Astralphobia

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: as tral fo beeya

Sentence: Stella had but one fear to live with...astralphobia. She was convinced that aliens were invading our planet and that one by one from stars and moons and planets and galaxies, extra-terrestrials were planning an invasion of our world. This fear may in part have been fuelled by films like Independence Day, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and E.T. In fact, she was sure that some space travellers were already amoung us. How else could you explain Donald Trump's Hair or Paris Hilton? She had heard that some were coming here to procreate with humans to help infiltrate our society. She decided that she would never join an on-line dating service just in case. It would be just her luck to meet someone from Uranus or other disgusting places!

Etymology: astral (to do with the stars or heavens) & phobia ( fear of...)

Invisablitations

Created by: abrakadeborah

Pronunciation: In-vis-a-bli-tay-shuns

Sentence: Carla was quite the strange one. She often times would speak of "invisablitations" of seeing her cat fly at night and apparitions of things flying around during the day. Nobody ever believed her as she was constantly dodging invisible objects and swatting into thin air at objects nobody else could see. She would scream out loud for no apparent reason...No wonder she thought her cat could fly as it would often leap across the room! Poor Tomcat was constantly startled by Carla's "invisablitationous" outbursts that he was leaping from place to place to get away from her. Carla's best friend Harry often stood in calmness as he watched her scream and swat at invisible objects.

Etymology: Invisible & abilities in action; to flail arms,snort,scream and act out at unknown objects flying around.

Uiffyo

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: U iff ee OH

Sentence: She was paranoid of the paranormal and believed she had a special gift, a seventh sense she called her uiffyo: that iffy sense that she was not alone and she was being watched, maybe even stalked by UFOs. She felt that sense of possibility every day. Every mosquito bite was a possible entry mark from an abductor, every star or airplane above could have been a UFO. But her friends were getting tired of her obsessive and weird behaviour. They all agreed that her uiffyo sense was getting uiffyold.

Etymology: UFO: iffy: uncertain; at issue, in doubt

COMMENTS:

Maybe she could sing in the dark? "O, Yipee Ki Yay, U iffy I O" - readerwriter, 2009-03-05: 11:37:00
