Adding to the english language

22 May 2009

Do you ever find everyday language so boring that you feel the need to invent your own words and start using them on a regular basis? My new words are wacktastic and wackadoo. Although I can't take complete credit for wackadoo. I used to say that a lot and had no idea where it came from. Then I figured out that I subconsciously picked it up from Ratatouille. I also heard that guy from Project Runway with the blue hair who referred to himself in the third person say wackadoodle.

Or do you start using another language in place of English? Instead of yes, I say sí. It just seems to require less effort. It's funny when the people around you start doing it too. I'm such a trendsetter. LOL

On a random note who else can't wait for Project Runway to return?

OMG look at this DIY Saarinen Table posted on Apartment Therapy yesterday. Instructions can be found here. How clever! And so much cheaper than the original. If you are looking for the speaker stands, check ebay. They are from the Bose 901 series.

The Target piggy banks are back! I have been wanting one of these since last year, when I failed to buy it immediately and by the time I went back for it, it was gone. They come in copper and chrome and look much better in person. There are even little baby piggy banks, and elephants if pigs aren't your thing. At $14.99 who can resist. I ended up buying both.

Best cereal ever!

Rant: Smokers

04 May 2009

I have nothing against people who smoke. That is their choice. But at the same time I have never smoked, can't stand the smell and would prefer not to be subjected to it. We live on the top floor of an apartment building. Our downstairs neighbors are smokers. They sit in their apartment and puff away with their door open and a fan pointed to blow the smoke outside. Then when we open our sliding door the smoke wafts up and into our apartment. Opening the door is the only way for us to get any outside air in here and I would prefer that it didn't smell like cigarettes. Nasty. Why are you blowing the smoky air outside? You like the smoke right? Close the door. Enjoy the smell, revel in it. Just keep it in your apartment. Thanks.
