Say What #2

Back in July I ran the initial post in what I think is going to be a series. Today installment #2. Over at Humor Bloggers Dot Com, where they change the style and format more often than her mean uncle moves the furniture around at Helen Keller's place, there's a forum thread called The Humpty Dumpty Dictionary Challenge where members contribute words they've found from a blog's word verification box along with their own definitions.

Here are some of my recent contributions...

When you throw little Jr into the pool to teach him to swim you better hope he's:



The politically correct term for bus boy!


The perfect word verification for HumorBloggersDotCom


What happens when your clambake lasts too long...


What the parachute instructor says as he pushes you from the plane


Few people know that Sting wrote the first draft of So Lonely in the loo. Uh-huh, yep. And when he changed the lyric to "lonely" he had a hit on his hands...

Well, someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
You look as if you're going somewhere
But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly, so looly
So looly, so looly

Now you see why this series only runs periodically.

Mine right now is "ranie."

Which is what the illiterate weatherman in Seattle puts on his forecast for today.

Great series! Sting in the loo is now burned into my brain.

Today's word for me is nongle... where people go when Google is down.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Yeah, some of them are pretty odd indeed.

moooooog: We've got "ranie" here today, too. (Didn't Grace Kelly marry Prince Ranie?)

CatLady: Haha, good one!

Don said…
I've seen those and wanted to ask the burning question, are those legitimate. Not as in kids, but as in actual word verification thingys? They're cool either way...
nonamedufus said…
Megan: I aim to please!

Don: Hey this is a humour blog. Everything's real. Yeah, I right clicked and saved each "captcha" to my pic file. Cool, huh?
Me-Me King said…
Lookie what I got, "argati". I think this is Japanese for "I comment you long time".
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: Hey, OKAY!!! (Yesterday's post is having an impact!)
Donna said…

Skip Simpson said…
LOL!!! I was wonderin' when someone was gonna notice that! Great post! Oh... and my word for this one is "herjuts." Okayyy... "I've met a lot of women, but herjuts are the biggest by far!"
Woke up in my clothes again this morning. Don't know exactly where I am. I should heed my doctor's warning. He does the best with me he can.

Wait. Wrong song.

Damn. That was commicl.
Canadu said…
Great post! My word verification is 'dinsident.' Meaning: A dyslexic conscientious objector, ofcourse.
ettarose said…
I love these word verifications. They are so weird. I always forget to save them. Then when I do I can't figure out a meaning for them. This one is suledr
nonamedufus said…
Donna: Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for stoppin' in.

Skip: lmao

DK: Speaking of commicl, your pretty funny yourself.

Canadu: Haha, good one. See, everyone can play. Thanks for stopping by.

ettarose: You'd think there's be lots of medical staff at the clinic but he was the "suledr" there!
Hey, I was going to write a post about these captcha words! Stop reading my mind while I'm sleeping and stealing my ideas, you ingrant. Ingrant--that's my captcha word for this comment. I think it's a combination of ingrate and rant. Weird, huh? Another nice post, NoName.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
