I remember this like it was yesterday. I was an undergrad and a couple of my girlfriends and myself were in a car going somewhere. The BeeGees song "More Than a Woman" came on the radio. Of course we were all singing and I noticed that Lucy was singing her heart out, but she was singing a whole different lyric than the rest of us. Lucy had thought until that very day that Maurice, Barry and Robin were singing "Bald-Headed Woman". Uh-huh!!! I have since learned that misheard lyrics are called mondegreens. Here are some Christmas mondegreens.
Everyone has a blog. Including that jolly old elf Santa. I always thought he and Mrs. Claus would have the coolest and best technology.
And speaking of Mr. and Mrs. Claus-You know those wonderful herd of flying reindeer they have. Well they are female. Yep. Male deer shed their antlers in November and December and if you recall Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen all have their antlers on for their longest ride. Females don't shed their antlers until the summer. You go girls.
Now I don't consider myself very creative, but I think I have come up with some good ideas. I thought of liposuction when I was a kid. Of course I was thinking that a vacuum cleaner hose could be used, and, well you get the picture. One other idea that I have actually put into practice is adding scent to paint. I think that I probably didn't use enough or perhaps my oils weren't concentrated enough because the scent didn't last long. I wonder if Anna Sova's aromatherapy additives will last?
I have always loved flash cards. I think that if you educated make education fun the educatee will tend to remember the eductaion. Catch my drift. These Flash of Brillance flash cards are very cool.
I wasn't going to get into this, but I'm ticked off about so why not. I have spoken before about the fact that I do not understand why people feel the need to come up to me and say rude things about me to me. I ended up running into someone that I use to work with about 10 or so years ago. Now I was in a store minding my own business and I heard my name. Now usually my first response is to flee-run like hell-haul ass. I have been known to duck down in a clothing store and hide, to knock over things trying to get away from people. Silly, ridiculous-yes. Can I stop myself? Only if trapped. This time I was trapped.
We chatted and one of the first things she tells me is you really look good in your face, but you've picked up a bit of weight. First of all does she think that I don't know that I am haven't gained weight? Does she think that having her hurt my feelings by pointing this out that I'm going to run out and join Weight Watchers? I will never, never understand this. I would never dream of telling her, your still built like a brick shithouse, but your mug looks like 25 miles of bad road. Maybe you should of stayed out of that sun. Or you know you are 10 years younger than me and your neck looks like reused crepe paper? Did I say anything like that? Of course not. Yes, maybe I'm terrible for even thinking those things, but I would never say them. Never, ever.
Okay, I am done. I swear I some days I just want to go on the highest hill, pull down my pants and just moon the hell out of everyone while screaming to everyone PISS UP A ROPE!!!!!!
"When I had youth I had no money; now I have the money I have no time; and when I get the time, if I ever do, I shall have no health to enjoy life. I suppose it’s the discipline I need; but it’s rather hard to love the things I do, and see them go by because duty chains me to my galley. If I ever come into port with all sails set, that will be my reward perhaps." - Louisa May Alcott
