Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas MOBoctober
return of the loonleader

thursday october 21st
my room

1:00 p.m.

Looking out of my bedroom window, counting my unblessings. Raining. A lot. It's like living fully dressed in a pond.

And I am the prisoner of whatsit.

I have to stay in my room pretending to have tummy lurgy so that Dad will not know I am an ostracized leper banned from Stalag 14 (i.e., suspended from school). I'm not alone in my room, though, because my cat, Angus, is also under house arrest for his love romps with Naomi the Burmese sex kitten.

2:00 p.m.

They'll be doing P.E. now.

I never thought the day would come when I would long to hear Miss Stamp (Sports Oberführer and part-time lesbian) say, "Right, girls, into your P.E. knickers!"

But it has.

3:30 p.m.

All the ace gang will be thinking about the walk home from school. Applying a touch of lippy. A hint of nail polish. Maybe even mascara because it is R.E. and Miss Wilson can't even control her tragic seventies hairdo let alone a class. Rosie said she was going to test Miss Wilson's sanity by giving herself a face mask in class and seeing if Miss Wilson had a nervy spaz.

Jas will be practicing her pouting in case she bumps into Tom.

3:50 p.m.

How come Jas got off with cloakroom duty and I got banned? I am a whatsit . . . a scapethingy.

4:10 p.m.

Robbie the Sex God (MY NEW BOYFRIEND!!! Yesss and three times yesss!!!!!) will be going home now. Walking along in a Sex Goddy sort of way. A walking snogging machine.

4:30p.m.

Mutti came in. "Right, you can start making your startling recovery now, Georgia."

Oh cheers. Thanks a lot. Good night.

Just because Elvis Attwood, school caretaker from the Planet of the Loons, tripped over his own wheelbarrow (when I told him Jas was on fire), I am banned from school.

Mutti rambled on, although she makes very little sense since Vati got home. "It's your own fault. You antagonize him and now you are paying the price."

Yeah, yeah, rave on.

4:45 p.m.

Phoned Jas.

"Jas."

"Oh hi, Gee."

"Why didn't you phone me?"

"You're phoning me. I would have got the engaged tone."

"Jas, please don't annoy me. I've only been speaking to you for two seconds."

"I'm not annoying you."

"Wrong."

"Well, I've only said about two words to you."

"That's enough."

Silence.

"Jas."

Silence.

"Jas, what are you doing?"

"I'm not annoying you."

She drives me to the brink of madnosity. Still, I really needed to speak to her so I went on, "It's really crap at home. I almost wish I hadn't been banned from school. How was Stalag fourteen? Any goss?"

"No, just the usual. Nauseating P. Green smashed a chair to smithereens and back."

"Really?! Was she fighting with it?"

"No, she was sitting on it having her lunch. It was the jumbo-sized Mars bar that did it. Everyone was killing themselves laughing. The Bummer Twins started singing 'Who ate all the pies' to her, but Slim, our beloved headmistress, heard them and gave us a lecture about mocking the unfortunate."

"Were her chins going all jelloid?"

"Yeah. In fact, it was Chin City."

"Fantastic. Are you all missing me? Did anyone talk about me or anything?"

"No, not really."

Charming. Jas has a lot of good qualities though, qualities you need in a bestest pal. Qualities like, for instance, going out with the brother of a Sex God. I said, "Has Hunky, I mean, Tom, mentioned anything that Robbie has said about me?"

"Erm . . . let me think."

Then there was this slurp-slurp noise.

She was making slurping noises.

"Jas, what are you eating?"

"I'm sucking my pen top so I can think better."

Sacré bloody bleu, I have got le idiot for a pal. Forty-nine centuries of pen sucking later she said, "No, he hasn't said anything."

7:00 p.m.

Why hasn't Robbie mentioned me? Hasn't he got snogging withdrawal?

8:00 p.m.

I can hear Vati singing "If I Ruled the World." Good Lord. I have only just recovered from a very bad bout of pretend lurgy. He has no consideration for others.

8:05 p.m.

The worsterosity of it is that the Loonleader (my vati) has returned from Kiwi-a-gogo land and I thought he would be there for ages. But sadly life was against me and he has returned. Not content with that, he has insisted we all go to Och Aye land to "bond" on a family holiday.

However . . . nananana and who-gives-two-short-flying-pigs'-botties? Because I live in Love Heaven.

Lalalalalalala.

I am the girlfriend of a Sex God!!

