 I’m kind of in a happy, bubbly place lately thanks to, well, loving life and everything and everyone around me (and well, the fact that many of my friends have awesome happy, bubbly things going on for them) so I’m sharing some of my favorite quotes and sayings I’ve stumbled across lately….



What’s inspiring you lately?

My generation is all about the social networking… I’m on Myspace.com, Facebook.com, Linkedin.com, recently joined Twenty Something Bloggers.com, so there’s a fair amount of surveys that float around, and yesterday a new one caught my eye: Urbandictionary.com Definitions. You type in your response to the questions on urbandictionary.com and post the results. Good for a laugh, if nothing else.

I typed in my name (my full one came up with a really dirty definition which I’d rather not post involving male anatomy and illegal drugs) so I started in with my nicknames. Here are the definitions:

The exact Origins of this name is unclear, some say its a derivative of the word honor, or Honora. But the popular beleif is that it comes from the Hebraic/Arabic word Noour or “Light”, correctly tranlated in means Bright Light.  Also used to describe women of great Beauty, beautiful babies are often named nora as they beleived that the name would give the baby good luck.  Some Scholars say that Nora also means “the enlightned one”, “the Beautiful one” and also “the wise one”.
in high society most women are named Nora, because the name entitles Nobility, Beauty, Light, Grace and Wit.  What a gift it is to be named under such a glorious name.

(Nora note: someone must have had a bad experience with a Nora as the second definition was this: A shy and unlovable girl who worships darkness and cats. I think I like the first one better).

My other nickname, which I won’t reveal (or else you’d have my real name, kind of): To describe something of such superb standards it almost cannot be described by any word or sentence or onomatopoeia in the English language. (Well, isn’t that nice.)

(Nora note: other definitions for my name included “tits that go east and west,” and “someone who did poorly with their due diligence.)

Your turn! Type in your name, nickname or we’ll say favorite food and let us know what it says… urbandictionary.com.
