From what we've seen the teenage boys in Wasila do okay, except for that no birth control thing.

I am mildly amused (and also mildly irritated) by the situation with my car.

I took it in for its 200,000km service. All fluids and oils changed, plugs, filters etc etc, plus replace the water pump and the timing belt, certain other timing related thingies. This is looking at being in the $1500 range, but I knew that before I bought this car.

I took it in on Wednesday, planning to get it late Thursday.

Wednesday was one of the wettest days here in ages. The water got into the power circuits at the mechanics, and took out the power to the hoist.

The one my car was one.

While my car was six feet in the air.

And it won't come down without power.

Ah. Slight delay.

So it is now Friday and the hoist is working (as is the mechanic) but I wish my car was back already. Meh.

I was mildly amused today when I heard the term Dumbicide used to describe Darwin Award-like deaths......

Friend of mine in high school would tell girls "Chicks can touch the tips of their elbows behind their back."

And when they tried it, they didn't realize they would stick their boobs way way out; and he would say "Oh stop bragging!"

Actually this amused me a LOT today.
And is still raising a chuckle as I rehash it.

After THRASS the children focus on a certain phoneme, and Mrs M writes words up on the board. When I took phonics in Reception I played "Trash or Treasure" and this is similar. Today the phoneme was qu. The sequence as I remember it was queen, quep, quiet... and then a nonsense word. But it wasn't actually a nonsense word. She wrote quim on the board.

I immediately looked over at Mrs J on the other side of the class with big alarmed eyes. She looked back with the same. We looked at Mrs M who was happily sounding out quim and obviously none the wiser. At that point we both got the snorts and had to look away from the board and eachother. By this point it was decided it was a nonsense word and it was all done. Oh, except Luke shot his hand up and said, "No it isn't, I know what it means!" At which point a coughing fit necessitated my exit to the staff room to get a glass of water.

Of course Luke didn't know what we knew at all, he had it mixed up with another word.

Oh my. That coughing fit brought tears to my eyes. Priceless.
I can't wait till we do words starting with cu.

According to Urban Dictionary it means fuck!
I will not swear hand on heart that she used that word.

Why all of a sudden
is everyone writing posts
like they're writing pomes?

Maybe they think
they're using an old typewriter
and have to return the carriage before
it runs out
of room.

The style, while annoying,
is most certainly contagious.
Everybody's doing it!
Join the
fun.