8:15 p.m.

The Sex God said I should phone him when I get back from Scotland. But there is a fly in his ointment . . . I am not going to Scotland!!! My plan is this, everyone else goes to Scotland and . . . I don't! Simple enough, I think, for anyone to understand.

operation explain-brilliant-not-going-to-scotland plan to mutti and vati

8:30 p.m.

The olds were slumped in front of the tv canoodling and drinking wine. They are so childish. I had to leave the room in the end because Dad did this really disgusting thing. They were laughing and grappling about on the sofa and they did number five on the snogging scale (open-mouth kissing). Honestly. I mean it. There might even have been a suggestion of six (tongues). Erlack a pongoes!!!! Libby was there as well. Laughing along. It can't be healthy for a toddler to be exposed to porn.

You won't believe what you are reading! It ll happens fast and it is great for reading. Just not in public. At some parts you can't go on further reading because you are still stuck on what just happened.

The Georgia Nicolson Series by Louise Rennison is one of my favorite series of all time. The first book in the series is called Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging, this book will keep you laughing at every turn. The first time I remember reading on the back ¿Do not read in public, you will laugh out loud¿ or something like that, yet I still read it in school, and ended up making a fool of myself.

The third book in the Georgia Nicolson series was much, much better than the second. I quite enjoyed reading about Georgia growing up, her struggling to come to terms with her changing body and, of course, boys. Unlike the second book, this one was much funnier. I plan to read at least some of the rest of the series at a future date.

This book is about a girl named Georgia who has an obsession with boys. She yet still called her friends Lezis. Georgia didn't get why they got mad at her a lot. During this book she is dating a boy who is as she calls him later on, perverted. Georgia says that her boyfriend had a big mouth so she broke up with him. She saw him later walking with his new girlfriend who was short. She is British so it's different than other books you read. I liked this book because it really made me laugh. The author had some British words in the story so she added a dictionary in the back to tell you what it means. the author used great wording. I don't agree with a lot of things that Georgia would do but it's just a story line. I really enjoyed reading e entire series. I was upset when I found out there was only 8 books to it. They have made a movie on the Georgia Nicolson books. I think she should make more books with another movie. I recommend this series of books. It will make you laugh really hard, it is that funny!

Knocked out by my nunga nungas by Louise RennisonReviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews.Georgia Nicolson is now the girlfriend of the Sex God (aka Robbie), and things are wonderful. Except her loony parents are dragging her off to Och Aye land (aka Scotland), and the Sex God's band's chance at a record contract has left her something of a "pop widow."Then up rears temptation in the form of old flame Dave the Laugh. Is Georgia about to become a shameless vixen? (Synopsis provided by goodreads)In the third installment of the Georgia Nicholson series, we meet up with Georgia once again who is still dating the "sex god."Even in my mid-twenties, this series is still hilarious! Granted, it's not as funny as it was when I was 14. I enjoy reading about Georgia's crazy antics with Jas, SG and Angus. This book is a quick read, an hour or so in an afternoon is all it takes to read it.If you are looking for a book that is just a fun goofy read, give this a try and try all 10 of the Georgia books.# Reading level: Ages 13 and up# Paperback: 183 pages# Publisher: HarperTeen (March 4, 2003)# ISBN-10: 0064473627# Author: Louise Rennison# Cover art: I like the new art better.# Overall rating:**** out of 5 stars# Obtained: My local library

