09:03 pm: new swear word
for the attention of all: i have invented a new swear word today. it is CANK. please discuss what it should mean.

apart from my invention of a swear word, it has been a long day. went to opticians for an eye test : they should have some contact lenses for me to try next week. i am rather nervous about this, especially considering how i was when they needed to put eyedrops in my eye to check my eyeball curvature. but we'll see.

after this met up with vjbseven. after a brief shopping expedition, we hung around at my flat, watched stuff on dvds and computer. and i cooked scones! zub (my brother) arrived one or possibly two minutes after 4pm but oh well. the scones were very nice and only one of them came out even slightly mutant. i shall do this for real at some point: thanks to people for beta-testing my baking. i shall try cakes next.

very tired now. tomorrow I am going to manchester for the weekend. maryrcrumpton and folks : if you want to meet up give me a text or something. :) [ do i know anyone else in manchester? ]

Blatant backformation alert!

CANK: (v.; vulg.) 1. To cause pain in the manner of a canker sore (mouth ulcer).
2. To cause necrosis in plants.

Hmm, interesting. I'd forgotten about that spelling of cancer, I must confess, and was thinking of the word as merely one that sounds like it ought to be a swear word. That it happens to be the name of a street in Leicester also caused this. ;)

Bit of cack, bit of wank, with a side order of canker thrown in?

It is not new, I fear. A Crowan warrior in Fools and Heroes had the mighty spell vocals - "By the power of Crowa, make me hard as cank!"

Always sounded to me like earwax that had solidified into tiny chunks of amber...

Maybe Cank was another, really hard, warrior?

Surely it's female ejaculate? ('cunt' + 'wank')
