Blazen and blazing hussies

I know that I am being a blazen hussy by even suggesting this,

You blazen hussy!

A little bit ago, she called my girl a Blazen Hussy!

You can see the confusion with “blazing”:

the thought of my grandma getting down and dirty is difficult enough to stomach, but to think she was a blazing hussy having sex before marriage – GASP

max thinks hannah is a “blazing hussy” but

Maybe a kiss. Or two. (OVER THE COURSE OF 2 HOURS, I’M NOT A BLAZING HUSSY.)

Shades of “flaming” and “flamboyant” perhaps?

Apparently “brazen” is to do with “brass” and not with “brazier”.

Sometimes the water flows uphill…

Web fiction: “The brazen speed meant for sore muscles. ”

Blog entry: “As if to challenge my brazen speed my teacher corrected my exam right in front of me. ”

Web fantasy: “The druid sped between branches at a brazen speed that scared squirrels and birds amongst the dense cluster of trees stretching out on all sides. ”

Brazenly delish. Blazen hussies! Here’s a ever-so-slight variant that might be an ingredient.

That being said, she went from sweet bubble gum girl to blazon hussy!

It makes you wonder how some people view emblazon: inscribe upon by flame? Or your woodburning kit? A blason was a shield to the Normen, whereon the coat of arms was blazed.
