    "Lasterday (refers to any day before today) we squinched (action required to fit something into a space that is slightly too small) a schmiglet (a small unit of measurement) of your awesomtastic (so wonderful the words just meld in your mouth) one-of-a-kind entries into this space in preparation for our Top Ten reveal. With so many chizzy (awesome, super, happening) creations to choose from, we admit to becoming a bit flusterpated (a state of being flustered that's so intense, one's actions and words become bound up) and fahoodled (confused, esp. when trying to think of too many things at once). We craughed (to cry and laugh simultaneously), we troddled (to wander around without knowing of doing so), and finally decided to use the schwack (a large amount) of multiple entries received as the basis for the Top Ten—this is, let's not forget, all about favoritism."

    What? No "Discombobulated"? - Totally messed up and out of place. Or, "Laxafluicated"? - A sudden and uncontrollable loss of bodily fluids after parting all night and day.

    I don't see "boomfuggled" or "fudmuggled" anywhere on the list...

    As these are persistent states for me, I should ask that they be added.
