Highlights of My Day

1. Had a great conversation with this guy
2. Continued to question the ethics of the Charmin Ultra "less is more" commercial
3. Received an e-mail from my college roommate in which he swears our other roommate’s fiancé is in the newest Girls Gone Wild movie
4. Witnessed a 7 year-old flick off his mom after she yelled at him for beating up his little brother with one of those floaty noodles at the pool
5. Watched the same 7 year-old continue to beat his brother after his mom went back to talking on her cell phone
6. Sat next to an old guy at the bar during the Cubs game who must have used the phrase "there's more than one way to skin a cat" at least 5 times
7. I considered the outcome had I looked him straight in the eye and said, "oh yeah, name one."
8. Re-lived the days when I reigned as pencil-pop champion of my middle school
9. Finally discovered Stephen Baldwin's worst movie...Fled
10. Satisfied a craving for some Bubble-Yum by taking a shot of Pepto Bismol

Blogger D.T. said... saw Fled yesterday too? Yeah, it was on TV and I was bored. Ok, actually I couldnt find the remote and I was already comfortable in my seat and I really didnt feel like getting back up...but anyways!

Yeah, I saw the movie and during that one part when Selma Heyek was pretending to be pregnant and fooled an entire security fake was that?

And then when she leaves out the door, the main guard he comes out like 3 seconds afterwards and cant see bad.

We called it pencil I loved that game, I used to pull the eraser off to cut into the opponent’s pencil, and then it became a rule to leave it on.

Just like Cinnamon tooth picks before it, the game ended up getting banned across the school

I just responded to your comment, on MY blog, and then I thought... maybe I wasn't supposed to do that, cause then how would you know. Or maybe you would know. I don't know. This is an odd way of communicating. I'm easily baffled.

Lol! Sounds exciting.

Haven't seen Fled. Wondering now... is it worth the torture to check it out?

Pencil pop ranks as the #2 game behind RPS in the top 10 ways to waste time in school.
Two people play with standard #2 pencils. One person holds their pencil horizontally, while the other player puts as much torque on their pencil and lets go.
The two take turns as holder and flicker until one of the pencils breaks.
I will attempt to post illustrations of this game tonight.

I loved Bubble-Yum, when i could chew it! Now that i'm tortured with braces, i have to take a break. I must say though, that it didn't seem to keep its flavor long, and it got kinda tough.

Anyway, thought your blog was interesting and thought i'd say so.

People and children (or little people) scare me anymore. The kids I notice are insane and need to be put on leashes. *contemplates this* I suppose that is what people thought of me when I was a child, though. But I can't say that I ever flicked off my mother to her face or beat her with a water noodle. Not that I haven't wanted to. Haven't we all?

Loved your blog! I too sit in a tiny cubuicle for 9 hours a day. The madness of the "higher ups" and the clients themselves have me contemplating the idea of lying in a fetal position under my desk. I look under my desk,and realize that I must paint my toenails, and the moment passes....

Thanks for making me laugh!!

I believe the phrase is "flipped off" not "flicked off"...

By the way, I'm an English teacher - Could you tell? All I can say is, thank god the pencil popping craze is over! I must have swept up hundreds of broken pencils over those couple of pencil-popping-crazed years. No wonder those 6th graders never had any pencils!

Don Swayze's turn in Knuckle Sandwich could edge out Baldwin's Fled for worst nepotism-related acting bit in recent history.

I haven't laughed so hard in a while! Great blog! It's great to see someone else thinks pretty much the same about their job as I do about mine! I'll come back for more.....

That's a warning ;)

I called it pencil fighting... and we actually had tournaments in our school. Some guys would "chop" at the other guys pencil by bringing down his whole arm. That was banned along with the no eraser thing.

The school eventually made us stop pencil fightin, so we had to go "underground" and do it in bathrooms and gym lockerroom between classes.

Nice blog. When I get mine movin again I'll link you!

"Flicking off" has a very different meaning this side of the pond - I *really* hope you didn't see a child do that to his mother...

i'm sorry but anyone that uses the saying 'less is more' when referring to toilet paper has obviously never tried 1 ply tp after a hardnight of drinking.

A memory from junior high: once pencil-pop has lost its allure, up the stakes with ruler-break. Those translucent brightly colored plastic rulers work quite well, especially since no one can find an old-fashioned wooden ruler anymore.

A friend of my mine developed a perfect way to win everytime. He would just act like he was gathering strenght or whatever and then would ask oppent 'Have you ever played nose break?' Then he would punch whoever he was playing in the face. After they would fall over (he punched very hard, and we were like 12 yrs old) he take the pencil and break it. No one ever wanted challenge him after that.
Your blog is great.
