That's What She Said

Since Merriam-Webster has so graciously honored the Lone Star State with the inclusion of the term "Texas Hold 'Em" in the dictionary, I have decided to honor my fellow citizens of Dallas with a segment entitled:
"That's What She Said: Words I've Nominated for Merriam-Webster"
JANKY
Pronunciation: \ˈjəŋke\
Function:noun, verb, adjective
Etymology:Middle English
Date: 21st century
1: refers to something that does not work, is unreliable, or is generally messed up pretty bad.
Examples: a bad laptop= janktop; a bad car=jankmobile; bad toilet=janktank; bad pda=jankberry; when someone is messed up, they are janktified; when someone has ruined something, they have janked it up.
BUTTACRUST
Pronunciation:\ˈbə-tər-ˌkrustt\
Function: noun, verb
Etymology: Cortneyism
Date: 21st century
1: the opposite of a muffin-top, when a person decides to wear tight pants and display their backside in a manner showing the spillage of excess skin up, above, and over the pack of their slacks.
Examples of usage in a sentence: "I cannot see five feet in front of me thanks to that chick's buttacrust." "Oh yes, she was a very nice person, but was one buttacrustin' fool!"
This week in Summer School:
When a student asks what they're supposed to be learning, it is perfectly acceptable for the teacher to respond with a simple "We teach the crap."
When a student complains that their calculator keeps giving them the wrong answer, it is also perfectly acceptable to respond by saying "A calculator is only as smart as the person who's pushing the buttons."
Quote of the Day:
"Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles."
Isiah 30:31
Anne Graham's comments on this really made me think, in lieu of what changed in my life yesterday. She asks, "Is there someone else who is leading you to join with him or her in decisive action? Instead of blindly saying 'I'll go with you' take a moment to pray and ask God for His direction. Then wait until He answers you. "
Thank you, Lord, for helping me see your direction - the direction in which I were meant to go. :)
