She made excuses for him and tried to conceal his lazyfare attitude by blaming herself for not being more like her hero, Martha Stewart.

Etymology: Leftover: a vestige of a meal that is usually saved in the refrigerator with the intention of being reused before it petrifies or turns multicolored + overt: open, implicit or flagrant

Residurate

Created by: dochanne

Pronunciation: Rez-id-you-rate

Sentence: Anne's face dropped when she opened the fridge and found it full of near-empty and empty beer bottles, peanut butter jars with a smear left in them and a juice bottle with a few millilitres of orange in the bottom. "Aarrgh! You residurate!" she yelled, throwing the almost empty juice carton at Joe's limp form on the floor. "Ugh. I didn't get to take the rubbish out... could you?" he mumbled slurringly, scratching himself. "Not on your life!" was all she could think to say without cursing.

Etymology: Residue - icky remains of a substance; Refridgerate - store in a cold place; You - as opposed to me, since the reason I do it is because I don't want to be the one cleaning it or disposing of it.

Ok, I admit it, I've lived in a sharehouse with such a residurate. - dochanne, 2009-05-15: 03:29:00
