re: Hootlessness - there was an Australian (pronounced "strine") participant in this summer's Gothic tattoo-fest, the Dave Navarro-hosted "Rock Star" ( a slightly grotttier little brother version of "American Idol"). The Aussie guy tried to popularize another devil-may-care expression, a variation on the reckless "Whatever", with a jargon-y abbreviation which soon appeared in block letters on fans' fingers and foreheads:

" 'Evs".

The perfect word for those for whom three syllables are just too much trouble.

I love what you did.

Hootlessness, meant to be. Stick-to-itiveness, not so mellifluous; I prefer stick-to-itivity.
