valentine - (Pronounced to rhyme with AL-n-dean, not -dine; adj.) Shaped or resembling the classical 'heart'-shape (a cusped cardioid, point downward), an ideogram used in Western culture since the 1400s as a symbol of romantic love and devotion. One equation for one version of the shape (in formal mathematics) is (x2 + y2 − 1)3 − x2y3 = 0. The shape resembles the actual, anatomical heart about as much as a comb resembles moose antlers.

e.g., I used to live in the Poconos, a place full of trees, ski slopes, and honeymoon hotels. Back in the 70s, when I lived there, their ads all touted these valentine bathtubs.

vamptastic - A combination of the word "vampire" and "fantastic," it originates from an article about Twilight, but spread (with much help from the YouTuber NoMoreMarbles) from there to be used as a word describing anything cool and having something to do (however distantly) with vampires. Originally used as a mostly sarcastic or joking term, it has since been used enough to transform into an actual word describing something fantastic.

e.g., OME, these pictures are totally vamptastic. The vampires look completely dangerous and beautiful in them.

vandalice - To vandalice: to spray bags of ice with water. When I tried to complete my purchase of a bag of ice last night, I had trouble separating the bags. It appeared that the ice had probably thawed, moisture had condensed on the bags, and the ice had re-frozen -- sort of gluing the bags together. Occurred to me that someone could come in with a spray bottle filled with water and cause a bit of a headache for Quick Trip.

e.g., If the clerk at QT had said another word about me being a bald-headed geezer, I might have gone ahead and vandaliced the unit containing the bags of ice.
