Short, esoteric, and shoddy--neo-Hobbesian, in other words.e(P.S. Sandpaper skirts reduce slippage.)
I like to think of them as "Neato-Craigsian!"True, I think I added five years of wear to the dress. But fortunately you can't really tell that I'm wriggling a bit to speed up the slide.
Well, I like the neato-Craigsian touches, and have placed it among my youtube favorites, along with Harry Nilsson singing "1941" at the BBC and Dusty Springfield singing "I Think It's Going to Rain Today."(And isn't that kind of wriggling called "skootching"?)
The decline of the Skootch!Actually no, this was definitely wriggling (a side-to-side motion). The way I understand the term, "skootching" is a deliberate forward motion. In this case my wriggling was creating (or rather speeding up) an indirect forward motion, aka a "slide."You ever get the feeling Harry Nilsson didn't quite get over his deadbeat dad? Personally I prefer the Davy Jones remake (with Toni Basil!) but Harry just generally kicked butt. He made me briefly want to be an astronaut, until I found out about all that spinning around in gyroscopes.
