I'm 26 today. For the record, I was 9 pounds, 11 ounces at birth, a fact my mother reminds me of with great frequency, as if I was chomping on Twinkies and HoHos in the womb. Mom, it was all water weight- I felt so bloated that day.
While I adjust to life in my late 20s, I decided I'd let Southern Belle takeover with one of her now infamous Aussie definition posts. For the occasion, she even busted out an entirely appropriate Wild ARS Chase word. Enjoy, and I'll check back with you all later, after several pieces of cake and the regrets of 25 years of wallowing in self-loathing. I'm sure there will be a post full of reflections soon.
So, thanks, Southern Belle. I knew I gave you an award for a reason.
Aussie Dictionary: Fart-ARSing around
[OK, normally we don't capitalize the ARS is the middle of fart-arsing, but since this is in your honor, WildARS, it had to be done.]
to fart-arse around: (verb)
1. to mess around with something, possibly even though you're not quite sure what you're doing.
As in "We had to call a plumber after my husband decided to fart-arse around with the pipes under the sink."
2. to generally waste time in various meaningless activities. Similar to pottering around.
As in "There wasn't much to do at work today; I spent most of the afternoon fart-arsing around on the internet."
Also to piss-fart around.
[Happy Birthday, Andy WildARS!]
