The Lags n. A symptom of a type of frustration that can happen whenever work or play involves dealing with the Internet. This is often caused by having a weak connection to the Net. It is more likely to happen in rural areas, since service providers tend to not take the needs of rural customers seriously, even though there might be that farmer’s daughter who is a geeky gamer, and spends her weekends playing World or Warcaft or Guild Wars. It can also happen at work when a credit/debit card line is being very slow due to overuse, especially at a business’ peak transaction time, such as a fast food or pizza place on a Friday night. This can also……

Corntamination – Corntamination occurs when GMO crops grow near organic crops, and somehow those things non-GMO consumers thought were safe turn out to have traces of the nasty stuff in them. This is especially for those whom have allegies to GMO crop like corn or soy, or other Frankenfoods (another Sniglet for another day…). When a person allergic to GMOs get these things in their systems, they will become cranky, bloat up, and complain for days about how whomever made the dish they thought was safe tried to poison them. Some days reading labels is just not enough, and you never know when corntamination might occur, especially in countries that have given their lives over to Monsanto and Cargill. As……

Eventitis (event-eye-tes) – The feeling or state of mind that you are in after going nonstop away from home for several days. You see this a lot with groups like the SCA and with people that do Medieval Fairs and fantasy festivals. You even see it with regular event goers and business people that travel a lot, especially if they spend a lot of time outside. It is that feeling of complete lethargy and tiredness that you just can not explain. It is even worse if you are camping in an area that has many fires going and lots of libations that are free flowing. For several days you are in it even when it rains or snows. Usually you……

Bomca (bahm’ ka) – n. A lubricant derived from the salivary gland used for turning book pages. Anyone whom uses paperwork, or even cash most likely deals with bomca everyday. This is the natural solution that you use when you can’t find Sortkwik right away. Bomca will never be available through office supply stores or online outlets, because it is free, just about anyone can make it. While counting test papers, money, etc., simply take your index finger to your mouth, lick the edge, then keep counting. There you have enough bombca to keep you going until your counting is through. If you work in a place where counting money and making change seems endless such as grocery stores, fast……

Anticiparcellate (an ti si par’ sel ate) – v. Waiting until the mailman is several houses down the street before picking up the mail, so as not too appear too anxious. Now that many of us are getting our W-2 forms, and some of us still use the old-fashioned snail mail system to get our refunds, you might see some people anticiparcellating some days this month. It’s hard not to do this, especially if you were lucky enough to get a four-digit or better refund this year. There are all these wonderful material things you have been putting off to buy, like electronic upgrades, videogames, or even just new workclothes, for those lucky enough to be working. That money might……
