That’s A Tasty Snack!

I’ve been making my shopping lists on ZipList.  It comes in really handy, because I can type the list out on my computer and automagically flies over to the app on my phone.  But every time I make a list, I crack up a little because the program sorts your items into the areas of the store it thinks you’ll find the product.  Let’s look at my current Target list, shall we?

I was also a little worried about that Worcestershire sauce up there, because when I was typing it in, the drop down list said “Personal Items: Worcestershire Sauce”.  I mean, yeah, I’m the only one in the house that uses it, but I don’t think that word means what they think it means.  Just sayin’.  Thankfully once it was on the list, it ended up in the proper category.

BTW, in case you were wondering, I checked it with duffel spelled correctly, and it still puts it in snacks.

The post in which I make him look dumb.

My boyfriend is, hands down, the smartest person I know.  Insufferably so.  He can fix just about any problem that’s presented to him.  He does calculus in his head.  He can outsmart anyone in a debate.  He baffles the mind.  He’s not human.  There are times, however, when I can get the better of him.  Especially when it comes to words.  It’s not that he’s bad with words–he’s amazing, actually, and thoroughly enjoys etymology almost as much as I do.  He just sometimes has a hard time grasping the word he’s supposed to use.

Por ejemplo:

The Hippy (while talking about something highly political that I have long since forgotten… probably wasn’t even listening): Blah blah blah Manga Carta.

DK: *blank stare*

TH:Well, am I wrong?

DK: Probaby not, but your point would probably be stronger if you didn’t call it the Manga Carta.

Because The Hippy is so damned smart, I often feel like an idiot.  It feels really, really good to come up with the snippy comment or have a great idea, even if it happens once in a blue moon.  I know he feels a little proud when I show some smarts, but he also hates it when I come up with something he didn’t come up with first.  I think that happened yesterday when we were making grilled cheese and turkey sandwiches…

DK: I left the knife on top of the pile in case you wanted to use it again.

TH: Oh, so you just thought I’d want another sandwich, huh?  That’s awfully pretentious of you.

DK: I think you mean presumptuous.  *Pause*  That was pretentious.

TH: Yeah, thanks for giving me that example…

At which point I promptly went back to my role of being the village idiot.  It’s a role I’ve been in my entire life; it’s where I’m most comfortable.

X-Mas X-Post!

My present to myself today (you know, other than the new sewing machine… *whistles innocently*(*cough* and the crock pot*cough*)) is to go easy on the blogging. So I’m cross posing, suckas!

Merry Christmas to all my readers and anyone who happens to stumble on this mess. I hope you eat your fill and get everything you wanted and nothing you didn’t. I also hope you get many pleasant surprises, because those are the best.

Stand back; I’m contagious.

I’ve been laughing so hard for the last twenty minutes or so that I have tears rolling down my face.  Apparently laughter is contagious even when you’re alone.

On their own, Engrish photos illicit a chuckle for the most part.  But grouped together in a blog such as Engrishfunny.com, these things are almost a lethal weapon.  I feel the same way about LOLcats, but Engrish isn’t intending to be funny.  And I think that makes them funnier.

Speaking of LOLcats, I discovered The LOLcat Bible Translation today.  Awesome.  I only made it through a couple paragraphs of Genesis while on my break, but I couldn’t stop laughing.  Good times.

ETA: I just came across this one, and it’s too damn fitting not to include in this post!
