Word Verification Balderdash

Word Verification Balderdash is a weekly meme that was started by Sheila of One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.  Sheila asked me if I would be willing to take it over and since I love this meme I jumped at the chance.

Here is what you do. You write down all the word verifications you come across as you are commenting on other people's blogs. Then you 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 an authentic sounding definition of it. Do this for a week and post your best ones on Thursday.

Come back and leave a link to your post and I will add it to the bottom of the post.

Here are mine for this week:

Wazer:  A generic term for a water wizard.  It came into semi-common usage after a unnamed author starting writing second reate romance novels that starred various elemental wizards.  The novels really aren't very good so the chance of this term ever ending up in a dictionary are slim to none.

VowagesTips and or wages paid to members of the clergy when they perform ceremonies that require the reciting of vows rote speaking.  Weddings and funerals are the two main cash cows for them.

Skaman:  The newest superhero to move to New York City.  Skaman, who is a native of Jamaica moved to New York City when he was 19.  He discovered at a young age that he was able to control the minds of those around him when he started to learn Ska music.  By changing the words in the music he is able to manipulate people into doing what he wants.  At firs the thought of using the ability for personal gain but quickly realized he should be helping people instead.

RuBooks:  Fantastic new website that allows the user to insert themselve into their favorite books.  Have you ever wanted to flirt with Mr. Darcy or joing Mina and Jonathan on their hunt for the Count?  Well here is your chance.

Here is a list of some of the other great players this week:

Wow, your definition of vowages is fantastic! I think that one would really catch on.

Your words and your "definitions" are a hoot!

I love the way you have a very complex meaning for everything.

I haven't done this one in awhile. I have a list of words I've written. Maybe I'll do one later!
