Where did the term nervous nellie come from?
Ever heard the phrase, "Whoa, Nellie"? Nell, or Nellie, was an late 19th to early 20th century nickname for a female horse. It was particularly applied to one hitched to a wagon or buggy, probably because those mares were either the only one owned by the household or were the horse most tamed for the harness. Remember, this was the world before and on the cusp of the automobile. A horse was very important for transportation. Being close to the family, much like a pet, the horse would tend to be called by a name; a common name for a mare was Nell, or at least it was common enough that if you referred to a mare, you might use the term Nell. Horses can be jumpy or anxious in novel or quickly changing situations, a characteristic of the crowding of small towns and cities during this era. The horse could always be surprised or frightened by something around the next corner, or the ever changing activity around them. Hence the term Nervous Nellie came to be applied to a horse when it became jumpy in these situations.
If you want to put a whole exclamation in quotation marks, the exclamation point would be inside the quotation marks. For example, "He has a gun!" But there could also be something you want to put in quotation marks that is within the exclamation. For example, "Don't be such a 'Nervous Nellie' about everything we do!" In this case, it makes sense to put the phrase "Nervous Nellie" in quotation marks, and the exclamation point…
Nellie Olesen was played by Alison Arngrim. I don't know what you mean by the original. Nellie was never replaced in the series. After she married Percival Dalton, they had twins they moved to New York to take over Percival's fathers company after he became sick. After the move, Nellie and Percival didn't come back into the series until the 9th season. Nellie's parents adopted a child named Nancy who acted just like Nellie.
How do the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems operate antagonistically in emotional responses?
It's Nellie Bly, not bellies bly. Muckrakers was (is) a term used to characterize reform-minded American journalists who attacked established institutions and leaders who they deemed corrupt. (Muck = slimy dirt or filth. Rake = to gather material) Nellie Bly was a remarkable young woman who helped launch this new kind of investigative journalism.
According to David J. Reilly on a blog called "Nine Shirft," "Whoa, Nellie" was a frequent cry given by Gene Autry's pal, Frog Millhouse (Smiley Burnette), as he tried to stay aboard his horse, Ring-eyed Nellie. (I agree with the answer above. Nellie would get a bit too feisty while Autry rode her, so he would go "Whoa, Nellie", take it easy, to quiet her down.)
Of course she does. Every American Girl doll or Best Friend doll comes with the book they are either first introduced in (primary AG dolls) or are centered mainly around them (Best Friend AG dolls). For example:Nellie would come with Nellie's PromiseElizabeth would come with Very Funny ElizabethEmily would come with Brave EmilyRuthie would come with Really, Truly, RuthieAnd Ivy would come with Good Luck Ivy Hope this helps :)
