yesterday i learnt a new word




i've just uploaded all my new sketchbook/notebooks on etsy and my back is killing me. just thought i'd post a couple more photos of the new twist design...off now to watch mindless telly and possibly eat some malteasers...hmmmmmm...malteasers...
ps...just to lower the tone somewhat (and you know how i love a tone-lowerer) i learnt a new word yesterday. sharting. it means to fart and follow through with a bit of, well, shit. i howled with so much much laughter, i actually slightly weed myself. thankfully i didn't shart. now that would've been ironic. did any of you lot ever hear this word, or am i so not down with kids it passed me by? i can't believe i've lived my entire 33 and 3 quarter years without knowing this word, and i keep trying to slip it into conversations. not easy when you're in a meeting with the bank manager or talking to your son's headmistress, trust me.

Learned it from some Ben Stiller movie a few years back. And I'm almost 60 years old--so glad you're finally catching up!

Like su49san, I first heard it in "Along Came Polly". Philip Seymour Hoffman's character used the term when talking to Ben Stiller's character. I can't say I've ever heard it in conversation though [good luck with that!].

Like Tamara and su49san, I also heard it in the movie. The only person I actually know that uses in a conversation is my boyfriend and he only does it front of me and his parents and his daugther...okay, maybe that's too many people already. But, hey, boys are gross no matter how old they are.
