I was amused recently when someone was describing a friend of hers as 'a bitter, and sour-faced old hag'.
"I think I know exactly who you're talking about" I said; and I was spot-on!
It doesn't take many words to describe some of our better known 'celebs'. I'm sure you'll know instantly who I'm talking about below.
Etonian, Bullingdon, buffoon.
Gilded, combover, clown.
Marxist, anti semitic, windbag.
Wee Kranky; the Caledonian.
The Russian Rambo. I could go on....
We live in an age of such celebrity, when certain people are also simply known by their given names. Donald, Boris, OJ, Amy, Jools, Oprah, etc. There must be thousands of Donalds in the world, but we only think of one (other than the Duck).
As for me, I'm that 'balding, bearded, hermit'.
Boris, don't know, Corbyn, don't know, Kim Jong Un, Putin. Oh, it wasn't a quiz then.ReplyDelete
Too easy for a quiz!Delete
With some extra time I scored 3 for the 1st section - more Eurocentric than I can manage...ReplyDelete
And who the blazes is Jools? I won't put my guess here for fear of being laughed off the blogosphere.
And now back to the real world.
Again you need to be a Brit'. Jools is Jools Holland, a well loved musician.Delete
I know how the locals describe me. Two distinctive words, fat and foreigner, followed by my husbands nickname. No doubt there who they're referring to.ReplyDelete
Everyone here has a nickname, some handed from father to father. Helps when a dozen people can have the same name, being all called after grandfathers and grandmothers.
A neighbour told me I had a nickname, but refused to tell me what it is... I can only imagine!Delete
'Woman with the dog' for 13 years but since the opening of our village community café I've transformed to my forename with a few more people!ReplyDelete
That sounds like a compliment to me. If I was known as 'the bloke with the dog' I'd be quite happy.Delete
I wonder how that woman describes her enemies?ReplyDelete
The person to whom she was referring is actually quite nice.Delete
Foul-mouthed, fiery, right wing bitch.ReplyDelete
That sounds like me; other than the 'bitch' bit.Delete
I was going to fit lovable in there somewhere but I didn't want to cause a riot.Delete
I'm surprised you-know-who hasn't thrown her hat into the ring with a few insults; give her time.Delete
She got into a right two and eight over me last week.Delete
I find the simple, concise, four-letter word beginning with 'C' covers most people, including myself.ReplyDelete
And they're growing in numbers.Delete
Aren't they just.Delete
"Wee Kranky"....hahaha! Good one!ReplyDelete
She's a sweetie; and, of course, a pain in the arse.Delete
I am sure some of my neighbors, who do not know me, have names for me also. The fact that I am old, take care of feral cats and grow lots of flowers gives them much to choose from.ReplyDelete
We used to have a neighbour called Mrs Old (her real name), so we named her younger neighbour Mrs Not so Old. Everyone has a name!Delete
"The Chicken Lady" - at the pottery studio due to my enjoyment of sculpting my little Cheeky Chickens...ReplyDelete
and who knows in the neighborhood ?? since DH and I take care of the feral cats in the area.
Well, it's good to be known for what you do; it makes you a 'specialist'.Delete
Me? In my head I am that slim, attractive, middle aged glamour puss .....until I look in the mirror.ReplyDelete
I know the feeling.Delete
Old Grey Mare - because I am old, grey, and I ain't what I used to be.ReplyDelete
We have two 'old grey mares' who live in a field below our house; they are both charming.Delete
Hot cat lady.ReplyDelete
That sounds pretty good!Delete
Crazy Bird WomanReplyDelete
Who lives with the Crazy Fish Man?Delete
