Half an application, or, app, that's hidden.

A theatrical costumiers frantic last-minute search for red sequins.  (For a costume which 'will be 'absolutely ruined, totally ghastly, if I can't find any'.)

An arena where you go to see Quins. A comic-con for Quins, so to speak.

Some people mistake this as meaning they are going to see a freak show of many different quintuplet families when actually it's just an event to watch different people named, Quin, or people dressed up as a famous Quin, parade around.

A few hobbyists attend sequins in hopes of finding the Quinn from Jaws because it's rare to find a good Jaws Quinn these days.

A statement you receive when you leave school noting all the exams you've taken in the last eleven, thirteen or fifteen years, depending on whether you have a life you want to be getting on with.  Treasured, and sometimes framed, by parents, though of no possible use to prospective employers.  "Oh yes, nearly passing Latin when you were thirteen will be a great help when the semi-conduit parts company with the flask-distiller on your watch..."

As opposed to Nike's ad slogan of Just Do It, this is the lazy person's mantra. Can't do it. Don't wanna. I'm against doing anything. Where is my video controller? I'm just sitting here, against all things happening.

And in a surge of non events, con-do-it wins!!!!

As evidenced by the abyssal value of Confederate bank-notes after the American Civil War, IOUs issued by losers tend to be less negotiable than victor IOUs.

When grandmothers go bad and must be contained at any cost. This sometimes even includes swaddling them in the sweaters they knit for unsuspecting relatives.

What a medico with less training than a vet thinks his time as a private practitioner is worth.

The first few malformed semi-liquid lumps which are ejected from an icemaker until you get the settings just right.

An irrational fear of being rung up by foreigners.

A fussy cannibal who never eats people of his own tribe, but is a positive gourmand of other nations.  His Texan Turnovers or Fricassee of Frenchman are famous.
