Part 3 of an occasional series, which I publish whenever I've collected enough new words. And just for fun, I've tried to personalize the definitions a little bit (of course, any similarity to persons real or imagined is just coincidence...) ;-)
Submissions are always welcome!
- tvilr / acronym -- television in lieu of radio
"Honey, did you pack the battery-operated radio for our trip?" Mignon asked her husband as they were packing for their camping trip. "Naw," Jim replied, "Packed the little 12" portable TV instead; I figured we'd go TVILR this trip."
- gynnvzoo / noun -- new kids' show on public television
"Look, Mama!" Tacy cried, "That's a double-whiskered albino tipped ferret!" "How do you know that?" Julie asked, impressed at her daughter's sudden knowledge of exotic animals. "That was the animal of the week yesterday on Gynnvzoo! And guess what, their poop is green!"
- eniessla / proper noun -- the next popular name for girls
In anticipation of Caitlin's playdate with some new girls from day care, Jamie set out some freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. "Yay!" cried Caitlin, "Eniessla and Nevaeh love cookies. With chocolate milk -- shaken, not stirred."
- ophyti / proper noun -- Eniessla's sister
"How was your playdate, Eniessla?" her mom asked when she picked her daughter up from the BlondeMom household. "Good," sighed Eniessla, "although I'd rather have Amelia as a sister than Ophyti. She's cuter and she doesn't bite as much."
- wikrz / noun -- employees of Wikipedia
Dean frowned as he perused the morning paper. "Hey, Amy," he called out, "did you see that the wikrz are threatening to strike? Apparently Wikipedia's game room needs an upgrade -- the air hockey set is broken, Ms. PacMan keeps eating quarters, and the foosball table is missing a goalie."
- npepaiu / noun -- type of food served at a Hawaiian luau
"Aloha!" called Teebs as she arrived at the party. "I've brought some npepaiu to share." "Throw it on the spit next to the pig," replied Elizabeth, "and grab one of those virgin Mai Tais!"
smutdunm / noun -- filtering software for the web
Just before she turned over the computer to her young niece, Aunt Jennie turned on the smutdunm program so that Sarah could not look for articles on water buffalo mating or search for the location of liquor stores within the tri-state area.
