Friday Fragments?

Finally, Friday is here. It's been a long week especially since I only worked two days last week (Monday and Friday) because I was sick. The work week seems so much longer when you have to work all five days. Please head over to Mrs. Fours page to read her Friday Fragments and link up with other bloggers who participate in this fine event!

| I titled this edition of FF the way I did because I like pig latin. I remember in high school a friend wrote me a note in all pig latin. It was awesome. Plus, there was just something about getting a note in class or passed to me in the hall way...even if none of the information was important which in high school that information was ALWAYS important! :)

| When I was sick last week, I went to the doctor and they told me I had all the beginning stages/symptoms of H1N1 but luckily we were able to get a handle on it before it went full blown. I like to think that I had piglet flu...the baby version of swine flu.

| I really like listening to Pandora while I'm at work. It makes my monotonous day a little more interesting. Especially since I am apparently not good at grouping together appropriate music...for instance I have a Dave Matthews channel and while you are supposed to put "like" musicians in the station mine consists of everyone from Jack Johnson to Enya to the Dixie Chicks. And since the Dixie Chicks are thrown into that mix it means that other country music besides the DC's filters through my station. Which causes me to have to give out several thumbs downs! I like country music but I can only tolerate so much at a time.

| I recently was at the video store and when I walked up to the counter this conversation was occuring between two employees:

Female Employee: What do you mean it's not in American?!

Male Employee: It is in another language but the words on the screen are in American.

Female Employee: Well, I was about to say we have no need carrying movies that aren't in American.
I mean why wouldn't a movie be in American????? And it's just weird that someone would want to read words on the screen during a movie, what's the point in that?!

I stood at that counter screaming in my head....DON'T YOU MEAN ENGLISH NOT AMERICAN?! AND THOSE WORDS ON THE SCREEN ARE CALLED SUBTITLES! Everytime she said American I think my eye twitched.

I have to go get fitted for a bridesmaid's dress on Sunday. I am not looking forward to it. I can't wait to see the bride but I am not ready to have to try on a dress and see what size I am was hard enough last May but I'm fairly certain I've gained more weight since then. Dread....completely and utterly dreading squeezing my fat butt in a dress. Especially when her other bridesmaids are skinny.... This would motivate most but if anything it makes me want to eat more ice cream.

I need to learn to keep my mouth shut. A friend of mine hasn't returned my calls the majority of the week because of a comment I made that I now wish I hadn't. All I said was, I don't see why he(her fiancee) pursued the issue if what W(her son) was doing wasn't against the rules in the first place. It was like he was setting him up to do something wrong and get in trouble. I should have just kept my opinions to myself about the issue. Or at least I think that's why she hasn't called me back.

| I have been hungry ALL. THE. TIME. lately. It's annoying.

| Thanks to everyone who wished me well on my test results. I had to reschedule my follow up test because of female issues that can't be present during said test. So now I have to wait until November, which I'm ok with. Avoidance of bad news is ok with me plus this will give me ample more time to think positively about a better outcome than is predicted. Regardless, your well wishes and thoughts mean a lot to me.

| And because I love you guys I'm doing TWO Mitch Hedberg quotes this week!
  • "See, I write jokes for a living, man. I sit in my hotel at night and think of something that's funny and then I go get a pen and write 'em down. Or if the pen's too far away, I have to convince myself that what I thought of ain't funny."
  • "I wrote a letter to my dad. I was gonna write, "I really enjoy being here," but I accidentally wrote "rarely" instead of "really". But I wanted to use it, I didn't want to cross it out, so I wrote, "I rarely drive steamboats, Dad -- there's a lot of shit you don't know about me. Quit trying to act like I'm a steamboat operator. I know this letter took a harsh turn right away...Hello Dad." "


  1. Bwahahahahha, the funniest thing about this is that last quote. I don't know why, but that one? Kills me. :)

  2. That's one of my favorite quotes too Kori! I just love Mitch!

  3. Piglet flu! I'm pretty sure I snorted out loud at my desk! Funny!

    I'm right there with ya on bridesmaid dresses. My sister is already talking about getting engaged...and I am going to be the "matron" of honor. Really, I feel like I'm gonna be the "whale" of honor. Seriously.

    I haven't heard anyone speak pig latin in like forty forevers!!

    Iway asway orturedtay inway elementaryway oolschay ybay idskay owhay okespay igpay atinlay, ecausebay Iway ouldn'tcay etgay ethay anghay ofway it...untilway iddlemay oolschay. enThay Iway ickedkay assway ithway itway!

    Have a great weekend!!

  4. That video store story had me shaking my head. Sometimes I really worry about America.

    I'm with you on the bridesmaid thing. I was the biggest bridesmaid in a wedding once, and while I wasn't at my heaviest, it was definitely when I felt heaviest.

    Piglet flu! if you had stomach issues it would be Piglet and Pooh flu! ... can you tell I need a weekend?

  5. Piglet flu made me laugh out loud. I hope you're feeling better now.

    Now, not to defend the video store lady because she does sound kinda dumb... but I've taken to calling it "American" too... because that language that they're speaking in the UK? Not the same language that I speak *L* It's funny because most people learn British English here and sometimes I'm really just as lost as I'd be if they were speaking Dutch to me!

  6. I speak Spanish and am Mexican. I was asked at a wedding once if I spoke Mexican and I answered, "Do you speak American or English?"

    I glad you only had the piglet flu.

  7. I'm shaking my head over the video convo, too - American vs. English vs. clueless. :)

    HAHAHA! I was introducing Pig Latin to the Princess Nagger the other day. I'm sure I'm going to regret it. ;)

    I'm glad you only had the Piglet flu... ;)

    I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed for your test results...hope everything turns out OK.

    I LOVE that last quote!! Hilarious!!

    Happy FF! :)

  8. OMG on the "It's in American"....I despise ignorance.

  9. I'm so sorry you were ill this week, but you had a funny take on it! Love the piglet flu comment :)

    I speak American real good and don't like it none when the words cover over the pretty pitchers. But I seen it once. (I kid, but I totally get it)

    I whined about this a few weeks back that because of a medication change I've gained 25 pounds in the past two months. Just in time for my class reunion! You'll look gorgeous in your dress and be the belle of the bridesmaids :) It's all the way you look at it!

    Kristin - The Goat

  10. Love your title :) Sorry you were under the weather this week :(

    I've seen some pretty good movies with subtitles, but I still avoid them, because nowadays they are tough to watch (and play on the computer at the same time.

    I'm all for avoidance of test results, haha. I'm sure it's nothing.

    That's a bummer about your friend being hurt by your comment. I hate when you can't take that stuff back...
