Verb. Being lazy; accomplishing nothing. Wandering aimlessly.
("What're you doing today?" "Oh, just loaferin'.")

-They, law! (Sometimes just "They!")
Expression of surprise, loosely translating to 'holy crap' or 'wow!'
("They, law -- it's snowing!"
"They! Look who's here.")

-Good lord willing an' the creek don't rise.
If all goes well. Unless something prevents it.
("Next summer, I'm getting married -- good lord willing an' the creek don't rise.")

Now you go! Tell me what words, phrases or colloquialisms you love. Doesn't have to be Southern -- in fact, I'd love to hear phrases from other regions and countries. :D

Ugh, I woke up in the middle of a dream where I was supposed to have been taking care of someone's dogs for them, but I realized I had forgotten to go feed/water them for like a WEEK, and I was trying really hard to get to the house where they were kept, but things kept happening that stopped me. And I woke up before I could get to them, and now I'm still feeling all sad/upset/guilty over these IMAGINARY DOGS that I IMAGINED NEGLECTING. I mean, wtf, brain?

Coffee, stat.

Somewhat less distressing (but even more with the wtf) is this video (found by [ profile] mistigris on boingboing):

Office Worker Goes Absolutely Insane - Watch more free videos

So, what do you think: real or fake? Behind the cut: opinions -- I has them. )

Edit: WTH happened to IMDB?

Hey, does anyone here use Blogspot extensively? I have one here, though obviously I haven't used it much so far. I'm toying with the idea of using it as a public, fandom-only blog, but I'm not familiar enough with it to have any clue how to best use it. I mean, without flists, how do people know you have posted? How do they read you? It annoys me when I'm completely clueless. *grumps* I did just realize that Semagic would allow me to cross-post to Blogspot, which would simplify the posting part.

Anyway, I'm not planning to stop posting here (or IJ or JF get the picture) or anything; I'll continue posting most fandom stuff publically and most personal stuff flocked (except when I'm an idiot who FORGETS TO LOCK THE PERSONAL STUFF ARGH.)

Buzzsugar is talking about which British actors have the best American accents. Not surprisingly, Hugh Laurie is at the top of their list, and Anna Friel from Pushing Daisies is #2. There are quite a few other fandom favorites, too, including Jamie Bamber, whose teeny tiny towel American accent impresses me on a weekly basis. There's also Lena Headly from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, who must be good, because I didn't realize she wasn't American, and the late, lamented Jericho's Lennie James.

Who else has a great American accent?

(Please do ignore the fact that I completely missed the "TV" part of the question and posted a comment about Ewan McGregor. *is goober*)

Edit: Updated with the actual link this time *facepalms*
