Only tossing a thing from here

Post by Rorschach » Sat Jul 18, 2015 11:19 pm

So the line is "Just save up all your nickels and dimes" and not "Just say fuck all your nickels and dimes":.

With this thematic shift, Clerks is now a whole different movie to me.

I guess it's hypothetically possible to be attracted to putting small change in your various orifices...

Two things I will never purchase from a McDonald's, summed up in one item.

-An eight dollar sandwich.
-A lobster roll.

Has anyone seen Winx? This is Cara's latest obsession. It's like an Italian knock-off of Japanese anime in which scantily-clad fairy schoolgirls magically transform into scantily-clad fairy schoolgirls. It's strangely compelling. Y'know, OTATFH.

That will catch on. It will.

Scottish English has a pleasingly large number of idioms to describe nervousness. Rather a lot of them fixate on the involuntary twitches or sounds of the sphincter as it releases nerve gas at regular intervals.

An extremely close football game in which the stakes are high, for example, might be described as 'squeaky bum time'

We also have 'My arse was sewing buttons' or the poetic: 'My arse was knitting kittens'.

There is also a rich vein of arse-related gems with which to express likelihood or disbelief such as the nicely rhyming 'Your arse is parsley' to express the unlikelihood of a clamied situation, or the strange invitation to stop trying to lie: 'Away and take a run up ma arse' or the simple expression of doubt 'Your arse.'

Next week, I'll be explaining the meaning of 'Away and raffle yer doughnut'.

And every time I hear it I remember in just how little regard I hold one Alex Ferguson.

There was a similar idiom used during my Army days: pucker factor. You'd be sleeping soundly when an unexpected vehicle would come up on the gate and the klaxons would go off. Pucker factor goes up to 8.

It ain't the lips that are puckering, sunshine.

In America that last one would simply be, "My ass."

It occasionally worries me that I'm nearly forty yet spend so much of my free time playing video games rather than, I dunno, getting absolutely any of my shit together. I think I'll blame the gaming industry.

You need to start putting your foot down, Jermy. Although it did take me quite a while to clear enough toys from the floor to find adequate room to do so. And now I look again, that space is gone.
