The Word: Hilasterous - The Definition...

Last week I was somewhat absent from the bloggy blog world of memes, carnivals, and my hobby as Princess Comments-a-Lot. If you read my previous post or follow me on Twitter you knew what was going on. (The constant Twittering was therapeutic.) 

Anyway, I am back full force this week…hopefully. I will go back to New Orleans tomorrow to see the hemotologist/oncologist to check the progress of my white blood cell count on Tuesday morning. I pray it has come back up. I really do not want to spend another four days there. With the passing of Ethan Loney every one of my little complaints seem so petty, so I will not dwell on these minute issues. I was told to expect a few bumps the first year, and hopefully this is all it is.

On to this week's Meme-Go-Round with Supah - here's the assignment:
What is YOUR WORD?
a WORD or CATCH PHRASE that you made up 
or stole borrowed 
or adapted or whatever
a WORD or CATCH PHRASE that you say all the time, 
use in an unusual way, 
makes you laugh  or feel clever.
a WORD or CATCH PHRASE that you've redefined
or that has come to mean something different 
because of your kids or your job
Tell us your WORD or CATCH PHRASE, 
give us the DEFINITION and ORIGIN, 
and use it in a SENTENCE or story, if you prefer.

Not too far back I was tweeting or blogging, I can't remember, and I was telling a story about something physical. I know it must have been about my dancing or athletic ability because this is the perfect term a coined to describe it.
hil◍as◍ter◍ous  |hil|'as|tur|…ôs
                                              1. describes something extremely amusing that also causes 
                                                       unfortunate circumstances
                                              2. describes a catastrophe or unfortunate consequences that 
                                                       simultaneously brings laughter to those involved in the
                                                       event or simply spectators.
                                                  - These events can include my attempts to overtake a 
                                                    rolled bale of hay by running then leaping over it.
                                                  - They are also included, but not limited to my 
                                                    dancing, running, throwing, lifting, bending over, 
                                                    working-out, anything requiring hand-eye coordination, 
                                                   or choreography.
