To discuss a Get to Know Me interview, plus Australian slang

Get to Know Me Week

Much like my guest post on Haute Pocket last Friday giving me a gateway to post morally corrupt material, Southern Belle wanted her latest Aussie dictionary post to find refuge on my site.
Southern Belle and I already have some history, after I wrote this co-blog in part because she correctly called me out for offending an entire nation. But she has stuck with me, showing me she is more wonderful than even her fun blog led me to believe. (Yes, I linked the crap out of that paragraph.)

Today, you can find her guest post below, defining an Australian slang word I had never heard of, so enjoy.

Also today, visit her site to read a Question and Answer post we wrote together that continues my Get to Know Me Week. In it, you'll find answers about my relationship with Capricorn, religious views and a random pop culture reference or two...

Thanks to all who have already volunteered and/or already posted their prompt for Get to Know Me week. If you missed it, check here. I'm posting everyone's links at the end of the week!
Southern Belle:


A part of the body of a plant that develops, typically, from the radicle and grows downward into the soil, anchoring the plant and absorbing nutriment and moisture.

2.verb (idiom)
To have sexual intercourse with, as in: "Hey Kylie! Shane said he wants to root ya."

3. noun

Often used in the context of describing the quality of said performance, as in: "Shane is a dud (terrible) root" or "Kylie is a top (very good) root!"


root dreads
Matted hair, similar to dreadlocks, at the back of a woman's head. Caused by repetitive movement against a surface (usually a pillow) during sexual intercourse.

I'm glad some of you now finally know what that means. Everytime i hear an American say he " roots " for his home team, i crack up laughing.

Now that you know what we mean when we say " root ", just substitute it into " Andy roots for the Philadelphia Eagles " ( or whoever ) and see what hilarious mental images you come up with...

Also, just posted my " getting to know me " entry...

I could comfortably say that I could "root" for (or maybe with) the Pittsburgh Steelers.

I'm going to incorporate that into my pick-up line. Unfortunately, I'm only picking up fiance these days, but he already thinks I'm crazy.

SouthernBelle said...

And my part is actually up now. I think our interview may be the longest post I've ever done, Andy!

Also, you should check it out b/c I added some commentary.

; )

I can't wait to annoy my friends with this new word!

I'm done with my getting to know the real FunnyGal KAT post and it's up. I so totally didn't follow the rules so I hope this doesn't disqualify me from that awesome prize Andy is offering... (what? there's no prize? why did I participate again?)

Wait, so we're not supposed to offend entire nations on our blogs by wallowing in tea, stereotypes, and Robbie Williams?

Dammit. Looks like "Oi Gov'nah!" Week was a little misguided... I hope the British don't burn me with their hot, icky tea and send Robbie Williams after me. (Or don't I...?)

I posted my "get to know me" entry.
