Let Me Define This For You . . .

So, a couple months ago I noticed a somewhat disturbing thing--the word verification when commenting on blogger-blogs were beginning to sound like real words! I know, weird huh?

I've been blogging for a few years now and I had grown accustomed to word verifications that weren't words at all--"words" like llprimee and rtrpphl. I must admit that I worry my ability to now decipher some of these words is sign of some kind of mental failing on my part--making sense of nonsensical things--but then I wonder if the opposite is true instead. PERHAPS this is a sign of increased brilliance on my part! If that's the case, then the rest of you need my help to decipher what these new words mean.

So, while in Las Vegas with my family (another post for another day) I wrote down the word verifications I had on several blogs I left comments for and I will not proceed to define these words for you.

Donity--Term used to describe the bathroom. (say the following with an English accent) "I'll have me another pint when I get back from the donity"

Abloatic--The feeling one feels on New Year's morning after spending six hours eating copulous amounts of junkfood rich in transfats. "Roll me out to the car, Ma, I'm too abloatic to walk there on my own today."

Frousi--A derogotory term used to refer to young Austrian women with questionable moral characters--combination of the words frauline and hussy. "Oh, that Marta is such a frousi."

Mendstom--Actual name of the boogie man, but not used very often due to the non-frightening nature of it. "

Comenti--Title given to blog commenters that never leave comments comprised of more than 3 words such as "Good one!" or "Ha, Ha" or "You go girl-fren."--"I guess I shouldn't feel so bad, every blog has a comenti or two."

Panslo--Code word used by mothers when they accidentally turn off the burner while cooking dinner--"Dinner will take a little longer, kids, the chicken was a little panslo."

Gurga--They kind of guy that likes to date a frousi. "Oh, looks like Marta found herself a Gurga."

Glycaliz--A condition often associated with to much blog reading. "Dad, mom's looking a little glycaliz--should we shut off the breaker again?"

So there you have it--now don't you feel smarter?

Yay! I love deciphering the comment verification words.

I'm convinced it is a sign of a mental condition, although I'm happy to believe it's a condition of superiority.

Love it!! Yes, I do feel smarter now. Those were great.

So glad you're going to run a half! Which one are you going to do?

(Does that make me a Comenti?)

I think someone at Blogger must have finally gotten enough hate mail over how hard the verification things used to be and decided to help us out by throwing in vowels and making them look like words. I, for one, am grateful!

Funny definitions! I do like the whole words, too. It's a lot easier on my brain.

Anna Maria Junus said...

These are hilarious! Now I want to do it.

And I thought I was going crazy because the word verifications were making sense to me. No more squiggles and numbers and not knowing if that letter was an "s" or a "5".

hi, it's me! melissa c said...

Okay, I had to laugh out loud at this! You have a talent dear! Too bad you weren't around to help Webster!

I love you! I love your humor! I love your books too. You go girl!
