Sleepcrease: /sleep-creese/ Kristie came to college wary of the power of a mid-day nap. And well through her freshmen year, she tried to deny the deep snoozes she took before dinner.

Etymology: sleep + crease Created by: Nuwanda.

Revalley: /rev-ell-ee/ Dolores was very depressed having woken with a bad case of revalley.

Etymology: reveille (bugle call to wake up military personnel fr. to wake up) + valley (depressions, channels, cracks on the landscape) (craquelure + crackle glaze + laze --> craquelaze) (manchester + crease --> mancreaster) Created by: petaj.
