Technology Idioms - the answers!

the answers to the worksheet on technology inspired idioms from monday 28th january.  enjoy!

mickgreen's insight:
  1. Sorry, we must have got our wires crossed.  I thought you said we’re meeting outside the cinema.
  2. The unexpected local opposition to the planning application has really thrown a spanner in the works.  It might take years to get the council to agree now.
  3. She was enthusiastic at first, but as the weeks have gone on she seems to have run out of steam.
  4. There’s been an accident on the M30, and everything has ground to a halt while they clear the area.
  5. I’m afraid we can’t take on any more work right now.  We’re already (going) at full throttle, and are struggling to keep up with the orders.
  6. OK! Calm down! It was only a suggestion.  There’s no need to blow a fuse. 
  7. Our department hardly runs like a well-oiled machine.  To be honest, it’s chaos most days, and I’m surprised any work gets done at all.
  8. They say that the new computer system will be at the cutting edge, but to be honest, I’ll be happy with anything better than Windows 98. 
  9. With his incredible second novel, Robert Paisley has shown the success of his first book was no flash in the pan.
  10. I think she was out drinking till late last night.  She’s certainly not firing on all cylinders this morning – she’s only managed to take 3 calls.
  11. We work well together.  We have some different ideas, which is positive, but generally speaking we’re on the same wavelength. 
  12. I hardly think we need to design a new programme.  There’s no need to reinvent the wheel.  A simple spreadsheet will suffice.

Food Idioms

Here's the food idioms from last week's game of Call My Bluff!

mickgreen's insight:


1. If you know which side your bread is buttered, you know how to behave so as not to lose any advantage.

2. If something is a piece of cake, it is easy.

3. If you cook something up, you invent a lie, or an excuse.

4. If you butter someone up, you flatter them with compliments, so they accept bad news better.

5. If you are the big cheese, you are the boss



1. If something is the icing on the cake, it is something which makes a good thing even better.

2. If something cuts the mustard, it is successful.

3. If you soup something up, you personalise and improve it.

4. If you have someone for breakfast, you defeat them easily.

5. If you are cheesed off, you are bored, or angry about something.

HOW TO BOND (Guy Browning)

Having problems linking to the original artice, so here it is copied and pasted from The Guardian website.  

Will put link up later...


mickgreen's insight:

Women are very good at bonding. The way they do this is by swapping the innermost secrets of their relationships with their mothers, their partners and their fridge. Women also bond by commenting on each other's clothing and accessories, especially if an item is on display for the first time. Comments have to fall within the "very positive to ecstatic" range. "You've made a bad mistake with those earrings" doesn't aid female bonding, and is a comment best left for men to deliver towards the very end of a relationship.


Advanced female bonding can involve the borrowing of clothing and accessories, but this has to be done with discretion. If your friend is wearing a new top she's very pleased with, she won't want to lend it to you that evening for the party you're both going to. Suggesting it could lead to unbonding.


Male bonding is a very delicate manoeuvre done in a very masculine way. It requires overcoming the instinctive competition between males and replacing it with a state of loving cooperation, without implying that there's any hint of homosexuality between the men involved. Oddly, for some men the quickest way to bond is to fight. This proves that both are strong, masculine figures and allows them to get to grips with each other in a totally heterosexual manner. It's important when fighting not to knock your partner out cold, because this gets the relationship off to a shaky start.


Men mostly bond by doing things that involve standing and looking in the same direction together. That's why watching football and drinking at a bar are two of the favourites. Standing at a bar watching football on TV is the quickest possible way of bonding. Golf is how older men bond by walking in the same direction together. If golf involved one person starting from each end of the course and racing to get round, it wouldn't be nearly as effective.


Sex is a great way of bonding between men and women because it releases a powerful hormone that encourages chocolate purchase. Bonding between men and women without sex is quite tricky unless the woman can stand next to the man and then talk about the intimate details of an affair she's having with a leading footballer.
