here's what i came up with while staring off into space and humming the mario brothers theme song in my head at work today:

the word “palindrome” is not, itself, a palindrome.

“homonym” does not have a homonym

“antonym” has no opposite.

“phonetically” cannot be spelled phonetically.

“mnemonic device” is actually not anything’s mnemonic device.

“onomatopoeia” is not, itself, an onomatopoeia.

finally, there is no other way of saying “synonym”.



My head feels kind of squishy. Like somewhere inside of my skull, I broke something I really needed and I don't know what!

Isn't the opposite of "antonym" "synonym"?

Nope.

"The opposite meaning" is not the opposite of "Nearly the same meaning" to quote from a real, live dictionary.

Explicating why synonym is not the opposite of antonym:

the opposite of "similar-meaning" is "nothing in common whatsoever" which is *not* opposite. opposition requires a relationship to the former, like colors dripping in and out of negative film and photograph. antonymous meaning requires a relationship to the definition of the original. Thus, there is some similarity.

I need more scotch to dull the pain. Also, I totally blogged this. This is blog-worthy.

The only reason you don't think they're spice is because you've never ground them through a pepper grinder to season your food.

Now my head feels kind of squishy. Maybe I'm just tired.

Here's one - why are there interstates in Hawaii?

What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

if you choke a smurf, what color does it turn?

and my favorite:

If a tree falls in the forest, and lands on a mime, does anyone care?

i need to go to sleep. like now

What do they call elevators when they're going down? What do they call escalators when they're going DOWN?

They call it a Lift in the UK, but what do they call it when it is putting down?

Yesterday, whilst eating greek food.. I was struck by the muse of Pat Benatar.


I need a Gyro!
I need a Gyro in the middle of the night
Well it's gotta have beef
and it's gotta have lamb
and a sauce that is spicy and light!

I need Gyro!

Sometimes I sit back and wish I knew all about English language and how to use it correctly.

Most times I'm glad I don't.

We read that story in school, or something involving Hannah is a palindrome.

P.S. Piper was almost a Hannah. It was the number 2 pick if Mr. tjwriter wouldn't let me have Piper.

Isn't posting something that broke your brain akin to tripping over a log and then tossing the log in front of a group of your friends just to see what will happen? And maybe crossing your fingers and cackling madly a bit?

I applaud your kickass attitude.

Today, I told a middle-aged woman I work with in a blatantly un-sexual-harassment way that she looked lovely today and it just about cost me my job.

Lady FLIPPED OUT because I embarassed her.

"You look lovely today..."

"How >dare< you embarass me like that! Oh... My... God... I am going to talk to your supervisor this second!"

True story.

Yup, brain still broken.

Maybe this is like that movie, "The Ring". Like anyone who reads this post has seven days left before their brain explodes?

I have decided that scotch is better than women, and - sometimes - better than the English language.

It certainly goes down smoother, and more often.

Also, when it runs dry, you can always buy a new bottle. When a woman runs dry, you still have to pay alimony.
