Verifiable!

Or maybe that is certifiable.... Whatever the case, through this blogging A to Z, though most people have turned off word verification (thank you, much appreciated!) a few have left it on... Now I believe this is mostly a newbie nervousness thing... not wanting spam, etc. when in reality, I don't think the WV makes much difference in the amount of spam a person gets.  I've had a couple repeat spammers that have caused most of the nearly negligible problem, but I've blocked both and so spam is really rare, and more notably, no more AT ALL than when I had WV turned on.  Word verification makes it so the page has to load an extra time...

That said, I've decided to take the opportunity to amuse you. I've written down several of the word verification words I've gotten this month and made up definitions...


Artomi: my art. With a pretentious French accent.

Entheed: what you should do if a tree starts walking.

Fracy: fancy and racy at the same time!

Hydinge: when it’s more than just a little dingy.


Nuckedi: When you are naked and playing in the mud, you get good and Nuckedi.

Obbledle: It’s like when you are yodeling, but want to be more obvious about it.

Ombeadsm: someone who advocates for jewelry makers.

Pexie: A very buff pixie.

Pholly: what happens to big fat elves who need pharmaceuticals to be happy.

I mean the little girl, if that's not clear
Queuti: When the cutie is waiting in line.

Retembo: what they will call Rambo when he goes on disability.

Sychemeg: what you do to your gullible friend.



And then some time later today:  Victory or Victim?  I will update when I learn if I passed on in ABNA or not. They announce semi-finalists today (the last two announcements have been around 1:30 EST)

I made the list!!!! (Though I'm not sure when it is I will breathe again)

If you want to read, I am entry #19

LOL. Love your definitions of the WV 'words'. One thing that also annoys me is when you have to click into a new window before you get to the comment box. I like to have the comment box right there in the body of the post :)

M.J. Fifield said...

Love the definitions. You learn something new every day.

Good luck with the ABNA...

mooderino said...

Nice definitions. And good luck!

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

I like that you're making lemonade out of WV lemons! Good luck with the results later. :)

M.J. Nicholls said...

Excellente! You'll love the Uxbridge English Dictionary.

Hah! These are great. I've thought of doing this myself. So many strange-looking verifications...

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Good luck today!
I like your descriptions. And I almost never get spam.

Mary Aalgaard said...

Fun definitions. Sometimes those words spark the imagination!

Hart Johnson said...

Thanks, so much, everyone!

Trisha-I sort of prefer the comments on the page, too, but that is another extra loading, so I have it set up this way.

Thanks for both the luck and the kudos!

I've never had SPAM. New A-Z follower.
Good Luck.

Laura Josephsen said...

I laughed a lot at these. I especially love the nuckedi and obbledle. ;)

I hadn't even realized I had my WV turned on when this month started. As soon as I realized it was on, I turned it off.

Katie Mills said...

oh good luck! I loved 'Queutie' LOL too funny

Johanna Garth said...

Those were great! Thanks for the early AM giggle.

L.G.Smith said...

Hahahaha.

I'm always amused by the captchas.

Good luck with ABNA! Fingers crossed.

Old Kitty said...

Hart, some of these made me laugh out loud. Most amusing post I've read today.

San said...

Okay, you are hysterically funny and I L o V e D your definitions and I'm inspired to keep doing this thing I love (writing) and ....too much??

Um. Okay. Well. Hi. I just wanted you to know that I like your blog. So much that I made YOU my V today. It was a pleasure.

Please keep doing what you love (writing) because you ROCK!

Cheers!

Kierah Jane Reilly said...

Most of these made me laugh out loud (and I'm not one to LOL). Nuckedi did not surprise me one bit. Naked and dirty are always to be expected. Other favorites were Obbledle, Pexie, Pholly and Retembo. Good luck with ABNA!

Marjorie said...

Pexie hahahahaha! Entheed hahahaha! Okay you made my day with this post.

jennymilch said...

I like hydinge. And that mud looks niiiice.

Cruella Collett said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You made the list!!!! How fabulous! I'm extremely proud of you :) *pops champagne*

Cruella Collett said...

Oh, and for your information, my Kindle now managed to download the sample. Not sure if it's got to do with being a semi-finalist or what, but it worked! Yay!

Deb and Barbara said...

First off, CONGRATULATIONS!!! omg, that is so very exciting. Crossing all digits for you.

As for verification -- man, I hate it now when it comes up. With your encouragement, I turned it off our blog (and added a stop-point for any comments on posts older than 2 weeks. They go into my dashboard and I check them and allow or don't if they're spam.) We have had no problems. Knock on wood.

Pk Hrezo said...

Ha ha! So funny.

And yay for ABNA!! DO you have your link somewhere here so I can read your excerpt? I'll check it out...

Holly Ruggiero said...

Wow! Oh WOW. Congrats and hugs all around. That's is great news.

You've been luckier than I have. I've run across loads of blogs with the WV still turned on. Don't they know it defeats the anti-spam engine blogger has put into place?

Honestly, I it gave me pause before I hit the follow button.

Hart Johnson said...

Thank you so much everyone, for comments and support! I've been distracted this afternoon, possibly for obvious reasons, and now I have a meeting to go to, but I will be in later to respond better!

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, and i DID add a link to the excerpt up there, if anyone is interested!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Congratulations, Hart. I will be saying large prayers you make it all the way. It couldn't happen to a more special lady, Roland

Helena said...

OMG YOU MADE THE LIST! YOU SO DESERVE IT 'CAUSE I READ KAHLOTUS AND I KNOW! NOW I CAN DO MY HAPPY DANCE FOR YOU!

You realize you're going all the way with this book, don't you?

Helena said...

By the way, 19 is my lucky number and I am very happy to lend it to you today.

Julie said...

Hi, Hart! I'm a new A-Z follower, and I'm so glad I found your blog. I got such a laugh out of this post! I'm anxious to read more of your entries, very funny.

Congratulations on the ABNA list, and best of luck!

Geof said...

A-men to your word verification comment. In reality, it really does not affect how much spam you receive (and trust me when I tell you I am a spam master). I got more spam before I turned it off and that is the truth. It is nice to hear another voice echo my comments, so thank you.

Nf1andprek-whisper said...
