The Next Rotation - The Universe of Fenris Fox
30 January 2007
 
Quote: I'm guilty! Hehe.

From an anonymous submission to Merriam Webster's Open Dictionary:
Wordulous (adjective): Given to inventing creative new words because one's large vocabulary needs sustenance.
You are so wordulous, it's scary!
Guilty! =xoD

Want evidence? In my earlier post on digital shorthand, I used the word "acronymize."

Though it turns out "acronymize" is not an original idea (indeed, it has an entry on Urban Dictionary), at the time, I did not know a verb form of "acronym" existed.

I'm not surprised it does, though - geeks have a way of finding an acronym for everything. There are so many, that a (now classic) parody even exists:
"PCMCIA: People Can't Memorize Computer Industry Acronyms."
