Bellcabulary (words and phrases that float my boat)


  • Legenvy: This term derives from the pure leg envy I have of my buddy Inga's pins. Being a short limbed lass, I can't help but wonder what it would be like to have legs up to here (holds hands up to head). And let's face it, girl's got some fine long limbs!

  • Chinple: Why do chinples (chin-pimples) always pop up at the most inopportune times? Like before a date or when you're being introduced to new people. You can't help but feel like there's a big red arrow pointing to said chinple and the whole world is staring at you. 

  • Accent goggles: Similar to beer goggles, a beautiful accent can transform an average bloke into an Adonis. Approach with caution and always ask yourself, 'would I like them if they didn't have that sexy accent?' And DO NOT combine the two evils of beer + accent. 

  • Correctomon: Those who continually correct you on the most minuscule, insignificant details. i.e. 'it's 8.30.' 'No, it's actually 8.32.' They must always be right. If they were a Pokemon, they would be a correctomon. Similar to one-uppers. The best way to shut them up is to tell them to stop being such a correctomon! It's borza!

    • Drunk and generous: Why oh why do we get so benevolent after a few bevvys? Yeah, you feel like the most charitable chick in town but it's very depressing when you check the bank balance the morning after the night before. A word to the wise, don't go near any shops either, you'll be asking yourself 'did I really need to buy two packets of cigarettes, UHU Glue and birthday candles from the Seven Eleven?' Ugh. I blame it on being drunk and generous. 

    Buying this crap seemed like a great idea at the time. It was my birthday so I guess that justifies it a tad. Not exactly sure what I was planning with the glue.
      Legenvy. Case in point, Miss Inga Kool-Clarke.

      1. Pointing out the EXACT time is only permitted when waiting for lunch dates or trying to leave work on the DOT.

      2. Thanks for the correction! Hehe *pokey tongue* but agree, it's all relative to context.

      4. Hold on... how do you wear goggles on your ears? Accents are something you hear...

        I propose the Accent Gage, an optional accessory that goes with the Beer Goggles. Accents are usually hit or miss and just like a gage it's either hot or cold... or even in between.

      5. Good point... Accent muffs perhaps?
