Take 5: Portmanteau

Note:  Another new type of post –  I will be doing collection of 5 things/thoughts/etc. Expect a lot of randomness.

These are my new favorites.  Both using exisiting ones and making up my own.

What is a portmanteau, you ask?  A portmanteau or portmanteau word is a combination of two or more words into one new word.  


5 Good Examples
 

Spanglish

Gleek

Ginormous

Spork

Whacktivist


5 Bad Examples
 

Jorts 

Brangelina (however, not all of this type are bad, this one is just annoying)

Jeggings

Mandals

Turducken (ew.)

 

Something new!

For those that follow me on Twitter, or are friends with me on Facebook, know that I’ve been doing something new – something I like to call “Jammy’s Jam of the Day”.  Basically, just a song each day that either I’ve been listening to, is a reflection of my day, or just a fun new find.

In order to make this a bit easier to do, I’m going to post here and also cross-post to Facebook and Twitter.  I hope you enjoy my selections and maybe find some new music yourself!

I’m also going to start mixing in shorter posts with the longer ones – I want to post more frequently but also mix it up, so be on the look out for some randomness coming your way soon.

Jammy’s Jam of the Day – May 31 

Inspired by the fact I listened to Glee CDs most of the drive back to MN yesterday.
