Out of the Blue

I'm waiting on the honey-do men this morning, as MrsBlue found the handymen to look at the gutter problems we've been having. There's a tree growing into one corner of the gutters, and even worse, one of the downspouts has separated, and is gushing water. It's fairly shocking that we haven't had a basement flood with the gutters in that shape and all the rain we've been having lately, so we're lucky this hasn't been a huge problem already.

It has been in 3 stories in the last 3 days. I heard it non stop in multiplayer during Portal 2. It is also the mod version of some games now. It is now the preorder name of new games. It is stupid. It needs to stop.

Actually, shortly after I typed that, I saw a Miller Lite commercial on Hulu with some blondes saying it every other word. It was clearly intended to be annoying and it definitely was.

WTF is going on with the word "epic"? It is everywhere. Is it some sort of internet thing that I missed? Holy cripes is it annoying! Did the idiots on Glee say the word or something? I guess I would be super upset if the world wasn't going to end in an hour or so....

Its been a popular internet word for years now, I'd say it's used tongue in cheek, but I think the days of it being something clever are long gone. Its just a tired beaten horse, which is probably why I've heard the media and entertainment industry using it now. Nothing they like more than taking something that's become completely banal, and then driving it into the ground some more.

It's just a word... Why do people say amazing, awesome, great, or excellent.

"I'm sick of everyone saying awesome! Does that really inspire awe, are you awed by that?!"

My personal overused phrase is "pretty fucking ridiculous". Use it for both good and bad things.

Corncobs were pretty standard for ass wiping. I know that my grandparents used them growing up, and the phone book until it runs out of pages.

Really?
Was it a patriotic thing back then for Mac Arthur?

Corncobs!
Who the fark is thinking ... clean my arse? clean my arse?.....Corncob!
Shells for that matter or coconut.
I think this article says more about the author than the subject.

Holy shit maybe the rapture really is at hand!!!

Randy Savage is dead!!!.

Bleh! I was never that much into wrestling but I always loved the Macho Man! Stupid rapture may as well come tomorrow in that case, there's naught worth living for anymore.

Edit: My buddy sez..." &#8206;"Macho Man didn't die, he killed himself to go talk some sense into God about this whole Judgment Day thing. And by "talk some sense" I mean "drop some elbows."

PPS: If Judgement Day is waved off tomorrow it will be because of Randy. So he will be our new Chuck Norris!

Well, I wasn't expecting a sort of Spanish Inquisition.

Heh, I almost though of renting a trumpet and running around blowing it long and lound all over town to freak people out thinking Gabriel was sounding the rapture. Haha!

Well there's enough rain for it, that's for sure. I think I saw an Ark float by.

What surprised me though was, I actually saw a Billboard about this yesterday when I had to drive to a nearby city.

A billboard. About the end of days on 21-May.
