Sniglet Of The DayOcrapment- n. The attachment that you send with the second email after being informed that you failed to attach it to your first email.

There are those times when you find a picture or a video online that is so funny or cute, that you just have to send it out, but in your excitement, you tell whomever all about it, and forget to attach the little piece of media. So after a slap to the head or a facepalm, you add the ocrapment. So, whomever was supposed to get the email will now be getting two. One that says something that means nothing, and the actual goods after that. At least the piece you sent them will be worth the little extra bit of bandwidth that was eaten up by the link to nothing. So, it could be an LOLcat, or some other silly meme, or maybe a video of someone running into a pole in the middle of nowhere, or just some cute kittens playing with anything from a walking stick bug to a ball of yarn. Anything to elicit a laugh and a smile. So, the ocrapment is definitely worth the little extra time you put into it, but it still can be a little embarassing. Once the person does open the pic or video, they will most likely forget about the mistake completely.

Sniglet Of The DayFRAZNIT (frahs’ nit) n. Any string hanging from an article of clothing, which when pulled causes the article to completely unravel.

I don’t blame anybody for not wanting to get rid of a fraznit. They are always in your plane of view, and most of the time they are really itchy. The really bad ones tend to be made from some kind of thick nylon thread. You always take a chance when pulling on a fraznit. If you get a few inches loose and tightly bind it around your fingers, it could snap cleanly, and you’ll be done with it. Then there are the ones that are out to sabotage you. These are the fraznits that won’t wind out, but that keep going and going until you hit the seam that is holding it on. Sometimes it might go beyond that, and your fraznitted garment might end up looking like a ball of yarn that was attacked by a cat. If you must attack a fraznit, do so with a small pair of scissors or even a set of nail clippers will do, because that loose bit of elastic might turn into a very loose sweater, knits pants, underwear, etc. if you get a fraznit that does not want to give it up.
