thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]

My hands smell funny 'cos I yoinked the refrigerator that was sitting on the back step claiming to be trash. It was all taped shut. I untaped it to take the crap out of it, and now the icky smell goes wherever I do. I am sure my car will reek of it forever. Dammit.

I bought: milk, cute shirt for Samantha, cute shirt for me, 25 CD-Rs, Hershey Dark kisses, tire stem caps, and a Mexican pizza. Fun people were at Taco Bell. And I did not miss the turn. Rah!

AMR was, as expected, the friggin jam. Guys in suits are so hot. >:D And *I* was hot! WOOHOO.

On a somewhat more somber (but unquestionably fortunate) note, Will has not keeled over and/or died. Which is good, 'cos that would be depressing! Poor fellow :/ ::feeds Will lots of bananas and sends good medical mojo::

Everyone send Will good medical mojo!

So what is it with people getting to college and deciding it's cool to just pass out for no adequately explicable reason?

You yoinked the refrigerator?


Er, yes. Does that mean something different in California?

Please note: I did NOT *boink* the refrigerator. Lest there be any confusion!


No, I just don't believe I've ever heard the word 'yoinked' or any verb terminasion like it. I do not yoink, have never seen a yoinking, etc. Can you explain what it means?


Yoink = to take something that has not recently been in your posession. Does not necessarily mean that the thing has been stolen; can, as in this context, apply to something that was up for grabs, or something that someone had borrowed that you are now forcibly reclaiming. Often heard in the following context: "Kife, yoink, gank, pilfer, lift, seize!" and is used to warn people that you are about to engage in the activity defined as 'yoinking'.

Or, in other words, yes, I can explain what it means. ;D


Thank you for that wonderful lesson, professor! Muchos gracias!

Gack is also a good word for stealing, which is another annoying quirk of mine. Stealing, that is. I take all of my friends' stuff (never letting them near mine, of course) out of their backpacks without them knowing, and give it to them about ten minutes later, or steal their backpacks, get something out of it, and run off. I am evil. Hehehe.

"Kife, yoink, gank, pilfer, lift, seize!" is going to be my new phrase o' the month.


You can feel free to add in 'gack' or whatever other terminology you choose. :D I forgot one of my own favorites, 'filch'; I would put it between 'lift' and 'seize'. If you don't mind dangling prepositions, you can also use 'abscond with'. If you feel like being vocabularially esoteric (heh! speaking of which...) you can append such goodies as 'purloin'.

I once read a story in which a character purloined sweetmeats. But that is all I remember of it. :p
