Day 11

They just keep going, the days. But slowly.

Of course, counting down and blogging that countdown doesn't make things go any faster.

I have a feeling that because I am waiting so avidly to find about the MCC tomorrow that I won't find out until Tuesday.

That's what I am going to keep telling myself. Maybe if I convince myself enough it will end up being the exact opposite. But my hoping for it to be the opposite counteracts the convincing of myself and we just go round and round.

New word(s). Decramental/Decrament. I was trying to say Ornamental today, but I was thinking decoration. Thus, the word was born.

Decramental- adj. Pertaining to any particularly horrendous, cheesy, gaudy, or otherwise vomit inducing decoration-eg inflatable lawn ornaments.

Decrament- noun. A decoration which is particularly horrendous, cheesy, gaudy, or otherwise vomit inducing- eg inflatable lawn ornaments.

This is what they would look like in a sentence.

"That giant inflatable pumpkin with a ghost pulling a cats tail coming out of it is quite decramental. I want to pop it with a BB-gun.

"Look at that large pile of decrament on that person's lawn. It is in the form of a giant inflatable Edward. You know, that glittery vampire from that vampire series that leads teenage girls into destructive/abusive relationships (it's only a matter of time before they start making these. We need to be prepared with BB-guns). I want to start a neighborhood petition against the person who lives at that house. And then pop it with a BB-gun."

There you have it. Thank you Jess and Juli for helping me create these new valuable words.

I guess that's all I really did today. Productive, huh?

I have been pretty bad about keeping up on blogs - and, now that I read all your count-down posts, I realize I have REALLY been negligent. I can't comment on all of them - I just wish you could have the closure you want on so many things! Ache.
