My roommate made a malapropism the other day that worked great as a portmanteau:

Attentative: adj; from "tentatively attentive:" that state where you're in class and are trying to be attentive, but get caught off guard when the teacher calls on you, and you realize that you aren't sure whether you were actually paying attention.

My room mate just invented "embarrassment empathy." The feeling you get when you have to pause TV or turn away from it or from a book because you can't bear to look at the super awkward thing a character is doing.

I call it the Michael Scott Effect.
