No. It means God-d**mned Independent, i.e. someone who didn't join a sorority or fraternity.*Warning* This post will self-destruct in 30 seconds.*
At least it won't be all GDIs That being said, I have a feeling it won't be extremely "fratty" Greeks as a whole. (unfortunately)
: : Can anyone tell me the origin of the phrase, "Little Miss Goodie Two Shoes"? Or, can you point me to a good source for history of phrases? Thank you!: GOODY TWO-SHOES - "A person who is affectedly good or proper; a person who is uncommonly good. Maybe just a mite too good and a bit too optimistic and a tad too nice? In an 18th-century nursery tale, believed to have been written by Oliver Goldsmith, the (Irish-born) English novelist, poet, and playwright. Good Two-shoes is very poor and has but one shoe. When she is given a pair she is so happy that she tells everyone that she has 'two shoes' - hence, her name. She later become wealthy, in the way of worthy nursery-tale children. Thus a goody two-shoes is someone like her; properly behaved, happy, cheerfully optimistic, nice. As you might guess, the term has acquired a negative aura; someone too nice to be completely sincere." From "Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Allusions" by Elizabeth Webber and Mike Feinsilber (Merriam-Webster, Springfield, Mass., 1999).
KATheta, i'd assume? See, now I'm curious where you went to school -- they were founded at my ugrad.
