  1. I’m astonished you didn’t list “hork.”
    some of my faves:

    “Clunk” (the sound of a head hitting wood)

    “Splat” (the sound of the defenistrated)

    “Hup” (the sound of exertion as a Belgian cyclist tops a hill (i am not actually making this up))

    “Nom nom nom” (the sound of cute person eating delicious food)

  2. *HORK*! I overused it two years ago, it has less meaning now. But I totally use NOM NOM NOM a lot. Definitely one of my faves.

  4. Well, I sorta meant that someone (usually a woman who acts *ahem* like a teen) who overidentifies herself with the kawaii ideal, and sees herself and everything she does through a lens of extreme cuteness. The kind of person who uses “OMG” in actual conversation (pronounced “Oh-Em-Gee”), which bloggers sometimes do, but without any sense of irony.
    I can think of some ugly people who eat with a *SPLORK*
    Gross.

  5. Also, you’re cute, don’t get so damned defensive. ^_^

    I’m going to eat now. I’ll make notes of my sounds…

  6. I rather like “miaou” (cat) and “meuh” (cow); but then, I think everything reads more chic in French.

    “Nom nom nom” is for sure one of the best!

    As is, “Beep!” (Especially if you are trying to sound like a robot!)

  7. Griz, only you would own a copy of Finnegan’s Wake. Well, you and me (but I loaned it out years ago, so I’m technically someone who USED to own that shit-crazy fuckerpants book).

  8. Matt, OHEMGEE, you still didn’t tell me what an ugly person sounds like (you are not an ugly person)…

    Maybe something like GNASH GNASH NOM.

  12. Hmmm, interesting way of spelling “meow.”

  13. Hooray for Phantom! (Tollbooth, not Opera–although I liked both) ‘Miao’ is my favorite way to spell ‘miao’. Miao.
