Here we are at Katdishionary Part 7. Who knew I could stretch this series out into such a never-ending fountain of blog fodder? Well, I did, actually. Because I dig made up words. In case you missed the first six installments, you can find them here:
The Katdish Dictionary Part One
Katdishionary Part Two
Katdishionary Part Three
Katdishionary Part Four
Katdishionary Part Five
Katdishionary Part Six
And now, on with the Katdishionary:
As you know, I love the twitter! Oh sure, it abounds with annoying "social media experts" and spambots who try to ruin everyone else's fun, but I don't follow those types. I mostly only follow cool, real, live people who actually interact with one another. If I were one to make words beginning with "tw", I would say it's "twitterrific"! But I'm not. So I won't. Anyway, today's group of words are all from buddies on twitter. And by "buddies" I mean they are in my column labeled "Buddies". Are you in this column? Don't know do ya? Okay, if I talk to you on a regular basis, you are.
Skymalladocious (pronounced sky-mall-a-doe-shush)
Definition: A term used to describe one of my epic Sky Mall posts as being "docious". I'm pretty sure that's a good thing. Not exactly sure. Perhaps Mr. Young will comment and either confirm or deny this.
Origin: Glynn Young of Faith, Fiction and Friends used this term when tweeting my post,
Backyard Oasis courtesy of the Sky Mall, Part One. Incidentally, this was the first of three in the series. If you haven't read them, you might want to check them out. They're skymalladocious! Or so I've been told...
Katrant (pronounced kat-rant)
Definition: A term used to describe my state of mind when I rant incessantly. What makes me rant incessantly? Martha Stewart, rude anonymous comments, the girl scouts, Halloween costumes, collectibles, Petsmart, Christian retail, The Giving Tree, prosperity gospel, pajama-grams, Ricky Martin keychains, exploiting the homeless, pizza, and the prayer cross, just to name a few.
I have issues, people!
(Incidentally, if you care to read any of my incessant ranting posts, just search "incessant ranting", because I'm not going to link all of them. I don't have that kind of time.)
Origin: Heather from The Extraordinary Ordinary whist expressing her anticipation of the next rant, or "katrant" as she called it.
Connectinator (pronounced con-nek-ti-na-tor)
Definition: Someone who connects people or groups of people to new people or new groups of people. Sort of like a Connector as described in Malcom Gladwell's book The Tipping Point, only more intense, obsessive and adorably annoying.
Origin: Stephanie Wetzel of The Red Clay Diaries juxtiposing my description of her as a "connector" on twitter. Here's a play by play of the action:
AHEM >RT @brandonacox: Tell me one person, on Twitter, you consider a "connector." (however you define that)
@brandonacox @katdish Yes, but besides you. :) haha
@robinmarnold Totally she is! RT @katdish AHEM >RT @brandonacox: Tell me one person, on Twitter, you consider a "connector." (however you define that)
@katdish @brandoncox Well then, @redclaydiaries because she plays well with others and she's got like a gazillion followers.
@redclaydiaries @katdish Thank u for the connector compliment! Of course if I'm a connector, then you're the Connectinator.
So there you have it.
This concludes today's installment of the Katdishionary. Although I do have a bonus acronym for those of who love a challenge. The first person who correctly identifies the following acronym may choose one of the following three options:
Option One: A guest post here on Hey Look a Chicken
Option Two: A guest post written by me for your blog
Option Three: None of the above. You can simply feel superior to everyone else as you bask in your cleverness.
And the mystery acronym of the day is...
The judges decisions are final. Please, no wagering, and Billy Coffey is not eligible. My blog. My rules.
Until next time, use your words. Even the made up ones. Especially those.
