About The WotD is rather topical ... it was used to describe beloved…

Previous Entry Jun. 22nd, 2004 @ 03:49 pm Next Entry
The WotD is rather topical ... it was used to describe beloved Assistant!Jo not five minutes ago by one of our more refined colleagues.

Today's WotD is:
Ladette
noun

Brit informal A young woman who behaves in a boisterously assertive manner and engages in heavy drinking sessions


Ladette came to prominence in the 90s, coined by the British tabloid press to describe the new wave of female TV and radio presenters, such as Zoe Ball and Sarah Cox, who indulged in laddish behaviour. TypicalLadette characteristics included drinking, swearing, smoking and footie supporting ... the term is now generally used to describe young ladies that enjoy a swift pint down the pub

I can't resist... your icon looks familiar, but where is it from exactly? A year ago I'd have sold a kidney for an icon like this.

It's terrible, and embarassing.
::contemplates need to light up to cope with said horror::
Though will probably stick to extensive collection of Spike Smoking icons.

I heard this authentic bit of 'slice of life' dialogue today. I stepped into a lift into the middle of conversation between a pouting girl, and pouting lad:

Girl: .... and then she was running down the street shouting, "that's our bus, that's our bus!"
Boy: In the road?
Girl: Yeah, and she was waving her arms. But it wasn't our bus. It was going the wrong way.
Boy: Any reason she was so pissed?
Girl: She was just being a total muppet.

The sound of London.

Hee.

Why is that the young pout so much these days? Are they trying to offset the start of wrinkles - surely life can't be that bad!

[gobi interrupts the internet search for footie results, contemplates the case of Black Butte Porter in the garage and resumes cursing the abysmal lack of footie coverage on US TV]
