Dutchess of Doody

Hey, I'm back! Just like I promised. I still am not any clearer on the ending of Lost, but I don't think taking any more days off will change that. If you understand it, please enlighten me in the comments. Now, on to the weather...

The weather in Arab (prounouced Ay-rab), Alabama is a sunny 81 degrees today. Traffic on the 405 is bumper to bumper, so you have plenty of time to think of silly ways to pronounce cities like Cairo (kay-ro) and Versailles (ver-sales). I'm looking at you, Georgia.

In the news, studies show that women who are under extreme emotional distress are more likely to give birth to girls than boys.

Uh, mother? Do you need to tell me anything about your emotional state when I was conceived? Oh wait... never mind. I do NOT want to know about when I was conceived. *shudder*

Let's move on. Quickly. Hey, do you hear that sound? It's the sound of a million hearts breaking after James Marsters, AKA Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer got engaged over the weekend.

Spike... er... James, do all us women a favor and don't be like that Angel dude. #TeamSpike

In other news, the Dutchess of York Sarah Ferguson got caught in a sting, trying to sell access to her ex-husband Prince Andrew to a "businessman" that was actually a reporter for News of The World. She offered to introduce this businessman to Prince Andrew for 500,000 pounds.

Uh, if anyone would like to meet Mr. Ginger, I'd gladly accept far less than 500,000 pounds. #justsaying

Hey, WTF!!!

Ok, what kind of crazy @ss version of Brokeback Mountain is this? I mean, you two make a lovely pair. Best of luck to you. And sir, please pull your shirt down over that hairy *gag* belly. kthxbai

And that's all I have time for today. Going to ignore the children and lock myself in a room, so I can ruminate over Lost and see if I can figure out why Daniel Faraday has an American accent when his father is British and his mother is Irish. But before I go, I leave you with this...

The #1 most shoplifted book of all time? THE BIBLE.

-OMG Facts

Hmmm... I wonder what happens when they get to Exodus 20:15. ("Thou shall not steal")



  1. It is true, we do say "Ay-rab". But in my defense, I heard it growing up and never knew better until I was old enough to know "Arab" was pronounced differently ;)

    Wait. Marsters is FORTY SEVEN? Damn. I had no idea.

  2. I know, I can't believe JM is that old either! While in college (FSU baby) we'd drive to Georgia and laugh when we heard how they pronounced their cities. I mean, we laughed WITH the Georgians. Ok, we laughed at them. *hangs head*

  3. I was gonna (yes I just said gonna) say Cairo actually sounds a little more like kay-row but decided instead to say HEY!! Georgia Girl here! Ok so I also lived in Lousiana, Alabama, and Washington- BUT born and bred, tried and true Georgia Girl- not really sure what born and bred means exactly but it is one of those things southerns like to say.

  4. just read this post... as always, you have me laughing!
    I will admit I live in KY. I was born n' raised in Lexington which is right next to Versailes (Ver-Sales) and now I live in far Western KY, which puts me about 30 minutes from Cairo, IL (Kay-Row) and YES, we do pronounce them that way :-)
