    We can make an exception for you, Lightwarrior! You are an honorary geezette.

    Pete, welcome to one of the worlds most exclusive of clubs, you are now officially a weggie! I will apologise for the level of humour on this site, it is either a result of our wonderfully exciting disease or it is a side effect of the many facinating drugs we take.

    blessed2bamommy, I am disgusted to see you have raised two yobs! I hope this is a linguistic error on your part, as in Britain a yob is defined as:-

    "a teenage hooligan, vandal or loafer"

    But then again you know your children and you might occassionally think that is true.

    I am sure Isabella you know the old saying "if it looks like a duck, waddles like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck then it is probably a duck". Having said that I, and I am sure the rest of us, will be interested to see what your rheummy says next week, do please keep us updated on your condition.

    I love your new word Al. It is right in keeping with the word "ladette" coined a few years back to describe young females who imitate their male counterparts. The Concise Oxford Dictionary describes it thus:-

    "Young women who behave in a boisterously assertive or crude manner and engage in heavy drinking sessions."

    So if young females can be ladettes why should their more mature sisters not be geezettes? Perhaps yoiu should write to the Oxford Dictionary and make that suggestion?

    Oh that is funny. Sorry yob stands for "year old boy" and yog stands for "year old girl" So I have a 15 year old girl, 13 year old boy, 12 year old gir, 8 year old boy and 5 week old girl.

    What did I say about Weggie humor? And all this from Pete's thread. title. Blame Pete--yeah, that's the ticket.

    Gazelles and Geezettes? Sounds like a Pillows song--Geezette/Gazelle City:

    Come on, sunshine
    Letís be off
    Come on, sunshine
    Iíll walk your home
    Come on sunshine
    Letís be off
    (But Maybe Iím sleeping yet)

    Actually, maybe this makes sense on other levels as well...

    Yes, Jim. Given the right encouragement, women can be as despicably obnoxious as the guys, though one gets the sense that they have to work at it more (for us, it just seems to flow more naturally. For the gazelle, it doesn't really matter whether the lion is a male or a female, except to note that the female is invariably the better hunter. I think, though, that Geezettes do not have to engage in heavy drinking sessions. Geezerhood, whether male or female, is a state of mind--a kind of spry curmudgeonry.
