Return of the Verifictionary!

While I was slacking off on my blogging break several of my regular readers hinted they might be missing their regular infusion of entries for the Verifictionary.

(If you don't know about the Verifictionary, go here for the deets. Oh, and try to ignore how pathetically comment-free that post is. I was using the Intense Debate commenting system then, and when it crashed it ate all my comments. *sob*)

Anyway, I tried to keep up with commenting on other blogs while taking a small break from my own, and I collected some more those formerly-annoying-but-now-loads-of-fun verification "words" that supposedly keep the spam-bots away.

gramize – What happens to a woman when her child has a baby. Ex: "Just because I've been gramized doesn't make me old!"

labloozi – When your retriever can't fetch the duck. Opposite of "labwinni."

outdoe – Proud lesbian deer. 

outwish –What you do when you want your wish to be bigger and better than anyone else's.

pugstive – Feeling like a small, scrappy dog. Ex: "I'm feeling rather pugstive today, so don't cross me." 

rodion – Kept moving while mounted.  Ex: "I was ridin' my hoss and didn't want to stop, so I rodion."

sporb – Theoretical eating utensil. Similar to a spork, only spherical. (Though apparently, according to Wikipedia, "sporbs" are also creatures encountered by Samus in the Torvus Bog on Aether. I like my definition better.)

stsand –Patron saint of beach bunnies. 

stskid –The patron saint of winter drivers.

vanitype – Bragging via a keyboard. Ex: "I couldn't stop myself from vanityping about my book deal."

versick – Really twisted poetry.

There you are! I'm open to alternate definitions if any happen to occur to you. Real words can have more than one meaning. Why shouldn't Verifictionary words?

Otherwise, how the heck have you been doing? All is well in your world, I hope. :)


Kerry Schafer said...

Loved 'em all, but 'outdoe' was the one that made me laugh literally aloud. Thanks for making Monday morning fun. I've missed your blog.

Delia said...

She's back! I hope your break was restful. :)

Jessica Bell said...

I've been versick, lately. So much so that I keep missing consonants and joining words together ...

Unknown said...

ahahaha! ahaha! *snork* "kept moving while mounted" I'll be honest here. It took me a little minute before I realized you were talking about rodeoes...and not what I was thinking. bad karla.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

LOL! Patron saint of beach bunnies.

Kimberly Sabatini said...

Yay!!!! Love these!!! I think outdoe is my favorite LOL!!!!

Anonymous said...

Ha ha, love this. I have often made definitions for these words, but I haven't written them down. Love the new game!

Diane Henders said...

Yay, more Verifictionary! :-)

I'm sorry to say my mind immediately plummeted to the gutter when I read your definition for "rodion", too.

And I was going somewhere I shouldn't have with "labloozi", too. You don't even want to know where.

I'll shut up now.

Michelle Wolfson said...

I feel like I shouldn't admit that my favorite was rodion. Cause, um, so many uses for it here in NYC. Loved them all though.

Linda G. said...

Kerry -- Thanks! TG thought I should say it was the opposite of "indoe," but I thought the lesbian reference was funnier. By which I mean naughtier, of course. *grin*

Delia -- It was as restful as "breaks" ever get around here. By which I mean, I wound up nursing my family and myself through really crappy colds. Just goes to show, it never pays to stop working. ;)

Jessica -- Ha! Good one. Hope you feel better soon!

Karla -- Hee! Why, I don't know HOW you could possibly think I would mean something like that. *grin*

L. Diane -- Glad if I gave you a chuckle. :)

K-pop -- Seems to be a popular one. *grin*

Tara -- Join in whenever you like! :)

Diane -- Ha! You aren't the only one. But now I really want to know where you went with "labloozi." *innocent grin*

Michelle -- Hi there! Yeah, I can see where rodion would be a useful word in NYC.

Missy Olive said...

I just think it is hysterical how you say you were taking a break but yet you somehow managed to have a brilliant post almost daily.


I'm hoping this blogging thing will get eaiser like you make it seem that it is.

Thanks for all these definitions. My vocabulary has increased immensely!

Steph Schmidt said...

Vanitype is a real winner out of the lot that I might just start using (though outdoe is a personal favorite).

Teri Anne Stanley said...

I want to know what we need to get those words into the acceptable word list for "Words With Friends". Just sayin'.

abby mumford said...

the entire verificationary is my favorite!!!!!! welcome back!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Vanitype! Love it! It suggests self-promotion Zsa Zsa Gabor style!

Patsy said...

I'd tell you how I've been doing, but I don't want to vanitype!

Carol Kilgore said...

Love these!
My fave: stsand –Patron saint of beach bunnies.

Welcome back - I've missed visiting :)

Kasie West said...

Ha!! My favorite is gramize and outwish. I do like this segment on your blog. So fun.

Michele Shaw said...

These always make me laugh. The other day I got amidit. I said, "I amid nothing! You'll never get it outta me!"

Linda G. said...

Missy Olive -- Not exactly daily, and certainly not brilliant, but I sure thank you for having that impression. :) It does get easier the more you do it, especially if you pace yourself.

Steph -- I suppose all bloggers are vanitypers to a certain extent.

Teri Anne -- Ha-ha! Haven't a clue how to do that, sorry.

Abby -- Aw, thanks. :)

Dianne -- Daaahling, you are absolutely right!

Patsy -- LOL! No, please -- vanitype away! :)

Carol -- Thanks. Glad to see you here. :)

Kasie -- It does seem to strike a lot of funny bones. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Michele -- LOL! That's a great one -- Iloveit! *grin*

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Outstanding. No point even trying to top your definitions; you're outdone yourself this time. (The blog break must have re-fueled your imagination tank.)

Bagman and Butler said...

I'm so glad someone is collecting and making sense of these things! They often make me laugh although I don't take the time to write them down. Can they be now used in Scrabble?

Sarah Tokeley said...

Favourite of the day for me was Labloozi :-)

Crystal Posey said...

LOL. This is so fun!
