Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : Texas Tidbits...To make you smile! :-)

Texas Tidbits...To make you smile! :-)

Localism Colloquialisms-Huh?

JUST FOR FUN!! 

Click for the definition of colloquialism. I just never get enough of the Texas slang! Slang that is used locally can also be called an idiom. It becomes almost its own language. I know I've missed a passel of 'um so if you would contribute I would appreciate it! Add to the Texas sayings but let's start a collection of other states and areas! I have attempted to place my own opinion of the definition of these sayings. They may mean something else for someone else.

                   Here's to you, Texas!             

Midnight thirty, Noon thirty...12:30 am or pm.                                                                 

Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick...most things are!

Knee-high to a bucket...little?

His cheese done slid off his cracker!...not so bright?

I'm fixin' to...getting around to it.

I'm beepin'...call waiting on your cell phone.

Ya can't fix stupid...self explanatory.

Yore diggin' yone grave!...getting yourself into trouble!

Buh By y'all...goodbye everyone.       

Mamanem...(mama and them)...We had a great weekend with Mamanem.

I feel like I been chewed up and spit out!...not feeling so great :-)   

I feel like I've been hit by a truck...kinda like being chewed up and spit out.                                                  

That dog don't hunt!...it just won't work.

She's shaped like an upside down coke bottle...woman with good figure. 

He's old as dirt...an old man.   She's got a face for radio!...better to be heard and not seen!

Dumb as a bucket of rocks...fairly unintelligent.   Well it's six one way, half dozen thother...equal.

I don't know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt...extreme confusion.

This place is as bad as a box of cereal. Look at all the nuts, fruits and flakes...busy street?

Chester drawers...a chest of drawers to store clothing.  When pigs fly...probably not going to happen.

He's a few fries short of a happy meal.

I been busier than a one armed paper hanger!...that's pretty busy.

Nervous as a cat in a room full of rockin' chairs...pretty darned nervous and soon to be schizophrenic.

He's sharp as a bowling ball...not the brightest bulb in the chandelier...her elevator don't go to the top floor...

Not the sharpest pencil on the desk...not runnin' on all four cylinders...few sandwiches short of a picnic!...

Dumb as a fence post!...the lights are on but no body's home...Em are all six one way and half dozen thother.

City Titties...you know those bumps they use to keep you from trying to change lanes?

I had better sign off before this gets to be dead as a doornail...flat, boring dead.

                                    So, I'm gonna make like a baby and head out!...finish my post.

 

and Proud of it!

Debra now I know you are having an uneventful weekend. I am fixing to go to bed now (lol). I am not a Texas woman I am a California Woman. I did live in Tyler all of 1968.

I pick up a saying then, "He chunked a rock at me."  You do want to get out of the way when this happens.

Love the above! Thanks for a good laugh!

A fabulous trainer has a ton of phrases... let's see:

"mookie-pookie and mutter-putter"

... and something about a cat spraying are all I remember right now.

(yes, I'm referring to Rick Barnes)

I'll take some notes next time I see him!

Emily, What do you suppose the mookie-pookie means? I do remember the one about the cat but not exactly how it went! I'm glad it made you laugh! Deb :-)

LOL! I like this one better than the points gig. I have heard, there is room for rent in her head, their elevator doesn't go all the way to the top, here's a quarter, call someone who cares( that is so old, from way back when there were phone booths-they actually started out being ten cents) I am sure I will pay more attention to those comments now:) Brian Buffini (from his Mother)  look at your friends to know who you are, and when his brothers went upstairs when they were younger and living in Ireland, if you are going up the stairs-make it worth your trip. Another words, carry towels or clean laundry upstairs. Thanks again for the smiles!

It's a Good Life!

I loved this post- I went to answer your question on my blog and started reading your blogs.

I am in California. Raised by Texas parents. My mom from Conroe and dad from Palmer. One near Houston and the other near Dallas. I'll bet you knew anyway. I loved the words and the fun. Your post is one I think I want to keep somewhere. I think my success in real estate is partly because I am a Texas accent girl. Its "thick as thieves" not a perfect fit but it's thick. It somehow blends with sincerity. People know they are standing inside the presence of several things with me. The Truth and the golden rule. Thats just a plain fact. I loved your CEO blog I admire your feeling of parenting over your word. I did a blog yesterday on the number one word of 2007 "W007" and my favorite word of 2007 from my life is "Familyish" I didn't make it up a clients child did and I gave her the credit.

