I am occasionally… well… silly? And I don’t mind saying so, yes I am sure there are more pertinent words. Sometimes my mind doesn’t make word associations, or I can’t think of the word that I want. Luckily I work and live in places where I can look things up constantly. In fact, that is about 50% of my job.
So, I was out with family last night after my dad’s choir performance and the boys were talking about Starcraft. That is a foreign language to me (I seriously didn’t know most of the nouns and verbs they were using). My sister and I just found other things to talk about, between throwing napkins at them, until I brought up the subject of BFD. I was explaining to her about why I called the place where my son lives that acronym and she said “yeah, or you could mean BFD.” I was lost, and she explained and I was flabbergasted.
You all probably thought of that right away and thought “she sure is going a long way to make this stuff up.” But really, honestly in all the years I’ve been blogging never thought of Big F*ing Deal. Never did. Until now. My reference is ruined. I will have to think of a new moniker. Any ideas? Something that won’t give the actual place away?
What am I reading? Well, my sound recording of the newest Bloody Jack book has let me down. Somehow it ended at the end of chapter 53 (yes, there are a lot of chapters) and it wasn’t over yet. I have to find out what happened to my missing chapters. However, I have heard enough to be cautionary to younger readers. These books get a bit promiscuous. This one has a whole ship of prostitutes and the captain has some interesting views. I still love it, but will be more careful about recommending the series to young readers.
Nothing to Envy is still holding my interest. It takes me longer to read real adult books, but I am 2/3′s of the way through, so will have a report for you soon.
I am rewatching rab ne bana di Jodi. It is the first real bollywood movie I saw after Slumdog Millionaire. I forgot how much I liked it. The dream dance sequence is sublime. Forgive the ad.
