt you are good with liquips; you're pretty good sober! (or maybe you don't blog sober...it's hard to know!)

tsonodablog said...

Good ones! I like the liquip and the spasies. I can relate. LOL

Eva Gallant said...

Terri: I kinda liked Barrove!

Pamela said...

She Writes said...

Eva Gallant said...
