We do have our own nicknames.
Once Upon A Christmas
#in general in italian the male genitalia tends to mean a lot of different negative things #while the female genitalia is a gender neutral synonym of ‘beautiful and hot’ #pretty much the opposite of the english language #I’m ok with this
#also I’m laughing because I’m re-reading the list I’ve just wrote and if you’re italian you can pinpoint EXACTLY where I’m from just from #those words #anyway ‘cazzeggiare’ is my favorite term I think #like ‘sto cazzeggiando su tumblr’ #yeah
I’m giggling by myself bc it’s all very true and very beautiful~
All of the above! I had only room for a few examples in the picture but all of the above-mentioned ones are awesome. And there are so many more uses, you could spend the day listing them and not be done. You can even invent your own!
(also since people are going wtf about the printer: we were thinking of something you yell at, Denise said printers and yeah, we can all agree that printers came from the darkest depths of hell)
"MO SO’ CAZZI" - shit just got serious (I don’t know if this one is used outside of Rome, though)
Great Rides For Young
Awesome Water Shows
Amazing Fireworks and Light Displays
And Of Course The Man Who Created Everything
WHEN YOU WITHDRAW AND COVER YOURSELF UP LIKE THAT, YOU'RE ACTUALLY JUST PREVENTING PEOPLE FROM SEEING SOMEONE WHO'S ALREADY BEAUTIFUL.
In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.
I. A fan placed near the heart.
"You have won my love."
II. A closed fan touching the right eye.
"When may I be allowed to see you?"
III. A closed fan moved threateningly.
"Do not act so impudently!"
IV. A half-opened fan pressed to the lips.
"You may kiss me."
V. Covering the left ear with an open fan.
"Do not betray my secret."
VI. Hiding the eyes behind an open fan.
"I love you."
VII. Shutting a fully open fan slowly.
"I promise to marry you."
VIII. Fanning oneself slowly.
"I am married."
IX. Letting one’s fan rest on the right cheek or the left.
"Yes" and "No", interchangeably.
X. Opening and closing the fan several times.
"You are cruel."
XI. Fan in front of the face.
XII. Twirling the fan in the left hand.
"We are being watched."
XIII. Fan held over left ear.
"I wish to be rid of you."
XIV. Carrying an open fan in the left hand.
"Come and talk to me."
XV. Opening a fan wide.
"Wait for me."
XVI. Placing the fan behind the head with finger.
