Well howdy my gingernsnaps. Miracle Monday to ya'll. (I'm only pretending to be Southern.) (and no Orlando, Florida does not count as part of The South)
In the news, a Maryland thief had been making a habit of charging up his cellphone at houses while he was burglarizing him. But the most recent burglary was bungled when the homeowner came home in mid-burglarization (I just made that word up) and the thief fled... leaving his cellphone behind. And the police traced the phone back to the thief and arrested him.
Seriously, does the kid not have access to electricity? Is he Amish or something? Why is he charging his cellphone at houses he burglarizes? Can't he just hang out at a Starbucks or something and plug it in?
Show of hands... who watched the Super Bowl yesterday? Yeah me neither. But thanks to the internets, I was able to see all the commercials online, including this new promo for Pirates of the Caribbean 4. There's no Bloom, but you know I'm gonna watch it.
And while there were some pretty good Super Bowl commercials this year, none of them (in my opinion) top my current favorite commercial...
Jaime Pressley was arrested for Driving Drunk. She failed a field sobriety test and her blood alcohol level was nearly 3 times the legal limit, but she has plead NOT GUILTY to driving under the influence. Uh, Jaime... were you under the influence when you pled not guilty? Me thinks so.
And the sound of hearts are breaking everywhere as news spread that James Marsters (AKA "Spike" from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) had a secret wedding last month to his longtime girlfriend. I'm
sobbing so happy for them. If my heart could beat it would break my chest. (10 points if you know what I'm talking about) *sigh* Spike.
And now it's time for... DAMN YOU AUTOCORRECT!!!
If you read "The Iron King", "The Iron Daughter", or "The Iron Queen" by Julie Kagawa, you'd get why the autocorrect fail is so funny in relation to the name of the person at the top of the text.
And that's all I have for you today. Start the week off right by slipping the word "desideratum" into a sentence. Gold stars for Picksee, Gina and Graceling for Friday's assignment. And speaking of words, here is something you should know...
Now that it's officially a word (not that that has stopped me before), I can now use it correctly in a sentence. Here I go: "My evil sister-in-law, who hates me for no apparent reason since I've never done anything to her, unfriended me on Facebook."
