Bonus Saturday Post! :)

This is a bonus post! Here's the explanation...someone said to 'post this on your blog,' only I'm not sure that works with mine, as my blog isn't really a journal of my life or I'm going to fill in the answers with the Words From The Hallway that seem like they would fit the answers. :) The green text was the original question, purple is my answer, and the things in quotes are the Words From The Hallway! ...yeah, who knows how this is gonna turn out. :)

1. The phrase or punctuation I overuse most is..."And then I put 'this calculator will self-destruct.'" 
2. Today I am thankful for...the fact that "I drew a kite on my hand! I don't know why!"
3. My best friend is..."Galen, fish!" but "You can still root for dilly bars."
4. A quirky thing about me is that..."I has a scary." also, "We're all gonna rejoice now."
5. This weekend I am going that "the shower won't bite, Tim, promise." (this time)
6. Something that worries me is..."OK, so the world's gonna blow up when I'm reaching for my diploma?"
7. On my night stand you would find..."English walnut!"

I dunno. XD

National Cheese Doodle Day!

Happy Cheese Doodle Day, everyone! How exciting is that?

Look how much fun this guy is having. You, too, can celebrate National Cheese Doodle Day by emptying, like, a semi trailer full of them into your living room. Try to vacuum that up! Ha!

...sorry. Couldn't resist. :D

On a less edible note, today's Words are from the category of Say What? My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"I need more toucans in my life." Don't we all.

"I'm gonna read like a banshee this weekend." So, with lots of screaming involved, I'm guessing. Am I right?

"It's almost more pathetic than my spontaneously combusting soul." Almost, except not at all. Nothing could be more pathetic than that.

"C'mon, the trash can is not gonna eavesdrop!" It's that rogue recycling bin you gotta watch out for.

National Grammar Day!

Happy National Grammar Day, everyone! And may I be the first to remind you: Prepositions are not words to end sentences with. Which Tassel should probably agree with...the.corner.chair, Tassel, these pictures are for you! :)

There was another one that appeared either too small or too fuzzy. But with two phrases ("Let's eat Grandpa!" and "Let's eat, Grandpa!"), I learned that commas save lives. :)

...Is it weird that, ever since starting this post, I have inadvertently been making tons of grammar mistakes, far more than normal, out of the stress of trying not to make any grammar mistakes in a post about grammar? Yup. Thought so. Thank goodness for the backspace key! :)

So. Anyway. Today's Words are from the Conversations category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

Person 1: "What can we do to make her feel better besides push her out a window?"
Person 2: "In what way is being pushed out of a window therapeutic?"
Person 1: "Oh, you know...the relaxing."
Person 2: "Do you speak from experience?" Why do you think she's so stress-free lately?


Person 1: "What if you were a nostril-i-vore?"
Person 2: "You can't eat a nostril--nostrils are holes."
Person 1: "So you'd be an air-o-vore...What if you were an eyebrow-o-vore?"
Person 2: "I am." ...nostril-i-vore? As in, eating nostrils? ...why this comes up as a topic of conversation at my school I shall probably never know.


Person 1: "You can always run away screaming and flailing your arms above your head."
Person 2: "That's what we do." Sound advice. And how does that work out for you, exactly?


Person 1: "[Her soul] was in my squeaked when I stepped on it."
Person 2: "Did you leave it in there?"
Person 1: "Yes, and it left glitter on my feet." ...oookaaaaay...really not sure what to do with this information...

So many holidays AGAIN!

What's with that? There are, like, a million holidays today, too! I mean, it's cool and all, but I'm kinda getting overwhelmed here. It's hard to celebrate all of these at once, people. :) For one thing, it's Peach Blossom Day. But it's also National Anthem Day...I'm not sure if this is a national holiday celebrating all anthems or a smaller holiday celebrating national anthems...somebody research this and get back to me. ;) And it's also I Want To Make You Happy Day. So...please, somebody make me happy by singing a (national) anthem about peach blossoms, and we'll be all set. Oh, and I was also told (falsely) by my homeroom teacher and a student in said homeroom, both of whom were dressed up, that it was Dress Professionally Day, and didn't I get the memo. Well, no. No, I didn't. Also, I would like to state that even if that is a real holiday, which I doubt, it wasn't today, even if it was written (this morning, as I watched) on the calendar of my homeroom teacher.


...I also doubt that the other holiday my homeroom teacher deemed today to be, "Thank God Cats Taste Like Chicken Day," exists. At least I hope not. I am about 99% sure he made that up on the spot, but there is always that nagging thread of doubt...okay, I'm 100% sure. Nagging thread? Gone!

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

"What if we give them gills?" Would you like fries with those gills? Or just mayonnaise?

"Hey, guess what, I'm a blowfish!" How very nice for you.

"No campaigning in class!" Oh, so you'll allow mowing the fish in class, but campaigning is out? That seems a bit unfair! ...who would possibly want to mow a fish in class, I have no idea, but I can only assume it's allowed. If not, I think I'm going to sue. Although I usually mow my fish at the library. Hmm.

Person 1: "When I come back, there'd better be chicken and rejoicing."
Person 2: "Those things do usually go hand in hand." Oh, indubitably.

Happy Everything Day!

Okay, it's not really Everything Day. But it seems like it! I mean, for one thing, it's Wednesday. That in and of itself is cool; am I right or am I left? But it's also Read Across America Day!!!! Woot! (Hence the BFG reference--a book by Roald Dahl, in which the Big Friendly Giant frequently gets his words all muddled, asking things like 'am I right or am I left?') And, it's Dr. Seuss's 107th birthday!!!! Happy b-day to you, Ted Geisel! Go speak for those trees that have stars upon thars whilst hopping upon pops and seeing if oh, say, can you say. ...or something. Oh yeah, and make sure your cat in his hat doesn't eat all of your red fish blue fish. :)

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

"They eat all the bread in my house which makes them carnivores. I mean cannibals." Same thing, really.

Person 1: "Look, sis! A cat!"
Person 2: "That's a newspaper."
Person 1: "Oh." ...see previous comment.

"Yes, explosion is generally seen as a negative reaction." Says you.

Person 1: "Ew--you had fish for dinner? That's why you were sick!"
Person 2: "I had a migraine!" ...Your point?
