TweetWhat is better than a great distraction when you've been busy all week producing page after page of writing?
Brace yourself. I have a secret and I'm pretty sure it will put me in the category of weirdo. I've always loved words. As a child I liked to make up words. I can remember one summer inventing a language of my own. Mainly, to irritate my younger brother who thought it was a real second language. I could drone on and on and he couldn't interrupt because he had no idea what I was talking about. (Either did I)
So here's the weird part. You know when you're posting a comment you have to verify the word in order to publish it? Well, I collect them. Not all of them, only the ones I find funny, interesting or if they're actual words. Then I like to "translate" the ones that don't already have a meaning.
Here's what I mean:
Say the "word" is sties. Since this is actually a word it goes on my list. Most of the words on my list aren't real but they either look or sound like they could be.
I know. Your asking why doesn't this gal get a life. What can I say? I've always been easily entertained. So here are some I collected this week.
skethor- Found in the jungles of Jambarrow this shy small creature is so skinny you can see it's bones. It forages dung beetles and ants.
pacycho- pronounced pay-si-ko. This is a condition that effects those whose paychecks are repeatedly lower than the value their work. Usually manifests through threatening emails and finally in an all-out-go-postal-attack on payroll.
fartackt- when a person suffering from flatulence tactically releases his in a large group.
thent- An ancient word used in the same way as thus and behold. "Thent it was..."
I know it's lame. I'm sure you don't have anything quite as lame as this that you do for a distraction, or do you?
