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.

Alikisca: Large breed of dog used by shepherds in the Kisca Mountains.

Unter: The sound you make when clearing your throat.

Blenit: Coarse fabric made from knitting together minuscule strips of old, blue denim.

Weadwee: Small, spiny plants that are so invasive that they keep coming back no matter how many times you use a weed whacker on them.

Ovessess: The brief period of time that takes place after you stop obsessing over something and right before you start that crazy obsession all over again.

You've got some great words too, Ryan! I didn't even know there WERE Kisca Mountains! (Wait, are they real?) You learn something new every day ;-)

My friend is reading Hush, Hush right now and is raving about it, so I'll be borrowing it soon. Have you started/finished it? What do you think?

I love the Kisca Mountains... it has been so long since I tralveled there... (LOL)

Weadwee is a huge problem for me.... they are everywhere!

Thanks as always Ryan! I always am excited to see what you come up with!

I havent told you yet (until now) but you are who I was given to interview for The BBAW Blogger Interview Post for the September 15.

Sheila, thanks so much for the compliments. I got your name as my interviewee as well. It's been so chaotic around here I forgot about it until I read your post. We need to get that done (I just don't know what questions to ask)

Great job Ryan! Glad I can now tell the guy at the Garden Center that the nasty plants I'm trying to get rid of are called Weadwee. Wonder what his reaction will be? *L*

Got a kick out of Alikisca as well. Love those dogs! :D

Ha, ha, too funny, Ryan! Weadwee, so those are the pesky things in my yard! Ovessess, happens to me all the time too! LOL! Great words once again!

Ryan G said...

Ryan G said...

Jackie, thanks for stopping by. I meant to do a return comment to you earlier but i haven't been feeling well today and I thought I did when I hadn't. Sorry, sorry, sorry.

I can't wait to read Hush, Hush and I promise I will let you know what I thought of it once I'm done.

Mel, don't we all :-)

Melissa said...
