Balloons & Bingo

“So Fred, do you want to come over and join us?” “I know what you want me tah do,” “Oh yes? What is that, Fred?” “You want me tah spank ya!” Sometimes age doesn’t matter.  Sometimes 89 and 42 can work. At least in a nursing home. Fred lives there, the nurse might feel like it, but in actuality, “purely…

Werner Herzog’s Note to His Cleaning Lady

Today I walked into our apartment and YIKES. Not a tidy place. This is unfortunately rather normal when things get busy. Which is often. It is at these (frequent) times that I wish I had access to magic, or Cinderella’s mice & birds, or at least a maid. But even then there’s potentially that issue of expense, privacy, and things…

Let’s take a moment…

After all my lofty talk of inspiration, creativity, academia, and research, it is time to take a minute for the more visceral side of things.

Edward Gorey is a beloved, quirky illustrator whose works toe the line between creepy and quirky. Or maybe he just melts the two together in a delicious mix. This has provided for much smirking and chuckling, another preferred…

EMG!

By no means a brand, spanking new colloquialism, still our stumbling across this saying, more specifically, this pronunciation has caused more giggles and guffaws than is probably necessary. But it’s so hilarious! For your own hearing pleasure/confusion, I present: ERMAHGERD! This unconventional way of saying “Oh my god!” is just too weird and random not to be funny–unless of course…

Disappointed.

Evan Esar said, “Hope is tomorrow’s veneer over today’s disappointment.” Disappointment is something we all find our experiences rife with–especially when it’s often the negative that comprises our most persistent memories. This can be depressing, sure, but it can also be fairly diverting. Consider the quantity of “awkward moment” points potentially earned over time and through observation. These happenings usually make…
