Mimi Meme.....

A little while ago Mimi Queen of Memes challenged her readers to do this meme, on pain of being locked up in the dungeon if you don't. So as I don't fancy spending any time in a cold dark dungeon I thought I'd better give it a whirl even if I am a bit late with it.

1.Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4 and write what it says.
'...covered with water spots that couldn't possibly......'

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What can you touch?
The wall!

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Commando - a documentary about a group of men training to be accepted in the Royal Marines.

4. Without looking, guess what time it is.
I'm guessing it's 10 a.m.

5. Now look at the clock.
Right I've looked - what now????

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
The hum of the racing game MWM is playing on his XBox downstairs!

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
Last night when we came back from our meal and the pub.

8. Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
The time so I'd know how long I have to blog before I have to go and start lunch.

9. Did you dream last night?
If I did I don't remember!

10. When did you last laugh?
Last night whilst out with friends, over something silly but it carried on all night. We were like a bunch of hyenas!

11. What is on the walls of the room you are in?
It's mostly lined with books.

12. Seen anything weird lately?
Most of the contenstants on the X Factor! It's supposed to be a talent show for goodness sake.

13. What do you think of this quiz?
It's OK when you've nothing better to blog about, and you can slip another award in at the end! No don't look now wait until you've finished reading the meme!

14. What is the last film you saw?
It was that good I can't remember!

15. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
A bungalow, a makeover and a trip around the world, twice - in case I missed something the first time round!

16. Tell me something about you that I don’t know?
I have a bent index finger. You want to see a picture now don't you?

17. If you could change one thing about the world, what would you do?
Eradicate evil.

18. Where are you on the war in Iraq?
We have no business being there.

19. Would you ever consider living abroad?
Only if all my family would come with me.

20. What do you want God to say to you when you get to heaven?
You did good girl.


And just when you thought they'd all be given out - I got another award!

The Rotten Lovely Correspondent gave me this beauty.

Now I looked this up on 'World Wide Words' and here's what they say Bodacious means.

Blatant, remarkable, audacious, impressive, or attractive.
As you can tell from the wide-spectrum definition, this American word is one of those wide-ranging superlatives to which speakers turn when they want to say that some quality is present in large degree; that quality might be unreasonableness, impressiveness, insolence, or (most recently) female attraction, specifically big breasts. This last meaning seems to have become widely known in the middle 1980s after it was employed in the film An Officer and a Gentleman in 1982. Another film, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure of 1989, contributed to its growing nationwide popularity.
As a result, many people would guess the word is modern, but the earliest record (actually of the adverb bodaciously, which appeared as body-aciously) is from as long ago as 1832. The adjective is known from the 1840s, often as bowdacious in the early years. This leads lexicographers to think that both it and the adverb are from a English West Country dialect form, written as boldacious or bowldacious, which was probably an amalgam of bold and audacious.
Among older users and before its recent surge to popularity, the word seems to have been most common in the American South, though not among African-Americans. One of the earliest examples is from Georgia, dated 1845: “She’s so bowdacious unreasonable when she’s riled”.

I have to say “She’s so bowdacious unreasonable when she’s riled” that is spot on! Also MWM would agree with this 'female attraction' (he'd better!), and as I've put a lot of weight on since I've been immobile the following is true 'specifically big breasts', but as MWM keeps reminding me when I lose weight they will be the first to disappear! So I guess it's a pretty accurate description.

Now with the following description in mind I'll pass it on to the following, it doesn't mean you have all these qualities, just maybe one or two, and I'm not saying which applies to who, you have to guess at that (wink)

Blatant, remarkable, audacious, impressive, or attractive.

Have a great Sunday.

Mimi Lenox said...

I'm a certifiable Southern girl (in a pencil skirt kinda way mind you) and yes, bodacious is most certainly a word. I use it quite often and I agree you are quite bodacious, Miss Hawaiian beauty.

Thanks for doing the meme. You are out of the dungeon! You picked some fine bloggers to pass this on to and I shall investigate those I don't know about.

Have a lovely day.

Akelamalu said...

buffalodick said...

A minor XXX film in the 80s was named "Bodacious Ta-Tas", and it was about the time this word started being heard- usually paired with a pair!

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.
