A girl that approaches, gives that head tilt, puppy dog eyes and glossy lips. No sound comes out, All you hear is the rushing of the wind, and see a tumble-weed moving in a flip, stop, drag motion, inside their heads. Creating nothing but a cloud of dust behind it.

A girl that has very little to offer in the way of conversation or intellect. Usually attractive.
"Oh look Tumble-weed"
"Fuck off out of my face Tumble-weed, you have nothing to offer"

Dusty aggregation of plant matter rolled along the ground by the desert wind. A cliche of Western movies, emphasising silence or stillness, e.g. as the hero rides into an apparently deserted frontier town. Often used in connection with the death of a conversation after one participant unwittingly reveals that they are a moron. See also tumbleweed moment.
"But then Katie made a singularly unfunny cancer joke..."
"Ah. Tumbleweed?"
"Yeah."

Weed (in nug or container form) that has been carried away by the wind, aka tumbling away in the wind.
Dude, we never did get up to see where our tumbleweed ended up... It's probably across the yard by now.

Something to say during an uncomfortable silence or awkward pause in conversation. the conversation is so dead that a tumbleweed could be blowing through the people you are hanging out with like a desert.
