Word of the week: Finch

Finch

Defined as: The surname of a narrow minded social worker who places Big Bird in Ohio and far away from Sesame Street.

“Eliza, finch is a seed eating bird.”

Well, I never said Miss Finch didn’t eat seeds did I?  Besides it is a word from this month’s movie.  Think any one will guess what it is?

Galaxy Quest’s Word of the Week: Gorignak

More specifically, in the movie “Gorignak” is the alien term used to describe a large, angry, and seemingly indestructible rock monster. In urban dictionaries, one definition is also an insult meaning obese.

Brando tried to discuss a “relevant conundrum” with Nesmith but he was brushed off.

Galaxy Quest’s Word of the Week: Omega 13

Defined as:
While many believed this was a reactor capable of obliterating all matter in the universe in 13 seconds it is actually a matter re-arranger that allows for a 13 second jump into the past.

“Eliza, it’s not real, you understand that right? It is from Galaxy Quest.”

It is still a word isn’t it?

Word of the Week: R.O.U.S.

R.O.U.S. is defined as:
Rodents of Unusual Size
-seen in The Princess Bride

I call HT an R.O.U.S. behind her back.

Stop it or I’ll call you Count Rugen next.

Word of the Week: Blave

Welcome to 2011!  I’m taking a break from the rather colorful book of slang and will be sharing delightful words from books or movies.

Blave is defined as:
To bluff
-said by Mad Max in The Princess Bride 1

HT called me on it when I blaved that I could read her mind.  I can’t.  Not yet any ways.

Word of the Week: Dimber

Dimber is defined as:
Pretty. A dimber cove; a pretty fellow. Dimber mort; a pretty wench. CANT.
-1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue by Francis Grose

You could call me dimber.

“Oh you’re a pretty fellow are you?”

Hey, it is dimer mort to you! Why can’t a mutant ant be pretty?

“I didn’t say you weren’t. But I really don’t think those fake eyelashes are necessary.”

They are hard to apply.

“Those would be my special golden eyelashes I was saving for a photo shoot. You are more of a dimber damber aren’t you?”

Dimber damber?

“The completest cheat.”

Quiet human!

Word of the Week: Dicked in the Nob

Dicked in the Nob is defined as:
Silly. Crazed.
-1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue by Francis Grose

Another phrase that can describe HT to a tee. It is funny since she uses this expression rather frequently.

“Eliza, you are dicked in the nob if you think I’m going to order you a kid’s battery powered Jeep. You’re two inches tall!”

Two and a half.

Word of the Week: Dew Beaters

Dew Beaters is defined as:
Feet. Cant.
1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue by Francis Grose

HT is going away and is insisting on bringing her flip flops to cover her dew beaters! It is going to be snowing! How did I end up with such a translator? Human, where are you going with gloves on it is a balmy 50 degrees outside. I think your internal thermostat is broken.

Word of the Week: Ducks & Drakes

Ducks & Drakes is defined as:

To make ducks and drakes: a school-boy’s amusement, practised with pieces of tile, oyster-shells, or flattish stones, which being skimmed along the surface of a pond, or still river, rebound many times. To make ducks and drakes of one’s money; to throw it idly away.
-1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue by Francis Grose

“What is with the phrases Eliza Leigh?  Do we need to change it to Phrase of the Week?”

Don’t be ridiculous, it came from a dictionary.

“…?”

Oh, just go back to bed while I bid on eBay and make ducks & drakes with your debit card.

“WHAT?!”

Yeah, I know how badly you wanted that set of three Totoro dolls!
