Coin a Word. Bucket Listologist.

Everyday I am amazed at the things that are possible with a little knowledge and effort. After doing the obligatory how to get my blog to be super freakin popular research, I came across a well-known personal blog {& my new bloggy idol} She was featured in Wikipedia as coining the word dooce {damn, how I want to be just like her when I grow up}.

How to Coin a Word

Do I smell a challenge coming on?  I have always been the person who believes that if it can be done…I can do it…if it doesn’t require heavy lifting or repairing carburetors of course.

Coining a word had always been on my bucket list, but now I was on a mission!

After throwing around the words fo’ shizzle dizzle, crapola & fantabulous, I opted for something related to what I do:

List-ol-o-gist: n: A person who is a master at creating lists.
The listologist just completed writing the list of the all-time best movies.

Buck-et List-ol-o-gist: n: A person who has mastered the art of living their life through their bucket list.
The only item left on her “things to do before you die” list is skydiving, then she will be a true bucket listologist.

I submitted them both to Urban Dictionary and got rejected the first time. After making some minor changes, I was successful at coining a word and you can find them both listed in Urban Dictionary {currently, waiting on approval from Websters!}

Would you consider coining a word? What word would it be?

  1. I've just gone ahead and 'thumbed up' both of your Urban Dictionary submissions.  Congrats on crossing off another item from your list!

  2. Heh: " The only item left on her "things to do before you die" list is skydiving, then she will be a true bucket listologist. "  immediately brought to mind the thought that leaving that particular item to the last is wise, given that it could be prophetic. It's definitely NOT on my bucket list! Nor is bungee jumping or anything else that involves jumping off something or out of something that could end in the sound *SPLAT*.
    What a neat bucket list item though – coining a word. Apropos too, for you! Way to go!
