Brilliantly British Friday Five

In the spirit of My Word! and Says You!, Songbird and Kathryn offer up a Brilliantly British Friday Five.

Below you will find five phrases seen or heard by Songbird on her British holiday. Use your imagination to define them. Points will be granted for humor. If you are one of our British RevGals, don't play, but please e-mail either Songbird or Kathryn to let us know of any definitions you find particularly amusing or inventive. There will be lovely prizes provided by Kathryn (Diocesan magazine, St. M's notelets, history of St. M's, parish magazine--come on Barbara Pym fans, I know you want that last one!!!), so do your best!

Adverse Camber

Butts Wynd

Plague Church

Free House

Mind the Gap

As always, please let us know in the comments if you play. A direct link to your blog will no doubt attract more visitors! Once again, the code is:

  1. What a cute idea! I am a little to washed out right now to be creative, but I wanted to let you know my delay in doing the Friday Five was in no way a reflection of what a great five I think it is.

  2. laughing - England is FULL of funny expressions and place names. As per the rules I won't play :( but Butt Wynd is definitely the funniest.

    ENJOY

  3. What a great idea... another Brit not playing but I look forward to the definitions - especially Free House and Mind the Gap as they are most familiar to me!
    Songbird and/or Kathryn, where do we find your e-mail addresses - are they on your blogs?

  8. My great-grandparents are probably looking down from heaven, sadly shaking their heads, while Grandma is rolling her eyes. And I'll have to run away from my Aunt Nan because her Cockney temper will get the best of her and she will beat me with a broom!

    I guessed - wildly.

  10. I played and I want to win A prize. A little bathroom humor, what can I say.

    You can read about it here.

  11. OH yes, tomorrow's trivia challenge will center around something British to continue on with the British theme! Perhaps one of these expressions will show up in the quiz!

  13. Carmen of God & Culture tagged me, and I did my best to up the humor factor here: Mirathon

    Thanks for the idea. 'Twas fun. I took my inspiration from the Great Plague and the movie Restoration. :)

  14. Where is everyone??? No preaching this weekend - or at least no party ... did the rapture happen and I've been left behind. Yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  15. No, no. The rapture is post-trib. You're safe. ; )
