Pronunciation: Slum-bur-snak

Sentence: Colin woke up with a sudden urge for something to eat, in fact he was so hungry he jumped out of bed and headed straight for the fridge. After a few minutes he had got through half a cooked chicken, four sausage rolls and a large slice of leftover chocolate cake. It wasn't so much a slumbersnack as a full course meal.

Etymology: Slumber(Sleep) + Snack (quantity of food eaten between meals) ORIGIN Dutch from snacken 'to bite'. = Slumbersnack


I'm a slumbersnack and I'm okay I eat all night and I work all day He's a slumbersnack and he's okay He eats all night and he works all day (couldn't resist the Monty Python reference) - Jabberwocky, 2008-07-11: 12:41:00

Was wondering if anyone out there would remember that Monty Python song. - TJayzz, 2008-07-11: 14:09:00

Great! Makes ME want a slumbersnack! - lumina, 2008-07-11: 20:39:00

Pronunciation: snak-uh-MAY-nee-ah

Sentence: It wasn't that he dull. It wasn't that he was bald, yet hairy at the same time. It wasn't even that he snored and smacked his lips when he ate. It was that he ate impulsively and urgently, and so often in bed that drove the poor woman mad. Thomas's frequent pre-slumber snackomania irritated the living daylights out of Miriam, more than the crumbs that ended up in the bed. His nocturnal tachyphagus tendencies were really trying her patience... Rat poison featured too often in her dreames. Something had to give...

Etymology: SNACK: a small portion of food or drink or a light meal, esp. one eaten between regular meals, + MANIA: an exaggerated desire or enthusiasm for.
