Balderdash (8)

Word Verification Balderdash
is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.
This is very easy to do.

If you comment on blogs you can do this too.
Write down all the word verifications you get while posting comments on other peoples blogs.
You then play Balderdash with them.
In case you don't know how to play, you take the made up word and come up with an authentic sounding definition for it.

Do this for a week and then post your best or favorite ones every Thursday.

Here are mine for this week:
antera - the internal antenna in the radios, cell phones, and many other mechanical devices that use to have actual antennas years ago.
zinch - the quick process of doing something without a thought - like a reflex.
bratisat - an adults moment we still have wehn we want something so badly we act like a little bratty child.
josterni - the sudden jerk you make when you have been day-dreaming then suddenly jump back into the current real world.
targa - the gooey bubble stuff from the black topped parking lots or roads in the summer time from the heat and sun that gets stuck, worse than gum, on the bottom of your shoes and track into the house.


  1. Targa can be soooo annoying! And I think I've also been guilty of a bratisat moment or two! *L*

    Liked the words you came up with this week! Think I'm going to have to visit a lot more blogs just for the words now!

  2. Great words this week Mel. I loved josterni as I experience them quite a bit.

  3. An interesting idea. I'm afraid to say that I had a very 'bratisat' moment earlier this week though I didn't know it was that at the time.

  4. I have many a bratisat moments and do the josterni quite often (especially at work).

    Mine are here and I'll link back to yours.

  5. Hi, Melissa! Oh my goodness, when I've read about josterni, I can't help but think of those instances when I've actually experienced this thing! Thanks for sharing this! Now I know the right word for it.

  6. I rate the hidieous background of your blog on a -3.

  7. LOL! He got you too! I find it all soooo funny! :) LOL! You should put his calling card up on your blog now LOL!

    I left you a comment on my blog, by the way

  8. Awesome definitions! I love this meme, it's so funny!

  9. I think I do everything in a zinch which gets me in trouble! Great definitions!

  10. Alexia - I hate to say it but I think I am guilty of bratisat more than I would like to admit. And that targa gets on my nerves badly. lol

    Ryan - Josterni happens to me as well. I just hate when it happens as I am driving...

    Petty Witter - Just a secret I am starting to think we all still have bratisat moments, its just if we can cover them up well so others don't know. lol!

    Jackie - Thanks! At work I have been doing the josterni as well, we have been slow and that is when this starts to happen.

    Hey Peter! LOL! Share the word wisely. All will enjoy. lol

  11. The Crap Blog Detective - Thanks for stopping by. That comment actually makes me feel great!

    Krista - I have to go get his card to put up here some time

    Nikola - I am glad you enjoy these. I enjoy coming up with them. Gives me a chance to come up with some crazy stuff and to put a name to things I don't have a name for.

    Deb - zinch gets me at times. Then I try to go back and fix things and at times make a bigger mess. I have to learn to not do it as much my self.

  12. I just seen this - I have missed the last two weeks but am so prepped for this week!

    I like bratisat! Been there... done that :)

  13. Hi Sheila! You should have lots of words ready to go for this week. Look forward to seeing what you pick.
