Rejoothe (pronounced re-yuthe)
Perhaps the best way to explain this one is to give the morphology. The phrase was originally “rejuvenating smoothy,” something we have at 3:00 almost every afternoon. Eventually it condensed to “rejuvasmooth.” It was then condensed once more, becoming “rejoothe” (but still pronounced with a hard j). Last of all we changed the pronunciation of the j to a y sound (Latin, you know). It has now reached a place of rest as rejoothe (re-yuthe).
By the way, one of these 3:00 fruit smoothy meetings a called a rejoothavige (re-yuthe-a-widge). This is a combination of rejoothe and viz. (see last post for explanation of viz. Always pronounce it with a w!)
The reason viz just turned into vig (widge) is because we do that kind of thing. You see, when the fancy strikes us, we change z’s or s’s into g’s (within words, this is pronounced like ridge). Here are some other words that we do this with: Cragy (crazy), freeging (freezing, you figure out the rest), frogen, suppoge, dispoged, Toeg, etc. This came from the Charles Dicken’s interpretation of British vernacular.
N-cha, n-cha is an onomonopia. It’s of course the sound of the rhythm you would hear (I guess) at some late night party. Basically, N-cha, N-cha-ing for us is doing something fun and relaxing in our spare time. Typically, we can’t figure out anything much to do and we sit around and ask each other how we ought to n-cha. We don’t really have a life, you know.
One of the ways we n-cha is to tink poe. It means we listen to some sort of book or drama on CD. We used to say when we did that, that we were “curling our pink toes.” And so, eventually, it got shortened and spoonarized to tink poeing. Often when we are wondering how to n-cha, one of us will say, “well, what do you tink?” That obviously means that we ought to tink poe.
Nox Cruciati (or D.N.)
One kind of n-cha-ing that happen only once a week is Nox Cruciati. This is latin for “the night of pain.” Because of the 4-s diet (which I will explain in another post) we can only have desert on one night each week. I don’t know why we always look forward to desert night (D.N.). It hurts! Even a moderate (OK, somewhat moderate) amount of desert gives me a stomach ache. Hence the name nox cruciati.
If you think you have detected a hint of Bryan’s writing in this post, you’re quite right. He’s been looking over my shoulder this whole time.
Since there is plenty more vocab. to explain, this post will probably be continued again.
