Jack the Ripper

Ok, so my post isn't really going to be about Jack the Ripper. I try to come up with fun titles that semi-match my question. And the ? is about ripping your pants. So Jack the Ripper is all I could think of. And now I had to waste my and your precious time by explaining that. Ah well. (The movie poster is for a great Jack the Ripper movie. You gotta see it. Since it is about J the R, it is very gory. Just a little warning there.)

So, moving on.

You're out to lunch with your coworkers. Not your buddy coworkers. The higher up kind that you really want to impress. You sit down... You hear and feel a RIP! Oh crap! Did you just rip your pants? To check, when no one is looking, you slip your hand under your bottom and yup... there's a rip there. It's a good sized one too. Oh crap! Inside your head, you think every curse word you know... and invent some too. (Yes, I said 'bottom' and not butt. I guess it's a teacher thing)

Now, luckily the meal just began, so you have time to think out a plan of what to do. The waitress comes, you order a water and a salad (You want to impress your coworkers by having them think you're a very health-conscious person... Very mature). The waitress comes back and goes to hand you the water. As you reach for it, you feel another RIP! Oh crap! The rip just got bigger! You try to act cool. You gotta figure out a course of action.

Do you:

  1. All stealth-like text message your sister saying to call you in about 20 minutes. Perfect timing, she calls you just as everyone is getting up to go. Tell everyone it's a business call, that they should go on, and you'll take a taxi back to work. Then run to the nearest Walmart and buy a quick pair of pants that look similar to the ones you just ripped.
  2. When it's time to leave, tell everyone to go ahead while you pay the check. This way you'll stay behind them the whole time, and so not showing them your holey bottom. Paying the $100 is a small price to pay. Besides, you'd also be impressing them with your generosity. Spend the rest of the day carefully manuvering around the office so as to not expose that bottom.
  3. Feign illness. That chicken in your salad must have been under-cooked. Food poisening... Works every time! And hey- maybe you can even take the next day off work too! Party hardy!
  4. Just tell them... It's a risk, but maybe they'd get a kick out of it. You could turn into the cool kid!

By the by... Did anyone every figure out who Jack the Ripper was? Or is it still a mystery?

I Can Hear!

Well, hello blogger friends.

I'm not sure if you noticed, but I've been gone for 3 or 4 weeks. Becky's the one who's been running things. I've been a bit depressed. Dunno why, just have been. But I'm back now. Let's hope it sticks!

So, I can hear! Woot! For the past 3 weeks, I haven't been able to hear out of my left ear. Or more like, it was really muffled. Put your hand over your ear- you can hear, but not really. That's how it was like.

So I just got back from the Dr's office. Here it was major ear wax blockage. He flushed out both my ears... and I can hear! This is going to take some getting used to. Three cheers for hearing!

So the question:

If you had to lose one of your 5 senses, which would you give up? For those who didn't make it through Kindergarten, the 5 senses are:

  1. Sight
  2. Hearing
  3. Touch
  4. Taste
  5. Smell
Or conversely, which would you hate losing? For those who already lost a sense, would you trade it for another?

(I know it's not Easter time yet... But other than that, I thought the cartoon fits!)

what flavor are you?

Watching TV today, i saw a commercial for coffee-mate creamers. they are trying to come out w/ a new flavor.
[i saw this commercial a few months ago... i might even have blogged about it. i'm not sure. but here it is regardless...]

so i visited the website and looked at the new coffee creamer ideas. here are the options:

-vanilla chai spice
-coconut creme
-chocolate orange truffle
-tres leches

to me, most of those sound disgusting... EXCEPT the chai. i think its an amazing idea to make a chai creamer for coffee. i would totally use it.

so, which would you pick? tell us... and then tell them, by submitting your own answer. While you're there, you can check out other cool things:

-Find your perfect drink. Just tell them the time, weather, your mood, and a few other things, and it will give you your perfect match. For me, it was: heavenly hazlenut hot chocolate. YUMMY! it gave me a recipe for it. i may just make it.
-Find other great recipes too. There are different coffee/cappuccino/latte ideas, smoothies and frappaccinos, chai tea, and even little coffee cakes and such.

some stupid stuff

What is the stupidest thing you've ever done?

often time people ask about the most embarrassing... but this time, lets ask about the studidest. Of course, when you do something stupid it IS embarrassing, though in a different way...

example: my most embarrassing momment is probably when i was out bowling with some friends, stepped over the "line," and ended up slipping on the waxy lane and fell down. Yeah, all the old men who were bowling pros just laughed at me. Totally embarrassing...

The studidest thing i did, no one actually knew about (unless i told them) so it wasnt really embarrassing at the time. but oh it was so stupid...
a friend was over and we ordered Pizza. My hubby had left cash out on the counter for me... there were two tens. when the guy came with the pizzas, i felt like being generous. I handed him both bills and and said: "you can keep the change." He looked at the money, looked at me, made a strange face, then gave me the pizza and left. Then, my friend and i proceeded to have a lovely time together.

So, hubby comes home after work and says: where's the rest of the money? I said: "i told him he could keep the change." he said: "Becky, there were two twenties."

i dropped to the ground and beat my head against the wall. HOW COULD I BE SO STUPID! i thought that they were two ten dollar bills; but they were two twenty dollar bills. I GAVE THE GUY FORTY BUCKS!

so so so so stupid
so, whats the studidest thing you ever did? please share so that i dont feel quite so studid.

You old fart!

Well, we gathered some ideas for new blog posts. (and you can still share them under the previous post.)

sdit, i was originally liking your idea about dreams, but then realized that we did that before. you can check it out to see some of the ODD answers that were given.

BUT, we'll go with this one: share your craziest fart story. Here's mine:

[this is so embarrassing.] When i was a youngin', only in 4th grade, i was with my classmates in Music Class. the teacher had to step out for the momment, but told us to sit quietly. We were all seated cross-legged on the floor. All of a sudden, i farted. I couldnt keep it in. And it was one of those LOUD farts. i tried acting nonchallant. One of the guys [whom i had a huge crush on] said: "becky farted!" i tried pretending like it wasnt me, but to no avail.

... sigh. Ah well.

Now that i'm a mommy, i dont have to worry about farting in public. Because if its stinky and someone's nearby, i can just say: "oh erica! did you just dirty your diaper?" hahaha-- way to pass the blame!
