What with three major projects completed and under my belt last week, the kids going back to school, and horrible cough that has been hounding me for two weeks, I'm feeling a bit less than creative, or thoughtful or interested. So instead, I'm going to test YOUR creativity. And give prizes.

For this post ONLY I've turned on that pesky (hm, useless!) word verification for the comments section. To enter the contest, you open the comments section and create a definition for the word verification word that shows up. I will award one prize at random (yes, even if your definition is totally lame you can still win a prize) and one prize for the one that gives me the biggest laugh-out-loud. Because, oh, yeah, I'm desperately in need of a laugh.

Contest ends when we hit forty comments; you can enter twice. Happy balderdashing.

And now I'm off to change a poopy diaper.

Word verification: dectici

It's like the Volturi, but for decimals. If you get them wrong, they eat you. Or make you listen to Bella whine, at which point you ASK them to kill you.

strul: (stroo'l) n. The drool that comes trickling down your face from eating strudel on the run.
It's best to eat strudel at a table with a napkin and possibly a fork. For breakfast on the run, choose a poptart.

(only two? but this is FUN!)

the white powdery layer you find on your teenage sons' sheets after you realize it's been a few months since they've changed them. You know, skin-lint; skint.

Jenny, You can enter as much as you like, but I will only officially allow you two. I think I was overly ambitious with 40. Yeah, just a bit. We'll amend it to um . . . 15. Then we can wrap this up in the next week or so.

Skint is just gross by the way. Nem's made me laugh, but rejava--both verb forms really got me going. Loradona just might be in the lead.

The perfect sized knap sack.

A note on rejava: A place I worked at trained field service types. In the break room, it was common to have all 6 coffee pots there going at once for the crowd. But, often they were left on the heat, with barely any coffee left in the pots, leading to the weird burning coffee smell.

To fix this, I would shut off all but one burner, then combine the coffee from ALL the pots there into just one pot, and rinse out the empty pots. I don't drink the stuff, but I imagine the sum of the 6 old pots may not have been the best coffee around. One guy did flip when he caught me doing that.

My second entry:
Patida: n. The spot on the tongue words stick to when one says, "It's on the tip of my tongue." Example: "I know that word. It's on my patida!"

I still like my rejava word best, but this one just came to me.

I have to tell you that this makes your comment on my blog (about the expet) so much funnier because I had never heard of this game - specificaly with the word verification - before you did this post.
(I hope that made you laugh out loud at least). ;)

ok - here goes nothing:
pubjus: (plural) a pubju is the newest dog mix/hand-bag size accessory for celebrities. It's a poodle/bulldog/jack-russel/shit-zu. The only thing that exceeds their ugliness is their price tag.
It is rumored that Jessica Simpson is in negotiations to buy one since she lost her beloved maltipoo "Daisy" to a coyote.

A friend of Paris Hilton revealed that when Paris learned Jessica Simpson was getting one she was overheard as saying: "Really, I wouldn't be caught dead with one of those bitches."
