When I'm talking about my cats roaming through the decorative grasses in my back yard, I tell my sons the cats are 'jungling;'

They are not prowling through a real jungle, but acting like they are. When my cats snuggle into the blanket, they are 'nesting,' not building a nest. (See how fun this is?)
But I'm not the only one who does this. Who first used the words:
linking (as in chain-link smoking)
fragging (as in killing/wounding someone with a fragmentation device, i.e. grenade)
actualizing (to make actual or real)
Do you turn words on end, make a noun into a verb? Use them in unexpected ways? Try it, it's fun.
