    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=chuffed

    you mean that or something else?

    It's from the Middle English word chuffe:i.e. pleasure or displeasure.

    "Heebie-jeebie" seemed a little vague...

    I mean the old Middle English definition, apparently.

    Funny thing is, the word just came to me. That's just how I feel, I didn't realise that it described my feelings in any legitimate way. Now I feel even more wierd.

    Soon the Avengers DVD will be on, and the first of many coping mechanisms will be activated. We'll see.

    there were hilarious posters in the london tube of two marathon runners:

    "i'm feeling really chuffed to be doing this"
    "I'm feeling really chafed."

    Aha! My 9 months in England have actually taught me something. It's definitely more of a proud or pleased feeling. I'm yet to hear it as annoyed. So I guess when I'm chuffed I just b*tch-slap salmonchild and do a little jig.

    Yeah, I was definitely referencing the Olde Engish in me poll.

    Wierd. I must of had a flash back to a past life as a punter in 1706.

    Funny how words change meaning over time.

    Oh, and thanks all -no longer chuffed or churled. Feelin' pretty chuffed about the whole night after all.
