Your boyfriend isn’t a THEY or THEM! / You can’t be technically 12 for anything!

May 17, 2017

From Reddit on March 7, 2017: No, you should not encourage your BOYFRIEND in HIS using “they / them” pronouns! It’s HE and HIM and HIS! I agree with Undoomed on this one. You are NOT that much of a special snowflake! Also, WTF is “eye gaze”? Just say “he looks at me for a […]

Purple nightmare dragon, Gori Julian, mistaking soy sauce for pancake syrup

May 16, 2017

From Krista: Purple nightmare dragon! From Julie: Gori Julian? That’s not a nickname for some long Eastern European name… From Wesley: I made a huge mistake this morning! While making breakfast, I thought the Kikkoman soy sauce was the Mrs. Butterworth’s Original pancake syrup!

Floppy disks, Salsitas chips, no staying longer, good meatloaf, and nephew time!

May 15, 2017

I had to go out in the torrential rain (just managing to get a 401 AND a Waterfront train) for my THIRD family function (Mother’s Day / Mom’s birthday) in a calendar week: WAY TOO MUCH FRIGGIN’ FAMILY TIME! So of course I had to have coffee at 3:15 before going out at 4:30 to […]

I just got another blue screen of death, which took me twelve minutes to fully recover from! From Julie: Meleeza?! Is that supposed to be MELISSA?! Here’s the sign for the interpretive centre in Head Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, Alberta! My ex-friend Fiann apparently bought some False Elephant Snout in a can from Golden Brand…

Time spent on her knees?! / Cool three-headed red dragon! / Water dragon!

May 14, 2017

From Reddit: Here’s a WTF Mother’s Day 2016 church sign from the First Baptist Church in Laingsburg, Michigan! The best gift a mother can give is time spent on her knees. Three-headed red dragon! Water dragon!

Crazy cat lady! / No eschewing the Oxford comma! / Mary had a little lamb!

May 14, 2017

Since I was up at 7 AM, it was COFFEE TIME! From Janina: Crazy cat lady action figure! Whenever a publisher’s style guidelines eschew use of the Oxford comma, I can only assume that this results from a managerial decision to save money by cutting back on ink, because no reasonable editor would make this […]
