A “Touching” Conversation

7 Dec

It’s usually my mother with whom I have strange conversations.  (Check me out!  I used “whom” correctly in a sentence!)  This afternoon, however, my sister played the role of the touched person in the conversation.  As I do on most days, I called her on my way home from work.  Today the conversation turned to something a little bit more topical (but not like a topical cream, I don’t need that):

  • Me: Did you hear Elizabeth Edwards died?
  • Sister: She did?  That’s terrible!  Very sad!  I had no idea.
  • Me: Yeah, they just released the news about 15 minutes ago.
  • Sister: Ugh, awful.  What happened?
  • Me: Well, apparently the Cancer came back and the doctors told her there was nothing they could do.  They apparently had given her weeks to live, but I guess it took her faster than they thought.  Very sad.
  • Sister:  Terrible.  She was a good actress.
  • Me: What?
  • Sister:  I said she was a good actress.
  • Me:  What are you talking about?
  • Sister:  Katherine Hepburn was good actress.
  • Me:  Not Katherine Hepburn!!  I said ELIZABETH EDWARDS!
  • Sister:  OH!!  Oh, I totally thought you said Katherine Hepburn!  And wait, didn’t she die like 20 years ago?
  • Me:  Uh, yeah, she died a long time ago.  Way to listen!
  • Sister:  Sorry!  I didn’t hear you!
  • Me:  Fine, whatever.  Anyway, in other news, I have two pimples.
  • Sister:  You do??
  • Me: Yes, I sure do.  I’m very excited about it.
  • Sister:  When did you get those?
  • Me:  This morning.
  • Sister:  You know, they’re not allowed off leash in the state of Maryland.
  • Me:  What?
  • Sister:  Yeah, they have to be on leash at all times.
  • Me:  No, I heard you, but I don’t know what you’re talking about.
  • Sister:  Pit bulls are dangerous, they have to be on leash. You did say “pit bulls” didn’t you?
  • Me: Uh, no, I said pimples.
  • Sister:  Oh, I was wondering why you would get a pit bull!

Just the Tip Tuesday (12/07/10)

7 Dec

I know what you were thinking – you totally thought I was going to go another week without posting a JTT thereby robbing you of the delicious eye candy you have come to love.  Well, I’m pleased to tell you, you’re wrong.  And also, how dare you??  How dare you just assume there was going to be no JTT?  Really, I mean really!

Blah, blah, anyway…

You know sometimes when you turn on the radio it seems like the stations play one of four artists?  Lately it seems Pink, Katy Perry, Taio Cruz, and Usher are ruling the airwaves.  I freaking hate Katy Perry’s “Firework.”  HATE IT!  It has to be one of the stupidest songs of all times.  Who the hell starts a song with the line, “Have you ever felt like a plastic bag.”  What the hell is that about??  Who feels like a plastic bag EVER?  Such people should be immediately arrested, beaten with their own stupidity.

And don’t get me started on that horrible Taio Cruz song!  Every time I hear a cord from that song I immediately want to throw my hands up in the air, ball them into fists, and bring them down on his face.  Awful song.  Awful.

Usher, on the other hand, can do no wrong.  With a body like this:

And a groove like this:

you can’t go wrong!  Me likey the Usher!!
