New to the lexicon: "Lotterized."

Here's a new word, courtesy of Gloria Poessy's San Francisco tip sheet on low-income housing wait lists. (Getting on the distribution list is sort of via here. If seriously interested pls write me.)

The word is "Lotterized." As in, per yesterday's item on a seniors' waiting list, "All applications will be lotterized and placed on the waiting list in order of lottery."

Hey, scarce resources lead to coined terms for scarcity. What's new about that?
