Informal forms of address used when I was dirty or untidy from my father:
"Fly-be-night"
"Blacking brush"

After cleaning up I was "Shined polished and my ears put further back".

He had several words that corresponded to "Thingumy" when he couldn't think of the correct noun, "left handed (or cack-handed) capurtula" was my favoutite.
