Say What? #4

Every once in a while I'll share with folks "verification" words I find mildly amusing. You know those words that some bloggers use to avoid spambots and ensure you're a real person leaving a comment. If you're interested in the history of this endeavour and in previous dufus definitions just click on the label below. Ready? Here we go...
God's angel inventory

Uncle Sayo's wife

A guy really into cars

Bo knows sports...and this is what he does with deodorant

Moms I'd like to learn something from
(oh yeah like you can do better)

What you ask when you phone your friend whabil and his mother answers.

Moooooog: Had me worried there for a moment. Yeah, I can live with that.

Ha! Good choices for the funny Nomie.

Who knew randomness could be so funny!

Gooooo word verifications!
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Sometimes random works.
Linda Medrano said…
My mind does not work the same way yours works, Dufus. And that's a shame.
nonamedufus said…
Linda: Who knew there were some things to be thankful for, eh?
Miss Nikki said…
OH - MY - GOD!!! I was working on the EXACT same blog idea! And had a collection of those words-non-words with what was to be my definitions... Are you my lost twin separated right in the egg form? I think so. No other explanation.

p.s. I gave up on the idea, you must be the half that tried to kick me out of the egg, bad half!
nonamedufus said…
Nikki: Don't give up. I'd love to see your definitions. Twin? Hell, there couldn't be 2 of me could there?
Don said…
Cute. I look at them and ponder who came up with the algorithm to create them... There are better ways to generate the codes.....

Whabilin? I was going to see if he wanted to go see a movie.
nonamedufus said…
Don: They're such a pain. But I guess they're successful at blocking unwanted spam. Some of the words, though, are just hilarious.
nonamedufus said…
Boom Boom: Whabil's had one silly pop too many and is whabilin on his feet.

These are great! Every once in a while I get a run of really funny ones, but then comes a run of spookily pertinent others, which makes me get paranoid about the Word Verification Gremlins yet again. You should send these to me to put on my sidebar of Word Verification Sniglets:
No one ever sends any in, so I relegated it to a page, but it's nice to see you give them their due.
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: Interesting that more people than I would have thought are into these weird words.
MILLSF!? Bwahahahaha! That was funny. I'm lovin' this series of posts! - G
nonamedufus said…
Georgina: THanks G. It's amazing how many blogs you have to visit before you collect some of these words that are useable. Every once and a while I set some aside until I have enough for a post.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
