Neo-Definitions… just because

Words

Tired of words and their stuffy old meanings? Now you can use the same words… differently! (Plus I threw a few made up words in there.)

Request: When you go on a quest… again

Pandemic: Too many pans

Transmute: A transgender person with laryngitis

Essential Workers: People forced to work and die to make more money for the elite rulers of the Greedocracy

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

NEWORDS!

August 27, 2013

It’s always more exciting when you use all caps and an exclamation point in your blog post titles. But it’s not just graphic hyperbole – this post is SUPER EXCITING because I am introducing some important new words that you will want to shout from the rooftops (assuming you’re not living in a country where they shoot you for that, which is harder & harder to find).

Be the First to Use these Fresh, New Words!

September 23, 2011

Here are some new words. Many of them come from my 11 and 13 year old children:

A new term of endearment for you to use: Dear + Darling = Dearling

Funcle: a fun uncle (not to be confused with funkle, a funky uncle)

Recyclopedia: an encyclopedia of reused words (or, as my daughter says, an encyclopedia of homophones)

Docktour: a tour of a dock, of course. I guess a Doctour would be a tour of a hospital staff

Insanitize: To make insanely clean

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.
