Go Toward The Light.

At Least He Wasn't Wearing Them.

Last week, Winston the Emo Beagle swiped some clothes
from the laundry basket and chewed them up...

...but that's not the story my husband will tell.

Think VodkaMom's the bomb? Let her know with a quick vote here. ( can vote once per day.)

I've been spending a lot of time
over here lately. I think you'll like it, too.

Fun With Words

What I Really Need Is Some Joke Insurance.

My conversations are much more colorful for about 24 hours after browsing I say things like:

"Dang, this swimsuit won't work. It gives me total underboob."

"Dude, I know your team lost, but don't have a mantrum."

"I've already called you once for dinner.
Don't make me use my Upper Case voice!"

See? Fun.

Get On With It.


So, without thinking it through at all after much deliberation, I submitted two little catch-phrases of my own to UrbanDictionary. Just to see what would happen. Here they are:

  1. The identification of a person by their habitual coffee drink order.
  2. A fake name used when ordering coffee drinks.
  1. (at coffee chain store) "They didn't ask you what drink you wanted." "Nah, they know my chai-dentity here."
  2. "Why does it say 'Tom Petty' on the side of your Starbucks cup?" "Dude, that's my chai-dentity."
Writer's Crock

When someone inflates, exaggerates or
fabricates their literary accomplishments.

She bragged that she'd written a book, but turns out all she had was a title.
What a total writer's crock.


(Sorry, I've just always wanted to have a header that said "Shazam!")

Anyway, UrbanDictionary accepted one of them. Which one do you think they went for? Here's a hint:
Group Participation

UrbanDictionary has a "thumbs up/thumbs down" system for all of its words. There's no registration or sign-in...just a single click. (To review: "up" or "down.")

If you have a thumb that's just hanging there doing nothing, I'd love it if you could use it for a second to point "up" just once for my entry. To do so, you can clickIf, on the other hand, you think they should have picked the other phrase, simply vote your preference by clicking on "thumbs up"
Think the whole UrbanDictionary notion is ridiculous? Let them know by casting your "thumbs up" voteTired of terrible late-night TV programming? Me, too! Let's tell 'em with an angry thumbs-up vote
Sick of paying taxes? Don't even get me started! Let's get rid of taxes altogether with a thumbs-up vote
Thanks very much for thumbing!

And thank you to the always-fabulous Cynthia at Muse Swings for linking to my post about how the Mayans are trying to ruin my birthday by blowing up the world.
