Tranxiety

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: trang zye it ee

Sentence: Cella was experiencing it again. That feeling of tranxiety that she only felt while travelling on a train and losing her cell connection. Even if it was only momentarily, she was so addicted to her connections, that being without them, even temporarily, made her feel like a druggie without a fix. The truly sad part was that she was only calling the Weather station to find out the local temperature. It was seriously time for Cella to talk to her tranxichologist about her dependency. What the heck did people do before the onslaught of mobile communications???

Etymology: Transit/transport (to make a passage or journey from one place to another/a state of being carried away by overwhelming emotion;move something or somebody around; usually over long distances)& Anxiety ( a vague unpleasant emotion that is experienced in anticipation of some (usually ill-defined) misfortune;a relatively permanent state of anxiety occurring in a variety of mental disorders)

Blackedoutberry

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: blakd owt berree

Sentence: SONYa Ericsson went into Blackedoutberry mode, when her communicator failed to connect with the Mother ship. In her Qwest for an I-mate, she had gotten out of the Rover, and in one Cingular move had stepped on something Sharp, fell on her Acer, got a Gigabyte on her Vertu and did a Handspring back onto her Mitsubishi spacecraft, just before she ran out of O2. Over the Verizon, she spied a Cricket on a Palm and Samsung the praises of a Nokia No Kiss, NoTel policy before she Motorola'd back to Earth. When she landed safely in the Pacific, all the Siemens gave her a Boost Mobile, so she is now no longer a Virgin Mobile. Wit-DaeWoo! Wit-Daewoo!

Etymology: Blackberry ( a wireless handheld device which supports push email, web browsing, internet faxing, instant messaging, text messaging and other communication services.) & Blacked Out (a momentary loss of consciousness ;the failure of electric power for a general region;darkness resulting from the extinction of lights (as in a city invisible to enemy aircraft);a suspension of radio or tv broadcasting ;partial or total loss of memory)
