Twelve years ago, my friends and I coined the word ‘pilver’. I’m pretty sure I was the only one in that room that still used it for years after. But I did get a few people to understand and use it in proper context after that. Then, when I started using the internet more and more, I used that as my screen name often. When I set up a website and blog, I decided to use that as the url.
Here’s a silly silly fact. Secretly, I want the world to use the word pilver in everyday talk, cause if anything says success, it’s having Merriam Webster acknowledge your slang. Well, that hasn’t happened, but someone has decided to send the word to UrbanDictionary.com. I’m flatter about this non-achievement. So, click on this, and go vote for my babble, for no reason whatsoever. (Vote for whichever you want, but there are three, and only one is mine). It’ll give me a thrill, and I like thrills.
And thanks to Meaningful Beautiful Male, whoever you are, for adding it to the UD.
I still like my definition of Pilver being a fancy drink glass.
I voted too… it seems lame that the first one is just a variation of “pilfer” and perhaps the person doesn’t know the difference…
I like how MBM also decided that the phrase is somehow related to Gillian Anderson.
I know which one is yours. That’s what I voted for.
I use ‘pilver’ quite often, actually. It’s a real word to me. And my last name is Webster so it has to be!!!
