WHO INVITED YOU? by The Donnas

You may have noticed a few new links off to the left.

Half the time I'm not sure how I come across a new blog. Most times it is a lot like my rambling mind. I'll see a title that sounds interesting and I'll check it out. Sometimes I hit upon a good post and read another one just for the fun of it. Before you know it I'm going back through archived posts to see what other amsuing anecdotes have been told.

Does This Mean I'm Grown Up? is a great read from a mother of two, small business owner, who writes about the humorous side of life. In her own words, "The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying." No tears here!

I Read The Comics So You Don't Have To recently changed site names because of a similar site. Now known as Comic Curmudgeon, Josh has found a way to put into words what I find myself thinking every time I scan the comic strips in a paper.

Garden State Blog is written by Zach Braff of Scrubs fame. He is also the writer/director of the movie, Garden State. What a coincidence!?! I love the show and Zach's eclectic humor. A good read for the funky white boy in all of us.

DRESS YOU UP by Madonna

I’ve never been a slave to fashion. I was not the kid who begged my providers for the latest style of shoes. I didn’t have to have a certain brand of jeans. I think this picture is proof enough that I wasn’t a fashionista when I was growing up. Even now, while I like to have clothes that look nice, I don’t have to shop at high priced or trendy stores. God Bless Super Target!!

I once swore off going into Old Navy at our local mall because it was too bright. Not just the lighting (which was extremely bright on its own). I swore the store as a whole. The concept of so many perky faces overly willing to point out their sales made me a little nauseated.

I did finally break down and purchase some clothes at Old Navy, once. They were having a storewide sale and I needed some new clothes. My overall experience was fine, but it did leave me with an odd unsettling feeling. Did my purchase just encourage some teenager that they were doing a good job? Might that be the motivation they needed to go talk to someone else about the low low prices? Could I have unintentionally inflicted such drone-ism behavior on to another unsuspecting person like myself who just stopped in to by a t-shirt?

I needed disinfectant.

What goes along with this is a side of me that I’ve noticed is growing more and more hostile at times. While I may not dress in haute-couture, I have no problem remarking or exclaiming when I notice someone else who hurts my eyes. I blame Will & Grace and What Not To Wear.

Some of the comments made on WNTW are just too funny. Those style bitches make me laugh from deep within. It’s a morbid fascination to watch this show and see how some people present themselves. It’s like watching Extreme Makeover, but only for a person’s wardrobe.

Like I said… I’m not Calvin Klein, but seeing Karen comment on an outfit that Grace is wearing because it looks like it should on the hull of the space shuttle to protect it during re-entry is just too good!

There’s a special place in hell for hypocrites like me.

Ok... I have to keep in mind that some of these searches pulled up my page because they were just looking for those words on the page. Not because of the exact phrase itself. Some of them are humorous references from shows I know I've commented on. Such as "the atomic weight of bolognium" or "These Are Days" which is a favorite song of mine and thus used to title posts every now and then.

Yet, some of these searches I just don't understand... I am afraid to know what sinister intent the person might have when they typed in "gaudy pointlessness of a cuckoo clock in Hell." or "comical names for a gardener." What about Hamburgerler Pictures? Have I talked about The Hamburgerler enough to create a search?

Some are just too vague... I hope someone wasn't looking for something specific when the typed in "comical" or "comical pictures" into Google. How bored are you to type "height" into a search engine. What were you hoping to find?

These are all rhetorical questions folks... I really don't care to know if you were looking for a comical picture of how tall the Hamburgerler really is. If you find out... Wonderful! I hope it makes your day.

Though, I am curious who the "male actor in advil cold and sinus tv commercial" really is. Seriously... I'm stumped too.

WORD UP by Cameo

Have you ever seen or said a word so much that after a while it begins to stop making sense?

It seems to happen to me with more common everyday words. The more unusual or less common words already have a slight sense of nonsense about them. For instance, the word 'blog' is an uncommon word in most circles to 'lose' it's meaning to quickly, because not everyone knows what the word means.

Blog blog blog blog blog blog blog blog and so on... But a word like month when seen repeated can start to sound or seem odd.

Month month month month month month month month month month month month month month month month month month month month...

I mention this because I collect data as part of the research study I work with. I see the word month a lot in a month, in terms of "1 month" or "6 month." As I scroll down a list of entries to see who has completed their "1 month" or "6 month" follow-up, and see the word month over and over and over, it doesn't take too long before I start to look at the word month and it seems like a nonsense word.

You can try it for yourself! Pick a decently common word, like month, milk, cupboard, lights, plow, or some every day word... Say it over and over to yourself and see how long it takes before it starts to 'lose' meaning. It's like verbal hypnosis. Maybe it's the 'pattern' of the word over and over again. Maybe it's the repeated sound.

Did you ever read Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll? It's pretty much the opposite of what I'm talking about here. Carroll took nonsense words and used them in such an everyday and common way that you had a sense you knew exactly what he was trying to say.

The slithy toves are gimbling again?! You're kidding me!? What? They're gyring as well... That's just unheard of in these parts.

In a semi-related note... I am SICK of the phrase "step up." Every time I hear it, I start to question to verbal capacity of the person speaking. Can they not think of another phrase to use? Is it so 'cool' to use the phrase "step up" that everyone has to say it?

A few years ago, everyone was telling everyone to "step down." Well, everyone listened too well. I guess now we've stepped to far down and need to step back to where we were.

This has come about because I watch shows like Survivor and Real World/Road Rules varieties. You can't go five minutes on The Real World/Road Rules Challenge without hearing the phrase "step up" being served back and forth like a tennis match.

Well... If that wasn't a ramble, I don't know what is.
