Haughty, adj. Proud and disdainful, like a waiter.

HA! I'm here first ... nah nah

Sar said...

3D that was perfect!

But remember Santa knows if you've been haughty or nice.

Minka said...

"He´checking his list, he´s checking it twice..."
haughty: the way Doug speaks about cats :)

Doug said...

Yes, Dddragon, you seem to be first and I notice Madame was otherwise occupied yesterday.

No problem for me, Sar. I wear sneakers.

Pssh. Santa. Garrulous little list-maker. Enterprising, though, in a common sort of way.

AP3 said...

I'm haughty but hice?

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Haughty, adj., Describing one who knows she is pretty near perfect.

Hey, it's easy for you guys to be humble. You're not that great.

karma said...

huh! pedestrians :P

karma said...

you look scary in your new profile pic, Doug

latysxwi: coffee with sex

Doug said...

More than one house AP3?

It's true, TLP, but I think you're up to the task.

I decided this morning that the official definition would be Karma's. Thanks for edifying your inferiors. All praise Karma! I keep hearing this isn't my most flattering picture. Next time I'm not lazy I'll find another. Well done with verifier, your highness. By which I mean Rani, right AP3?

Princess Wild Cow said...

There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
And when she was nice
She was very very nice
And when she was 'aughty she was 'orrible...

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

haughty, adj. My general atttide this time of year.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

I like that picture of the dog.

So, that haughty highness Karma is your favorite? Well! I never! Hrmpf. *goes off in a haughty huff.*

Omnipotent Poobah said...

haughty adj. - See Karl Rove.

Miz BoheMia said...

Haughty- The knowledge that a certain bohemian is better than everyone else, all others are misguided fools, MISGUIDED, I say! Pshaw! Talk to the hand, like omigod! I am off to greener pastures...

Doug said...

Hey, PWC! Poetry, no less. I'm humbled. OK, not really.

Alice, I hadn't noticed. You must be short.

Good riddance, TLP. At least now my coffee's safe.

Poobah, you went an admirable long time without going there. I declare the moritorium ended.

Whatever, MB.

Minka said...

I was just thinking, imagine there is a poor blogger out there who entered this side for the first time today. He´d never come back, thinking that here is the place all nasty people gather to offend each other.

Death rides a high horse.

Miz BoheMia said...

Monika is right. You have made us all living examples of the latest word! Oy vey Doug!

Fred said...

I don't stand a chance when 3D gets here at 4:14 am. It's time for me to get a job where I can be up in the middle of the night to compete with you guys.

Doug said...

Monika, so you pity the blogger who finds this a site for bitter people but not the one who created it for that very purpose?

Nice, Gabriel. Not every writer can combine Revelations and Jane Austen. None should.

Well, Miz Bohemia, G.H. Mead had a theory about that but I suppose not everyone has read it.

Now, Fred, this isn't a competition except for the winners.

"...except in plummet."
Haughtiness cometh before a plummet.

Sar said...

What, no one's going to mention Haughty Couture? I mean really, my shoe was just made for it darlings.

!!!ROTFL!!!!

pia said...

Oh you're all so haughty, and high faluting (sic?)

Was I ever at this site before?

mireille said...

Doug, darling. Don't even THINK about changing the dogpix. It has such ... oh, how does one say it? ... such je ne c'est quoi. As do you, dear boy. xoxo

Doug said...

It does indeed, Jamie Dawn. I should watch myself, huh?

Sar, you mean like breeding flowers?

Yup, Ariel. That TLP! By the way, I was pretty sure you wouldn't manage to be haughty yourself.

Ha, Pia! It may have been another Pia. Sure was a different Doug.

Well, gosh, Mireille. I mean, if it has je ne c'est quoi and all, I'd be a fool to change. Somehow I suspect you'll find a kindness for the next one, too, though.

tlm said...

Famke Janssen is a major haughty.
But Paris Hilton is not.

karma said...

my, my ... the natives are getting restless :))

Minka said...

Doug, when I start to feel sorry for you, they world has become a sorry palce indeed :) I´ll pad you on teh back though!

Doug said...

Excellent diagnosis, TLM. I like the new threads.

Oh, great, Karma. We're getting colonized now?

Thanks. Monika. Backslaps are gratefully accepted.

Jamie Dawn said...

You don't come across as a haughty person.
Did I miss something?

actonbell said...

Never be haughty to the humble; never be humble to the haughty ~Jefferson Davis
I think this is so true! (And I like the dog pic, too--but I repeat myself.)

Doug said...

JD What's it take with you? OK, please remove the brown m&m's from my bowl. And, thanks.

Well, sure Actonbell, good advice in the confederacy, I guess. I sure was hoping you'd try to act haughty today. In fact, I have a bet you can't do it. And WIllie and I thank you.

Belinda said...

He's making a list; Checking it twice; Gonna find out who's haughty or rolls dice....

Sorry. I'm tired. And not terribly bright.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Would I mess with your coffee? As if!
I drink only the finest, fairly-traded coffees. And besides that, I'm a Unitarian! We know coffee! Your coffee is safe all right. Note to self: never hobnob with the little people.

You'll miss me.

Doug said...

Hey, Belinda, not bad for off-the-cuff. It was, right?

TLP, serves you right for slumming. Those Unitarians.

weirsdo said...

Attitude in which one looks down one's nose while keeping it up in the air.

Indeterminacy said...

Haughty is something you might become if everyone starts telling you you're a hotty guy or gal.
