"Spangly"

badgercurlsbadgercurls Posts: 3,077Registered Users
I'm a TA for a college communication course. At the end of each semester, my students have to fill out evaluation forms about my teaching. I just got my evals from last semster back this week, and on one of them, in the box that says, "Overall, how would you rate your instructor?," someone wrote what really, really looks like "spangly." :dontknow: It keeps cracking me up. I have no idea what it means, or if they even really wrote "spangly."

Any guesses as to a) what it might mean or b) what other word could look like "spangly"? If it helps, the rest of the evaluation was positive and it looks like a man's handwriting, though I'm not quite sure.

    Here is the Def. I found for spangle. It sounds like something good. ?

    Spangle
    –noun 1. a small, thin, often circular piece of glittering metal or other material, used esp. for decorating garments.
    2. any small, bright drop, object, spot, or the like.
    –verb (used with object) 3. to decorate with spangles.
    4. to sprinkle or stud with small, bright pieces, objects, spots, etc.
    –verb (used without object) 5. to glitter with or like spangles.

    That's what I thought the definition was... still doesn't quite make sense, does it? ;)

    RDW - Perhaps I should stop wearing dresses like this to class? :laughing2:

    Bwahahaha! It's definitely spangly and it's definitely a compliment - you sparkle, baby.:thumbright: Take it from me, "spangly" is not the silliest response you can get - my roommate once drew a robot on her eval. of her Japanese teacher and wrote "roboto" in Kanji next to it. And FWIW, I immediately thought of a bunch of the people I know, most with a surfer-ish attitude, who would totally rate a teacher "spangly." Teehee. I think I'll do that on one of my next evals.
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    Thanks! Haha! I still don't quite see how I could ummm... sparkle, but I'll take whatever I can get. Hehe.

    The weirdest response I've ever gotten was my first semester of teaching. Someone wrote that I was "Like a snow angel." Ohhh! And the next semester, someone wrote, "Amy puts the T in TA." Which made me laugh a lot, especially since I actually think it meant something other than what it sounded like because I wore an A-cup bra at the time!

    Puh-leeze. I've seen pics of you, and you sparkle in those. I'm sure IRL it's like x100.

    I'm a TA as well for my grad student duties. I got my evaluations from last semester back a few weeks ago, and one of the questions asked them to list my best points. My favorite response: "curly hair."

    Of course, the more I thought about it, the more I became paranoid that they just couldn't think of something positive to say about my teaching qualities and commented on the physical instead. Oh, well.

    "Spangly" just makes me think of the movie Spanglish. When did we get so old?

    Aww, thanks! :love6:

    I love the "curly hair" response, sarahthewarrior! So cute!

    Phoenix, it was just a one word response to the question, "Overall, how would you rate this instructor."

    our good friend urban dictionary tells us:

    spangly
    1. tall, lanky, long, gangly, spindly

    2. Glittery or shiny. Non-glittery things can also be spangly if they are exciting.

    3. Shiny, pretty, cool or nice

    I'm guessing it's not 1, and if you're not glittery, then you are EXCITING!, pretty, cool, or nice. I agree.

    I was thinking of Spanglish too, but the "language," not the movie.

    I think he probably just mean sparkly, like you have a sparkling personality.
