Sentence: It was utterly clear to Bonnie that her ex-husband was sending out emails from his shotmail account last night as she waded through his misspellings proclaiming that he was so sorry they ever split up and that he was sorry that she was such a bitch to him. She didn't know it was possible to slur in text, but somehow Phil had captured the essence of what he had found in the bottom of the bottle of Johnnie Walker. She supposed, however, that it still beat him drunk dialing her at 3 am.

Etymology: shot - a small portion of liquor + Hotmail - a well known site for email.

Sentence: Sheila had issues again today. Now on her seventh gin and tonic, she made the mistake of emailing everyone she was angry at or felt had in some way slighted her during the past ten years. She was totally gincommunicado for several hours until she fell asleep at her keyboard. Everytime this happened she would awaken and see the evidence of her rampage as her inbox filled with confused and angry emails, mostly from people she hadn't seen in years. Thankfully, the number of people who answered her was dwindling....but she really bemoaned the fact that she had few friends left.

Etymology: Gin (a type of strong liquor flavored with juniper berries) plus incommunicado which means a state or condition in which one is unable or unwilling to communicate.

Sentence: Kimberly was not immune to liquorspondence. Under the influence of romantic ballads and boxed wine, Kimberly not once, but twice, e-mailed Xavier, a yarn sales rep from Vanna's Choice yarns. The e-mails started innocently enough, but as the wine bag deflated into her blood stream, Kimberly started to make provocative suggestions about knots and inappropriate inquiries as to the size of Xavier's knitting needle. In both instances, she concluded the e-mail asking if she would die alone.

Etymology: Liquor (21+) + Correspondence (exchange of words)


I really like this word and will use it when I receive future liquorspondences. - splendiction, 2010-04-20: 23:12:00

Pronunciation: slosh-OO-vre.....(akin to slosh over)

Sentence: Jarhead didn't have a drinking problem. Like so many unfortunates, he simply "sucked at life". A prolific writer as well as an olympic-class drinker, all his talents seemed to merge one tragic evening as his creative thoughts began to SLOSHOEUVRE. The meniscus of his mind began to decant delerious declarations which he hastily posted to...who knows where? Jarhead began to communiquart with everyone who had ever wronged him just before he puked into his keyboard. His writings had a certain claret-y which was apparent only from his side of the bacchanalian veil which slowly descended as the evening wore on. After several bottles of "Old Verbotomy" (aged at least a week), he began typing in some indecipherable code, which was probably for the best, because his enraged friends broke down the door and used a handtruck to get him into detox just before his liver failed. Now he admits he's powerless over alcohol, and Jarhead is the most popular speaker at the 12 Step House, next to the train tracks in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Etymology: SLOSH+OEUVRE=SLOSHOEUVRE.....SLOSH:The tendency of a liquid to move back and forth, often in a nauseating manner;blend of slop and slush (c.1814).....OEUVRE:a substantial body of work constituting the lifework of a writer, an artist, or a poet often composed while inebriated;French Ĺ“uvre, literally, work, from Old French ovre.


If you are bilingual, when you sloshoeuvre your emails, are they in E-nglish/French too? Nice combo and etymology. - silveryaspen, 2008-11-24: 16:23:00

metrohumanx Thanks, S.A. That was my first attempt at incorporating a French word....Pretentious? Moi?.... Wooly Bully-wooly Bully-Wooly Bully! :) - metrohumanx, 2008-11-24: 16:32:00

metrohumanx I'm not bilingual, but I AM tripolar. - metrohumanx, 2008-11-24: 16:33:00
