More Verifictionary Fun! Try to contain your excitement...

Y'all up for a little somethin'-somethin' with the verifictionary?

(Er, sorry. Sometimes I get an irrepressible urge to sound "cool." It never works out well for me.)

Anyway, you remember the verifictionary, don't you? The "dictionary" of those verification "words" that pop up when you try to leave a comment on someone's blog? If not, go here for more info. Because, yeah, this isn't the first time I've subjected you to this.

So, here are some of the new words that have popped up while I've been making my bog rounds lately: 

AERROT-- what happens to your grass roots when you over-aerate your lawn.

AMBLYPEN -- the pen you need when you're letting your fingers do the walking.

DURESSEE -- the person under pressure from the duressor.

JOCKYL -- the nerd Hyde's athletic alter-ego.

METANS -- like vegans, but for meat. They won't eat anything touched by a vegetable.

MUSELIE -- what muses like to eat for breakfast.

REDATIM -- what to do after you date 'im the first time.

REJOCKS -- the ones who didn't make the team.

SCROMIST -- okay, I have a definition for this one, too, only it's kind of dirty, so I'll leave it to your imagination to come up with what my imagination thought up. I'm sure you're up to the task. ;) Stuck? Maybe this will help:

SUBVERIT -- not quite the truth.

UPHON -- like an iphone, only for "u" instead of me.

VOLDSORI -- how baby Voldemort used to apologize (back before he was a total dipwad who never apologized for anything).

Have y'all come across any interesting possibilities while making your rounds?

Um, not here, of course. I haven't used word verification since Blogger got better spam filters. I think the fewer hoops my commenters have to jump through, the better. (Yeah, I know. Ironic, huh?) But, please, don't y'all stop. I need the material!


Summer Frey said...

Wow, Linda, you really outdid yourself on this one! My favorites: Jockyl, Metans (I think hubby is one of these), Muselie, Subverit.

And I'm ashamed to say I haven't been commenting enough lately for any to stand out... *ashamed* *ashamed*

Michele Shaw said...

Always love these! I need to start writing mine down so I can give them to you. Ps: I didn't need the picture for your dirty one. Great minds think alike and all that;)

Sarah Tokeley said...

I think you've hit on an awesome marketing idea - amblypens. For those of us who like to exercise while we write :)

Unknown said...

re: the dirty one. *snort* I didn't need the picture but that just made me giggle even more ;)

and VOLDSORI. Love it!

I was just on a blog the other day, and I got "pness". I typed in 8===D, but for some reason, it didn't accept it. Maybe I didn't make it long enough. Size *does* matter.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Priceless, as always. Maybe you should put all your gems together in a gen-u-wine (for sale!) one of a kind Grimes' Verficitionary.

abby mumford said...

i do so love your verifictionary because it reveals the way your mind works, which i also love, so don't ever stop!

Carol Kilgore said...

I agree with Abby Mumford. I usually find one or two a day. I'm going to send them to you :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Ha! I just had one ... epsycate.

Steph Schmidt said...

I got a really good word verification yesterday: cratils. No idea what it could mean but it sounds swish.

Patsy said...

I'm going to start eating muselie for breakfast - sounds as though it'd be food for thought.

Linda G. said...

Summer -- Thanks. :) And you have nothing to be ashamed of -- I'm amazed you can comment at all after the busy summer you've had with your move!

Michele -- LOL! I figured most of my regular readers wouldn't have any trouble figuring out how my mind worked with that one. ;)

Sarah -- Ha! Good idea. Maybe I better apply for a patent. ;)

Karla -- Great! I love being a conveyor of giggles. :)

K-pop -- Yay! Giggling is good. :)

Diane -- "pness"? Ha-ha! I love it. Also your "synonym."

Susan -- LOL! I'll have to put that in the project queue. Who knows? Maybe one day.

Abby -- Scary, innit? ;)

Carol -- "Epsycate," huh? Sounds like a pretentious drunk trying spit. "Scushe me, ossifer, but I musht epsycate."

Steph -- "Cratils"? Weird cat/rat/cow hybrids, maybe?

Patsy -- Food for thought? LOL! Love that!

Carol Kilgore said...

I laughed out loud :)

Jessica Lemmon said...


And, I share Summer's shame in not commenting much lately. *ashamed*

Jennifer Shirk said...

Oh my gosh, they are too funny!

I'm glad we can at least get some fun out of those things!

Lola Sharp said...

SCROMIST!!! Bwahahahaha! (and EWWWWW! ;)

I love that I'm always guaranteed a laugh here. Thanks for the :D


Adriana said...

These are all brilliant! VOLDSORI! Hahaha! Also MUSELIE -- nice! :) Perhaps I need to stock up on that. My muse has been kind of cranky lately, but maybe if I feed her better, she'll cooperate :)

Tiffany Schmidt said...

Voldsori - lol! Linda, I adore you :)

Keriann Greaney Martin said...

Hahaha! I like the images to go with some of these words. My favorite definitions are METANS, REJOCKS and VOLDSORI. I have a stockpile of verification words of my own. I was planning to do a blog post at some point with my definitions. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Dawn@Lighten Up! said...

I loathe, detest, despise word verification. People! Do away with it! I have, and I get no spam!
So I don't have any good word verifs. to give you.
Hope your mom is well, lady.

Will I get a word verification on here? Let's see...

Wha? You don't have word verifications set up, even though you're the inventor of the Verictionary? For shame! Hook up the word verify on your blog please! Oh and, what's your debut novel about? Or when do we get to find out what it's about? Or have I missed something?
