Word of The Week (13)

Phew! It’s been a crazy one guys! I’m at a Girlguiding leader camp, it’s cool. I like a bit of learning. Plus, these ladies make awesome characters, combining their traits and quirks to make a new person is fun! Shhhh, don’t tell them I said that!

Anyway onto the new word before I’m, lynched!!

This is a great word! Its nice to say and it sounds cool. It’s when you entice or deceive someone by sweet talk or flattery. I think its a more sophisticated way of saying lip service. Sales people use this technique a lot, you cant help but respond to it. Being honeyfuggled is not something to be ashamed of, its part of human behaviour, I’ve fallen for it loads.

Here’s a story for you, my Mum and I went Christmas shopping a couple of years ago, its something of a tradition, we go every year. We were in a well known department store and there was a demonstration going on, the guy was captivating and engaging. He was prancing around the little area he had his stall in and he was a honeyfuggle expert. He must have said something nice to every member of the audience. Anyway, long story short, both me and my Mum spend a stupid amount of money on 2 hand whisks. That we didn’t need. That I will struggle to use. Because he made it sound like we needed them. And he liked my Mum’s teeth. The guy was brilliant!

So there you go, we all get honeyfuggled on occasion!

See you soon…..

Snarf. Haha! It means to eat something greedily.

“I say old chap, you snarfed that down” – For when you are at high society dinners.

“Stop snarfing your food Jeff” – For when you are trying to control Jeff in public

“I loved it so much, I literally snarfed it down bro!” – When you are chilling with your friends

“Who snarfed the pizza?” – When someone eats the last piece of pizza you were saving.

See? It can be used in all situations, and it somehow makes things seem more dramatic and less gross. How would you use it? Give me an example? (Oh yeah, I’m asking questions now!!)

See you soon…

Word of the week (11)

Hey there folks, you know we all like words that are obscure? We wouldn’t all be taking up this little corner of the internet if were didn’t right? Well this one is a doozy! I love to find out that weird things have actual words for them, it makes me smile quite a lot, so I’m passing that smile on to you guys with this one………

An aglet is that little bit of plastic at the end of a shoelace! Mind blown right? Who even knew that had a name? Amazing! Next time one of those pesky little things comes off you can announce in a loud voice that you have just broken your aglet and see how many people think you have broken some obscure bone in your hand or something?!

Why is it so comforting to find things that have names that you didn’t know had names before? It just is though. Am I right?

Go and check your aglets, they might be missing and you need to tell someone stat!!

See you soon word lovers.……..

Word of the week (10)

So carrying on with the recent theme of words for annoying people I found this one, I love it! I’ve used it twice already! I feel very extra saying it too! We all know one of these, and if you don’t then its probably you!

A blatteroon is a senseless babbler or boaster. You know when you are with your buddies and some dude is just talking utter poop? Well they are a blatteroon. You should tell them, in a nice way of course!

How may blatteroons will you encounter today? Keep your eyes peeled, they are everywhere!!

See ya soon……..

Word of the week (9)

Hey you guyyyyyyyys! (Bonus points for those who said it in a Goonies kind of way!)

Did you encounter any crapehangers this week? I see a few regularly, well that’s not actually true, I try not to see some regularly!!!

Onwards and upwards my friends. This word is great, it sounds as dramatic as it means, I mean, double V in a word, bold, I love it!

Shivviness is actually nothing to do with prison (shiv, prison weapon, see where I was going with that?), no, its way more mainstream than that. It’s the uncomfortable feeling you get when you wear new underwear! Amazing! Who knew there was a word for this?! I feel the need to get some underwear now just so I can create an opportunity to use it.

I urge you to go and get some new pants, wear them and complain about their shivviness to anyone who will listen!

See you soon………..

Word of the week (8)

Not late. Go me! Haha!

This word is something that describes at least one person you know. Everyone knows someone like this!

Crapehanger, someone who always sees the gloomy side of life. Think Eeyore, he was a total crapehanger, but everyone still loved him! It’s another way of saying someone is a pessimist.

So there you go, another word to add to your vocabulary!

See you soon gang!

Word of the week (7) Late! Yikes!

I must apologise for my tardiness on word of the week, there was no big drama, no life hanging reason as to why I didn’t do it, no incident to render me incapable. To be perfectly honest, and I do like to be honest with you, I couldn’t motivate myself to write this post. Rude I know! I just left you hanging without a word dear friends, I am sorry.

This word actually describes me!

I am a paralian! It means a person who lives by the sea. I live in a beautiful seaside town with a small high street and a busy harbour. My town is famous for its oysters and people come from all over the world to try them. I live in Whitstable in Kent. Look it up, you won’t be disappointed. Lots of the buildings here are interesting and we have great road names like ‘middle wall’ and ‘Squeeze gut ally’ I have no idea why they are called that, I should look it up really.

Are you a paralian? Tell me about it, what is your town like? Do you overlook the sea? I don’t, but I am on a hill so I have a sea view.

See ya soon folks……
