Quid Est EEK?

Some people have been asking me what I mean by "EEKy" and "EEKiness" and "EEK."

They derive from something my fiancee said.

We were looking at pictures of girls hugging and holding each other. She said "EEK! EEK! Lesbians!" because she was parodying the idea that when two female characters are close to each other, there must be something (as in a "more-than-friends" something) between them. "EEKy" and "EEKiness" and "EEK" parody the aforementioned idea. "EEKiness" refers to something... anything... that could be construed as lesbianism.

Edit: Nowadays, "EEK" and its various derivatives often are used when discussing about any sort of female-only relationship that others could interpret to have some kind of implicit or explicit sexual or romantic significance. Relevant relationships could be anything from glances between two female people who do not know each other all to hardcore yuri relationships. In any case, it is used jocularly.

LWotP: tribadismus -i m. "lesbianism" (Vocabulum Milleri?).

The way of the EEK

Ever heard of that funny guy called Pratchett? Well, he sort of helped inventing another guy called "The Librarian" (he deserves the capitals as you'll find out when 300lb of ape drops on you), who uses "Eek!" or "Eeek!" in different situations where he doesn't feel at home. Further information:
