"Slickery." A wet, icy surface that is slick and slippery.
"Phonecrastinate." Putting off answering the phone until the Caller ID information comes up.
"Gription." Friction that grabs; as in, "my car needs new tires because the old ones have lost their gription."
"Cognitive Displaysia." That feeling you get - before you even leave the house - that you're going to forget something and remember what it was once you're on the highway.
"Chillax." Relax, chill. Take it easy.
"Woot." An description of an exclamation of excitement. As in, "she let out with a woot."
