mem-brain - A word of identification for the extraordinary ability of the human brain to keep separate two disparate functions, memory recall and control of skeletonal and muscular activity, while operating each smoothly, independently, and simultaneously.

e.g., Amelia looked at the chair at the end of the dining room table. It was left empty at every household gathering. "Louis, you would have been so proud of our family," she said to herself with a smile, picturing him sitting there in that ridiculous, dark red knit pullover he had worn every year on this holiday. Her son and daughter, and their families, had left early after Thanksgiving dinner as Friday was a work day for all four adults. They were insistent on cleaning up the table and dishes before they left, but Amelia was adamant. "You all have a five hour drive to get home," she said, "and I want you to be on the road while it's still light. We're expecting snow!" And they all left, still protesting, in a blur of car doors slamming, happy "good-byes" and "I love you!" trailing after them. Dishes clattered as she started to clear the table and carry the plates to the garbage pail for scraping. It was a fine Thanksgiving, and she had many things to be thankful for. But her son, Peter, looked tired and strained. He was a computer programmer in Boston and she knew he was worried about being laid off. She could see, almost as it were yesterday, the expression on Louis' face when he came home, shaken, to tell her that the company he worked for had been bought out and that the new owners were closing the plant. Things were tough for a couple of months until Louis got a job as an accountant in a local contractor's office, and in a few weeks, she began to catch him smiling again. The hot water from the tap felt good on her hands. "We're having a little problem with 'Arthur Itis,' she mused. The detergent was clumped, so Amelia used a knife to loosen it before pouring some into the dishwasher, then turning the dial to three and closing the door for a super wash cycle. The old washer began dancing a mild jig to the slight chugging of the motor. "I hope that Patti and my son-in-law, Chad, are getting along better," thought Amelia throughout the dishwasher process. "Their son Mark, is just three and Julie, the baby, won't be a year old until February." Like most marriages, she and Louis had an occasional argument, but they had vowed never to go to bed angry with each other. And it worked, except she could picture that one time, after the Forno's party, when the argument was about Louis having too much to drink and he stubbornly slept on the couch. The cold air from the open refrigerator felt refreshingly cool as contrast to the heat of the oven-warmed kitchen as she put away the last of the Thanksgiving day left overs. Amelia looked up at the kitchen wall clock. "For goodness sake!" she exclaimed while drying her hands on a towel, "two hours have disappeared and everything is cleaned up and done. Those special mem-brain moments made the chores, and time, go by so quickly!"

member of du - Cats are well known for their antipathy towards dogs. Sometimes this stretches to not even saying the word "dog."

metrognome - 1. "Metrognome" is the name of Gersh Kuntzman's weekly column running since April 1994 in the New York Post. Gersh coined the term in hopes of finding a single word that could capture this thought: Someone who has the beat of the city, yet is out there, under every bridge, hunting down great stories. Hence, the Metrognome. 2. A metrognome is an elf-like or troll-like person of Swiss descent who collects tickets in the Paris Metro. The metrognome is a small, ugly Swiss immigrant in Paris, France, currently employed as a toilet attendant. Being unable to afford a taxi when he first arrived, he started riding Le Metropolitain wherever he went. Eventually he came to love his frequent rides so much he got a part-time job filling in as a ticket taker on weekends. (Individual Mtro ticket is 8FF; packet of 10 tickets (a Carnet) is slightly more reasonable. Cost of RER tickets depends on distance traveled. Within central Paris cost is the same as Mtro tickets, and the same ticket is also valid on both systems.)

michele simplification - After struggling to remember how to spel parallel while I was in a near stupor earlier today, it occurred to me that we should just quit doubling l's in words. Make it paralel. Make it paralelogram. Make it -- anything but a word speled with double l's. Hel, at one point I managed to type in paralllel.    Since Microsoft Outlook didn't flag parallell. as a possible speling error, I wonder if it's an acceptable alternative speling.

e.g., Why the l don't you just start using the Michele Simplification -- never use doubled l's when you spel a word. | I used the Michele Simplification when we came up with my daughter's middle name. Not only did it require one less letter to spel, it looked better with her given name and her surname. Thought went into not just the name selection for her, but into what speling to use. | Now that my daughter is married and using the same surname as her husband, it might be that speling her middle name with two l's would look better. She's over eighteen, so the choice is hers. Given that she's always loved her name, including the speling, I doubt that she'l be making a change.

midnight drags - These are drag races held late at night on rural stretches of roads. In recent years, there are usually lookouts with cellphones posted a few miles from each end of the location, to warn of approaching cops. When I spent some time in a distant part of the country, I seem to recall that these races had a special added attraction, or was it just fantasy? Time can blur such memories. Anyway, they were started by a naked woman, who stood between the two cars and held pieces of her underwear up high. She would drop them to signal the start. A different woman started each race and if one wasn't willing to take her turn, she wouldn't be invited to attend again. Once, two women raced each other. Guess what they demanded for a starter? There were several guys eager to volunteer. But I'm sure that the refined and gentlemanly guys in my home area, would never subject a woman to such a thing. Are there still any "Dukes of Hazzard" fans out there?

Within minutes of adding "miered" to the PseudoDictionary, I found the following in my e-mail, from © Michael Quinion -- 28 October 2005 Newsletter POLITICAL SLANG Could it be that the decision by Harriet Miers to remove herself from contention for appointment to the US Supreme Court will result in "miered" entering the language? If it did, it would be a parallel development to the verb "to bork," in reference to the failed nomination by Robert Bork in 1987 and which the New York Times once defined as "to destroy a judicial nominee through a concerted attack on his character, background and philosophy." No example of "miered" has yet appeared in the public prints, so far as I know, though it has been widely used in blogs for the past couple of weeks.
