Facesper

zxvasdf

Created by: zxvasdf

Pronunciation: Faces per

Sentence: She would sit in the middle of pedestrian traffic and be engulfed in emotion, her delicate talent facespering strains of thoughts from the expressions of strangers that streamed past her like writhing eels in a current. A facesper like her had a tendency towards a delicacy in bone structure and diminutiveness in size, as if the swell of emotion splayed on the faces of the world caused the body to shrink inwards. Facesperate attempts by non-sensitives were the subject of ridicule by true facespers.

Etymology: Face (anterior part of the skull) & ESP (Extra Sensory Perception)& -er (one that has)

Psychodrifting

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: SIGH-coe-DRIFT-ing (psychodrifter;psychodrifted)

Sentence: Trudy and Dave were a modern "new-age" couple-Trudy believed she had extra-sensory powers bequeathed to her by her Gypsy heritage, and Dave thought he could brow-dowse anyone's deepest thoughts- even though he regularly lost all the rent money in high-stakes poker games. Through the use of crystals,aromatherapy and meditation, they both became adept at PSYCHODRIFTING the innermost thoughts of anyone they met. Trudy and Dave firmly believed in their ability to PSYCHODRIFT other's intentions - until they lost a fortune in the stock market, were audited by the IRS, and mugged on the way home from the clairvoyant's convention.

Etymology: PSYCHO+DRIFTING=PSYCHODRIFTING..... PSYCHO:prefix relating to imaginary paranormal perceptions;a deranged or psychopathic person —not used technically.....DRIFTING: idiomatic expression derived from "do you get my drift?" implying understanding;alternatively, spinning one's wheels with a subsequent loss of mental traction;to become carried along subject to no guidance or control.

metrohumanx Whatever you don't follow that shot, she rang those words out with all she got With a baby and the laundry in the Chevrolet, well he thought about following anyway But he drove 'em to the strip mall laundromat, In his three day beard and his red man hat Trudy washed their bell bottom jeans, while that baby just sat there lookin' mean ..... Trudy and Dave They're out of their minds..... Well David put a match to a Lucky Strike And the smoke curled up 'round his head how he liked, It made him feel a little mysterious 'Til Trudy said "David honey, what about us?" So he thought about them and those shots ringing out And other things he shouldn't be thinking about Like how it wasn't them at all, just life that was mean And how a twenty dollar pistol made him feel so clean ..... Trudy and Dave-they're out of they're minds..... Well Trudy and Dave, those crazy kids Had a baby of their own and you heard what they did In the middle of a strip mall shots rang out Shots heard all over the world no doubt 'Cause it was there in the paper the very next day 'Bout a couple and a baby and a Chevrolet Who shot up an automatic teller machine Took the money for the laundry and drove away clean ..... song by John Hyatt - metrohumanx, 2008-10-16: 06:00:00

The poofy sleeves, the colour you least suit, the sheer unrewearability of the briddesmaid gown...why oh why do they do it? Do they really think an ugly bridesmaid outfit makes the bride look better??? Think again! - Nosila, 2008-10-17: 00:04:00
