“Welcome to my world” – Jim Reeves.
A different Pracujące Poniedziałki (Working Mondays) for you today as I delve into my own wacaday, mysterious world where I add my own words and invent new words to and within the English language. If “to hoover” is a verb, “tannoy” is a noun and “facebooky” an adjective, then I am in on the act. Shakespeare style with a Northern Irishman based in Poland twist. Mine’s a zurek, pierogi ruskie and a cold beer. #tourist #travelwriter #jonnegoblairowski
During the last 12 months since I relocated to Poland (by complete mistake and default I should add), I have been in constant depression, suicidal almost daily. I was lied to by friends, disrespected as a tourist and travel writer, stalked by a Guru God who thinks he knows the answers to all the world’s problems. So again in life, I turned to my paper and pen for solace. I wrote travel articles, poems, football articles and then I started to invent new words. And now, those words all come together today on one easy post where I tell you the new words that I invented, and what they mean.
“Rozmawiam z Jonnym w Manhattana” – Rafal Kowalczyk.

Example sentence – “That girl over there is a nasty cow-excrementor, she lies so much she is horizontal”.
Crackpacker – (noun, person) – A person who cannot really handle backpacking. They start to travel and then realise it is not for them, so they crack up and quit, returning to a less nomadic lifestyle.

Footballic – (adjective) – A describing word for something totally unrelated to the game of football but somehow resembles it.

Example sentence – “Last time down the pub, my mate did something really footballic without a caser and left us all in stitches”.
Jeelonna – (a colour) – The only colour in the world that is “Jeelonna” is the current Northern Ireland home football shirt, therefore this colour changes when that team change their home shirt. With this in mind, “Jeelonna” has actually featured about 50 shades of green down the years.

Example Sentence – “It’s Barack Obama in New York made of Lego. Yet totally undenmarkable”.
- Wacaday – (adjective) – Anything crazy or reminiscent of 1980s era “Timmy Mallet” shows on British Television. Note – this was not invented by me but by Timmy Mallet, but I have used it frequently and it was the inspiration behind the word “whackpacking”.

All words except “Wacaday” (copyright Timmy Mallet) were invented by Jonny Scott Blair (Jonnego Blairowski) during the depression era July 2016 to June 2017.
All words are ready for frequent use. None of them are yet recognised by the Oxford or Cambridge dictionary.
Mis-use of these words will be deemed lunatical.

This was amazing. You are a true joy to read.
Hi Ashley thanks for your comment and for taking time to read. Best wishes. Jonny
are you now a crackpacker?
Hi Susie, thanks for your comment. I guess I could be on a global scale but I still crackpack, whackpack and backpack within Poland so not totally given up on it. In fact as I write this, I just boarded a bus with a backpack on! Thankfully I don’t lie to others, so at least I’ll have honesty if everything else fails. Safe travels. Jonny
