I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook, which leans more toward hate. The controls are unintuitive, the settings change all the time, and it's full of social stupidity made worse by the fact that all your relatives and people who teased you in high school are there. In my frustrations, I've taken to calling it "Facebutt." Some of my friends started calling it Facebutt, too. At first, I was amused. "They think I'm funny! Awesome!" Then, I started having doubts. What if their friends started saying it? And their friends? How will I feel when the word is just out there in the wild, and I hear it spoken by a total stranger? Horrors!

I found myself becoming possessive of the word. I imagine a lot of writers have this problem, becoming attached to words they coin. Then again, maybe not. I've always been strange that way. Is it ridiculous? Absolutely! I still want to plant my flag on the word, anyway. Facebutt is mine.

I also totally came up with "dooter."

It's a new month, and that means a new vote incentive! Get KT into the top 100 of Top Web Comics for a day, and there will be a bonus comic Monday, May 31. I already have an idea, and it's a doozy! Also, be sure to check this week's auctions. Lots of good stuff ending today, and more going up!

I totally know how you guys feel. I'd be possessive of words like that too. Then when you say, I made that up! no one ever believes you.

As an aside, I used to call those "beepbeeps" or "chirpy" depending on which one I was using. So no worries, Minty, I won't steal your name.

That's exactly it! I'd say I came up with it, and no one would believe me. So I'm using the Interwebs as my billboard. XD

You can call it a dooter! :D

My most recent word for it is "p'duh", pronouncing the letters PDA. Everyone seems to find that one even more amusing.

Oh, see... that's a little dooter! The regular dooters are those kiosks where you can scan an item yourself.

Ohhh, those! I just cal those "scanny" or sometimes "scannyscanny" or Scanny-san. X3

See, I have to find ways to amuse myself at work. >>
