Brit' Word of the Day

Today's BWOTD is what I am today:

"I am seriously narked about the crazy wind outside"

'Narked' = annoyed or put out

I especially like this word and use it regularly even now, it's just a cool Brit' word and I get alot of blank looks.

Narked. I like it. I think I'll start using it, but of course it won't be the same without the accent.

I wonder if narked is related to the word snarky. I have a Canadian friend who refers to someone who is acting up as snarky.

Ohhh! I love this idea:)I try my best to speak British English with my sons because that is what they are learning in school. I'm and American living in France. It is really not easy for me though!

I love this. It is sooooo windy here today, I think when my mother arrives I will use this word. I am sure she will look at me blankly, which will be all the funnier. :)

(She is driving home to Ohio from Arizona and stopping here for a night or two.)

Definitely a useful word.

I say "I'm naffed off" a lot too. Courtesy of the great Ronnie Barker who made it up for "Porridge".

I like this word, too. It sounds like what it is.

Girl, this wind has me narked too. Seriously, can't even open the car door in the driveway. It is ridiculous. Doesn't help the sinuses either!
