I Kan’t SEE a Thing

July 23, 2017

Word

Resently, the SEE key on my MakBook stopped working. This is annoying, but it kould have been worse. As you kan see, a ‘k’ or an ‘s’ is easily substituted, and for more formal kommuniation, I have taken to kopying and pasting the letter SEE. This takes up a bit of time, sine I kan’t just hit Kommand-SEE to kopy.

I’m not making this up. This is not an attempt at humor. It is my life. The reason I bought this laptop a year ago was that some of the keys on my previous one, a MakAir, also stopped working. I forget whith ones now bekause after I bought my new komputer, the keys on the old started working again. I try not to have any synikal interpretation of this series of events.

The letter SEE is, in any kase, not only nearly superfluous (we have k and s, but no letter to make that SEE-H sound) but it’s not needed nearly as muth as some other letters, like S and O. But it did get me thinking about the word alphabet. I have long advokated for a new word to refer to the letters of our written language. The word should rightly inklude all of the letters of the alphabet. And so now we have to the real reason for this blog post. It is to introduse readers of this blog and thus the entire world to the brand new word I am about to invent, by the time I finish typing this sentense….

Bwodgflytzjencksquimphvarx

And if you think it’s easy to put all the letters of the bwodgflytzjencksquimphvarx together in a manner that does not violate plausible English sound kombinations, try it yourself. In the meantime, please honor my efforts by pasting #bwodgflytzjencksquimphvarx  onto all of your soshial media posts. I’ll be wathing.

I Apologize for Whatever

July 9, 2017

Hello. I haven’t been posting as prolifically and pointlessly as usual. Party, this is because I have been submitting poems and stories to publications and contests, many of which demand that the work has never been published anywhere, even in an obscure personal blog with a devoted readership of my mom.

I feel bad for my imaginary readers. That is why I am treating you to a blog post in progress! That’s right, I have a partially completed blog post which is neither a story nor a poem, and therefore nobody else wants it. So here it is….

My upcoming Alphabet Post!!!

An apple always appreciates anything advertised as “Astronomical!”

Bees basically break beauty basics because bees behave badly.

Legendary Heroes: Top 5 Overused English Words of the 21st Century

June 28, 2016

I hate introductory paragraphs, so let’s get right to the list.

Legendary. This moniker applies to every famous defunct band, dead entertainer or artist. I think people mean “iconic” when they say “legendary.” In any case, Let’s make a rule: From now on, someone has to be remembered 700 years after their death for them to be considered “Legendary.”

Unlike some new word sites, you do not have to pay me a royalty every time you use these words. But a tip would be nice.

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.

What’s the Difference?

September 17, 2013

Welcome to another episode of…

Presto-Learno

Today: Disambiguating confusing words.

I have compiled a list of words that you may have heard from time to time, even used when feeling brave, but whose meanings are a bit obscure to most people. Well, it’s finally time to get a handle on these often misunderstood members of the lexicon.

1. Bemused vs. Amused

Bemused should not be confused with amused. In fact, you may be amused to hear that bemused means confused. Think of it as befuddled fused with confused. Are you sufficiently bemused yet?
