  1. amongsts
    • 2009 September 20, Caroline Boucher, “Halfway to Hollywood: Diaries 1980-88 by Michael Palin”, Guardian:
      He describes himself as a "neat, anally retentive little list keeper", but actually Michael Palin is a rather good diarist (as long as he amends the "whilsts" and "amongsts" in the next collection) and to my baby-boomer generation, something of a god.

  2. bloodgate
    • 2009 September 20, Dick Francis and Felix Francis, “Dodgier than fiction”, Guardian:
      It's hard to think of any professional sport that has completely clean hands, from Harlequins rugby club's "bloodgate" disgrace to the diving and stamping scandals in Premier League football to the match-fixing whispers that bedevil everything from tennis to snooker.
      add
  3. brassnecked
    • 2009 September 20, John Harris, “Lib Dem conference: Sunday”, Guardian:
      In fairness, they were a little more excited about it than me – but given that that brassnecked shape-shifter David Cameron has taken space in today's Observer to love-bomb Lib Dem voters (on such key issues as civil liberties and the environment, he said, "there's barely a cigarette paper between us"), it seemed a device to good to resist.
      add
  4. cinderella
    • 2009 September 20, John Harris, “Lib Dem conference: Sunday”, Guardian:
      The latter, as far as I could tell, was a heavily veiled reference to the kind of socially regressive experiment ("EasyCouncil ", they call it) currently being tried by the Conservatives in Barnet: top-flight services for those with the funds, and a cinderella service for anyone without them.
      add
  5. conservatoire
    • 2009 September 20, Ed Vulliamy, “The passion that drives the ultra patriot”, Guardian:
      Born in 1953 and raised in North Ossetia, Gergiev went to his adoptive home, Leningrad, to study at the conservatoire in 1972.
      add
  6. crowdsourced
  7. cutesie
    • 2009 September 20, Sam Leith, “Thanks to the web, Kanye West's bizarre stage invasion has become a work of art”, Guardian:
      Older ones include the lolcats (photographs of cats with deliberately misspelled cutesie captions on them); more recent ones include the Downfall pastiches, in which the subtitles of the Hitler film are rewritten to show the Führer raging about Chelsea signings and the difficulties of remortgaging.
      add
  8. duopolistic
    • 2009 September 20, John Harris, “Lib Dem conference: Sunday”, Guardian:
      This lot, as you may have noticed, remain the third party, and the flesh and bones of Cable's ideas are surely less important than the fact that, in tandem with his admirable proposals for reforming the banks, their best bits denote 1) the kind of voice tragically missing from our duopolistic politics, and 2) play some role in undermining the credibility of George Osborne, when he arrives at the treasury and begins the roll-out of plans apparently well under construction, but cynically hidden from view.
      add
  9. grimfest
  10. huggee
    • 2009 September 20, Jon Canter, “The big H is not for me”, Guardian:
      The huggee approaches, you bump chests (or bosoms) and suddenly you can't see them any more.
      add
  11. intimidatory
    • 2009 September 20, Dick Francis and Felix Francis, “Dodgier than fiction”, Guardian:
      While on the field, ball tampering, verbal sledging and intimidatory appealing to umpires deliver to our young people something of a masterclass in bad behaviour.
      add
  12. megabass
    • 2009 September 20, Alexis Petridis, “Richard Hawley: Rock'n'roll troubadour”, Guardian:
      The songs on it are remarkable: sad, serpentine ruminations on cocaine addiction, dawn breaking and trying to be a good husband, decorated with weird instruments such as musical saws and something called the megabass waterphone.
      add
  13. overscored
    • 2009 September 20, Andrew Clements, “Handel Remixed”, Guardian:
      Michael Nyman's characteristic arrangement of Ombra Mai Fù from Xerxes was overscored, and Craig Armstrong's overlong Theme and Variations on a passage from the Water Music just plain boring.
      add
  14. sarees
    • 2009 September 20, Peter Preston, “Gongs and glass ceilings”, Guardian:
      And the overwhelming message of the evening, each year seeming to grow more resounding, is that the room isn't just filled with hundreds of suits and sarees eating samosas.
      add
  15. shopworkers
    • 2009 September 20, David Mitchell, “Heels? Well, I've worn them to work”, Guardian:

      add
  19. uniforn
  20. vaguenesses
  21. waterphone
    • 2009 September 20, Alexis Petridis, “Richard Hawley: Rock'n'roll troubadour”, Guardian:
