Created by: astorey

Pronunciation: th/ree/em/bowl/ism

Sentence: Margo's productivity--indeed, her very life--was completely obstructed by her compulsion to document every task, thought and reminder onto stickynotes and put them everywhere.

Postitch

Created by: lumina

Pronunciation: post/itch

Sentence: Lea was sure she was finally on top of things. Feeling so organized and up to date on all of her errands, paperwork, phone calls etc. Things that were not done yet, were in line and in order for when she had the time. Now that she was free she invited Tony over to her place for the first time. She was devastated when he took just a few steps in, looked around and said, "Oh man, dude...you've got the worst case of Postitch I've ever seen, and I haven't been vaccinated!" Needless to say, after he said, "See ya when I see ya," she stood there "scratching her head" in disbelief, then made a note to herself "Google Postitch" and stuck it on the fridge.

Etymology: Post-It Itch

Spasticky

Created by: ScrabbledEgg

Pronunciation: spa-stik-ee

Sentence: What began as simple postitillation during the early phase of her project, mushroomed to despostism as she became increasingly fanoteical the closer she got to her deadline. On the eve before her presentation, she went completely spasticky and was found the next morning cocooned in her cubicle, and mummified by her own gluey to do lists. She was diagnosed with minor paper cuts and Post-It Traumatic Stress Disorder and sent home to recuperate. The moral: Visual organizers can be good, but beware, my fellow verbotomists, it's a slippery slope...or in this case, a sticky one.

Etymology: spastic + sticky note
