You have not just returned from your 'hollibobs'. You were on holiday. I can cope with 'vacation' if you are from North America.

The word 'hollibobs' has MORE LETTERS than the word that you are replacing it with.

And it makes you look dim.

Me too, Hullybobs.

I don't mind Hollibobs, but Preggo, preggers and preggy give me the rage.

Hollibobs sounds fun.

it sounds more fun than holidays.

I do not use the word and am not a fan of using words like this - but I must defend the use of this word in this instance.

The ikkles love Chrimbo! Me 'n' hubster try to fill it full of magic, we always do the Elf on a Shelf, the Xmas Eve hamperoony full of yummy treats, Santa's footprints in talcypoos, carrots for Rudolf ect ect.

This outs me massively, but DD is often Molly Moogles Mungus Lumley Pie Schrebniak III.

The other two get similar variations.

We do like to fuck about with words in our house. It's often either surreal or just plain nonsensical.

Holibobs barely scratches the surface, tbh. There, I saidit. Out n proud grin

YANBU. Except that I have never heard that word before and now wish I'd be never looked.

I also detest letters telling me that the writer is on "annual leave". It's a holiday, FFS, and it makes you seem like a tosser, not more important, to call it that.

Christmas Scone.

It is a shame, but it was really for the best. Imagine this being passed onto the next generation.

Hollibobs is dire -

But Chrimbo with the 'H' is even worse than Crimbo which makes me want to push the speaker's face into the ground & then stamp on it.. HARD!

<filled with the milk-of-human-kindness, me.>

PS - Winterval wants me to reach for my Uzi!

BIWI Wed 10-Jul-13 22:52:46

Sorry grin but holibobs always makes me smile - such a silly word. And holidays are surely all about the silly?

MmeLindor Wed 10-Jul-13 22:54:17

sad I thought better of you

So I did unfriend someone earlier for a child related boast too far BUT will she be able to see I have unfriended her or will I just disappear from her list of friends?

SconeRhymesWithGone Wed 10-Jul-13 22:57:42

Thanks for the explanations of Chrimbo. I am not sure I would have figured it out, even with context.

I am beginning to realize that we Americans just don't have many cute diminutive type words for things. A pity, really. All I can think of is veggies and panties.

<aggrieved expression>
I was just airing my Inner Hun. Didn't you like her?

Anyone remember cuntibobs from a previous thread one this topic? Now that's a word - made me laugh for weeks

MmeLindor Wed 10-Jul-13 23:13:07

Cuntibobs I can get behind.
