Updated: Coliary coliary fucking coliary

This post here?  It’s either brilliant and you are totally going to thank me next time you’re grasping for the right word, or it makes no sense at all.  I’m too drunk to tell.  Or to use apostrophes correctly.  I’ll probably delete this in the morning so if you need to confess a murder or something but think you might want it erased later this is probably the post to do it on.

You know what word I really like?  Coliary.  I don’t even know what it means.  Coliary.  I just like to say it.  It sounds like cauliflower, but then cauliflower went to college and became coliary.  And gay.  You always come back from college gay.  Or at least bi.  Those are the rules of college.  I think “coliary” is going to be my new word for words that I know exist and I want to use them because they fit perfectly for the situation but I can’t think of them at the time and then I end up calling former coworkers saying “What’s the word for that feeling you get when you can’t find a big enough bomb to destroy your enemies so you invite them all to a party and drug them and cut off their pinkies so that you can identify them from their wonky handshakes if you meet them later when it’s dark or if you’re too drunk to recognize that you don’t actually like them? ” and they’re all “I’m at work” and I’m all “Yeah, I AM TOO.  It’s the demanding work of word-crafting and I need your fucking help” and they’re all “I’m pretty sure that word doesn’t even exist” and I’m all “No, it totally does.  I think it starts with a D” and then they get all pissy and so you hang up on them and vow to never even acknowledge them in your book, but you can’t even write your damn book because you’re stuck on the D-word that may or may not exist.  Except now? Problem fixed, because I’ll just use the word “coliary” as a filler and go back and fix it later when I remember the word I wanted to use.  It’s like my own personal placeholder.  My kick-ass placeholder concept is rife with rich coliary.  That last “coliary” was used a placeholder, but  it might also be used correctly.  I guess it depends on what coliary really means.  I could look it up but spellcheck keeps telling me it’s not a real word so I’m guessing this ends badly.  Coliary coliary coliary. That was an entire sentence of placeholders to remind me to write something witty there that explains what the fuck this whole thing means after I figure it out.  Fuck.  I feel so…coliary.  I don’t even know if there is a word for that.  That feeling you get when you don’t know what words mean so you make up one and you call it “coliary”?  Or maybe that’s just the opposite of what I mean.  That should mean “coliary” too.  I bet this is how people who made up words like “bacon” and “perpendicular” felt.  They felt totally coliary, by the way.

Updated: Okay, I just looked up the word “coliary” and google was all “That word doesn’t exist.  Did you mean colliery?”  And no, google, I fucking didn’t.  Because a colliery is apparently “a coal mining facility and associated equipment”.  I would never use that word, google.  Apparently the word “coliary” doesn’t even exist until now.  Which is totally fine, google, because that means it’s free game.  I claim “coliary”.  It’s mine now.  And yours.  Because I’m sharing it with the world.  You’re welcome, world. You all owe me a drink.

Updated X 2: Okay, Victor just came in and yelled at me for still being on the computer at 9:00 at night and I’m all “OKAY, dude. Don’t have a damn coliary” and he’s like “Do you mean ‘coronary‘?” and yeah, I totally did mean that but I couldn’t think of the word right then but then Victor guessed it and I think this just proved that this whole concept works even better than I’d originally hoped for.  I am a fucking genius.  Or Victor has become psychic.  Unlikely.

Updated X 3: I’m getting yelled at again for still being on the computer even though I just said I was getting off 15 minutes ago.  I bet Einstein never had to deal with this shit.

Updated X 4: The Urban Dictionary refuses to publish the definition of Coliary, which is, by definition, undefinable. So technically I think by refusing to define it they’re actually affirming the use of the word.  I think this means we win.

Updated X5: The Urban Dictionary has published the definition of Coliary.  It’s like they’re totally fucking with us.  Also, since I’ve updated this post 5 times I think this counts as 5 posts, right?  I say yes. My God, I’m prolific this week.

Comment of the day: Einstein did NOT have to deal with this shit.  He was desperately ill with an acute case of coliary.

OMG you’re right.  It works EVERYWHERE. ~ moooooog35

It was after my Women’s Sexuality course (actual course, got credit for it and everything). I learned that everyone is bi. You fall in love with a person, not a gender goddamnit! I learned that. Turned me right around. So perhaps we can use the word coliary to describe those people who claim they are bi but really aren’t bi but feel the need to say they are bi because they are attracted to and fall in love with a person and not a gender goddamnit! Works for me. I’m coliary.

  81. Lewis Carroll made up a crapload of words but also coined the concept of a portmanteau (though that word is actually French) which is when you cram two or more words together to make a new one, which was his explanation of the word slithy as a portmanteau of lithe and slimy. This is a paraphrasing of a Wikipedia article that automatically escapes from my head like a brain fart any time someone talks about making up new words, although portmanteaus are constantly being coined these days but hardly anyone is making new words from scratch anymore. Good job.

    You know I totally went to look up what that word means, and this blog was the first search result? And the Swish Embassy, whatever that is, says you can totally have ‘coliary’.

    Use it wisely.

    Sidenotes:
    – I like the sound of real words that sound made up, like ubiquitous.
    – cookie dough is kinda bad for you but it’s hard to stop eating it because it’s so tasty. But since it’s meant to be cooked in the oven to make cookies, it’s technically cookie foetus. Yeah, doesn’t sound as tasty hey? That’s my contribution to the “fight against obesity”. My other hand is in a bag of chips, so um good luck in finding a way to make those less tasty!

  124. Are you sure you didn’t mean corollary? Cuz this definition sounds like you, which I found on Wiki, but which as I said sounds more like you. Did you put it there?

    “A corollary is a statement which follows readily from a previous statement. In mathematics a corollary typically follows a theorem. The use of the term corollary, rather than proposition or theorem, is intrinsically subjective. Proposition B is a corollary of proposition A if B can readily be deduced from A, but the meaning of readily varies depending upon the author and context. The importance of the corollary is often considered secondary to that of the initial theorem; B is unlikely to be termed a corollary if its mathematical consequences are as significant as those of A. Sometimes a corollary has a proof that explains the derivation; sometimes the derivation is considered to be self-evident.”

  136. To echo post #99… In the land of Serious, this is a great concept that all writers should espouse & know. Coliary — It’s a cure for the common writer’s block. Whenever I’m in the middle of a draft, and I can’t think of the right word, phrase, or sentence? I throw in these things –> { }. Y’know, as a placeholder. Or, if I realize that last bit of dialogue was utter shit, but the idea’s right (but seriously, I need to fix it in revision ‘cuz it’s utter shit)… I put these things around the offensive words –> { }.

    What are those things called? I mean, I could look it up, but it’s not like it’s common knowledge. You know what? They’re now called “coliary brackets.” That’s what they are. Or if you prefer highlighters, it’s the “coliary highlight.” The concept has a word, and that word is ‘coliary’.
