Taylapathy

noun; blending
An extreme lack of interest or enthusiasm; laziness; extreme apathy. The person named Taylor explained that his apathy was so strong that he needed to create a new word for it, which he derived from his name. To make the blend work out well, the –or was dropped from Taylor and “apathy” was used to replace it. The term’s use has spread through a considerable number of electrical engineering students at Rice and can be heard almost daily among certain groups, but so far it has not appeared to spread elsewhere.
 
My Taylapathy is contributing to my inability to get anything done.
Etymology : The word was formed from a blending of the name Taylor and the previously-existing term apathy.
