Vomitrocious & the Phat Friday Sale

Vomitrocious - It's one of those words that sticks to your vocabulary like a nasty piece of gum under a 3rd grader's chair. The kind of word that comes from a giddy Girls Weekend. I can't remember who spoke it into my existence. I believe it was Amy? Wendy, correct me if I'm wrong. (I know you're lurking.) I don't even remember what she was talking about when she said it. I immediately interrupted her and said, "Whaaaa did you just say??? VOMITROCIOUS??? Baaahhhhahahahahaaaaa!!" (I believe she stole it from Arthur. Oh the things our children are learning from PBS.)

After I snort laughed about 23 times, I started to use it whenever possible, giggling every time it hit air. It's one of those words that can be used for good or bad, kinda like...the word Fat/Phat or 'bad' (granted, only kids under 17 can use 'bad' or maybe they don't say that anymore?) Yeah, I'm getting old.) For SURE you don't think it's nearly as funny as I do. That's OK. I'm alright with that.

I'm easily amused, by the way. I know you figured that out.

Vomitrocious: (when used to denote badness) To excite nausea, revolting, exclamation of disgust
-- i.e. Trying to put on 'skinny' jeans after a Girls Weekend filled with eating all things salty and too much cheese cake is completely vomitrocious!
Vomitrocious: (when used to denote goodness) huge, enormous, immense, tremendous
-- i.e. That blogathon was vomitrociously out of control awesomeness!
(Yes, awesomeness IS a word, too.)

There, don't ever say I never taught you anything beyond valuable. ;-)

Sarah said...

OMgoodness. You have completely infected me with the vomitrocious bit.

Mamarazzi said...

i am loving the new word vomitrocious will most def work its way into my daily vernacular!

Kristen said...

Oh my goodness, I love those shoes. But I have no excuse to get them. Anyway, thanks for passing along the Aleve tip. Hubby takes it for his bad runner's knees and we're about out!

Jen said...

Um, not yet its too early but I am totally lovin the shoes and the pan set.

Mandy said...

Living in your house during a 6 month reconstruction phase with 2 children under the age of 3 is completely vomitrocious. Seriously.

Jennie said...

The cashmere sweater would be a nice present.... I would LOVE to buy the Red Bull, I was so addicted to those before I got preggo and since I am nursing I still can't have it, think of the caffiene high the baby would be on...I have an elliptical similar to that one and it is so VOMITROCIOUS how it never gets used!!!

Tamara Dawn said...

Paying $76.56 or even $43.99 for 24 cans of Red Bull is like so totally vomitrocious!! Ick Ick.

Alison said...

Hey There!! I found you on the Sitssa site! I love your blog and all the info!

Rock on fellow SITSsa!

Anonymous said...

I can probably use it in a sentence but I don't think I can pronounce it! My dogs generally turn any day into a vomitrocious day. I take that back--I don't think I can use it in a sentence either! haha

Meaghan said...

Started our giveaway today :) If you want to include it on your blog let me know :) Also, I would like to donate a bag to your site for you to give away.


tiarastantrums said...

great friday deal s- and I'm not going to try to use that word - weak stomach!!

Heather said...

If only I could wear heels with my scrubs...that would be totally vomitrocious!

Anonymous said...'s way too early for me to start using my {mommy} brain. I'm not fully functional until I've had a least two cups of joe. Be back soon...

Anonymous said...

It would be a vomitrocious act to not have those cute cute nine west sandals. *sigh* I need more money. haha

angie said...

I love BCBG! Those flip flops would look hella vomitrocious on me!

I don't even know if I use 'hella' right. I'm so old!

Brooke said...

Is it bad that I don't even have kids and I knew that vomitrocious came from Arthur?? I could even tell you which character. Wow, now that is vomitrocious!

OklahomaMomma said...

Vomitrocious is so the new word for me - LOVING it! I see this word making an appearance in a near future post. :)

Here's my official answer:
It was vomitrocious when my dear husband caught a large turd in his hand when it fell out of the sweet boy's open diaper. AH!!!! He saved it from hitting the carpet so that's all that matters in my world.

Jen - Balancing Beauty and Bedlam said...

With three middle school/high school boys...vomitrocious is now up on my white board for our home school word of the day! :)

Anonymous said...

You are a crack up! So funny! I love it when a night with the girls creates funny words like that. The only thing vomitrocious in my house is the rotten fruit in my fridge. I keep putting off cleaning it out! Yuck!

Fabulous shoes! I love the white ones. Just may have to pick up a pair!

Ash said...

I must say, those are some seriously awesome F.M.P.s, if ever I've seen any.

And you're a P.I.M.P. - so I'm fairly confident you know what that means. I may have to "accidentally" leave this post up for when Dear Hubby comes home.

You know the one problem though, he won't get past all the "vomitrocious" stuff. He'll be giving you a shout out snort for sure!


Michelle said...

Ah, like oh my gawd, the pooch rolling over my jeans right now is so totally vomitrocious.

How that for ya? :)

Mari said...

The deals you find are completely vomitrocious!

Us said...

Thanks for the vocab lesson, lol, I am SUCH a word person. Now I have a vomitrocious word for you: pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
Yes, it is an actual english word and I will pronounce it for you next time we talk if you want :o)
It's a word I've known how to spell (hopefully I spelled it right) and say since I was like 8 yrs. old - used to be the longest word in the english language, don't know if it still is.
I do like the word vomitrocious though - even though the root word is VOMIT

FROGGITY! said...

oh dude, i love a good made up word. that's awesome. i also like malapropisms -- when someone uses a similar sounding word in the wrong context. so funny.

vomitrocious! haha! my little one was vomitrocious yesterday... don't get me started on that though. glad it's over! poor lil' thing. TGIF! have a lovely weekend.

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

That is so funny. My husband and I have tons of these kinds of words. We crack ourselves up. This one will come in handy when I hear something gross, I can say "I just had a little vomitrocious stuff come up in my mouth." :-)

Happy day,

Lindsey said...

hmmm.... what would vomitrocious be in spanish?

Unknown said...

I can use the old trick I used in elementary school... "Vomitrocious is one of my spelling words."

Jaime said...

That was a great laugh. Thanks for that word. I'm sure I'll be using it from now on.

Melodie said...

Sometimes I find the outfits my eleven year old puts together for school to be completely vomitrocious!

Anonymous said...

Umm...I wanna use vomitrocious in a sentence but I don't think I'm allowed to talk like that here. :)

Kelsey said...

waking up at 6:45 to hear construction work is Vomitrocious!!

You know the sad thing is, I'm sitting here reading this and thinking, "I NEED THOSE SHOES" when the freakin Mary Poppins "Supercalifraglisiticexpealidocious" starts playing in my much for that!

Susan Kuhn Frost said...

LOL! I had a friend who made up "vomitacious" -- but your "vomitrocious" has a double kick to it.

Breanne said... is vomitrocius that I cant even think of a sentence.

Monogramchick said...

It is seriously vomitrocious that I haven't found your blog before today!

LeLe said...

lol... I'm gonna start using 'vomitrocious' every chance I get now. I love it! I don't think that you would be too freaked out by Twilight. Not too scary... mostly just romantic. :) Have a great!

Anonymous said...

Yup, you're right! It was Ames! And I'm a day (or more) late - sorry!! Been a crazy few days - you know what I mean wink!
