A mind is a terrible thing to waste

abstunt: to abstain from an activity thereby stunting growth

assclown: I just like this one. From KD

bioblabgraphry: talking about ones’ life on a blog (alternate: bioblographry)

biocide: unsound ecological practices (I haven’t heard this, but it might already be in use)

bubblegut: The result of drinking too much beer or bad elimination habits

coopernation: What politicians see as patriotism (these days)

drome: A self-employed person who works at home (fr: drone and home)

fantmare: A fantasy that turns into a nightmare (such as coopernation)

fembrane: the largely useless membrane that denotes virginity in women

Farch: Occurs in the month of March when it feels like February (Weedy’s word)

frage: fear followed by rage

frice: The price of friendship

friceless: Often mistaken for a typo (KD) meaning “without frice.”

sleaky: Slick and sneaky behavior; a charming sneaky person

tofood: Anything vegan trying to act like another non-vegan food

Undulush: Lush undulation

wisteria: transitional emotional state between wistfulness and hysteria (not to be confused with the flower)

worshop: To believe that prayers are currency to be redeemed for merchandise or other rewards

As usual, the f-words have it. Anyone else just dying to burn off a few brain cells in the pursuit of nothing? (It started with "wisteria" and I have no idea why.)

Haha, I love the 'worshop' definition. Just about sums up a lot of people's religious motivations I think!

LJ said...

Yeah. I liked that one two. And "wisteria." Don't know what got into me! This was how I prepared to teach my beading class - poor students.

Darkmind said...

I thought of two that you might think were related, but aren't even close:

autobiogravy-the imbellishments added to stories you tell about yourself.


LJ said...

"autobiogravy" Brilliant!
and "biogravy" semen? Yuck, but also very clever.

I really love the Mercury in Pisces-ness of this post.

(And the beadwork below is quite beautiful, lj)

Ariel said...

Er, 'cerebrity' for a particularly articulate and intelligent famous person. Sorry cannot provide examples.

Kate said...

Cerebrity...I like it, though it sounds like a comedy imitation of Japanese-English! (Or Jinglish?!)

LJ said...

Hey Ho Ariel, Kate.
Jodie Foster.
George Clooney.
Stephen Hawking.
Gwynne Dyer.
It's a good term. I was relieved that it didn't take me long to think of a few.

LJ said...

mm - some people have nice clear-thinking brains, other of us have...mercury in pisces.

jessie said...

Hey, I need to borrow one of your labels. The Gawd-Awful one will do...

Here is my new term:

Procrasterbation: Being late because you were jerking off.

Crude but truthful.

Here is another:

Youniverse - The entirety of creation that relates to one specific, narcissistic individual. Used to indicate that a particular person has knowledge only of him or herself -- their universe consists only of them.

P.S. I used the word "worshopping" twice in the last week.
