It's All about the Clothes

~ all mouth and trousers
blustering and boastful, showing off without
having the qualities to justify it.

~ pull up one's socks
try harder

~ keep one's shirt on
try to stay calm

~ buckle down
to give one's complete attention or effort to do something

~ feather in one`s cap
something to be proud of, an honor

~ talk through one`s hat
to say something without knowing or understanding the facts

Awesome, I didn't know some of them (: I like your blog, it's very diverse and interesting and you seem to know a lot about books, which always a good thing to read (:

Thanks for dropping by. Nah, I wish I had more time to read, but I am too busy these days. I can see you like David Lodge. I love his funny books! The British Museum is falling down is my favorite :)
