Words I Hate

  • Blouse. Also "slacks." If you ever see me wearing a "blouse" and "slacks," you can smack me upside the head.
  • Turducken. Just for the first four letters alone.
  • Teen, Teenager. Sounds dumb to me for some reason.
  • Bong. Some stoner must have made that one up.
  • Girlfriend in reference to a female friend. It's such one-sided terminology: you'd never say "I went out with my boyfriends," unless, I suppose, you had a small male harem.

YAY! Someone else who thinks the word 'slacks' was made for the 70's and should've stayed there!

Friday, our new neighbor saw D. and me at the library. I can see we're going to be GREAT friends. She called out, "Hey, girlfriend! Hey, boyfriend!"

Issues.

That's very scary. VERY scary.

My friend Mark and his family had a turducken last weekend. They were so excited it was scary.

I just want to point out, belatedly, that this post was not to decry the turducken, as Rob's aunt cooked one for Chinese New Year a couple of years ago and it was quite tasty.

However, I had the misfortune to see TV footage of John Madden sawing a (cooked) turducken open with the side of his bare hand and stuffing some into his mouth, and that was kind of a turnoff.

May I just interject that John Madden is kind of a turn off...
