Hi Everybuddy -

It's been a pretty quiet week. I was able to get caught up on alot of napping.......and pondering. Pondering is always good for any Siberian to do. It keeps the brain from turning to mush. Here I am hard at work, pondering:

Something came to mind. I had once heard about something called Sniglets. Some of you may know what they are. I find them to be rather fascinating. Sniglets are best described as words that should be in the dictionary but aren't. Hmmm. That's sounds amusing doesn't it? Here are some examples -

Blooage (blew' ij) - n. The residue left on fingers after using an S.O.S pad

Cinemuck - n. The combination of popcorn, soda, and melted chocolate which covers the floors of movie theaters.

Doork (dawrk) - n. A person who always pushes on a door marked "pull" or vice versa.

Facon - n. The fake bacon bits served at cheap salad bars

Flopcorn (flop' korn) - n. The unpopped kernels at the bottom of the bag

Wattbobble (wat' bah bul) - v. To remove a hot light bulb by turning it several seconds, letting your fingers cool, then repeating the process.

Interesting huh? This got me to thinking. I'm going to make a list of Doglets - canine associated words that should be in the dictionary but aren't. For instance:

schmoo - the substance left behind on a window after we've looked out of it. This term is not to be confused with Meeshka's nickname of Schmoo since that's with a capital "S" and not a small "s".

Zoomies - the art of running through the house at full speed with no particular destination.

Does anyone else want to add to my list of Doglets? Let's have some fun with this! Happy Friday!

What about furmbleweeds? Those are the little balls of fur that blow across the floor.

Hooray! I love snigglets, and we know a lot about zoomies here in caninaturalism land. I really love the furmbleweeds, too: we know a lot about those as well.

How bout furnolympics? Similar to zoomies, but done in the house utilizing every piece of furniture a furball can bounce off of.
And of course woo can't forget the term made famous by the AO4, Snooters!
