200th Post!

Um, wow. This is the 200th post on Words From The Hallway...I know. I'm kinda stunned. I feel like we should do something to celebrate. So...I'm going to have a contest! I've got a book and some candy (photo below) that can be won by you, yes you, in a random drawing!

All you've got to do is...become a member and leave a comment on this post by Saturday, March 26, 2011, by 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time!

To have better chances to win this contest, you can have multiple entries! You get one entry for becoming a member (if you're already a member, you get an automatic entry), one entry for leaving a comment on this post, and one additional entry for every new member who mentions you in their comment on this post! (As in, "Eve S. D'ropper told me about this contest!" for example ;D)

Here's a picture of what you could win:

A new copy of the book Physik by Angie Sage (part of the Septimus Heap series), and a pack of cherry Twizzler Bits!

Hopefully, there will be more contests in the future--but you will never know when they will occur! So...good luck! :) Thanks for reading Words From The Hallway!

And speaking of those words of wisdom's Words are from the category of Say What? My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"Why is there a dinosaur in the fruit bowl?" Um, why wouldn't there be a dinosaur in the fruit bowl?

Person 1: "Ohmigosh! You almost tripped me!"
Person 2: "I was actually trying to tie your shoe. With my feet." Yyyeah. Right. ...I mean, 'oh, how kind of you!'

"Don't call me a lightbulb." I've already got a cab, and lightbulbs, frankly, don't move as fast. I dunno watt that's all about.

"What are you doing with my kneecap?" Is this one of those rhetorical questions? Because if not, I don't think you want to hear the answer. But I'll give you a hint: It has something to do with Brazilian slime and a very chewy gummi bear.

"[completely seriously] Follow the sound of the Oy." Is this like meditation? *crosses legs* Oyyyyyy...oyyyyyyyy...oyyyyyy....ah, I feel so relaxed already!

Happy World Kidney Day!

Along with that theme (except not at all), today's Words are from the Fairly Mean category! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"'Cause you're annoying! I could ski off your hair! Shut up!" The thing about skiing off hair,'s so annoying, 'cause all the dried-up gel really fudges up your ski it's just gross.

"She looks like a lobster." I'm actually gonna take that as a compliment. I mean, who doesn't want to be like a red crustacean?, um...crusty?

Person 1: "Is she dead?"
Person 2: "No, I'm getting inspiration! Shut up!" Or I'll ski off your hair.

"I was checking the grooves on this and accidentally mauled you...[sarcastic] my bad!" Yeah. Kind of is, actually. But that's okay...I'll be contacting you in the form of sue-age (actually that sounds really gross when you say it out loud) after I need a SPLEEN TRANSFUSION! But of course I'm FINE!

Happy Festival of Life In The Cracks Day!!

...whatever that may mean.

Okay, actually, I googled it. Apparently these images may help:

...then again, maybe not. Well, how about these? Today's Words are from the Say What? category. My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"The head is falling! Ahhhh--pssssh." Um. Thank you for the sound effect. I would not have understood this without it. ...I don't understand it with it, but sound effects make everything better, I've found.

Person 1: "Offense! Tears of liquid!"
Person 2: "Probably better than tears of solid..." Or tears of plasma. That would just be painful.

"Congratulations! You found a lemon!" I do not accept your congratulations and I will not, under any circumstances, use this opportunity to make lemonade.

Person 1 (defensive): "I sneezed! I'm sorry!"
Person 2: "You sneezed numbers!" Numbers made of...snot? I'd actually really like to see this happen!

Happy Panic Day! what you will with that; I'm not getting involved...Anyway, today's Words are from the category of Random Roulette Wheel! My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"I heard there were some shoulders that needed touching...?" Well, when you put it like

Person 1 ["psychotherapist voice", stroking imaginary beard]: "And how does that make you feel?"
Person 2: "Like I want to punch you in the face."
Person 1: "That's goood. Hate is a passionate emotion. We can work with passion." Whatever you say. Although the beard-stroking is a nice touch. Very professional.

"You thought she was just gonna collapse from not moving her feet?" No, I thought she was going to shrivel up into a raisin version of a strawberry, then collapse. Completely different.

"If a high-school kid can figure out he's a spy, he's obviously not a very good one!" ...That's kind of a good point.

"She's a lovable little murderer!" ...almost a bigger oxymoron than 'Happy Monday.'

Tuesday rhymes with...

...well, nothing. Tuesday doesn't really rhyme with anything. Blues day? Snooze day? No single words rhyme...oh well! Happy Mardi Gras, everyone!

...And International Women's Day!

...And, according to the.corner.chair, Women's Writing Day! Or something! Not quite sure on that one! :)

So have a lovely all-of-those-holidays. In the's Words are from the category of Say What? My comments are in italics! Enjoy! :)

"So--underwater soap opera is out, then?" Yes, but now clifftop sitcoms are in. Very in. Closely followed by skydiving and other midair dramadies. Dramodies. However you spell that. But no one cares because spelling is out.

"How many doorknobs do you have to turn to open a cantaloupe?" ...I'm gonna have to get back to you on that one.

"I always wanted a gorilla-suit guy." But, really, who doesn't?

"I don't really listen to my pants." This is probably a good thing. Now try to extend that to not smelling your shirt and you'll be A-OK!

"You put granola in your bellybutton!" Yet another piece of information I never wanted to know and now can never forget. Add it to the list, #437.

Person 1: "Steve, the mostly legless octopus."
Person 2: "Wait--I have to label his nub leg. Tentacle." Umm. Feel free.

"So are you getting covered in bits of various guts that are busting?" Every day.

Person 1: "I'm beautiful inside!"
Person 2: "Your organs are beautiful!"
Person 3: "They shine in the sunlight. Slimy." Slimy yet satisfying beautiful.
