Hanging Noodles on Your Ears on Fatless Friday

You heard me right. I’m not hanging noodles on your ears! Actually, this is the title of a book my oldest son gave my husband for his birthday a couple of months ago. It’s all about idioms from around the world and it is pretty funny!

Here’s just a few:

I’m not hanging noodles on your ears: I’m not pulling our leg (Russian)

A camel can’t see it’s own hump: Pot calling the kettle black.

Thighs shaped like banana trees: A compliment to an attractive woman (Bengali)

Look for hairs inside an egg: Nitpick (Italian)

By candlelight, a goat looks like a lady: Look before you leap (French)

Strange, huh?

Then I found a page that had some words that have been delisted out of the dictionary. Frankly, I think some of these should be revived. What do you think?

Vocabularian: one who thinks too much attention to words

Tardiloquent: talking slowly

Somnificator: one who induces sleep in others. (I always pray my preacher husband doesn’t become one of these!)

Sarcast: writer or speaker who is sarcastic

Natiform: buttock-shaped

Idiorepulsive: self-repellent

Bowelless: lacking mercy

Anonymuncle: an anonymous, small time writer

Hhhhmmmm, look how many of those deal with writers! What’sup with that? From one anonymuncle to another, I proudly wear the badge of Vocabularian and try ever so hard to be a Sarcast. I’m bowelless when faced with anything that takes away from my obsession with the written word. And if I ever happen to become a somnificator, well, just send me a natiform card and tell me to wake up and get with the program!

Oh yes, it is a FAT-LESS Friday for me. I weighed in last night and lost another 1.8 pounds. This gives me a total weight loss of 17.8 pounds! Woohoo! I think it may be time to go down a size, but I am loving the loose feeling of my clothes!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Funny Sherrinda!

    A camel can't see it's own hump, is a keeper.

    This does feel like a little slam on writer's. It must be true that no one but us understands these crazy ways.

    *Sigh*

    Enjoy your weekened, you should buy an outfit to show off those 17 pounds you shed!

  2. Haahaa! These are awesome. Thanks for making me smile, Sherrinda. I'm curious as to what buttock-shaped looks like. LOL

    Congrats on the poundage. Amazing and I'll bet you look so good. 🙂
