Sentence: Each spring, I get all craptimistic and weedgleed waiting for lamb's quarters and purslane to make their annual garden invasion. My motto - if ya can't beat 'em, eat 'em! (BTW, purslane contains more Omega 3 fatty acids than any other edible plant).

Etymology: crap, optimistic

The payoff for craptimism usually comes on large denominations of crapola. I hope I'm not being overly craptimistic about my herb and veggie gardens.
