Residurate: /Rez-id-you-rate/ Anne's face dropped when she opened the fridge and found it full of near-empty and empty beer bottles, peanut butter jars with a smear left in them and a juice bottle with a few millilitres of orange in the bottom. "Aarrgh! You residurate!" she yelled, throwing the almost empty juice carton at Joe's limp form on the floor. "Ugh. I didn't get to take the rubbish out... could you?" he mumbled slurringly, scratching himself. "Not on your life!" was all she could think to say without cursing. Etymology: Residue - icky remains of a substance; Refridgerate - store in a cold place; You - as opposed to me, since the reason I do it is because I don't want to be the one cleaning it or disposing of it.

Scrapulator: /Scrap you later/ Luke was one of those people who would actually create work for himself procrastinating over household chores. Finding a condiment vessel in his pantry that had any more than a scrap of contents was nigh on impossible. When Sally went looking for Vegemite and found not one but seven almost empty jars she exclaimed "Luke! When *will* you scrap all this detritus?" To which Luke replied "Oh, I'll do it later". And thus his nickname was born. Etymology: The mindset of the scrapulator: eh, I'll scrap you later Created by: emdeejay.

Also the detritus being 'scrap' and the person being one who scraps.. leaving them all over. - dochanne, 2009-05-15: 04:17:00

Remnut: /rihm-nuht/ With great pride, her widower dad had always considered himself frugal--he paid his bills on time, he didn't buy anything on credit, he saved every nut and bolt from every house he ever lived in, he had re-soled shoes from the 1960's he might wear again. It carried over into the fridge which she cleaned when she felt brave enough. In that cold and usually dark place, she would find shriveled halves of tomatoes, mold-laden cheese, jars with one or two olives or pickles floating around, several containers with an inch of milk and unknown liquid remaining, heels of bread, packaged globs of what used to be spinach. She sighed at these remnants of meals past. Her dear old dad was a remnut! At least he was making good food choices. Etymology: Using REMNANT, meaning a usually small part or trace remaining + NUT, meaning a foolish, eccentric or crazy person Created by: readerwriter.
