Slang Fest

Back to Tally’s World, the guide to the Uglies world first mentioned in this post. I’d like your help with this.

So . . . please use this comment thread to list the following:

1) Slang terms you want defined.
2) Cliques you remember from the books.

And (pretty please) try to limit repetition of the same words! (That means you have to read the earlier comments. But you can always use Find on the thread, you know.)

  6. hmm…. i don’t know if it’s illegal to prank. on new years though me and my friends did a really huge prank on the rest of our friends. it was hilarious. see there were like 10 of us in my friends basement and one of my friends (we will call her a) was texting this guy she likes all night instead of hanging out with all of us. and b (girl who threw the party) was not to happy about it. and then c (a’s best friend) was texting a lot too. and so we decided we would *67 the call and pretend we were the guy’s “girl friend” (he didn’t really have one but we convinced a that he did.) that a liked and so she answers the phone and i can’t really say some of the stuff we said cuz i have to admit it was kinda bad. lol. but they had no clue whatsoever and the entire time we were in the same basement together. the prank went on for 3 hours. and then finally we came out and told them that it was us all along. and we were like kinda freaked out because c gets really really upset and emotional really easily and so we were like debating whether we should tell them or not but then they started calling the guy who a likes leaving messages on his phone so we decided we had to. it was pretty hilarious though. and c ended up being fine. she was just shocked. and a couldn’t believe it.

  7. ‘Kay. First off, let me say that yes, my name is l-o-n-g. So call me Annie if you have to.

    Second, how many different meanings for the word “bubbly” are there? I counted AT LEAST 9.

  8. bran-la we don’t have spring break over here.

    we have summer hols (6 and a half weeks long)

    half term (a week long)

    winter hols (two or three weeks)

    half term (a week)

    easter hols(two weeks)

    half term(a week)

    then summer hols again

    i feel like im missing out something…oh well
    night night
    its 11 at night over here…lol

  9. wow. that’s a lot of time off. we get:
    -summer vaca-about 3 months long.
    -fall break(end of quarter 1)-5 days…that’s including the weekend.
    -christmas vaca-2 weeks long
    -spring break(end of quarter 3)-i think 5 days including the weekend.
    -then a few random holidays and teacher workdays inbetween all those.

    you are lucky that you get seperate breaks for half terms(that’s end of quarter right?) and holidays. in the u.s. they combined them. and make them half as long as yours. very. very. not. fair.

  10. ok so me not to happy. i didn’t get a spot i the track meet. i am third runner up, so if something wreid happens to one on the four people who are in it and the 2nd runner up i will be in it but ya. very Unhappy-Making. but ya. me is borededed. but tm i am at the meet untill 9:00 at night, then i have to clan up Shot Out And Discus, so that takes about an hour. so i really hope i don’t have any homework. but 2 test tm. not fun. so ya

  12. hahaha, i got so bored in maths today, so i started writing this really long random paragraph in my book that had every insult mentioned in scott-la’s book. it was SO weird. it was like a truth-slanting, trust-wrecking, random, ugly, slime queen-y waste of gravity fest. so yeah. anyone else do odd things like that?

  13. i want to cry. my freaking effing printer is killing me! i tell it to print this one page and guess what it prints everything BUT that! ugghhhh…… and i’ve wasted like 3 pieces of paper trying to get it to work but still nothing. and i have to get this done so i can do my other homework. i still have 2 assignments to do and its freaking 11:41 at night. i’m gonna die. and if my printer doesn’t start working it’s gonna die too. *imagines self picking up printer and throwing it at the wall, then destroying everything that’s left of it with a hammer*

    i’m not crazy i’m just tired and cranky. πŸ™

  14. Our spring break doesn’t start until next Thursday. We have Friday off. I’m acctually not too stressed at the moment. Which, considering I have a vocab test on Friday, a French test on Friday, a Clara Barton costume thing that I need by Tuesday, two paragraphs for science due Friday, a biopoem about Clara Barton due next Thursday, a flip book about the Civil War due next Thursday, an orchestra concert tomorrow night, the school play Friday and Saturday, riding lesson on Saturday, strike for the play and cast party on Sunday, is very surprising. I just have one question, maybe someone can help me. Okay, so for the play, I need my hair loosely curled, so I’m coming to school with curlers in on Friday. No problem there. But I have another performance on Saturday night, and I need my hair curled then, but I have a riding lesson beforehand, and the curlers won’t fit under my helmet. I’m considering just having my friend come over and use a curling iron right before I have to leave, but I don’t know. Any suggestions?

