Schlendrianocratie Lessons to Be Learned

Happy New Year to all! See you tomorrow with the winner, who won't be Susan. (I do believe Schlendrianocratie is much too large of a security word, so if you're going to fake your entries, might I suggest... not.) However, we would like to thank you, Susan, for showing our readers what not to do. Boobie Prize winner, JAS? We shall use you as an example; and perhaps next time you will lay off the bottle so soon in the day. See you all tomorrow. Keep those wonderful entries coming.

Security Word Deadline for entries is 11:59 pm 31 December 2008.


Congratulations to Susan for being the first person to suggest a word. However, as this word already exists Susan, it's really a no-go. Frieda and I are interested in those words that escape the normal boundaries of dictionary definition please.

Schlendrianocratie, as I am sure all our readers are aware means bungling bureaucracy in German- though this fell out of common use about 200 years ago, so no marks to Susan then. It was a nice try and we are most grateful for your entry, however, if you could play by the rules next time dear.

My colleague Frieda will be cataloging our first entry proper on the first day of the new year, or should that read New Year! We would like to take this opportunity to wish you very well for 2009. Just remember to take plenty of water with it- a lesson Frieda had failed to grasp over the years, the office party 1989 being a case in point. God love her.

Dyslecsics Dictionary to Kick off New Year With New Word!

It's almost time. We're getting ready to kick off the New Year! Our first Dyslecsic Dictionary word winner is coming soon. Which will be our lucky word? Turn in your comments and sponsor a security word now!

Welcome to Dyslecsics’ Dictionary: State the Obvious With an Essential Compendium of Security Words

Welcome to Dyslcsics’ Dictionary, with your hosts, JAS and Frieda.
As all of you know, security words are the essential heartbeat of the day to day blog commenting world. We all do it. We’re all proud to play our part in it. Security necessity reminds us that we are people. Security words are our way of saying, cyber world, we’re here, we’re real, and we matter! So here at Dyslecsics dictionary, we take pride in these humane facts and would like to take time out to honor these security words that make our life whole.

As you may or may not know, many of these security words have no home in our dictionaries. In fact, the number of homeless security words in the whole of cyber world is astounding, and their numbers are growing rapidly. This is a sad piece of information, and for many, hard to swallow. Yet the fact still remains.

We at Dyslecsics’ Dictionary have vowed to put into effect a New Year’s Resolution to stop the madness. We want to change the world, one security word at a time. We want you to join us!

Here’s how it works. When you attempt to post a comment on a blog, you will be prompted with your own, personal, security word. If you enter and submit your word, it becomes lost forever, possibly never to be seen or heard from again. So don't! We encourage all to

1. Read that word out loud. Give it its own voice. Let it speak to you.

2. X out and journal your word back into your comments, tell us what it means, and by all means USE IT! Give it meaning, give it shelter.

3. Once you’ve done that, you can feel free to post, enter, and submit. You’ve just given hope, home, and meaning to a security word in need. A home in Dyslecsics’ Dictionary! Congradulations!!!!

Free Speech equals Free Nation! Help us make this cyber world a better place, one security word at a time.

Your friends at Dyslecsics’ Dictionary,
JAS and Frieda

Making the world a better place, one word at a time.

PS. Please feel free to comment to comments using your or another’s security words. Every use helps.
