  • This morning I realised that 'now that my hands are clean' can't be used to describe a state in which my hands are clean before I dirty them. Thinking on this.

  • bell hooks in 'Eating the Other' (essay) uses 'work' surrounded by quotes in the sense of 'work it' - use something, profit from something (usually your booty) - this is just delicious. Commodity culture... "works" both the idea that racial difference marks one as Other... (and you'll have to read the article to see what the complement to that idea is, because it's both complex and key, so taking it out of context doesn't really work for me)

  • apparently already had this on my 'miscellanea' list - was it for the reason I wanted to add it now, though? Listed in the sense of being an equivalent part of speech to 'without'. The interesting part is that, like 'less' used in this sense, it (edit: sometimes? My example contradicts this!) seems to imply an active taking-away. Sort of a continuum: without–absent–less. Hmm!

    examples for clarification:
    "absent any sense of morality" (synonym: 'lacking', pronunciation: /əb'sent/, /æb'sent/)
    "£40 less a £10 discount" (synonym: 'minus', prosody de-emphasises the 'less' as it would if it were replaced by 'minus' - try it)

Or instead 'the living God'/'the living Christ'? Ah — I'm thinking as I type here, I think it's indeed the last one. So:

    the living Christ : the living fuck :: sweet mother of God : sweet mother of fuck.

  • a phrase it took me bloody ages to remember. I knew somewhere in my mind there was a phrase somehow complement to 'face like a slapped arse' or 'face like a bulldog licking piss off a nettle', both of which use ugliness as something pretty much thrown onto a face by chance (or misfortune or stupidity…)

    The happy complement? I spent a day some weeks ago with an entirely stupid face on thanks to something-or-other ridiculously joyful (I genuinely now don't recall), and had the infuriatingly persistent tip-of-the-tongue/presque vu* moment as to what the word for it actually was, if indeed there was one. I knew it was something like 'happy as a pig in shit', except for faces — and it hit me just now, as they do. Aha!

    Interestingly there's this distinction (courtesy of Wiktionary):

    The term is ambiguous and may indicate either a genuine broad smile (e.g. smug happiness) or a fake broad smile (e.g. trying to hide or get away with something).
    Smug and fake are two sides, but I've a feeling there might be another — an obliviously happy beaming which'd indicate you might as well be eating shit since you don't know what you're doing, or that you do know and you're still happy about it. Exactly that kind of overwhelming blitheness. I might have mistakenly transferred this meaning over from pig in shit (any thoughts?) but I'm happy enough to've resolved that pesky presque vu.

  • The response to being blessed for a sneeze in Iran. See afiyat bashe.

    June 16, 2009

  • 'I wish you good health', said after a sneeze. The response? Elahi shokr, 'Thank God for my health!'

    'In Iran one sneeze is bad luck but a second sneeze clears the slate and everyone is relieved. So, like seeing magpies!'

  • Rastafarian/Jamaican. Brothers. Kinship or peer bonds.

  • goodness, unlisted. UK slang. Blood, as in bredren, as in mate. Sounds more like bled. Phoneticise our vowel please researchers. (Not you.)

    June 14, 2009

  • No, eeeeecht. It's a fabulous German word that I think I like best to translate as "proper". "Das ist echt Scheiße" = "That's proper shite." as in "a well and truly awful situation".

    Current UK slang would translate it as "well", viz. "das ist echt gut" = "that's well good" (innit blud).

  • but I do remember this one! I wonder if one could describe it as a kind of subjunctive? I haven't got a clue, it's 3.30am. But "falls x" can be translated as "should x (be the case, etc.)"

    NB context of this comment is strictly German

  • another one I don't remember at all in any meaningful, rootsy way — how? Surely in four years of German learning I must have used it quite enough.

  • three magpie geese flew
    past
    out of time
    - we were sitting on the balcony -
    honking
    dully at the blunt edge of night.
    the image remained
    awhile:
    pale bellies in silhouette against the
    old tree,
    motion challenging
    rest.

  • Uhh, yeah. Was just freestylin'. Kinda. I remember writing something along a vaguely similar theme about 2 computers ago; don't have it any more. Just wishing I was somewhere cold right now instead of drowning in perspiration at midnight ... if I don't have the fan on my fingers slip off the keyboard.

  • oh, hello! (i never really wander through this place, mostly just adding a word and then out again. it's like my little filofax.)

  • There's an apology to you on vegetarian and I repeat it here. I'm sorry, I really lost it yesterday. Upon reflection I don't think you were picking on vegans/vegetarians and it was wrong of me to take it out on you.

  • Why my name, do you think? I'm curious. :) (Feel free to message me about it elsewhere, if you'd like.)

    April 8, 2008

  • Thank you so much for the Guardian Books change one letter site that you linked to -- through the fooking glass nearly made me laugh till I cried.

  • Oh, it's you! Hello! I didn't know! It's so nice to find people here, and you have such fabulous words.
