Skip to the Loo my Darling!

Nice one Scriptor Senex..

Scriptor Senex said...

Lating (v) Consuming large amounts of milky coffee at the end of the evening.

With all that lating you'll be up and down to the loo all night and quite unable to sleep!

Time for bed the hour is.... eyes are closing and my bed is waiting.

Oh I do want to be beside the seaside!

I almost forgot this as one of my recent favorites! So obvious..

Hedgie said...

nomer -- Anglo-French phrase meaning "We are not going to the seaside for our vacation this year."

A for Effort..shouldn't that be E for Effort?

I loved this for its pure story..maybe we should limit you to one minute, Beth?

C. Beth said...

guling [GOO-ling, verb]

Talking smack about fellow reality TV contestants, in an interview with a producer.

This season's America's Next Top Model contestants are particularly adept at guling. "I don't even know how these other girls got chosen," Mandy whined to the camera in last week's episode. "Regina says she's a size 2, but have you seen her thighs? Disgusting. I'm convinced her jeans are really size 4. And Matilda is so flat-chested I seriously thought she had learned to turn her head all the way around, but then I realized I was looking at the front of her, not the back! I bet the next Tyra Mail will announce that everyone except me is going home, stat."

Very creative but I think you are watching too much reality TV!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

One more for a snowy Friday!

The fire is so delightful!

What does it signify?

Oh the weather outside is frightful!

Why go out in the snow when you could be pondering this one?

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

I tip my hat to....

Blogger C. Beth said...

capityp (CAP-i-tip, noun)
Advice given on how to be a success in the U.S. capitalistic economy.

"Today's capityp is this: Tell yourself every morning that poor people are all lazy. It makes it easier to take advantage of them."

Very topical although its nice to see rich people get taken advantage of too once in a while. See how Madoff made out listening to this kind of advice!

Stick to it..or not!

I've come unglued on this one!

You can't 'mis' this one!

I think this is very appropriate...what could it mean?

Monday, December 15, 2008

Tenesse (tee' Nesee)colloq.

An expression used by cattle ranchers, however only in the state of South Dakota, as an alternative to "Woa Nellie".

Jumping on the calf and quickly tying the frightened animals legs with rope, the Cowboy exclaimed, "Tenesse, settle down now little feller I'm not gonna hurt ya".

You Guys are setting the standard very high!

Blogger Charmaine said...

Confunli (noun) Cah fun lee

Chinese actor widely known to have kicked Bruce Lee's butt on any number of occasions however sadly, these events were never filmed. Died in 1947 in complete obscurity despite being a vastly superior Kung Fu fighter.

Bambi look over there, seated at the bar, is that Bruce Lee?

No, silly, everyone knows Bruce Lee doesn't drink, that's Confunli.

Maybe we should call him a cab. He doesn't look so good.

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

A snack for Chewsday!

I hope you have con-FUN-li with this on!

Nepotism is Neet!

I can't help but give this one to my wife. I thought it was creative, believable and poetic all in one.

In the myth of Echobos, a young girl falls in love with the voice she hears whenever she calls into a cave. For her devotion to the source of the voice, who she never sees, she is made into a stream that will flow through the cave for all of eternity.

One of my all time favorites...and I'm not just saying that!

Some people are in a constant 'midlike' crisis.

Yesterdays Definition Diva is Christy with a very topical,


A statement made, usually by a presidential candidate, that indicates support for a particular topic but does not bind the candidate to any action.

He stated that the issue impacted both "the traditional family and the non-traditional family" and there were many who believed that this acree, somehow meant he would uphold gay marriage.


Very special mention to Hans who played up to my Irishness and showed a good understanding of the Irish language with his definition of Acree,

Dialectal for acreen, Irish diminutive for acre. Hence spelt acree' with apostrophy:

Och, I do't have any real acres o' my farm. Only a wee acree'.

Welcome Hans. Hope you have fun!

Monday, November 24, 2008

Monday Munday!

Can we agree on what Acree means?

Hope everyone had a guud Weekend?

'What could it Mean?' was quiet over the weekend but this definition jumped out as my favorite.

ballycle \BAHL-i-kul\ n.
the last hair left on a human head

Clyde, convinced that no one noticed his impending baldness with the freakishly long ballycle wound neatly around his bare scalp, tucked the wispy tail end in for a perfect one hair day.

Saturday, November 22, 2008

I really loved this one from CoastalGranny. It's so believable, and I'd love to know what a 'diaplacement pump' pumps? Any ideas anyone?

Tranter (noun)
the tool used to replace ripped diaphrams in positive diaplacement pumps.

He extended the tranter over the diaphram lip and pulled, before he realized he hadn't closed the intake valve. By then it was too late.

Too late for what?

Wake up and be Cownted!

Warm up on this icy Saturday morning by stretching those intellects and getting your creative juices flowing with this little tid-bit of a VW.
