I don't think this could mean anything else than the butt of an eel. A thin, moist, and possibly shocking, end to a very good eel.
And absolutely irrelevant to the blog post I found it on, this utterly gorgeous wedding in Amsterdam.

It's only humanell to want to try and keep our lives ordered and controlled.
Sometimes we get so obsessed with keeping our weight against the door, keeping the external forces of life at bay, that we don't hear the good times a-knocking.
Shift your weight, open the door a crack, see what's out there.
Try and be less humanell.
Thanks dbs.

perackwa - what you'd like to do to a child who publicly tells a different story than the one you've told.

usage...say, for the sake of the story that you spilled a very small amount of water into your precious macbook pro, then you find it won't start, so you take it in for repairs (neglecting to mention said spill - because no one asked).  then the child happens to be with you when you go to pick up the other computer, which was also in for repairs (and did not have anything spilled on it) only to have her tell the guy behind the counter, "but you spilled water on it, mom," when he asks what was wrong with it.  making you wish you could perackwa her into the middle of next week. but instead, you bite your tongue and talk to her about how neglecting to mention everything isn't really lying.

When George then screamed "pardo," Agnes was truly horrified.
