Pronunciation: kwēzēmāl

Sentence: When Sidney woke up on Saturday morning he dragged himself to the computer to survey the damage he might have caused the night before. Through the haze of far-too-much and way-too late he remembered how he thought it would be amusing to see if he could send e-mails to everybody in his address book. Most of them were stupid or made no sense at all but there, in the SENT folder, was the queasemail - that one that he felt deep in the pit of his stomach. The one that felt like Chuck Norris had kicked him - the kind of kick that makes you expect to find your spleen laying somewhere in the living room. That was when the sun came out. He looked in his inbox and found a number of "huh?" responses and the one that saved him. He had sent THE ONE to his girlfriend's old e-mail address and it had been kicked back. Time to take some Tylenol and get the day started. What had he said to her? You'll have to ask him. His delete key works just fine.

Etymology: queasy (nauseated; feeling sick) e-mail (messages distributed by electronic means from one computer user to one or more recipients via a network)


Not fair! What had he done? Proposed? Told her off? - wayoffcenter, 2008-12-03: 05:33:00

Sentence: When Joe woke up Monday morning he was terrified to discover that he had indulged in intoxicommunication the night before. He had apparently decided to tell everybody he knows about his inner-most secrets. He was more than a little concerned to see that he had dozens and dozens of messages waiting for him. He was greatly relieved to find that his touch-typing skills had failed him. 99% of what he sent out was utter gibberish. Most of the reply messages consisted of **Huh?**.

Etymology: intoxication (of alcoholic drink or a drug; cause someone to lose control of their faculties or behavior) + communication (the imparting or exchanging of information or news)

Pronunciation: like regret, drop the first R

Sentence: It was the morning after the big celebration and Dmitri woke in a puddle of his own sick. Worried that he may have defiled his prized laptop, he gingerly tapped the mouse and waited.
