Hullo,

Sucks, sucky, etc are usually used every so often in place of words like: awful, terrible, lame, etc. :P

Just common everyday slang. :P

Roroflex? I'm not too sure about what that means! Sorry about that. :oops:

Hopefully my explanation on sucky made sense to you. :oops:

I think that is "Roloflex", an old kind of address book made with index cards that you "roll".
