Balderdash (9)

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:

pestin - when your child is constantly calling you (Huh mom, Huh mom, huh mom?) till youanswer them by vocal response.
testur - the crazy stupid mind games your boyfriend/girlfriend tries to play to see how you feel about them and if you ar loyal to them.
backsgen - the checking of background on your heritage to know where your ancestors have come from and what they have touched in the world.
autbar - that tool bar on your computer that adapts to what tools you use most often and places then at an easy click away so you don't have to go through all those drop down lists and boxes to find it.


  1. Yay! LOve the words! pestin cracks me up... I can just hear them, "Can I huh? Huh mom? Can I? Moooooommmmm!" LOL

    I am linking you to the post :)

  2. Pestin and testur are perfect and hilarious! Great words this week.

  3. Sheila - thanks for the link. I should probably start doing this. I haven't even tried that yet with the blogs.

    Ryan - thanks! It just happened to be when I got the word pestin one day my son was here chirping in my ear and it seemed to fit the word perfectly at the moment.

  4. Love your words this week!

    Pestin is too cute! I see that when I'm at the grocery store all the time. *L*

    I remember testur back in high school. Seems so silly now, but very dramatic back then.

    Great week!

  5. My daughter is pestin me all the time, lol. Great "words"

  6. An autbar... so that's what that thing is called! :)

    (My WV for this comment is "mention". Eh... you win some, you lose some. Can't do much with an existing word!)

  7. I LOVE this! SO fun! Thank you SO much Melissa for posting about my contest! I've got many more coming up!

    Lots of love,
    Park-Avenue Princess

  8. LOL! You are sooo good at this! Great anf funny words, Mel!

  9. Fun words, they made me laugh out loud. Thank you. :)

  10. Alexia - Yes, I sooo remember Testur from school. I am so glad I am past it now, it was very exhausting back then.

    Jackie - I hear ya. My son is always pestin me. I think all kids do. lol.

    La Coccinelle - yeah I hate when I get the words that are really words, kind of takes the fun out of it. Oh well...

    Park Avenue Princess - I'm glad you enjoy reading the words. I will definitely keep an eye out for your contests.

    Krista - Thanks for the complements! I try to have fun with these, but to me they sometimes sound goofy. But I post them anyway.

    Nina - I'm glad you stopped by and got a laugh. That is part of what they are for. Thanks!


Sorry, got 106 spam comments in less than 24hrs. Had to turn on again.

I love comments! Please share your thoughts. I will respond here in the comments back to you.

I'll try again without word verification, but if Spammers get out of hand again I'll turn it back on.

Thank you for visiting!
