Ufofrighting

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: u f o fright ing

Sentence: The most recent of Lunar’s ufofrightings came at the time she was searching through a particularly tangled shrub in her garden for what, we can only imagine. Lunar knew there was something lurking in that gaudy intertwine of Hydrangea/Lilac: she could sense a presence waiting to lunge! She pressed her lips together. Her piercing gaze into the shrub was easily interrupted by, high in the distant sky, a luminescent puck, a ufofrighting! It immediately removed her from her paranoidormal search into the greenery. Lunar tore quickly into her tiny kitchen, double-locked the door, pressed her lips together and fixed a piercing ghaze up into the sky...

Etymology: from ufo sighting and fright - to fear the appearance of an unidentified flying object

Doomzdaze

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: doomz-dayz

Sentence: It was 1971 and Inertia was too frightened to go out of doors. Doomzdaze, as well as the haze of smoke from a certain dried flower, hung over her like a cloud--a radioactive UFO-shaped cloud. Lately, even the indoors was terrifying. The Paul Klee prints on the walls were alive and talking to her. "Go to the desert," they said. "Wait for the flying saucers to pick you up." Oh, to have the strength to pack the dried apricots and brown rice in the van! Maybe the Ouija board was right: California is falling into the ocean!

Etymology: From DOOMSDAY, a Day of Judgement + DAZE, to stun, stupefy
