Nastame

What does that mean?

I am reading so many blogs and they....the bloggers are using this word. I refuse to google it. I'm sure it just another "new age" expression of some sort.


Some just sign off and say Nastame... and others go..Nastame Bitches! when signing on. I am putting myself in the dark, because sooner or later someone has to give me a hint on their blog to what it means....ya know..so I can relate to what they are talking about before they hit the Nastame button.

Is it a bean?

Does it mean ...hello or goodbye in another language?

Is it a "high five" in Zimbabwe?

I'm trying to figure out the Latin origin.in my head, which is totally useless...but I do remember taking that course in school in the early 1900's.

It's been taking over my life for the past week.

Nast...what is nast? nasty? I'm thinking if you said the word aloud you would say nahhhstame. Nothing is working for me with this word.

The closest I can come up with is Nasturtium, but that's a flower.

Are the bloggers greeting each other with a "flower word" followed with the word "bitches?

The word actually sounds like a power word. You pump your arm up and go....Nastame Bitches! But then when the sign off they say "have a good day"...Nastame. huh?

It's a fucking secret code. And no... I will not google it! But it's making me and my dog very edgy, because I called my dog Nastame today. Who knows, this might be the name of a famous dog. Penny didn't come when I called her Nastame. She took the high road, and gave me a look that said "have another drink you Nastame wine soaked bitch. " So, obviously the word has something to do with either bitches or maybe witches or wine.

NO..I will not look it up.

I'm not any closer to figuring it out then when I started.

Maybe it means "Peace" in another language. I just thought about that. Well if it does...for god's sake just say so...trust the young one's to fuck up all the sayings we had in the 60's., and try to make it their own. But, on the other hand they are not saying "Nastame Out." And I don't think they have flowers eg. Nasturtiums in their hair.

I am still ...so puzzled.

And, don't go and look it up and tell me what it is. I'm going to figure this out by myself.

Namaste means.....oh.....should I tell you? I use it frequently (but not in writing). I also use it as a joke. Na-mas-te and na-mas-go. I won't tell you what it means. I think you are having more fun figuring it out.

Namaste, mi amiga!

When I come across uncommon words that everyone seems to know the meaning of except me, I figure they're just showing off their knowledge of something new. Sometimes I look them up, sometimes not.

You have it spelled wrong--which is why you can't figure it out :-)

Namaste...I find it to be one of the most amazing words ever, enlightening and unifying at the same time!
