louche - "Of questionable taste or morality." | "The term seems to have been a New York creation of the louche and criminal worlds linked to Broadway in Prohibition days. Sugar was a long-established slang term for money and heavy sugar was a lot of it. Sugar was also an endearment, which originated around this time in African-American slang and which reached a wider white audience via blues lyrics. Daddy was an obvious reference to an older man, but it may similarly have had a link to African-American slang of the time, in which a daddy was a lover with no implications of age. Heavy sugar daddy was literally an older man with lots of cash but in the theatrical world it specifically meant a rich man who pursued actresses for immoral purposes."

e.g., As far as I know, all of Chris's "girlfriends" are louche. Why else would they be attracted to him?

louchebag - In liquor circles. 1. A person who sees herself as an absinthe enthusiast or absintheur but is in reality an absinthe elitist who instead of trying to further public knowledge of the history of and dispelling the many myths about the drink looks down her nose and degrades those who are new to the world of absinthe and to the liquor itself. 2. A pseudointellectual on the subject of absinthe. A member of the absinthe bourgeois who mistakenly believes herself to be part of an elite absinthe-related organization, circle, or social clique. Combining two terms: 1. "Louche" and 2. "douchebag." 1a. From French "louche": "shady, suspicious," from Old French losche, "squint-eyed," from Latin luscus, "one-eyed." 1b. The visible chemical reaction that occurs when water is added to absinthe and mixes into shadowy opaline mixture. 2a. A device used for storing cleaning liquids used in vaginal hygiene. 2b.

We should all vote for who[m]ever we want to -- and make sure we don't let politics get in the way of friendships.

love bombing - Basically, "love bombing" is a recruiting term, which means surounding a potential new member of a group with members who will show unconditional "love and support" in hopes that the new member will join the group. Similar to the old fraternity practice of "hot boxing" a potential pledge into joining a fraternity. Term originated during the "Human Potential Movement" of the 1970s which carried over into the 1980s (Werner Erhard's EST programs in the 70s, and educator John Handley's Lifespring Training of the 80s).

e.g., 1. Peter over there looks like he's ready to join. Let's get some members to love bomb him real good, and maybe we can get a deposit out of him tonight. 2. We need to go over and love bomb the Historical Preservation Society, so that we can get a variance for the stip club. If HPS members speak up for us at the Board of Adjustment meeting, we're in. 3.

love of my life - Not because of anything I've come up with, which is rarely a reason for anything I write being of more than ephemeral interest. Instead, for another of Marty's emeals -- and his praise for Melba. A few days ago, I ran across yet another someone saying, "She's the love of my life." Decided to use Google books Ngram viewer to see how often the words are used now compared to how much they've been used in the past. I hope the graphic will display correctly here, but I'll be sure to link to the viewer itself in case it doesn't. Between 1990 and 2005, use of the words in the corpus I use increased more than seven-fold. Am I supposed to think that romantic love changed so dramatically in a mere fifteen years -- or should I think something happened in popular culture that accounted for the change -- say, a Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan rom-com? Whatever happened, it was surely some "outside force" that accounted for the phenomenon. The tailing off after 2005 suggests that's the case.

e.g., She was the love of my life.

(One mole {the molecular weight in grams} of any substance contains the same number of molecules: Avogadro's number, NA = {6.0221415 ± 0.0000010} × 1023.)    What is another word for lugubrious? Try these: sad, mournful, gloomy, depressing, doleful, melancholic, somber, cheerless, miserable, dismal, and morose for starters.

e.g., From Critic Frank Swietek's review of The Dark Knight Rises at Rotten Tomatoes: "Alternately lugubrious and frantic, crammed with incidental characters, plot threads and expository flashbacks that try to explain a numbingly complicated but ultimately silly story, [it] feels every bit of its 164-minute running-time, and then some." Note Swietek's use of alternately -- which does not have the same meaning as alternatively, although you'll see some writers use them interchangeably, as if they were synonyms. They're not. |   I'm no mood to see a lugubrious movie that's almost three hours long. A lubricious movie would be another thing entirely. |    When I try to decide whether I think a movie is bad or good, one of the questions I ask myself is, "Did it leave me wanting more?" If it did, it's probably a good movie -- in my estimation. If not, it could either be a bad movie or a good movie that I thought was complete in itself. I've seen plenty of movies where I made up my mind before the movie was over -- and walked out. If I had gone to a theater to see the 2000 re-make of The Magnificent Ambersons, it most assuredly would have been one of those I walked out of. I think the re-make had a lugubrious ending, but I didn't hang around to find out.
