Yeah, I hate to officially start my blog on a saddening note but I’m sick. Can I just say I hate being sick? Especially since I can’t breathe right now. And to top it all off, our tea maker wasn’t working so I couldn’t have a nice cup of mint to clear my nose.

Okay, I’m making it sound worse than it is. Honestly I’ve been sleeping most of the day, which literally takes hours away from my day. 🙂 If only, If only….

On the other hand, in the few moments of lucidity that I had on Thursday (the day I got sick. I can only remember possibly ten minutes at a time. I think I had a fever.) and when the snow still lasted, I think I decided that snow makes a “scrumnch” sound. You know, snow doesn’t really “crunch” like a bag of chips. It has another sound. My CW teacher is trying to find out what it is and I’ve decided it’s “scrumnch.”

In other making-up-words-news, I have made up another word! It is misgrammitization, or misgrammitizing if you want to turn it into a verb. It’s basically the act of making a grammar mistake or the said grammar mistake.

Last year, my classmates and I made up a new word as well. It is ‘ilchanurite” (ILL-chan-u-write) and means, basically an annoying jerk. Or someone who’s simply annoying or a jerk. You can decide. It’s one of my major insults, besides “You are lower than a pinecone on an anthill”, “cottonheaded ninny muppet”, “go get whipped” and “curse you and the horse you ride on.”

So what are your favorite made-up words and/or insults? Do you think that “scrumnch” is a good sound for snow? Will you use these new words? Have you made up any of your own? Comment!
