Nottie’s tin god: TAE Word for the Day


tin god: (noun) (1) A pompous, self-important person. (2) A person who considers himself or herself infallible and tries to dictate standards of behavior or belief.

This term refers to the fact that tin as a base metal compared with other, more precious metals. In other words, petty or of little value. First documented use was before 1880.

Could one describe a certain beady-eyed, treacherous troll as a little tin god? A clue–yes!

Thank heavens we have Guy–who is the pure platinum sex god of Nottingham!!! He’s OUR baddie. πŸ˜‰

Who are some other tin gods you might have noticed in RA’s productions?

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.