I make up words too. I think its a southern thing. I didn't have the good sense to collect them all and keep them in a place...like a journal. Maybe I will now.

Posted by Lynne Pope Execs Group.com almost 11 years ago
Hi Lynne, Thank you so much for the sincere comments! I am pleasured by your enjoyment! I happen to like what you said too! I could see the sincerity of the truth and the golden rule in you too. I am going to read your WOO7 blog when I finish here. I hope we can get to know more about each other! Conroe is right down the road from here. Do you ever go back? What's it like in sunny California? Sunny? We will visit again soon. Deb

Hey Deb, I just thought of one my father-in-law used all the time (he was East Texas boy from Shelby County - Timpson to be exact). His favorite was "Finer than a frog hair, split four ways!" That meant it was a pretty good deal!

Glad to see ya back.

Posted by Elaine A. Cook, Bellingham Real Estate (Connect Realty.com) over 10 years ago

Elaine, I know what you mean about Texas being a different country! I have lived & worked here for over 30 years. My husband too is PRUE EAST TEXAS,  Most of these sayings he thinks his family "coined"! HOWEVER, I only have to take him to my "home" and visit with my relatives and he sees that Texas and MISSISSIPPI have a LOT in common. The one he probably never heard, however, until he married me was, "Butter my butt and call me a biskit!"

Oh yea, I almost forgot until I just heard my husband describe someone he works with, "He's about 2 fries short a Happy Meal!"

Ya'll have a really great day!

 

Posted by Kathy Fisher, Realtor Wise County Texas (Parker Properties) over 10 years ago

Hey Edward, that's a good one isn't it? Shame it really applies sometimes! LOL

Hi Paul, a bag full of hammers would be crazy! I hadn't heard that one before. Thanks!

Posted by Kathy Fisher, Realtor Wise County Texas (Parker Properties) over 10 years ago

I heard this once..

 "that's a come & see here."      That's what my 7th grade football coach yelled at me for kicking the ball towards teacher parking lot during football practice. A "come & see here" meant I had the small pleasure of getting "swats" (sp) A paddle that was painted in school colors, custom made with holes to allow free movement, excellent hand eye coordination thereby maximizing complete stinging. Damn those used to hurt.

Posted by Greg Nino, Houston, Texas (RE/MAX Compass, formerly RE/MAX WHP) over 10 years ago

Greg, I've heard that one before since we have been here in North Texas. In Mississippi we use to call that type of action & consequences, a "COME TO JESUS MEETING" OR "Going to get your heart right".

This is SO MUCH fun reading all of these. THANKS DEB for the post!!

Posted by Kathy Fisher, Realtor Wise County Texas (Parker Properties) over 10 years ago

Being a native TEXAN:-) I still say:  Bigger 'n Dallas (HUGE) and "The Higher the hair the closer to God" - which really is just referring to tall haired women in Texas.  Why is TX the only state that has that?
Posted by Ed Vogt, Grandville, MI Midwest Properties (Midwest Properties of Michigan) over 10 years ago
Gosh Ed, I think everyone had that from coast to coast. We're just the "everything's bigger in Texas" state. Maybe all the short women were trying to look taller?? I'm tall. So, no matter.

Actually I read your post and enjoye it. I live in AZ, but I was born in Arkansas. I remember once telling my not-yet-husband to "Just pull the door to." -now in my family that is a perfectly good sentence. It means pull the door till it touches, but not all the way closed.

Aaron, if it made you smile then it worked just the way I wanted it to! Can you think of any others I've missed? I think of others often and then forget to write them down!

Hi Jennifer, I would love for you to share some of your California slang! Make me laugh!

OMG Leslie, I know what that means! I spent my first few years in Indiana so I'm well versed in my mid-western slang too. I remember drinking "pop" and calling the girls..you guys. Does this make me multi-talented? I like to think so.

James Jeter that's pretty darned fine! We could shave the legs and then eat them!

Cheryl, I'm so sorry I don't get to wittness you using that! I lost my cheese a long time ago.
