Good Things...

I have a new favorite blog...

http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/2008/06/

That's right, stuff white people like. And if you say, "Hey, that's Racist," just go take a look at the page. It actually makes fun of the silly things we do. My favorite examples of what White People Like are Coffee, Being Offended, girls with bangs, Outdoor Performance Clothes, Unpaid Internships, Expensive Sandwiches, Asian girls, Asian Fusion food, Farmer's Markets and Religions their parents didn't belong to. My all-time favorite stuff white people like, and this one literally made me fall of my chair laughing, is comparing people to Hitler. Oh yes, it is one that I have definitely been guilty of myself. I mean, you can compare someone to the devil or Antichrist, but with religious affiliations set aside, everyone knows who Hitler was and that he was a very bad bad bad man. Too funny... I'll definitely be buying this book at the next trip to Borders and/or Barnes and Noble.

In other randomness today, I was trying to think of all the strange words that my brain has created and that I have added to my daily, normal vocab. It's apparently been something I've been doing for years. My friend Candace in High School used to make fun of me all the time. Then again, I used to call her, "Candidas," and that derived from me calling her "canned peaches." Unfortunately, I didn't realize Candidas is the bacteria that causes yeast infections.... so I'm sure when I yelled it out across the mall to get her attention, some people turned their heads. I'm guessing "yeast infection" isn't the best pet name to give to one of your best friends? Other words.... "deffie" in place of, "definitely." This is literally one that just popped into my head, probably from over-use of it's predecessor, I just decided to shorten the word. "Sweriously..." "Are you sweriously going to wear that in public?" Now this one I can tell you where I got it from. A while back, there used to be a show called "El Capitan," and one of the characters used to randomly insert the letter "W" into her words while speaking. She thought it was a stand-out trait, turned out it was annoying. But seriously, "Swerious" is in my vocab to stay. There's always the word "Tubbie" that my scrap pal Tracey had to ask me what that was... it's taking a bathtub, for those of you who DON'T know... lol! I'm sure that one came from just taking the word "tub" and then trying to make it sound cutesie for my kids. "Don't you want to take a tubbie-wubbie in the bathy-boo?" No, I really don't talk like that. In fact, I hate people that talk to babies like that. I also have coined the phrase, "Let's G.I. Joe" as in "G-O, Go..." That's one I have no idea where it came from, but it's a "regular" in my vocabulary.

I'm sure I have more, but I wanted to ask, do you make up words or saying that make sense in YOUR head but other people look at you like you're nuts for saying them? Let me know! Have a SUPER HAPPY Thursday!

Yeah, um... the first time you said you were giving your girls a "tubbie," I thought they were in trouble (like a time out or something!)

I'm sure that I have my own words for things... my pet name for those I love is "Sweetheart..." that works for Jeff and the kids... the only time it DIDN'T work was the time I was cheering for Chris from the stands and I yelled (at the top of my lungs as any former cheerleader would do), "Great Job, SWEETHEART!!" Chris didn't talk to me the whole way home... I haven't done that again...

My sister and I call each other "Dude"... we have drawn some weird looks from passerbys for that one... they must not have been from California or the 80's... now I hear my sister's kids calling each other, "Dude..." cracks me up!! I'll have to think of a good one and come back... :-)

HAHA! You crack me up! I love stopping by your bloggy-blog! :o] My sister and I grew up saying alot of words by just saying the 1st syllable. For example..."mmm, that dinner was DELISH" (in replace of delicious!).
Well our hip, new language turned for the worse when we were in the middle of Youth Bible Study and I asked somebody what COUNTRY they were from...so it came out as "CUN*". My face turned bright red and my sister was the only one rolling on the floor, laughing!!! I almost cried! :o]

Mu hubby and I make up words all the time! Of course we are pretty goofy! Most of the words don't stick but we do have a couple we use all the time. I can't share because they are personal/pet name type words! Love your words though, especially the GI Joe thing! LOL!
