Bonus Saturday!

Happy Bonus Saturday as well! Here are some random quotes...and some pictures to celebrate Squidsmas. Have a safe weekend, everybody. :D

"I just know that I'd be one of those people who, if they got shot in the hand, would start screaming like crazy."

"And he's, like, 'Now I see black dots. Now my arms are tingling. Now my legs are flailing randomly.' and I'm, like, 'Yeah. We noticed.'"

Person 1: [removes pencil from hair]
Person 2: "Yeah, can I have that back?"
Person 1: "Why did you put a pencil in my head?"
Person 2: "I thought it might cheer you up."
Person 1: "What logic is that? 'Here, let me stick a sharp object near your brain,' no, that doesn't work for Morgan!"
Person 2: "It works for Colleen..."
Person 3: "Colleen loves getting her brain stabbed."

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas!! For all those who don't celebrate Christmas, Happy Whatever Holiday You Celebrate! Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Dwali, Ramadaan, Three Kings' Day, New Year's Day, Wren Day (tomorrow in Ireland and a few other places), Boxing Day (also tomorrow, mostly in Britain), and anything else I've missed (which I'm sure is a ton. Feel free to tell me in the comments any you can think of! :D) Oh, and Squidsmas, of course. ;)

If you want to make someone else's life a little bit better in this Christmas season, feel free to continue voting for Shoes 4 The Shoeless and the many, many other great ideas out there...I'd explain it here for any who might have missed it, but you can just scroll down four posts to the "Christmas Squids, Shoes, and Duct Tape" post. Soon after that was posted, they rose from 5th place in their category to 4th place, so a hearty Thank You to anyone who voted, and who is continuing to vote, making others' lives better!
(Get it? A heart-y thank you? Haha...ha...okay, apparently I'm the only one laughing. So.)

Thank you, my loyal readers, followers, commenters, and those who are all of the above. You rock, and you always make my day brighter. Hope yours is brighter too, and that your winter is fantabulous!

Okay, that's enough of that stuff. On to the WFTH. Today's Words are Christmas-themed...there are a surprisingly small amount of those, but...whatevs. My comments, as always, are in italics! Enjoy! :D

"Ow! Teacher! Nick poked me in the eye with a candy cane!" And here you were thinking Christmas couldn't be violent. Well, you were wrong.

"Oh, it's only a Christmas cannibal, don't worry, move along." This was my cousin. I've really no idea how this applies to...anything...but whatevs.

Person 1: "Yeah, we're going to have a mysterious visitor who is very mysterious and nobody could know who it is and it's somebody from Narnia."
Person 2: "It's Father Christmas!" Lame. He's at, like, every department store. Bring on the unique--have Aslan be the guest visitor instead!

"Aah! Rudolph got stabbed in the head! And now he's dead!" The Christmas That Permanently Emotionally Scarred Several Children For movie ever.

This is a quick blog post STOP And it is pretending to be a telegram STOP As you might have noticed STOP Guess what STOP I got a chocolate version of Monopoly STOP Isn't that so freaking exciting STOP

Stop that STOP That's annoying STOP I mean it, cut it out!

That's better.

But seriously. Chocolate Monopoly...I may or may not have eaten 25-50% of the railroads already...that's going to make it harder to play...Lemme go check.

Okay, I'm back. Actually I ate all of them except Short Line. So nobody's really going anywhere in Monopoly-world today, unless they're over by the GO area, and at that point, why do you need to be traveling? (Though Broadway and Park Place might be out of commission as well, so there are fewer and fewer places to visit.)
Anyway. Today's WFTH are from the Fairly Mean category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :D

"I will be mad at you forever from the bottom of my heart." I kinda thought emotions from the heart were less hate-inclined...clearly, I was wrong.

"That was, like, you and your friend are walking through a mall, then a bear shows up, rips your friend's face off, and walks away." You're right, it was just like that. I think.

"[gasp] You're joining the dark side? Are you going to start drinking blood and eating in Ms. Luker's room?" 'Even worse...I'm eating with the principal!' 'Noooo!'

"Eye, stab you in the eye!" Why? I cry, for the hole in my eye. Hey, I'm a poet and I didn't know it.

"No dying in band!" After band, sure. But during band...there's simply too much paperwork. Just stave off 'till the bell rings.

"The one thing you must do when you look at other people's art, and they're trying really hard, is you giggle behind their back." All I need to know I learned from my teacher...who gave me this pearl of wisdom. Love it!

Wow. It's a very octopus-ish holiday this year. I saw two cephalopod-shaped ornaments yesterday in the same room, brought by two different people...this amuses me greatly. know the deal! Today's WFTH are from the Say What? category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"Don't you dare ish before the ish!" Oh. My bad. ....(ish)

"Spleens are the funniest body part." Duh.

