Here's one suggestion: if you're already going to have to pick something long and unweildy, don't get hung up on the "word" part. Why not pick a phrase, and, if you're doing that, why not pick a mantra that will improve your mood? Work out your frustrations ("I want to yell @ U 2"), affirm your self-worth ("I yam ! my j0b", with "!" for "not") — the possibilities are limitless.
