Created by: artr

Pronunciation: bīˈsek sh oōəl

Dotcompensate

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: dot com pen sate

Sentence: Eddie lived a hermitic existance in a basement bedroom in his parents' house. He had no life other than that lived through his best friend, his computer. He called her Della, because she was a Dell, the romantic fool. Everyday he showered her with things he bought for her on e-bay and amazon and every imagineable shopping website. A fancy mousepad here, a scanner there, software programs to last her a lifetime. In other words, he dotcompensated for the fact that she was the only female who responded to him. Oh sure, sometimes she would freeze up if he had spoken harshly to her or she'd need her hard drive tweaked. To show his affection, he would go straight to a new site and order her something nice to make her happy. Yes, Eddie was one lonely geek, who's mother ever dispared of becoming a granny!
