On Word-Coinage

At work today it was decided — I had coined a new word.

A good word. A perfect word.


I don’t claim the word. I see, from a quick Google search, that “clusterfuckery” has been in circulation for a few years now. It’s not my neologism. 🙂

Yet, I’m still going to use it.

I thought today would be a clusterfuckery sort of day. It was a busy day, but not a terrible day. I listened to WSHA’s jazz most of the day, got my writing done, got my proofing done.

Tomorrow, I think, should be okay. Indeed, while I’m planning upon being at the office until 8 o’clock-ish, I may put in a regular day. I have a major project to work on in the morning, and then my regular duties in the afternoon. That’s how things are looking right now. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Still, there’s a perfectly good, new word for you to use.

Clusterfuckery. 😉
