Let's see if I remember how to do this...

You know that scene in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" where the giant sleigh carrying an even more giant, seuss-er-sized (ha, see what I did there? made a terrible pun less than a sentence into this post? have you moved on to a better blog yet?) bag full of toys is balancing ever so precariously atop a pinpoint of a mountaintop? I'm not going anywhere with that, I was just wondering if you knew what I'm talking about, because no one ever knows what I'm talking about usually, and it's nice to feel a bit of affirmation once in a while.

Hah, no really, I AM going somewhere with that. Yes, and it's so obvious that I can't believe I'm still typing this sentence to spell it out for you and will probably click 'publish post' here in the next few minutes without erasing it but I'm rusty at this here blogging thing so allow me to get my groove back and indulge me when I point out the already pointed out obvious and say I AM THAT GIANT SLEIGH. Precariously balancing and whatnot. And any minute a wind is gonna blow me one way or the other, though in the end will it even matter which direction because then I'll at least be moving, right? Not still stuck up top and agonizing over the what ifs and possibilities and the like? And don't try extending the metaphor for me by asking me why I can't grab the reigns and choose my own path down the mountain. The wind, people - THE WIND - is coming and it will decide all. Humor me.

I just read the word "bidet" online and it took me 5 minutes of trying to figure out what on earth a bidet (BID-ett) was before a light bulb went off in my head, and I realized it's one a-them french words. Buh-DAY, I suppose. In all my 23 years I don't think I've ever seen the word spelled out before. Live and learn, folks. Live and learn.

And on yet another unrelated note, did Obama's "This is a lie," line tonight remind anyone of the exact same line said by Delores Umbridge seen here? (Start at the 6:30 mark). Come to think of it, doesn't Obama often say, "let me be perfectly clear" as well? Huh. Whoda thunk that President Barack Almighty Obama would get his talking points from a Harry Potter movie. Apparently we now have a High Inquisitor of the United States. I bet he can turn into a Lady Bug.

P.S. Hi. I'm Natalie. This is my first official post here that I didn't move from another blog ages ago. I'm really bad at updating, so, um, see you in a few months, probably.

  1. It actually made me think of when the Geauga Lake PR guy said that they had offered to give the Big Dipper to ACE at no cost and lady yelled out "That's a lie!" Except GL really did offer ACE the coaster for free, ACE just had to pay to move it (which is like a kajillion dollars), so while it was technically free, it wasn't really. So I guess it was exactly the same in that there was politics involved and that always leads to lying.
