Time Again for New Words from Daisybrain

December 24, 2014

New words, better than the tired, old words you’ve grown used to:

  • Ashamorse [ə-ˈshām-hȯrs] The state of being ashamed and having remorse. This word came from my teenage daughter. A related version: shamorse. 
  • Arborcide [är-bər-sīd] The murder of trees (“We’re not into arborcide – we have an artificial Christmas tree.”)
  • Pizzarito [pēt-sə-rē-tō] Make a pizza on a torilla, roll it up & you have a pizzarito.
  • Afraud [a-frȯd] African email scams
  • Christmasochist [kris-mə-sə-kist] Someone who takes on way too much at Christmas
  • Kwanzaaholic* [kwän-zə-hȯ-lik] Someone who’s a bit over the top with Kwanzaa
  • Vaccumulate [va-kyüm-ə-lāt] To accumulate vacuums
  • Tesslatte [tes-lä-tā] My drink of choice when I am driving my (future) Tessla
  • Placebotox [plə-ˈsē-bō-täk] A saline injection substituting for an actual botox treatment
  • Extravagansett* [ik-ˌstra-və-ˈgan-zət] Any celebration in Narragansett, Rhode Island

How to change numbers:

  • Take all the fours in the world, put them all together, and you have a meta-4.
  • Pulverize a pound of eights and you have pile of particuleights.
  • Seven and eleven are odd numbers, yet they are made mostly of even (seven and eleven). Take the evens out and replace them with the more fitting odd, and you have sodd and elodd. Please use these versions from now on. Thank you.
  • “Nine” sounds exactly like the German word for “no”. This is far too negative for a positive number. From now on, let’s leave off the e, and call it “nin“. It will also help to immortalize the band Nine Inch Nails (NIN), which will, in turn, help us to remember that it stands for 9. Of course, the band will have to drop the e as well. This will make them Nin Inch Nails, and they can get rid of the superfluous part and finally just be Nin.
  • From millipede to millennium, the prefix mill- means thousand. Yet, we use it to denote a number 1,000 times greater than 1,000. From now on, we will be calling this number: 1,000 “one million.” Please adjust your math homework and test answers accordingly.

February 22, 2012

from Poquoson Veterinary Clinic

Is anyone breeding dogs for longevity? They’re bred for every other conceivable trait, why not freeze some sperm & eggs and inseminate with the ones from dogs who live the longest?

Enfathomable Neologisms

July 5, 2011

Most great new words are unplanned – you inadvertently mix two words together or you don’t quite remember a certain word so you make one up to fit the moment. The other day, my wife combined envision and fathom to create “enfathom.” Sometimes, you just can’t enfathom an outcome. I often can’t enfathom the outcome of an election.

Other new words are created to fill up blog posts such as this. Inspired by “enfathom,” I bring you the following list of brand new words, which I encourage you to immediately start using in your daily life:


White + Nerdy

Strange Word Thoughts

October 11, 2010

Here are some useful definitions:

  • Charity: an itty-bitty chair
  • Underwhere?: lost underpants
  • Relationship: A boatload of your relatives

Why is the plural of attorney attorneys and not attornies? Is it the fault of that ‘e’ before the ‘y’? In that case, get rid of it. From now on, it’s attorny and attornies. Of course, if you want to save money, you can call your atorny a-torn-knee, in which case your torn knee can act as its own legal representative in suing for compensation.
