I *know* I've heard the word 'blint' somewhere before. Urban Dictionary has two definitions for it, one of which kind of sort of maybe rings the right bell, but still.

Oh, wait, no; Urban Dictionary has inserted an 'l', and really means 'bint', I think.

This is gonna bug me now. Great.

And that one I've never heard of before. But it sounds vaguely faux-Australian, like it stepped out of a Crocodile Dundee movie.

(This isn't a *bad* thing, in my book, but I can't not hear the accent now.)

Month? Sleepy You apparently can't remember what *year* it is. :D

EDIT: Sleepy *Me* apparently can't read post dates. Poke withdrawn. Derp.

(Yay threadnomancy!)
