VERIFICTIONARY CONTEST!

Okay, usually I'm the one to supply the definitions. But why should I have all the fun?

(If you don't know what the hell I'm talking about, you obviously missed my previous verifictionary posts. Go here to get the lowdown. If you still don't get it, you can follow the link in that post back to another previous post...and so on. Like an Easter egg hunt.)

Anyway, so here's what we're going to do today. I'll give you a list of verification "words" I've collected while blog-hopping over the past few weeks. You tell me the first "definition" that pops into your mind when you see them.

(Or, obsess about it for hours and come back later with the most perfect definition known to man. Your call.)

To make it more interesting, let's call it A CONTEST. The cleverest--or silliest, depending on my mood--definition will win one of my infamous dumb and/or silly (possibly edible) prizes.

Prize to be decided at a later date. Yup, when you enter one of my contests you take your chances. Yessirree, it's risky business.

Come on, live life on the edge! DEFINE your gorgeous little tushies off! In other words, ENTERTAIN ME!

On your mark...get set...GO!

AMERME

BEDOT

DORSEST

STABIAS

PRANTER

MODIC

FLUMMUT

WINGLERT

PLOTLENT

EXPEA

Rules: Invent a definition for any of the "words" above. You only have to define one to enter, but are welcome to go for all of them. Enter early, enter often! Overachievers will get extra credit.

Since I'll be out of town next week (on vacay at the beach, YAY!), and won't be entertaining you with my scintillating wit (tee-hee...yeah, right -- I can see you rolling your eyes...oh yes I can!), the contest will be open until midnight on Friday, Aug. 26.

I'll announce the winner on Monday, the 29th.

Have fun! And, seriously, don't take it too seriously. ;)
