Some things that made me smile this week: The square butts Burger King commercial (Sir-Mix-Alot is actually in the commercial).
I like square butts and I cannot lie
Squid and Sea Star can’t deny
When a sponge walks in, four corners and his pen
Like he got phone book implants, the crowd shouts
All the ladies stare
Dang those pants are square!
Swimming through the seaweed tangle
Is a butt with sharp right angles
Now Sponge Bob, I wanna get witch-ya
‘Cuz you’re making me rich-ah
Underwater, we keep it grungy
‘Cuz everybody knows that ‘He so spongey!’
Something i struggled with this week: Fought with the internet connection on my Mac for most of the week. Finally got it to work yesterday, although i still do not understand what was wrong. So of course if it reappears i’ll be stuck again.
Something i learned this week: How to cook turnips. I’m not sure i’ve ever eaten a turnip before, actually, but now i know how to cook them. And that i like them.
Something from the bridge table: Don’t balance when the opponents have stopped in 2NT and you have Qx of partner’s 5+ card suit and he’s on lead.
Some things i am doing towards my goals: Soon i will be able to cross off ‘learn JSL’.
Something i am reading: GodSlayer, by Jacqueline Carey
Something happening around the house: Baseball, laundry, and cooking. What else is there?
Something i am thinking: Was anyone, particularly parents, offended by the Burger King square butts commercial? I thought it was hilarious, but it is sending a pretty strange message.
Something i am hoping: I hope i can stop biting my nails. I haven’t tried to stop for several years now, but i’m giving it another go.
Something i am looking forward to next week: Finishing up a project at work.
Something captured: I took a vacation day Friday, and Lance suggested we go get pedicures and manicures in the middle of the afternoon. It was the best thing ever!
