Random Sillery

First let me me define "sillery," since I just made it up.

sil-lery (Sihl-uh-ree): A corruption of the word silly; the act of being silly. Nonsense.

Now that that is taken care of, on with the nonsense!

Another word I made up yesterday is "tituated," which is a fusion of "tit" and "situated." It is the process in which you get your squirming child properly latched onto the breast for feeding.

* Update: apparently I didn't create the word Sillery, but did give it a new definition. Check this:
/ˈsɪləri; Fr. siyəˈri/ [sil-uh-ree; Fr. seeyuh-ree]
a city in S Quebec, in E Canada, near Quebec. 12,825.

And here is the best sentence I've read in a long while. It's from a real email from someone I know (Hope you don't mind!) It is great.

"last night we went grocery shopping and there were some people speaking french and they had blonde hair and were looking at vanilla extract."
