Gutted

April 29, 2010

Sorry Martin but the use of the word gutted is weird. I thought it was used to described a destroyed building but it can also be used to suggest extreme disappointment. When/if England gets knocked out of the World Cup in June, most English people will be ‘gutted’. If you just miss the train to work and miss morning tea you are ‘gutted’. If you miss out on the dream job or the last Scotch Egg you are ‘gutted’. When the volcano erupts and you miss your flight home or realise that Ant and Deck will probably be on TV forever, you are ‘gutted’.

    Sorry Pete, but gutted is nothing to do with buildings, although, they, like lots of other things,and the rest of us, can be gutted. It’s to do with fish. When you catch one you gut it as well as scale it. So when you are gutted, well, you are gutted. It’s one step up from hung, drawn and quartered.

      Awesome app. I love it. The one feature you should definitely add is an option to turn off the sense-like zoom out to all screens. I only need 3 screens with this and with quickdesk there is some quotniesable behavior with the launcher sometimes just returning to the home screen and sometimes zooming out to view all screens. Also, what settings did you use to make your icons? I’d like to make my own but i want them to fit in perfectly.

      nung kabataan ko we used to extract the juice from it and use it for pretend play – cooking oil (for luto-lutoan), lotion, shampoo and of course ang walang kamatayan nga na bubble making!
