Grumpause

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: grum pawz

Sentence: They are in there every morning like clockwork. Nursing one coffee for 2-3 hours every day. In fast food places, coffeehouses and other places with free refills and free bathrooms. The Grumpause. They complain about everything...the weather, politics, doctors, kids today and how they don't build things like they used to. They complain about the cost of everything and sort out the world's problems without actually doing anything. The next day, they start all over again...they've told so many stories so often, they can't remember. They are retired...they put in more time here than they did at their jobs. They mainly do this as an S.O.A...Spousal Avoidance Opportunity!

Etymology: Grump (a bad-tempered person) & Pause (a time interval during which there is a temporary cessation of something) & Grandpas (the fathers of your father and mother)

Pouterlimits

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: pow ter lim its

Sentence: "There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it pouter, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Pouter Limits"...order another Latte!

Etymology: Pouter (Someone who pouts-be in a huff and display one's displeasure) & Limits ( the greatest possible degree of something) & Play on Outer Limits, popular sci-fi tv series.

Depresscaffe

Created by: stache

Pronunciation: dĭ-prěs'ka-fā'

Sentence: There she was again slumped over her organic Sumatra-Peru blend latte with soy milk and a double shot, in the upholstered chair section of the corner Starbucks, eyes lined in red and moping about the latest fight with her girlfriend and her relative destitution since the loss of her job in the thrift store that used to occupy this space. She'd no doubt leave again without tipping and return to the luxury condo that her dad maintained for her for some afternoon poolside tanning. What a depresscaffe.

Etymology: depression, in psychiatry, a symptom of mood disorder characterized by intense feelings of loss, sadness, hopelessness, failure, and rejection. caffè, It. for coffee,borrowed from the Ottoman Turkish kahveh, and the Arabic qahwa (قهوة) collectively. The origin of the Arabic term is uncertain; it is either derived from the name of the Kaffa region in western Ethiopia, where coffee was cultivated, or by a truncation of qahwat al-būnn, meaning "wine of the bean" in Arabic; also a neat rhyme with Nescafe (tm).
