(no subject)

So today is my Monday morning, and I've been trying to post since yesterday morning, but Batman: Arkham City has been distracting! It's not my fault the Joker is causing trouble again, and I need to stop him. :(


More Words With No English Equivalent!

(until some smart-ass tells me otherwise)



Zeg
(Georgian)
“The day after tomorrow.” Seriously, why don’t we have a word for that in English?

Pålegg
(Norwegian)
Anything you might consider putting into a sandwich. A very generic term.

Lagom
(Swedish)
This word is hard to define, but means something like, “Not too much, and not too little, but juuuuust right.”

Tartle
(Scots)
The nearly onomatopoeic word for that panicky hesitation just before you have to introduce someone whose name you can’t quite remember. That's why I like Facebook on my phone - I can totally look them up and see who they are first!
