Tarryerist

He'd called her out on this behavior before, but she ignored his wishes and kept on torturing him like this. When he was not on the phone, she was always elsewhere in the building. It was hard to get too mad at her though, since she was only 2 years old...

Tarryorist

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: tary or ist

Sentence: Jim was a very busy man. He worked hard at work and when he came home, he did some more work from home. He was usually plugged into his laptop, his cell phone and his Blackberry. But today he worked even harder than usual. He was driven and focussed on results. The only fly in his corporate ointment was his wife, Marcia. She was being a particularly annoying, demanding tarryorist today. She lingered around waiting for him to get off his phone and pouted, lollygagged, lingered, loitered and tried to distract him. She whined and pulled on his clothes and tried every trick up her sleeve to get him to stop working today. The harder he tried to ignore her, the even harder she tried to get his attention. He knew it must seem childish to an onlooker for him to keep pretending he was indispensible to his job and for her to keep acting so overbearing. But he had his reasons...two of them. Yes, his in-laws-from-hell were due to arrive at any moment for their monthly 2 week visit from out of town. He was just trying to put off Marcia's acts of tarryorism for as long as humanly possible. In the battle of wills, he was about to become a prisoner of war, without the benefits of the terms of the Geneva Convention.

Etymology: tarry (be near or hang about or wait around) & terrorist ( formidable person who uses terror inspiring methods or coercion to get what they want)

Because she had become a Hovernearkeeler, all the staff would hum the Hava Nagila song when she was pestering him. It was becoming embarrassing to Mervin, who was already happily wed to the senior boss' daughter. The doodling on his assistant's notepad suggestively summed his feelings...she had daydreamingly written over and over "Juwanna Keeler...Juwanna Keeler...Juwanna Keeler". And Mervin thought he did!

Vextortionist

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /veks-STOR-shun-ist/

Sentence: Tonya was something of a noodge when she wanted something. She would employ various tactics to gain Karl's attention, hanging on him or blowing in his ear to distract or harass him, and he sometimes thought of her as a vextortionist. She'd often use those techniques during a great football game, or whenever he was working on something important. This weekend, he was trying to finish his taxes, and for some reason this put Tonya 'in the mood' for some quality-time, and she wanted him in the bedroom... NOW!

Etymology: Vex - to irritate; annoy; provoke (from Latin, vexare "to attack, harass, trouble") + Extortionist - one who obtains something from another by coercion or intimidation (from Latin, extorquere "wrench out, wrest away", from ex-"out" & -torquere "to twist")

Cool, I got to use the word "noodge" in a sentence. - Tigger, 2008-04-11: 04:03:00

great word - Jabberwocky, 2008-04-11: 13:19:00

We all know some Tonyas...ignoring them is very Harding! Good word! - Nosila, 2008-04-11: 22:42:00

Love the word. It's great when you can use a pet word. At the moment my favourites are "Skyscrimble": To go off at a tangent; to fly into space. to make a wild flight from an untenable intellectual position. #2 Tardle: a tangle, anything that blocks or retards. I thinks it refers to vegetation, " tardle of trees" - but a tardle of words; tardle of traffic also sounds good to me. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-04-12: 02:45:00

You aim high, Bob. I just like a lot of Yiddish words — they're often fun to use, and to say, (e.g. schmuck, chutzpah, kvetch). - Tigger, 2008-04-12: 11:51:00
