Vacillation of person with extremely poor grasp of time concepts: it could be now, it could be never - I really have no idea! Such people typically have a clinical aversion to watches.

SHIP SHAPE AND BRISTOL FASHION
"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." - Kafka

Mrs Susan Ledbetter was well known on the Bristol waterfront in the early 19th century as a lady of negotiable affection.  She was a considerable presence, and also a keen follower of the latest styles from Regency London, though she tended to adapt them in ways that did not entirely flatter her physique.  In later years, any large woman dressing to impress was likely to be described as "ship-shaped, and Bristol fashion".

A mature sheep trying to look younger by shearing her coat into a punk style. Mary was not impressed and sent her to the butcher for a really close shave about the neck.

The conundrum presented to the Kardashian Klan which are young and stupid and not all that good looking. They must choose one or the other and come to a consensus. This will hopefully keep them busy and out of what today passes as "news".

Terror of gherkin-phobes - the pickle hidden right in the middle of a sandwich, where you can't see it until it's too late

The nose of an aircraft is where much of the radar capability is located.  This can be obstructed by a build-up of pigeon-shit and other detritus.  Failure to keep one's nose clean can lead to flying into mountains.

This refers to a bunch of preschool children fighting over 52 playing cards leaving them covered in a sticky mess and many with the corners bent or ripped in two. It is unpleasant as only a horde of preschool children fighting over anything can be.

Any grandiose, widely-believed myth.  Others are "Mother knows best" and "It's too cold to snow".
