It's For The Birds !
Businesballs.com is a website that gives origins and meaning of expressions or words that have been used in our everyday speech. There are new phrases that enter the social intercourse as events and famous personalities influence the language. A very old phrase, For the Birds (also strictly for the birds) - means useless, unreliable, unacceptable or trivial. It implies that something is only for weaker, unintelligent or lesser people. Credit for that description is given to Kirkpatrick and Schwarz Dictionary of Idioms.
Decharne's Dictionary of Hipster Slang references the Hank Janson novel, Chicago Chick 1962.
"'It's crazy man,' I told him, ' real crazy. Strictly for the birds.'"
I've been having blogger problems. I know a lot of it is my lack of experience and know how. I'm sure my brain is bigger than an ostrich eye, which is how big an Ostrich brain is said to be.
Right now I just think Blogger is Strictly for the birds. Yes - my feathers are ruffled right now.
On another note, the other day Willowtree mentioned disappearing bloggers. Now I've lost Kailani and The Pink Diary. Just gone. It's an odd feeling - worry and wondering about someone you have never met. I didn't realize how attached we get. If you are out there Kailani..... good bye.... I miss you.
(And one more day down for November and my unofficial particpation in NoBloPoMo. )