"You just spilled all the air! Look, it's everywhere!" Um. Well, for one thing, sorry about the spill, but you can't really tell, can you? I mean, it just blends looks like it's already clearing up, you can't even see it!

"Y'all, please stop petting me." If you insist.

Hola, hola, hola! Dontcha love when people make Christmas cookies for a party...and then mess up on, like, half of them...and put the messed-up ones out for anyone (mostly me) to devour? Thought so. Me too. ;)

Today's WFTH are from the Food-Related category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :D

Person 1: "What about bananas swimming?"
Person 2: "They don't, that's what about them!" Not usually...

"Oops, I spilled my spicy milk." Well that sounds just delicious. NOT.

"I've been pizza-ed!" And here I didn't think you could make 'pizza' into a verb but I've clearly been proven wrong.

"Just make, like, a chicken leg." Oh, yeah? You're a chicken...leg...wait...that wasn't actually an insult to start with. Disregard! :D

Christmas Squids, Shoes, and Duct Tape

Hello, all! 'Tis Tuesday, a very good day when one doesn't have anything in particular to do. Guess what? I made a squid out of clay. It's exciting. And it's wearing an elf hat and a bemused expression. For Squidsmas Christmas, of course! :D

Oh, guess what else? Someone I know is applying for a grant to provide shoes to those without through the Pepsi-Refresh Everything program, and right now they're in fifth place for their category, and there are only 11 days left to's really easy to help out those in need, through this and other grants on the website; their Shoes 4 The Shoeless link is here and the website overall is here, so please feel free to visit these, you can vote to support ten grant ideas daily either by clicking a button that says "Vote" or, for this particular one, by texting 104665 to PEPSI (73774). Then, you can relax and know that you've helped someone in need. :) Thanks so much!

Okay, now I'm done with proponing (is this the right word?) things for the day (hopefully for a while), so now on to the Words from the Hallway! Today's are from the Say What? category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"You know what. I really cannot remember why I was screaming." Clearly it wasn't too terribly traumatic then.

"I'm allergic to flash photography." Say cheese achoo!!

Person 1: "Can we duct-tape you to a wall for non-preachy reasons?"
Person 2: "OK." ...duct tape...part of a nutritious, healthy breakfast...or something....

"Ryan, don't tell me you don't suck on toothpaste!" Well, I won't tell you but...

Teacher: "Any questions?"
Student: "Could you swim in pudding?" I'm pretty sure she meant 'Any questions related to electrons?' but, ya know, whatever...

"If they want to jump into a stolen car and drive themselves to Charleston, South Carolina, without a license, I can't stop them. Even if they're really supposed to be getting on a plane to New York. Even if the whole plot depends on them getting on that plane to New York. If they don't want to get on, there's nothing I can do about it." I really hope we're talking about fictional characters, here.

"Am I stupid or are you just joking?" Do I have to pick just one?

Oatmeal Muffin Day. Rather Anticlimactic.

Or something. I mean, really? Oatmeal muffin day? You can have oatmeal muffins any day! Instead of a lame picture of an oatmeal muffin, I would like to post the following picture that came up when "oatmeal muffin" was googled.
Ohmigosh. It's a double rainbow muffin! ...or something.

Um. Anyway.

Today's WFTH are from the Rather Duh-Inspiring category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

Person 1: "Don't eat it! You can't eat it!"
Person 2: "Why not?"
Person 1: "'Cause it's, like, metal!"
Person 2: "It's candy, though!" Mmm. Metal candy...with the same great oxidizing taste!

"Hey, that rhymes! 'Together,' 'special'...oh wait, no it doesn't." No. It really doesn't. But thanks for sharing!

Person 1: "[announces answer]"
Teacher: "Nope."
Person 1 [to Person 2]: "You're dumb!"
Person 2: "Well, you're the one copying me!" Wow.

"Needles are usually pointy." Oh! I was wondering why it was so painful to touch the end.

"It's noon again!" Yeah...that happens pretty much every day...

Send-it-in Sunday!

Ah, 'tis Send-it-in Sunday, once again! Please feel free to post any WFTH you may have heard in the comments! :) Also, have a fantabulous week! :D

So, today's Words are from the Say What? category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"They had people fighting, with muskets, in their underwear!" And why they had muskets in their underwear, we will never know. Most people at least used pockets, but...whatevs.

"Well, after Leo unleashed about six plot bunnies to gnaw at my brain, he is being less reclusive." Well that's good. I think. Not entirely sure on that point.

"You yourself said you stalked the dude in the cave!" Good point. I almost forgot.

"Shut it, you'll hurt her feelings. And when she gets mad, let's just say she grows wings. Flaming wings." Yes, let us just say that.

"I have so many cows." Is that a complaint, or just a statement of fact?
