quicko: bludge and mooch

Contrary to Quidditch and cats, these terms actually refer, in Australian slang, to doing nothing. One can also "bludge off" class or "mooch around," say, the shops.

Actually, I think you've got them around the wrong way. To bludge is to do nothing, to mooch is to scam free food/accommodation from your relatives.
