A "hood up day" is a phrase used to describe any day for which:

One's physiological state is less than preferable on awakening.

AND the course of action taken to rectify this situation is to conduct the daily routine in a hooded sweatshirt with the hood of the aforementioned sweatshirt up over one's head.

causes for a hood up day may include: flu, swine flu, man flu, female "tummy aches", TVOD, GFDI (girlfriend disengagement illness), BFDI (boyfriend disengagement illness), embarassment, lazyness, depression, cock blocking, WBCFS (work backlog chronic fatigue syndrome), FPS withdrawal syndrome, being mauled by a bear, failing an exam, rape, car sickness, realisation of lack of funds, watching "marley and me", bad night's sleep, no night's sleep, post mid day nap dizziness, dehydration, hunger, bad hair day, failure (all forms) and rejection

However the most common cause of a hood up day is the consumption of copious ammounts of alcohol the previous night, resulting in a catostrophic hangover.
Example 1 (as an exclaimation, and an explaination)
man 1: oh, hi steve i was wonderi...
man 2(interupts): HOOD UP DAY!
man 1: ok maybe later.

Example 2 (used in a phone convesation)
girl 1:hi
girl 2:oh, hiya jen
girl 1:seriously becca, you have to come over and make me feel better i'm having a massive hood up day
girl 2:i'm on it i've got the little mermaid on dvd, but you need to decide, cookie dough or phish food

"heterosexual", "believable", "attractive", "exciting",

"damn it, all my coursework was on that computer, this is less than preferable"

"i swear, that is not mine"
"that's less than believable"

"wow that three hour lecture on the composition of soil was less than exciting"

"really, you're wearing a pink tank top and hotpants? well that is less than heterosexual"

"mate, wtf, you're fucking my mum?!"
"yeah, i guess that for you this arrangement is less than preferable"

"oh shit my blood tests are back and they're not good"
"well, that's less than preferable"

The chocolate gauntlet is the aisle in a shop which the queue runs through, it is normally stocked with chocolate bars, sweets, condoms and other impulse items. So it is almost impossible to run the chocolate gauntlet without being tempted to buy something.
Steve only went in to buy milk but had to run the chocolate gauntlet, and ended up buying spending all of his beer money.
