One Word Mood Changer Of The Day

Posted by: Giancarlo Angulo in Categories: rePosts, WOTD.

A Thank You To Kottke here:

Mamihlapinatapai, a most succinct word.

It describes a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start. This could perhaps be translated more succinctly as “eye-contact implying ‘after you…’”. A more literal approximation is “ending up mutually at a loss as to what to do about each other”.Heartbreaking. I wish we had an English word for that feeling. (via cyn-c)

Hmm damn you could substitute: how I wish this would happen to me!

Word Of The Day 2008 04 28!

Pizzled: from here:

I actually try to never do this, My policy is that the person who I’m with deserves more attention than a text message or a phone call. I try to do this because the only person whom I have really any control of Is me. Let others be insensitive, I live my way!

The feeling you get when someone whips out their Blackberry aka crackberry or cell phone and begins having a conversation with someone. It’s a cross between pissed off and puzzled.

I was pizzled the other night when my husband started talking on his Crackberry at the dinner table.
