CREATING MY OWN DICTIONARY

Standard

I’ve decided to create my own dictionary, because, well, there just aren’t enough words out there as it is. So, today I’m sharing two new words:

SUCKTACULAR – (adj) 1) when a person sucks at something in a really big way. 2) when something just sucks a lot

example:  That movie was sucktacular. I’m really sucktacular when it comes to yard work.

REEKTITUDE – (noun) The aggressive overuse of cologne in lieu of good hygiene.

example: Man, that guy on the bus had some serious reektitude going on.

I plan to add a word or two daily.

Kathy Ivan has added a new word for today:

CRAPTACULAR – (adj) An overabundance of really crappy ideas or design. Sentence: My current work in progress certainly is craptacular. :-)

Thanks, Kathy!

  1. I, too, make up words all the time. Because dammit, I sat through six years of college (for a four-year degree, because that’s how I roll). I earned it.

    Welcome to the blogosphere!

  2. Hey, Barbara

    Congratulations on starting the new blog. It’s a task to keep after one (here speaks experience, I’m so bad at blogging consistently) but so worth it. Love the dictionary idea. On of my personal favorites is craptacular. Definition: An overabundance of really crappy ideas or design. Sentence: My current work in progress certainly is craptacular. 🙂

    • Oh, if you don’t mind, I’m so adding craptacular to the dictionary, and I’ll use your definition as is. May I? Thanks, Kathy.

  3. Coffeeish- (noun) Beverage with *some* coffee in it (typically, less than 20%), that is otherwise comprised of sugar, artifical flavoring and some creamy substance.

    Example: She drinks her coffeeish through a straw so as not to stain her teeth.

    Welcome to Blogville!

    • Great, Chrisine. Can I add coffeeish to tomorrow’s list? That’s actually how I drink my slightly coffee flavored half-n-half with splenda.

  4. Congrats on your new blog, Barbara. I won’t share my invented words because they usually combine English and French swear words. Not so good, but can be very satisfying… 🙂

    • My pleasure, Maurren. The credit for craptacular must go to Kathy Ivan, though. Now, if you really suck at edits, you’d be sucktacular.

    • Thanks, Nicole. I had lunch with a few friends today, and I shared today’s words. She claimed the whole #5 city bus has reekitude. Ha! I have a list to add. I’m thinking once a week posts? Or, ever few days? Not sure.

  5. Too funny, Barbara. I especially like sucktacular. When I first saw the word “asshat” I laughed out loud. Not sure who started that one, but it sure fits. Great post. 🙂

    • Thanks for stopping by, Marie. Asshat is great! Kind of like assfault/asphalt. It you were a non-English speaker, our language would be really difficult.

  6. Hi Barbara! Congrats on the new blog! I love the idea of creating new words, I do it all the time, too, but naturally I can’t think of one right now 🙂
