Say What? #5

From time to time I like to share with you guys definitions I've come up with for some of the more interesting verification words I've come across while signing on to your blogs. Here's my latest instalment...


The heroine in Stieg Larsson's Millenium series



What one hunter says to the other as they approach an unsuspecting pulark




Not entirely disingenuous





Not your log




Acronym for Don't Eat Some Silly Idiot's Stew




Where the rich people are asked to go in the theatre




There's couch surfing. This is when all you can afford is a cushion.





All that's left after your friends ate the rest of your tostitos

Ah... so THAT's what those things mean! I've been collecting a few of these myself... maybe it's time to share...

Boom Boom: Just one of the many public services dufus is happy to provide

I admit I am guilty of desingem from time to time.

I just stretch the truth a little bit.

hee hee

These are good Nomie!

Quirks: At least you're not entirely disingenuous. Did you eat the rest of the tstos?
Glad you defined those terms; I had about given up, couldn't find them in any dictionary! ;)
Linda Medrano said…
Tstos sounds like a Russian ornament to me.
nonamedufus said…
TRYC: Oh, I should have told you they can only be found in the dufus dictionary. Please consult it as often as you like.
nonamedufus said…
Linda: That's right they hang their tstos on their tstrismas trees.

Heh, heh. "Punkiest" - that was quite the 'co-inky-dinky' (and exactly what I thought too!).
Leeuna said…
Hahaaa! I love these. Sometimes the words even make sense. I think the tstos was my favorite. :)
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: Yeah, you like that, eh?
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: That definition just seemed like a natural.
Nicky said…
And here I thought tstos was that nasty stuff between your toes when you pull your socks off. Huh. Learn something new everyday.

Just got one: gustrise. The phenomenon that lands panty-less pseudo-celebrities in Star magazine, when they exit limos wearing short dresses into blustery weather. First observed in more innocent times, circa mid-fifties, by Marilyn Monroe in Seven Year Itch. But she wore panties.

Never at a loss for words, it's good to see you even occasionally pilfer yours from somewhere else. Nice pilfering.

Remember, "Nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from the oven, and pilfering says it best."
nonamedufus said…
KABLOOEY: That's a very good one. I like it.
nonamedufus said…
Mike: Damn, you found me. Was it the platypus on my head that gave me away?
nonamedufus said…
HumorSmith: Pilfering says it best, indeed. That kinda explains the internet, doesn't it.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
