Wednesday Word Verification Week Seven

I have my favourite blogs that I visit and try to comment. I know that some people only comment when they're stirred or amused or moved enough by the entry, but I happen to love reading comments and therefore think that adding my own 'out there' might make that particular blogger feel as though they've made an impact somewhere too.

As is my recent wont, I've also been collecting the word verifications and these are the latest that require definition.

Cotylin - the inexplicable need of designers and cheap copy artists to mimic the wrinkled linen 'look' in trousers. "I've got my Cotylin skirt on, so will need to lean up against the wall for the rest of the party so that my thighs don't resemble a beige accordian."

Sodwarti -frequently found at work lunches and celebrations with a shared bill. The Sodwarti puts in just enough money to cover their entree and first drink and then departs early, leaving the rest of the party an hour or two later to cover their unpaid-for lobster main course, seven large-sized screwdrivers and herbed garlic bread.

Conit - the first headlice to make the dangerous and athletic leap from one child's head to another. The Conit is usually an impregnated female with the uncanny ability to fire out eggs like gunshot the second her six legs brush up against a hair shaft.

Oxcre - Elderly dog turds that have been fully dried out by the sun, thus rendering them white, chalky and relatively safe for pedestrians. "Oh calm down Chanelle, it's only an Oxcre you've stepped on and isn't going to do anything to your fancy shoes other than leave some powder underneath."

















Densings - Groups of like-minded (the term is used loosely in this case) people (again, used very loosely) who share the same interests in such mentally-microscopic things that most intelligent species have long rejected as inane, immoral or ugly. See the Liberal Party, Dancing with the Stars, Mick Molloy, meusli bars as health foods and the program director for 'Adults Only 20-1.'

Hangl - the black, gritty slime that lives under the rim of the toilet bowl that no amount of lazy splurting-and-leaving with Toilet Duck gel will ever remove. Hangl can only be eliminated with the thorough application of a scrubbing brush, the user required to kneel down to keep the bowl at eye level to check their success. Hangl scrubbers then often forget to stand up when they flush away the detritus and have been known to get a speck of Hangl in their eyes. Also used as an insult: "Could Sam Newman be more of a Hangl?"

Your comments are always so welcome. Your generosity astounds always.
Oh, and as for Densings - should be added to the OED. Densings are where hangls originate from...

Kath Lockett said...

Thanks Pandora. Hmm, maybe I should put in a formal submission to Oxford English Dictionary.... or are they all just toffy Hangls?

River said...

Ha Ha @ Hangl.
I'm a hangl scrubber from way back. I've moved house many, many times and each new residence gets a good hangl scrubbing. With extra long rubber gloves, oldest ready-to-toss-out clothes and swimming goggles.

Damn the Conit!!! She invaded our house in 2008 for seven months. Definitely put in a submission for your definitions, they are great.

JahTeh said...

'Densings' a collective noun for all footballers who can't keep it zipped, their mouths or their trousers.

My WV is vacraneo, empty headed footballers.

Anji said...

Oxcre is dead on ( - not on my shoes I hope)

G'Day Kath,

You've surpassed yourself this time - I'm still laughing.

My favourite is "densings" - I have encountered so many!

For this comment we have "morgg" - a person whose conversation is so dull that people actually fall asleep as they speak.

:0)

Cheers

PM

Kath Lockett said...

River, I'd already picked you for being a dedicated Hangl scrubber - and that's a compliment!

Vanessa - the Conit has more strength than all the superheroes put together and luckily (reaches over to touch wood) it hasn't leaped over to our place for a few months now....

JahTeh - yep, they're the classic bunch of 'densings' all right, along with the Thursday night pub-crowd who choose to walk home along my street and eat (or belch) Krazy Kebabs as they do so...

Anji - thank you. Due to last nights' rain, we don't have any Oxcre at the moment, so I'll be treading very very carefully.

PlasMan, I love 'Morgg' - we seem to have an increase of that species during election time. Whilst they prefer to be known as 'analysts' we know what they really are..... sleeping aids!

I've sorted the Hangl. I've got a longdrop - there is no rim. Now I just need a word for the glimpse you catch with your torch when you go visit said longdrop in the dark.

nuttynoton said...

love the densings, I have the unfortunate pleasure of coming across many in my work and in life. Morgg is great as well

WV -traistu gone wrong tiramissu or the french version of trays are us!

Benjamin Solah said...

I'd echo Pandora. Your comments are always welcome and you give some of the most thoughtful comments I get.

As opposed to densings who need to get pharrrked
