Words and Digits

The Magic Number (Guys Versus Girls)
Have you ever noticed how easy it is for a girl to get a guy's phone number? Today, some unnamed girl (well, she has a name, but I won't reveal it here) asked if I had a cell phone. I said that I did. Then she asked if she could have my number. I was like, "Sure." And she was like, "So it's that easy, huh?" That started me thinking, when things are reversed, I don't think it's usually quite that easy. That brings to mind this infamous quote: "We should practice getting girls' numbers by getting guys' numbers."

The Tiny Day-to-Day Accomplishments Of An Humble Blogger
Big thanks to Shane for his help on working out some code to expand/collapse text. I don't know a whole lot about html. Almost everything I know I have learned from blogging. I was very excited when I got that working. How sad is that?

Nice Jicamas
Have you heard of Rachel Ray? Well, she's more than just a pretty face with a nice figure and sexy voice. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah. I got to watching her "30 Minute Meals" program yesterday on the Food Network. Very interesting and entertaining. Check it out sometime. Although I can see me doing the exact same thing in my kitchen and it taking at least twice as long. There would also be a big mess.

The other problem I have is some of her ingredients. She was making her Heck of a Jicama Salad yesterday, and I was thinking, who has a couple of jicamas just lying in the fridge. I'm lucky if my grocery store has cucumbers. I can imagine the look on the manager's face if I asked if he had any jicamas :-) Actually, I may just try that.

Blog is 2004 Word Of The Year

Yes, but check out #10... "Online visitors to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate site were asked to nominate their favorite word, and "defenestration" won. The act of throwing someone or something out of a window was also the 10th most looked-up word online."

Defenestration!!! As Tammy would say, that's my word!

Oral Communications Translated Into Text
"His blog is so boring. It's like the tryptophan of blogs."

"You don't like it, do you?"
"Well, I mean, they can be gay if they want to. At least they don't shove it in your face."
"No, I mean the hot chocolate."
"Oh, it's OK."

"You get what you receive."
"I think it's you get what you give, or something."

"I could walk, but I'll just drive. It's colder than it looks outside. It's like a dream you try to remember but it's gone..."


  1. Do I know Rachel Ray?! She's my hero. I got the best Mexican lasagne recipe ever from watching her show. I can never cook her recipes in 30 minutes, though...45 is more like it.

  2. Ha ha. That's kinda what I figured. Well, when I write her to get an autographed pic, I'll get one for you, too ;-)