I don't even know how to start this review as I'm so flustered. I liked the first book in the series just fine and the second one was just okay. However, this book left me cold and, to be honest, quite angry. I see there was "controversy" over the phrase "nunga-nungas", but that seems like a trivial complaint compared to some of the other things in this book. I was extremely saddened to see Georgia continue to call her friends "lezzies" as a derogatory term when she was annoyed with them or wanting to bother them. I was also bothered to see Georgia revel in having Jas be her "slavey girl" (though, really, Georgia was the one in the wrong and Jas was just trying to be nice so they could be friends again), and then have the gall to call her "uppity" when she started to fight back. Now, I understand that this is a British series, so perhaps that is why it is no big thing, but in America calling a "slave" "uppity", even in a joking sense, is extremely loaded. It's one of those things you just don't say if you have any good sense. Outside of that, Georgia is absolutely HORRIBLE to her friends. I mean, I still have no idea why her friends want anything to do with her as she is bossy, self-centered, mean-spirited, spiteful, and just generally horrendous. She was bratty, but not nearly this insufferable in the first two books. It almost felt like she was a different person! (And judging by the reviews on Amazon for this entry in the series, this was a common complaint.)I haven't read the latter books, so I have no idea if all of this bad behavior is just a way for Rennison to show how crappy Georgia is and it's a set up to move her past that in future books. I would surely hope so as I'd be appalled if all of Georgia's bad behavior was just laughed off. I mean, we're supposed to be sympathetic to Georgia since she is the main character, and it seems that most people are sympathetic to her. However, if my daughter ever were to talk or act like that, it wouldn't be tolerated. So, again, I truly hope it is a way for Rennison to set up Georgia growing up and getting over herself.Outside of that, the characters and the story have fallen incredibly flat. There is no growth or forward movement to the story and that doesn't compel me to keep on reading the series. I was so tired of reading -osity at the end of every other word. It started to feel too gimmicky and not realistic. I give this book two stars out of five. Obviously, I'm in my twenties, so out of the age group to really enjoy this series (though I did enjoy it when I was a teenager), but I didn't want to give it one star out of sheer optimism that this is just setting up something else. Unless you are a total completionist, if you like this series I'd suggest skipping this one and reading a summary to stay up to date before going on to the next one.

This book was about a girl whose little brother bothers her. She always tells him to leave her alone. Her brother never listens to her and just ignores her all the time. He one day told her the sound of the things on a girls chest makes. He said they make a nunga-nunga sound. She could not believe he said that. She told her boyfriend and he laughed. At the end all of her friends and family could not believe he said that and they know call them that.I liked this book very much. This book made me laugh a lot. The author put a lot of detail in this book. I gave this book a rating of four. I gave it a four because it made me laugh and it had a lot of expression. I felt like I was in the book my self. Also because the author used very good word choice. I really recommend this book to middle school kids.

These books continue to crack me up. Love them! I wish their titles were a little less embarrassing - but whatever - they are good enough for me to suck it up and buy them anyway. I found myself wondering during this lastest installment how it will be adapted for the screen - I can't imagine that someone won't try. I just can't see how it can be done unless they opt for animation. Anyway - I digress - Georgia Nicholson continues to be one of the most entertaining quick reads out there.

Lots of controversy when this came out over "nunga-nungas" (gasp!). Georgia really is a pretty normal, even tame 14 year old.
debnance on LibraryThing 3 days ago
Honestly, I could not have read this book without the useful glossary in the back. Here are a few sample lines sans interpretation: "I am supposed to be thinking about makeup and my nunga-nungas.... And egg babies....I only just snogged someone a few months ago and now I'm practically married and have an egg child. Jas hasn't got red-bottomosity, so it's all very well for her to be boring. But my bottom demands to be heard." Yes. Of course. Sometimes I didn't have the slightest clue what Georgia was blathering about, but she was nevertheless terribly fun and clever. Always stays just inside the approved-for-preteens boundary.
daisygurl536 on LibraryThing 3 months ago
I really didn't like this book. At this point in my life I had enough problems of my own, so reading about someone elses didn't help much. I don't like jounal entry style books anyway because I feel that it is always the same format and it is a casual, easy way to avoid the challenging task of writing a book. Lets just say I stopped reading the series.

Georgia is back in volume 3 of her diaries, begun in Angus Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging. She's still in love with Robbie, but he's never around, and she finds herself strangely attracted to Dave "the laugh". Not only that, but her school has a new student teacher from France, and he's quite dreamy too. The plans for her family to move to New Zealand have fallen through, so Georgia is able to devote her full attention to the problems in her love life, with only minor distractions provided by her school work.. As in the previous novels, Georgia is silly and self-centered, but good hearted and basically decent. Reading her diary is like having a visit with your funniest best friend.The British slang is very funny to read, and a most helpful glossary is provided in this volume, as in the previous ones. The differences between Georgia's language and that of an American girl only highlight the universality of her concerns. Thank you to the publisher for providing a glossary, and not just a translation!

What can I say? Let another hilarious and wonderful Georgia Nickleson book. Cant get enough. Oh, and can I just say: What do you think of this series' covers? Adorable, thats what I think.
Jenson_AKA_DL on LibraryThing 3 months ago
I am really enjoying the confessions of Georgia Nicolson. There are always parts that make me laugh outloud. In this (the third) book the part which made me laugh the most was Angus' continued courtship of Naomi the sex kitten. Absolutely Hysterical.
