Bloody – which I got from reading too many historical romance novels. It was a way for the hero in the story to sound tough without using any swear words. Which is kind of funny when I think about how much sex went on…
Dodgy – I heard this word in a song recently on someone’s blog and it made me laugh. It’s akin to a word we use in my house to describe some of my cats who are a bit untrustworthy and socially maladjusted. We call those cats sketchy, or sketchballs.
Git – Ron used this word a few times in HP, referring to Malfoy, I think.
Fancy – This is one of my favorites when referring to a member of the opposite sex. For example, I definitely fancy George Clooney over Brad Pitt.
Piker – My son brought this one home and it seems to refer to some lazy-ass git.
Shite – My sister was married to a Scotsman for a time and she introduced to me this word which I often use instead of the Americanized shit, which, frankly, just sounds rude.
Snog or Snogging – Once again, thanks to HP I now think of kissing as snogging.
Wanker – Another lovely word courtesy of my former Scottish brother-in-law, as in, he’s a right wanker isn’t he? Not complimentary.
All these lovely words almost make me wish for a re-unification!
Meanwhile, we’ve had snow flying since last night and I am absolutely ecstatic to be home and not having to go anywhere.
