This One Really Takes the Pie

I have been busy, oh so very busy. Have you all gone? Will you come back if I blog regularly?

My sister sent me a great email with mixed metaphors from an ACTUAL person that she works with. The list is incredible. It makes me happy.

I love the mixed metaphor.

Thanks Shan for making this entry easy for me. (But do know, dear readers that remain, I have a huge secret that I am currently blogging about...... it's a biggie.)

Please do not share with my name attached.

Don't jellyfish sting? I saw jellyfish once and I even worked up the courage to touch the top. It felt like jell-o. And I screamed while I did it (it's scary, ok?)

So, does Shannon just follow that guy around the WHOLE time waiting and hoping for more and more of those. Oh. My. God.

I think I'm in love.

Reminds me of the time my Mother-in-law tried to sing that song from the Sound of Music...
"Doe, a deer, a female deer.
Hay, a drop of golden sun.
Ray, a name I call myself...
...and it went on and on and on, each line more and more wrong than the one preceding it.

I laughed so hard, while trying not to laugh, trying to look out the window, trying to pretend I had something in my eye, that I think I lacerated something.

Damn, but I LOVE that stuff.

Indeed you underestimate us Shari - we're here and waiting on tenterhooks for the biggie...

That list is great - it's like those lists of corporate bullshit that get bandied about the office... (And when a slick salesman in a suit gets it wrong it's just plain wonderful!)

a big secret... um... you're moving to Australia?

That would sure be "big"

Longth. heh.
I'm going to wager a guess that the person responsible for the items in the list isn't an English speaker primarily. Just a guess.
