Celebarnacle

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /sel-leb-BAR-nuh-kul/

Sentence: Most people felt a little bit sad for Rose, because she was such a celebarnacle, reading all of the gossip rags and watching the entertainment news — she was a real pop-culture parasite. Due to her celebsession, she could tell you more stories about Britney Spears' social life than about experiences from her own, lonely life.

Etymology: celebrity - a famous or well-known person (from Latin, celeber "frequented, populous") + barnacle - marine crustacean that clings to the bottoms of ships (likely from Celtic-Breton, bernik "a type of shellfish")

Barnacle! I was thinking of going for some sort of parasite, but now I'm glad I didn't. This is perfect. - ErWenn, 2008-02-15: 09:36:00

The last 19 words of your sentennce, like your verbot, sticks in the mind! Everlasting creation! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-15: 10:43:00

Tigger im so sorry for using your celebsession, but i didnt know it wa in your sentence! great word by the way! - dalmero8, 2008-02-15: 14:35:00

No problemo, dalmero8. I was debating over using 'celebsession' vs. 'celebarnacle' and, well, I've been thinking about an upcoming cruise, craving lobster, and my mind's been 'out to sea' lately. So I guess that explains my choice... - Tigger, 2008-02-15: 21:50:00

I guess she read all the celebrags with rosey-coloured "barnacles!" Nice word. - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-17: 17:02:00

Spockstalker

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: spok stok er

Sentence: Being a sci-fi obsessive individual, it was inevitable that Venus would become a spockstalker. She affected the terse, logical voice of her hero, Mr Spock of Star Trek.

She attended every Star Trek convention in the hopes of seeing her beloved and hoped for the chance to tell him of her undying love. She was President of every Spock Fan Club and showed up at every opportunity meet her idol. When she finally did meet him face to face, she told him of her adoration and her hope that he would boldly go where no man had gone before.

Vaparazzi

Created by: Banky

Pronunciation: vahp-ah-rot-see

Sentence: The cubicle walls appeared to waver and then fix, and spots began to appear at the edges of Robert's sight. The worst headache of his life was beginning to effect his vision. He tasted blood in his mouth and realized he had nearly bitten through his lip. A peal of shrieking laughter washed over the wall from the adjacent cubicle. "I can't believe she left Ryan Phillipe! He's so cute!", squealed a nasally laser voice. "And did you see Kirstie Alley got dropped from Jenny Craig for getting fat again." the other gasped with breathless exhileration. Robert had done all he could; he had taken the issue to his supervisor, to HR, to the anonymous complaint line, but no one seemed concerned with the fact that the mind-splitting caterwauling day in and day out had prevented Robert from finishing the same report for three weeks straight. He swore he could hear their giggling in his sleep, and as his bloodshot eyes flicked aimlessly around the cubicle, the fabric walls beginning to get closer, as he looked desperately for a way out. A day later the headlines would declare "Lesbian Network Support Pair Found at HP in Apparent Murder-suicide". Photographs showed the Blade server unit used to bludgeon Marie, and the ethernet cable Darlene had managed to hang herself with. As he wiped the last traces of the tawdry note he had left at the scene from his thumb drive, and demolished it with a hammer, Robert thought that the two vaparazzi would be proud. Instead of reading sensational headlines, they were now making them.

Etymology: vapid + paparazzi

COMMENTS:

Frightfully good sentence. Your sentences make me wonder if you are a professional author of mysteries and murder mysteries! Vaparazzi is so fun to say and evokes lots of mind play! Excellent etymology and creation! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-15: 11:33:00

Thanks for the compliment, but I'm just a scientist...I obviously do enjoy writing the stories, though. Quite possibly as much as making up the words, as witnessed by this exceedingly long Tolstoy (in length only, not quality) - Banky, 2008-02-15: 12:19:00

Your colleagues are in for a treat if you write your scientific papers as interestingly and excitingly as you write here! I was stunned you are not a professional author of fiction! - silveryaspen, 2008-02-15: 20:36:00

Like a modern-day Edgar Allen Poe. Creepy, but ultimately satisfying story. Great Verboticism too! - Tigger, 2008-02-15: 22:38:00

Great word and tale! - OZZIEBOB, 2008-02-17: 16:53:00

Tigger, great idea! Did you think of it when you were hanging out with Demi/Ashton/Bruce at Sundance or as a guest at Eddy Murphy's fake wedding or schmoozing with Heidi and Seal at that Versace Fashion thingy?? Do tell, enquiring minds want to know...

Tigger - 2008-02-15: 02:46:00
Oh, the Versace thing! Wasn't that just absolutely fab? All my peeps were there and... Well no, I wasn't actually there, but I uh — I read all about it. I could've gone, but I was still distraught over the Pam Anderson divorce. [Ok, I'm giving myself the creeps now — I hate people who talk like that!]
