An Official Fictionary

The monks have an official Fictionary, a place to honor and preserve those creative moments when the tongue and the brain conspire to create a new word that really should be in the dictionary, but isn't. We offer today our latest entries, and we welcome Fictionary entries from you. We will keep them, use them, be entertained by them. 

thyping: typing with two thumbs, the new form of the now antiquated typing.

projectory:  The arc along which projections move

bloomy: adjective to describe a plant that is in full flower.

simplicated: taking something complex and making it simple

conduce (vt) - to be conducive.  Example:  I have read that peanuts do not conduce to tooth decay.

sbaw (adj., usually enclosed in parentheses) - actually a lowercased acronym for "should be a word."  Example:  I have read that peanuts do not conduce (sbaw) to tooth decay.

Holycowiferous: The famed expletive in adjectival form

Venture philanthropist: A savvy person of means who strategically invests in projects (especially non-profit initiatives) expecting the returns to not be monetary, but dharmic and karmic.

    These remind of daft definitions that I used to read in the irreverent Mad Magazine, and Mort Walker’s cartoon strip B.C.
    B.C. has a very theological bent, and gives words new meaning everyday. I sure the brother monks will enjoy that strip.

    Om Nama Sivaya!!!
