Confabulate: To talk together, converse, chat; in Psychiatry also means: to replace the gaps left by a disorder of the memory with imaginary remembered experiences consistently believed to be true.
This isn’t a real RT round-up, just a sketch of what might have been for today’s WOTD if I wasn’t too taken up with our election wake.
Not a particularly inspiring word, today’s WOTD (and yes, that IS sour grapes because got the form of the word wrong in my Artwicutweets from my non-Internet connected mobile phone).
But here are a few favourites I think particularly deserve my RT vote and a bit of extra exposure.
RT @TidKid @artwiculate “The word for today is confabulate” “It never was!” “Um, yes it was?” “Before my time” “So?” “Just saying” “OK”
I missed it too, @TidKid.
RT @lagadu123 Letâ€™s confabulate about the early days on artwiculate, when all was fresh & rosy, and every winning tweet was worthy.
Ah yes. @lagadu123, I remember them well … Or perhaps I’m just confabulating? 🙂
RT @I2Haiku I always / block out / bad memories / and only recall the good / or confabulate them #artwiculate #gogyohka
RT @jumpmonk “Waiter, there’s a confabulate in my soup.””But of course, Sir. It’s what everyone’s talking about.”
RT @marcosarroyos Blessed are they who confabulate for we can all use a good story.
RT @Squawkingalah I’d be happy to confabulate all day. Failing that, quite happy to just fabulate.
RT @19ish Aesop was The Great Confabulate -r! His fables are legendary! #artwiculate
RT @ariandalen Ah, Mistress Confabulate: she’ll tell anyone who asks just how fabulous you are, even if she can’t remember you.
RT @drchavi To create one needs to confabulate…
RT @harrarp There they are again // the moon, the lake and the word // is confabulate. #haiku
RT @marcosarroyos Once the Chinese take over script writing for Hollywood, all scripts will have a stamp that says “Confabulate-d in China.”
RT @osmarjardim Confabulate-d in China. ä¸Šé¢å†™ç€â€œæ‘†é¾™é—¨é˜µåœ¨ä¸å›½Ã MT@marcosarroyos
RT @runheidi Please, dear boy, confabulate. It’s really not a sin. When she asks if she looks fat, tell her she’s too thin. #artwiculate
RT @LorcanDesperado Confabulate? That certainly isn’t a rugged individualist habit. #artwiculate
RT @dsceiorg Collective nouns: A headache of late mornings; A surprise of bed companion; A confabulate of morning afters #artwiculate
And @dsceiorg, FYI, that last one made the list both for the use of the WOTD and for “A surprise of bed companion” 😀
RT @Wifsie Lady Chatter-ley watched speechless and akimbo while Lover Andy made his confabulate gumbo. #lqw
RT @ZimmerJohn The banter on Twitter is great-It carries on early or late-Thru the whole Twitterverse people chat & converse-In tweets do they confabulate.
And to follow up @zimmerjohn’s tweet with the next from @Ysabeluna seems only right!
RT @Ysabeluna to CONFABULATE is human, but often, SILENCE is divine #artwiculate
And that, my dears, is that. Had I planned things better I’d have begune with once upon a time and ended with happily ever after – but we all know that would have been a fabulation. Besides I’m ever so slightly tipsy and so’s @TheSupercargo to whom I’m handing back the baton – if he doesn’t drop it. Catch![RT @TheSupercargo @artwiculate Despite the rumours being spread by my evil dopplganger @TSupercargo I am not the worse for drink – only the better for it 🙂 ]
