OK, back from Art & Soul, Hampton (wonderful, magical - more on that later) and packing for Colorado. I've been working on this list of nonsense and figured it would be a fun thing to share. I'll be back in a few days with pics from Hampton. Yeah, it was great. I love my students! So here are some definitions ...
Dingster: n. Dingbat
Turall: Spock's great-grandfather (on his father's side).
Bist. n. pastry. A small flaky cornmeal roll that is usually eaten for breakfast. Tanzania.
Heriker. n. A musical instruments, commonly played to ward off the Cytoc.
Hishnes. n. A chewy, buttery pastry, into which layers of cinnamon, raisins and chopped dates are incorporated. A traditional treat, it is customarily eaten before a Trolog.
Trologr. n. one who Trologs. A hiker who wears wooden shoes on intense rocky hiking trails. This extreme form of hiking originated in Tasmania but is now spreading through Western Europe and cropping up - where else? - in California. Trologrs customarily eat hishnes before a hike.
Cytoc: a viscous animal with shaggy white hair at birth, the Cytoc's poor hygiene leads to a dingier and dingier appearance. Approximately the size of a Great Dane, the Cytoc's teeth are small, numerous, and pointy. Found in Tasmania, it is a threat to the Trologr.
Personally, I'm thinking that Trologrs are dingsters, although I love the tinkling soothing sounds of the Heriker and, certainly, those hishnes are a good idea when expending so much energy! Bists are usually eaten by the Yoga-enthusiasts in Tasmania and so, I'd probably rather eat that for breakfast. I wonder what Turall would make of all of this?
If your still with me here, congratulations. I probably wouldn't be sharing this if not for my dead brain. I'm off to bed.
