Get the hooky mug.
A nickname for Peter Hook, bassist in Joy Division and then New Order, as well as side projects Revenge and Monaco. Uniquely, his bass takes the role of a lead guitar in most Joy Divison and New Order songs. He plays it at round about knee level and staggers about and appears to be fighting with it.
Hooky is a grumpy sod, but a fantastic bass player.

A day in which liberty is taken upon oneself to exclude themself from school or work obligations while, most likely, pretending to be sick or having a death in the family. Usually this time is spent with a significant other (i.e. hookie for nookie), a sports activity (i.e. golf or playstation), or just plain sitting on ones ass all day editing & writing definintions for modern slang words over the internet. Commonly referred to as "playing hookie".
