Word Verification Balderdash – My Thursday Thing
So for those of you just tuning in… here is what we do (and you can too!) As quoted from my original post:
Ok… I admit it. I am a comment junkie. I love – love ♥ LOVE ♥ to read blogs, the discussions on books, author interviews, bookshelves, great bookish stories and adventures….
but along with loving to comment comes the ever dreaded endless… (dun dun dun dun…scary music)
I know it is a necessity… I get that. You leave a comment, chances are you going to be word verified. Yet being a comment junkie… it slows me down. So to make this a bit more enjoyable… I came up with a plan.
I love word games (not as much as commenting). To entertain myself and maybe some of you… I decided to share with you a little thing I do while I type in the verification. I play Balderdash in my head. Yup. As I am typing in the word, I think if it was a real word… what would it mean. Some come easy. Others…. I really have to stretch the imagination.
The definition of Balderdash: An oft used strategy to elect your own fake definition in an attempt to give it credibility in the minds of your fellow players. …
And here is my list for this week:
CLOOBDINE: A social network originated in Peru. People gather around their computers and “virtual dine” together… sharing what they are eating and using abbreviations for food related events. IE. “B” for burp. “EM” for excuse me.
LAGAZES: A new drug just becoming FDA approved to assist people who suffer from chronic lagging. These people are always a bit behind and have no motivation or desire to catch up.
CARCHIC: Finally a word for her! She is that girl that can do just about anything from her car – apply makeup, eat breakfast, style her hair, talk on her phone and make all her appointments for the day, mix no bake cookies for the school bake sale, and is packing two changes of clothes for emergency events (such as a sporty outfit to cheer the kids on and a dress up outfit for emergency meetings) All of this while looking smoking hot.
KIJACK: The unfortunate new theft ring for off shore criminals. The act of stealing kyaks. People who are victims on kijacking are usually knocked out of the kyak and left to swim to shore where if their cell phone survived the water bath, they call for help.
Feel free to play along at home, here or on your own blog. You can even take the little picture meme I made if you like and use it. Link your words here in a comment and I will add you to this post so other readers may go and check out your list as well! :)
