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...)

Doomzdaze

Created by: readerwriter

Pronunciation: doomz-dayz

Sentence: It was 1971 and Inertia was too frightened to go out of doors. Doomzdaze, as well as the haze of smoke from a certain dried flower, hung over her like a cloud--a radioactive UFO-shaped cloud. Lately, even the indoors was terrifying. The Paul Klee prints on the walls were alive and talking to her. "Go to the desert," they said. "Wait for the flying saucers to pick you up." Oh, to have the strength to pack the dried apricots and brown rice in the van! Maybe the Ouija board was right: California is falling into the ocean!

Etymology: From DOOMSDAY, a Day of Judgement + DAZE, to stun, stupefy
