But, I have come up with a cunning plan to keep us entertained until everyone comes back. You are going to like this ......... oh yes........ I thought that we could invent a new language using word verifications.
"What are you on about you daft moose?" I hear you cry.
It's simple. Do you know when you leave a comment on a website and it comes up with a word verification to stop spam? It just seems such a shame to waste these made-up words by only using them once, and then watch them disappear into the ether. So I thought we could assign random meanings to them, and thus build up our own language. A kind of Bloggers Klingon if you like.
Pic.No.1. A word verification example that I nicked from Brahm's blog 'Alfred lives here'
I have now collected three words and assigned them random meanings:
Unlyna: (adj) The period of time that occurs between your placing a last minute bid on eBay, then realising that you have been outbid, but you don't have enough time to place another. Usage: "Man, I nearly won the job lot of pepper spray, but hit the unlyna."
Rupilism: (adj.) The feeling you get when you sit on a toilet seat that it still warm from your predecessor. Usage: "Man, that was just sheer rupilism."
Prome: (noun) Someone [normally elderly] who takes greater than 5 minutes drawing cash from an ATM, oblivious of the huge queue behind them. Usage: "Man, I would have been on time, but I got stiffed by a Prome."
I think I am onto something big here, but I don't know why I included the word 'Man' in each usage. That's the beauty of Blogger Klingon though; we can now select a word which describes 'someone who gratuitously uses the word 'Man' in sentences in order to appeal to youth culture'.
This is gonna be a rolling stone...... trust me, I'm a doctor (oh yes I am!).
P.S. all new word submissions gratefully accepted (Just call me the Samuel Johnson of the blogsphere)
