Bloggerhoea

P1090521I’m sorry I don’t have a source for this word but I define Bloggerhoea  a compulsive outpouring of stories via blogs. I suspect the term was a play on another word that describes an outpouring.

I know that I heard a genimate use Bloggerhoea several years ago but I did not make a note of who that was. The first mention of the term I could find was from a blogger in 2008 who said “i think i’m suffering from bloggerhoea. lock me in a room with internet connection + com with all my med notes and tell me that i only can get out if i memorize all of my notes you’ll find me blogging 99% of the time.”

 

Kick the Bucket

Quite a while ago my genimate Carmel Galvin reminded of a phrase my Dad used quite regularly. Most Australians would know that Kick the Bucket is a euphemism for dying  and I know it is used by our English cousins. Is it a term commonly used in other parts of the English speaking world?

An  article in Wikipedia examines theories behind the origin of the phrase.
