Lately, I've been a little snarky and un-southern. Really, even Miss SLPS has a “not so Lilly-esque” side. I've been running around my Florida neighborhood with my University of Kentucky flag in tow, just to rub in the fact we're SEC Champions 2011 over the Florida Gators.
I've been posting to facebook snarky statements like, "Yes, Mockingjay is finally mine at the library. If you're looking for it, you can't have it for two weeks, bwahahaha!"
Okay - I deleted that last one because it was too snarky, even for me.
By definition, snarky means unpleasant and scornful. So I wouldn't exactly say I was being unpleasant or scornful (well, unless you're a Gators fan).
For some reason, I was thinking (which can be disastrous): what other words, made up or real, do I use in my everyday vernacular, most people having no idea what they mean? Other than “snarky".
Well, look....I found one of those nifty word putter-together-picture-making-thingys. I used a shamrock for obvious reasons and of course, my signature color, and filled it with words that mean some sort of something in my life.
Most of these have come into use over the years through Auntshleigh (my BFF, sister, Lallie’s Godmother and oldest friend), all having some sort of inner meeting.
I feel I must explain "Snoofballs." For some odd reason, Lallie calls the movie Night at the Children's Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian "snoofballs." I have no clue why, some crazy night with Lallie and Husband while I was off Junior Leaguing. So picture this: Lallie wants to watch Snoofballs. Mommy has no idea what Snoofballs is or where she heard that word (also getting concerned). Lallie proceeds to throw a super tantrum which lasts about 30 minutes until Husband walks in the door and says "Oh Snoofballs....that’s the movie." End tantrum.
Really? Note to Husband. When making up new words with Lallie, please inform Mommy of said word. Thank you.
I'm curious to know what words you use daily that mean something only to you. I might steal them and start using them myself. I love talking in code.
That being said, I'm out for the rest of the week. You know my dear soon-to-be sister-in-law Jess (Husband's brother's fiancée)? Well, her wedding shower is this weekend, so I'm taking a trip to Kentucky to be with her (less Lallie and Husband who will be staying here). After all, I am one of her bridesmaids so I'd like to be there for her big day! Speaking of that....note to self, call bridal store to find out when dress will be arriving.
Happy Weekend Y'all!
