Word Verification Balderdash


Word Verification Balderdash is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World Of Books.

Here is what you do. You write down all the word verifications you come across as you are posting comments on other peoples blogs. You then play Balderdash with them. Now for those of you who don't know how to play, you take a made up word and come up with a authentic sounding definition for it. Do this for a week and then post your best ones every Thursday.

Here are mine for this week.

Outsane: The stage between sane and insane. Just slightly crazed not bonkers.

Carzoli: Small, compact car that runs off of leftover stromboli.

Ovenermi: 18th century Portugese oven that was portable and could always be near.

Sesteris: 1980s Atari game. The object of the game was to shoot asteroids with a b.b. gun.

Fluxe: The region of Wordsmithonia that Aeon Flux was born in.

Great words Ryan!! I love the sesteris - it really does sound like a name that would have been picked for an atari game.

I have my words up if you would like to stop by.

Celia, you are more than welcome. I owe you a few since your blog brings smiles to me all the time.

Melissa, Sesteris would have been an interesting game!