    Hm. I should go work on my homework. Maybe. I dunno. Eh. Whatever.

  15. I want to know how ( as much as you can describe) they do the whole pretties, specials, and uglies surgeries. I am interested in that, and I would also like to know what inspired you to write the trilogy.

  16. i would like to know more about Zane and David’s past. and what do they actually do to your brain when you turn into a special? more about how all the operations work

    btw your books are on my TOP shelf
    (that’s good :P)

  17. I most likely will use the curling iron, but I have to have my friend bring hers since my is terrible. Darn. Bus is here. Toodles.

  18. i’m re-reading extras, and i came across a clique that i don’t think anyone’s mentioned yet.
    plain janes.
    “the clique for girls who didn’t want to be pretty or exotic, just normal”
    aya mentions them when she runs into the sly girls for the first time.

  19. thats weird kay-wa (school thing)
    i always thought that u got loads of hols
    on this american cartoon i watch the theme tune mentions
    “there’s 104 days of summer vacation”

  20. i am so jealous, americans get 3 months summer hols! i am well jealous. even though we get more half terms they are when it is wet and rainy here. like england is evrry day. we dont even get snow anymore! i would prefer to have more time off when it is hot and warm than when it is rainy and you cant go out so considor yourself lucky americans!

  21. actually, we get about two-three months of summer vacation.
    not five.
    we get off in the begining of june and start back up at the end of august/begining of september.
    aside from that the longest break we have is two weeks for christmas/new years. then spring break, at about a week long.
    then it’s just a few days here and there. teacher inservices, records days, etc.

  22. Us too. Except we get off for summer break in the end of April and start around the middle of August. And last year they decided that American kids weren’t learning as much as they were supposed they added a week or so on. which really isn’t that bad. Because whats the big difference?
    I love Superman/Tom Welling!!!!

  23. Whoot! Play is tonight!! And I have my hair in curlers. o_0′ Ah well. If someone laughs at me I’m just going to be like, Don’t be jealous. Yeah. I’m slightly hyper. ^-^

  24. dude Reagan the end of april all the way to august?! wow. that is a lonnnng time. like an entire month longer than us.

  25. What is a manga-head? and where did all these words come from? I know this is kinda off the subject but will you please write about how David got his scar?

  26. We’re doing A Midsummer Nights Dream by Shakespear, but 80’s style. So, if you’re familiar with the play/movie…..

    Queen Tatiana will be dressed as Madonna. (Sorry if I spell things wrong. We have another performance tonight and my hair is really tight in the curlers.)
    King Oberon- Billy Idol
    Queen’s Fairies- Madonna wannabes
    Puck- Gah! I can’t remember. I always forget!
    Mechanicals- Devo
    Hermia and Helena- FAME girls.

    So, yeah. There are more, but I can’t really remember. All of the crew members are dressed 80’s style too though. They look really good.

  27. that’s cool Emma-la my school just did Fiddler on the Roof. so you had your play last night right? if so how’d it go?

  28. Yeah, Friday night and Saturday night. It went really well. I’m really tired though. I just got back from strike, and we were all crying. It was really sad.

  29. Man I am bored!!!!!!!! I finished my book and have nothing else to read or do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love Superman/Tom Welling!!!!

  30. whats a neo-foodie and how does a mag lev train work? Is Uglies going to be a movie? What are reputation bombers? Who are the people on the reservation in Pretties?

  31. You haave a lot of questions!!!!!!! Yes they are going to make Uglies into a movie, and I have no idea how a mag lev train works. That’s a good question.
    I ove Superman/Tom Welling!!!!

  32. it works off of a pattern of magnets that push it foward. if you go post digging you can probably find the post where Scott-la told us all about them and you can watch the super fawesome video he found. πŸ˜€
