I told you I liked words ...

***
EVEN IF I HAVE TO MAKE THEM UP MYSELF


My second submitted word, roksok, was accepted by The Urban Dictionary,

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=roksok

and the third and fourth are under review. Here's Number two:

2. roksok

A hug given with a wild sense of enthusiasm.

As a noun: Christine was so excited at her new job she laid some serious roksok on me.

As a verb: 1. Rok me sok me, baby! 2. She makes my bones ache when she roksoks me like that.

Here's number three (recently submitted):

3. slobloggets

Those disgusting little crumbs and bits of dried food that collect in and around your computer keyboard from eating at your workstation. n.

1. Jeff, if you don't clean your workstation, those slobloggets are are going to start growing potatoes!

2. He's the worse sloblogger I've ever seen. (variation)

Here's number four (recently submitted):

4. oringerdings

The mysterious onion ring that finds its way into your order of fries at fast food places. n.

Example: Ding-dong, I got another oringerding Mama!.

I've got a million of them.

ALSO - Wrenched from my witty friend tniassaint. What kind of clown am I? Try it yourself:

Mama, mama, look at Uncle Joe
Doing the hand jive with sister Flo.
Grandma gave baby sister a dime;
Said, "Do that hand jive one more time."

Hand jive, hand jive, hand jive,
Do that crazy hand jive.


Life can be good. It isn't now, except in my head. Of course it could be.

P.S. How many kids would do anything for a dime these days? **LOL**

How many kids these days would know what a "dime" is? Outside of a "dime-bag"?

That was cute. I thought the same thing and planned to ask one of my friends' kids that question.

I also had to smile last week in a supermarket checkout line. An elderly lady opened her coin purse and told the cashier she wanted to get rid of some silver. That girl had no idea what she was talking about, but she was about your age ... just a baby.

Actually, my youngest gives me a roksok every time I give him a dime. He likes change - it jingles. *g* Love the new words. ;)

Heeheehee. A jingler, huh? That's cute. No reflection on your son, of course, but whenever I hear that, I'm reminded of my mom's Uncle A. He took over the family business when his father died (he was the oldest and the oldest always took everything), cutting out all the brothers and sisters of any inheritance (although he had his favorites). My grandmother took care of their mother, an invalid, for nearly 20 years and never got a nickel from him although he literally became a millionaire. I saw him a few times at Christmas when he'd visit my grandmother for about 30 minutes. He'd sit in my grandfather's chair like royalty and she'd serve him coffee and sweets. He almost always had one hand in his pocket jingling a bunch of change, and my mom would get so upset. My gram would never let anyone say anything bad about him, although I know she must have took it hard because he treated her older sister so well. Gram was one of the kindest people I've ever known.

i want to know where the word 'ort' came from

Of course I had to look it up, but it apparently comes from the Middle English word orte, which referred to scraps left behind by animals. You could probably check some Old German words to see if there might have been another root referring to eating or food. I actually took a course in etymology in college and another in Chaucer in the original Middle English, and they were both interesting.

I haven't done any lately, but I have in the past, especially if I happened to have a night job and time to kill. I once worked in a shipyard and one of the foremen loved to do crossword puzzles with me because I had taken 12 hours of Latin in college. Now that you mention it, though, I do recall seeing ort from time to time.
