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...

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.
00dozo said…
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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
