There, dear Brynn, is a verb that (I think it would be safe to say) was entirely unanticipated by the lexicological (lexicolonic??) community. For that, I nominate you for a gold star and a purple jellybean.

Ah, now I'm all verklemmt.

Experts using infrared techniques found the sketch hidden beneath the delicate brushstrokes of Da Vinci's "The Virgin on the Rocks,'' a powerful study of Christ's mother in a rather gloomy cavern that hangs in the National Gallery. ..."

Uhhh, erm - maybe until she gets back.
How about creating a definition for

Marcus Bales 05-12-2006 04:16 PM

Okay, Brynn's the judge, and the new word is trisherina

trisherina - A sweet alcoholic mixed drink made from equal parts of cola, cherry schnapps, and vanilla cognac.

Coffee 05-12-2006 11:22 PM

Trisherina

An existentialist play from 1922 by the French playwrite Anton deFlakie, in which the actors purposely fail to show up for the performance. The "play" was only not-performed once before a live audience during the lifetime of deFlakie. Scathing reviews of the first performace described the lack of performance and no audience member ever showed up for the 2 subsequent attempts to not-run the play in 1923 and during the retrospective of deFlakie's work during the 1954 Paris film festival. However an obscure San Fransisco Haight Asbury street theatre company scheduled 7 performances on the corner of Haight Asbury in 1969, and without realizing it many pedestrians unwittingly walked through all 7 non-performances giving the play it's most succesful run ever. Interviews with some of the accidental witnesses of the play described it typically in the vein of; "Like wow man, there was a play..whoa, hey Frankie...what was in those doobies? I never saw a thing dude". One acid using theatre fan faithfully showed up for all 7 of the HA performances and judged day 3 to be the quintisential rendering of the work.

Trisherina Twiggy's first cousin, who is much smarter, and younger with little flair for fame. She is also way more attractive and just as perky, living a fine, fun, quiet life in Canada.

tri·she·rim·er - Dinz' fantasy of having three women like rmr at once

Brynn 05-13-2006 05:01 AM

These are all very interesting definitions - as interim judge, I am very impressed by Coffee's definition and feel that it comes closest to what a trisherina would most enjoy in the way of being defined. Therefore, I declare Coffee the interim winner, free to do whatever he wants until the actual trisherina shows up and provides a new word.
Congratulations!
