Kedging-to remove the outside crusty layer of something to reveal something softer and useable.

Ex 1:

Being nervous about having her new mother-in-law over for dinner, Lacy prepared everything hours in advance. She wanted to make certain that everything was perfect. Having everything artfully rearranged on the buffet at least fifteen times she noticed minutes before her guest's arrival that the cheese cubes on the appetizer tray were dried out. She hurriedly began kedging the cheese in an attempt to salvage the appetizer and the dinner. She prayed that it wouldn't be noticed that her cheese cubes were now tiny and misshapen.

Ex 2:

Lloyd had been secretly adoring his neighbor Tabitha for years, she was a rough woman; strong and resourceful. She was also an animal doctor. So Lloyd over the years adopted three cats, four dogs, a parakeet, a boa constrictor, a monkey and an emu; all in an attempt to kedge away her tough demenor.

Man, these are all so great :D. Judging is gonna be Really tough on Saturday-ish.

xfox 04-26-2007 01:18 AM

Kedging a very embarrassing situation.

The Minerva, barely able to hide her keel was seen on a sandbar in Barnagat Bay by the local yachts, kedging not, and underway in all directions enjoying their freedom.

Kedging: The act of hitting somone over the head with some kind of keg

Oh my God! Why are they Kedging that poor man!?

Marcus Bales 04-27-2007 10:28 AM

kedging - posting more than one definition to the Dictionary Game in order to make sure the judges who disqualify people for multiple entries don't make you the word-picker.

Time and again Coffee's kedging had disqualified his brilliant definitions during Marcus's rounds as judge.

Coffee 04-28-2007 03:15 PM

The "actual" definition of Kedging...nautical of course:

Kedging:
A method of pulling a boat out of shallow water when it has run aground. A dinghy is used to set an anchor, then the boat is pulled toward the anchor. Those steps are repeated until the boat is in deep enough water to float.


And on to the Deciding:

Begining with our two self-disqualifiers this round we have

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Marcus Bales

kedging - lying about the size of one's penis.

& his official disqualifying post:

kedging - posting more than one definition to the Dictionary Game in order to make sure the judges who disqualify people for multiple entries don't make you the word-picker.

Time and again Coffee's kedging had disqualified his brilliant definitions during Marcus's rounds as judge.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Then we sadly stick to our form and lump the lovely Brynn with the scurvy dog Bales in the Transom of the pack for double posting in a Coffee round


Brynn

kedging - shaved, on a boat (sigh...wishing that I could award the win for this also conscise reference to MY favorite food group)

BUT... Brynn's official disqualifying post:

kedging - to reminisce nostalgically for the days when H.Fox did not escape victory by deliberately disqualifying himself by referring to other players in his entries, if only to be able to submit more fanciful efforts such as
"kedging - v. a drunken attempt to trim a laurel hedge by beating it with a tennis shoe, " without having to add "while simultaneously whacking off into a nearby rowboat."

Taking the Dictionary Game as seriously as ever,
I remain your humble nubile deckhand,
Brynn "Hoist those sails!" Barnaclescraper

-------------------------------------------------------------------

BTW...for those who may have wondered at my "seemingly" arbitrary rule that I always disqualify double posts...2 reasons; it's cuz it makes extra work for me...and because in an actual dictionary one DOES NOT see two entries for the same word...rather one would see multiple sub definitions under the same word. For example:

dog noun, verb, dogged, dog·ging.
–noun
1. a domesticated canid, Canis familiaris, bred in many varieties.
2. any carnivore of the dogfamily Canidae, having prominent canine teeth and, in the wild state, a long and slender muzzle, a deep-chested muscular body, a bushy tail, and large, erect ears. Compare canid.
3. the male of such an animal.
4. any of various animals resembling a dog.
5. a despicable man or youth....(See "Marcus Bales" :D )
6. etc
7. etc
8. etc

kedge (v) to be preempted in a change of direction by one's adversary

Hyakujo's Fox had just arrived at the Dictionary Game only to find Brynn had surreptitiously visited in the early hours of a gray Sunday morning and thoroughly kedged his newly forged plan to throw self-respect to the wind and use outright pandering to win over the judge, when a glorious 50ft yacht with a hull full of the finest Brazilian coffee beans, crewed entirely by girls in bikinis sailed past his study window.

Having finished his lesson on crown molding,the old timer turned to the apprentice carpenter.
"How do you cut kedging, son?"
"Don't know, sir."
Unlike crown molding, son, you don't cut kedging upside down and backwards."
"How do you cut it, sir?"

OK, the new word is:

obnubilation...



obnubilation

Go.

trisherina 04-30-2007 09:40 AM

obnubilation: The act of mocking or disparaging a less-seasoned poster on a message board.

xfox 05-01-2007 01:07 AM

obnubilation circling a prized rose bush and nibbing the loveliest buds.

The thought of interfering with Mother Nature by first cultivating such beauty and then subject it to rash molestation, didn't stop Heather from her morning obnubilations.

Brynn 05-01-2007 02:37 AM

obnubilation - 1. the act of setting fire to all of one's bills and obligations to avoid paying them. 2. the act of blowing up all of one's bills and obligations.
3. the insane dance one does around a fire while burning one's bills and obligations. 4. the act of voluntarily checking oneself into a mental health facility for a little R&R from one's bills and obligations.

Marcus Bales 05-01-2007 08:49 AM

obnubilation - The process, or result, of life experience, the vicissitudes of aging, or shacking up with Dinzdale, of a woman's progress from nubility to post-nubility.

Six weeks with Dinzdale had accelerated the Nolan sisters' obnubilation: though none was older than 24, they all appeared to be in their middle 30's.

Coffee 05-01-2007 09:34 PM

obnubilation

Shaving reproductive bits, esp. just prior to giving birth.


No one at the gym believed anymore that, 3 years after the birth of his son, Jason's obnubilation was sympathetic.

Marcus Bales 05-02-2007 06:31 AM

obnubilation - frat house reverse letter slang for "knobulation", which is itself a frat house euphemism for what the brothers claim GDI's do for sex.

"The library?" said the Deke, "You mean where GDI's go for some obnubilation in the corner carels?"

daverbee 05-03-2007 09:28 AM
