Sentence: They were out on a date, but Laura had seen Drew's icellationist behavior already tonight, and on previous dates, when he would talk with his friends for an hour everytime his cellphone rang. He should have been paying attention to her, shouldn't he? So, when he went to the bathroom, she didn't feel guilty at all about popping out the battery, sticking a piece of napkin across the contacts, and putting it back in. He would probably just think the battery went dead.

Etymology: Blend of: Isolationist - one who insulates themselves from ouside or foreign influences (from Latin, insula "island") + Cell - mobile telephone (shortening of 'cellular')
