Default [Dixonary] Round 3075 word: SIALID

Folks,

The word for round 3075 is:

*********************
SIALID
*********************

where capitalization has no significance.

Please send your invented definition of SIALID to emallach at verizon dot net by 9 am US EDT on Sunday, May 24, 49+ hours from now. (This is, and the voting period will be, on the long side to allow extra time over the U.S. Memorial Day holiday.) Don't Reply to this message without changing the To field of your reply, or you'll send your fake definition to the whole group.

If you know what SIALID means, please let me know ASAP the same way. If enough people know it, I'll pick another word - hopefully in time to keep the same deadline.

According to timeanddate.com <http://timeanddate.com/>, the deadline is:



and other times in other places. You might want to confirm any conversion that affects you. That site's good, but nobody's perfect.

I expect votes to be due 48 hours later: 9 am Tuesday in the eastern U.S., and so on.

New players are welcome. (So are old ones who've been quiet for a while.) Just send me a definition that you invented without looking up the word. Full rules at http://www.dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules <http://www..dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules>.

Happy defining, and do stay safe.

Efrem

Default Re: [Dixonary] Round 3075 word: SIALID

What you get when you mix fresh greens with Tadalafil.

Occasionally served with various root vegetables, oil & vinegar, and bits
of dried bread.

May cause hearing loss.

Default Re: [Dixonary] Round 3075 word: SIALID

Joseph,

The letters "NAD" under this "definition," which I put in bold green text below, stand for Not A Definition. Generally, NADs are attempts at humor, in this case making a pun on SIALID and the erectile dysfunction medication Cialis.

Ryan also sent me a real fake definition, privately. It will be in the list I send out Sunday morning. No hints about it here, though!

I should have added that inadvertently sending a definition publicly is not unheard of, even though this wasn't an instance of that. We've all done it, most of us more than once!

Default Re: [Dixonary] Round 3075 word: SIALID

Joseph,

I reply to posts exclusively via the Google Groups message board. My brain
has problems parsing the conversation structure that emerges via email,
despite using gmail. The threading on the board helps.

I only use email to send definitions and to receive definitions when
dealing. The upside of this is that I never accidentally post a public
message.

The downside is that I occasionally miss personal messages that branch off
of a thread. And I sometimes have trouble figuring out which email to send
definitions to. And I almost never think to sign my post replies.

But that's just me.

Oh, also: welcome. I think most of our newest players (since me, at least)
have found us via Wikipedia. I did. The rest have known someone who already
plays.

Ryan

Default Re: [Dixonary] Round 3075 word: SIALID

I've always thought NAD stood for 'Not A Dixon', where a Dixon was the
error of posting a fake def in public. It was named after our esteemed
colleague Steve, who - I'm told - made a habit of it at one time.

For Joseph's benefit, there's also a tradition of awarding the Dixonary
crown to anyone who commits a Dixon. I've got several crowns in my trophy
cabinet, so now I've adopted the method of play that Ryan described,
sending defs to the dealer by direct email.
