celebu-crotch

noun. Oh famous groin. Oh happy day!

When Agent Scully was stricken with a bizarre case of uterine worm-hole, we found solace in Jesus and vodka. And when Adrian Grenier went commando in his spandex Richard Simmons Jazzercise pants, we consulted the I Ching and sacrificed a goat to beelzebub. In short, we are doing our damnedest to heal our unnatural preoccupation with celebu-crotch. So why are you doing this to us?"

Wine and chocolate combine to form a nearly erotic taste sensation that is almost indescribable. I could eat chocolate with wine every night. Wait, I do eat chocolate with wine nearly every night. That would explain a few things... like my evolving XXL wardrobe... Anyway, as the journalistic and techno-dweebistic foundation behind this site, you know that I'm going to give you my take on the whole wine and chocolate phenomenon.

It only comes in a large size, unlike most of their other hot sandwiches that come in small or large. While I always get a small for any sandwich that has that option—it's the perfect size, not too big or small—I never have a problem polishing off a large Spicy Rizzak."

What we had was overwritten, palimpsest, by various other cultures, identities and outlooks. We were also traumatised, by the processes of colonisation, decolonisation and the failures of the newly independent state that all we see is the floccinaucinihilipilification of our character.' What did you say? I wanted to ask. But then, if he wanted to talk to me he would have talked to me in simple terms. As it stood, he was talking to himself including addressing himself with this thinga-longwordsomethingortheother-majiggy. I thought of cutting his head off, putting it a blender so that I cut all his words to manageable, if not rational, proportions. 'We hear of "An African solution to an African problem", but how many of the problems have we solved? You can't solve a problem if you are the problem. That demands very serious introspection and self conquest, something we do not have both the intention and the capacity of doing.' "

Real citation: "The last few days have been goodish, actually. After all the finals panic, I did suprisingly well on my japanese test, and with a few hours to kill before the bike shop opened (I had to buy an adapter for my tires), I went to the library's new books area, and actually, checked out new books--Paul Celan: Selections and some blackwell anthology on epistemology with essays by a whole bunch of professors that I'm going to, eventually, meet over the course of my grad school visits. (call it essay-pionage...or not). I took and nap which seemed like it lasted all last night, and even made a livejournal post appologizing for skipping the party at Stephanie and Jessie's only to realize that it was 10:00 at night (after I made breakfast and got dressed for church). When I saw a party going on next door, I realized the error of my ways, deleted the post, and sat around for another half-hour, reading, before I decided to go the party.

diddly-bleeping-squat

noun. On a scale of zero to zilch, this would be there.

Real citation: "If it's _legal_ for our Administration to use Son Of Carnivore and the Patriot Act to monitor U.S. citizen's telecomms, it should be legal to SHUT DOWN the Iraqi cell networks and make possession of RF transmission devices also a bullet-in-ear death penalty condition. Even so, in terms of Jammers, what they are talking about is the equivalent of Shortstop mortar fuze spoofers for cell and remote firing mechanisms and I _doubt seriously_ if they have enough ERPS or area of effect to do diddly bleeping squat to the F-22's 'sigint collection suite'. Because they aren't doing diddly squat to the Iraqi's telecomms. And because, if it's all like previous generations, the ALR-94 is in fact operating in the 4-5 to 20GHZ FIRE CONTROL bands /well beyond/ the radio and cell networks operating at 750MHz to 2GHz range. Certainly comparing these devices (later in the article) to Carrier Deck environments filled with MEGAWATTS of ATC, INS alignment, ACLS, and radio test is ludicrous."

Real citation: "You never fight the god, just go inside and pilfer all the treasure and fight battles. It's examples such as these that take well-worn clichés - such as the RPG blob or bat, skeleton, etc and make that cliché into something fresh and interesting. Not to mention extremely silly. I mean there are conversations you have with the blob 'heavies' - yes tough guy mini-boss blobs who threaten to do you in. The whole scenario is just hilarious, as all the enemies inside the giant blob are laughably weak. Just imagine a three year old threatening to beat you up - would you feel scared? And so it is with the blob henchmen, or henchblobs."

phlegmocracy

noun. Rule by coughHACKgak! Excuse me... What were we talking about?

Real citation: "As time passes me by, I guess these new catchphrases do too. I remember it was 'tolerance' for a while.

I always thought I would be good at something like this, maybe even revolutionary, with words like parahabitation or phlegmocracy. 'Coexistence' is something your mom would say to insinuate who to hang out with at school and who to, well, 'coexist' with."

warlorditude

noun. A quality found in only a few rare hamsters.

Real citation: "Isn't 'spent some time in an army' a pretty standard background for fighters and warlords? Is your objection that studying magic and going to war is too much? Make the character a fighter[warlord] or something, then - the point is that multiclassing into warlord won't provide you with one of the basic aspects of warlorditude until you can swap a power too."

quasi-sorta-medieval-ish

adj. When used in the expression "I'm gonna go quasi-sorta-medieval-ish on your ass!", even squirrels and bunnies won't flee.

Real citation: "On a personal note, since I haven't talked to you ingame about it Rae, it'll be a very tough time convincing Kaeriel to care one way or another about the Sun'S Warmth enough to take that degree of action. He (and kind of myself OOC) sees them as kind of silly and harmless, and especially in a quasi-sorta-medieval-ish fantasy setting, the escort or prostitute is just kind of a thing that exists and will continue to do so, organized or otherwise."

verb. The worst part of the buffoonological process.

Real citation: "I haven't been inside a WalMart since July 24, 2002, but it sounds like the same managers are there who caused me to cease giving them my custom.

Tomb Raider mega-boobies syndrome

noun phrase. Does this really require a definition? If not, I'll be playing Tomb Raider.

Real citation: "I have several gripes about toy human reproductions: girl dolls always have huge heads of an impossible shape and a wire-thin body (the Bratz® merrily took it to a further extreme), while boys' 'action figures' all have steroid-enhanced muscles and for increased contrast a head way too small. (Typical example: the WWE action figures.) Non-caucasian dolls are desperatingly rare: 'African' and other ethnic Barbies usually are just made in a different color, there are practically no chinese, hindu, african, middle-eastern, eskimo, etc. characters that look half-decently realistic. Oh, and what's with the 'Tomb Raider' mega-boobies syndrome? My Resident Evil Ada Wong (came with an amazing plant creature) has bosoms as big as her cranium. Each."
