Shotmail

libertybelle

Created by: libertybelle

Pronunciation: shaht-mayl

Sentence: It was utterly clear to Bonnie that her ex-husband was sending out emails from his shotmail account last night as she waded through his misspellings proclaiming that he was so sorry they ever split up and that he was sorry that she was such a bitch to him. She didn't know it was possible to slur in text, but somehow Phil had captured the essence of what he had found in the bottom of the bottle of Johnnie Walker. She supposed, however, that it still beat him drunk dialing her at 3 am.

Etymology: shot - a small portion of liquor + Hotmail - a well known site for email.

Gincommunicado

Created by: rombus

Pronunciation: jin - com - meoon - ick - cod - oh

Sentence: Sheila had issues again today. Now on her seventh gin and tonic, she made the mistake of emailing everyone she was angry at or felt had in some way slighted her during the past ten years. She was totally gincommunicado for several hours until she fell asleep at her keyboard. Everytime this happened she would awaken and see the evidence of her rampage as her inbox filled with confused and angry emails, mostly from people she hadn't seen in years. Thankfully, the number of people who answered her was dwindling....but she really bemoaned the fact that she had few friends left.

Etymology: Gin (a type of strong liquor flavored with juniper berries) plus incommunicado which means a state or condition in which one is unable or unwilling to communicate.
