Word Fun

Wednesday, January 14th, 2009

A friend of mine sent me this: the Washington Post’s Mensa Invitational, which asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. I found it so amusing I thought I’d repeat it here for my readers. Feel free to add you own in the comments section.

Here are the winners:

  1. Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time.
  2. Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.
  3. Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.
  4. Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future.
  5. Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high
  6. Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it.
  7. Inoculatte: To take coffee intravenously when you are running late.
  8. Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)
  9. Karmageddon: It’s like, when everybody is sending off all these really bad vibes, right? And then, like, the Earth explodes and it’s like, a serious bummer.
  10. Decafalon (n.): The grueling event of getting through the day consuming only things that are good for you
  11. Glibido: All talk and no action.
  12. Dopeler Effect: The tendency of stupid ideas to seem smarter when they come at you rapidly.
  13. Arachnoleptic Fit (n.): The frantic dance performed just after you’ve accidentally walked through a spider web.
  14. Beelzebug (n.): Satan in the form of a mosquito, that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.
  15. Caterpallor (n.): The color you turn after finding half a worm in the fruit you’re eating.

Poetry and other inane writings

Friday, June 6th, 2008

From time to time I’ll add a character bio or other background stuff for the Gate of Galithonel and the Queen of Peace series, short stories, or poetry. (I don’t promise it’ll be good but it should be interesting!) Please feel free to make comments, submit your own poetry and, in general, have fun!
