Tonight we got our Graze boxes in the mail, and we were discussing the contents and whether to keep one with Brazil nuts in (neither of us are big on Brazil nuts).

Rachel: I'll take it. I'll just pick the Brazil nuts out.
Katie: On the bright side, it has pecans. *pronounces it PEE-cans*
R: Do you mean pecans? *pronounces it pick-CAHNS*
K: No, I mean pecans!
R: Is this like that apricot thing? *pronounces it AY-pricot*
K: It's APP-ricot.
R: You're wrong and you know you're wrong so you should feel wrong.
K: *aghast*
R: I… I'm sorry. But you're still wrong.
K: You're just a FOREIGNER.
R: I was BORN here!
K: But you didn't grow up here! Nobody from here says "pee-CAHN" or "AY-pricot".
R: Okay yeah but YOUR FAMILY COME ON. Don't be setting linguistic norms by your weird-ass family!
K: ...You have a point.
elaby: (Basil - *facepalm*)
Day two. It's bad.

Rachel: Oh shit, I'm on Pinterest again.
Katie: Rachel, get off Pinterest!
Rachel: BUT THERE ARE MORE PINS.

Will the desire to participate in Nano triumph over our short attention spans? One can only watch and hope.
elaby: (Lestrade - CJ What?)
Elaby: *puzzled typing* Er. "Ginormous" is a made-up word, right? It's giant and enormous together?
Caitirin: I bet it's in the dictionary.
Elaby: It's not picked up by my spell-check.
Caitirin: *googles* There. Ginormous, in the Merriam-Webster online. "Extremely large; humongous."
Elaby: ... *delighted giggling* I love the world.

First known use circa 1948, dudes. I had no idea.
elaby: (Holmes and Watson - L&S hand grab)
I love this month. I truly do. It has Nano and leaves on the ground and black branches against the sky all turquoise, and my birthday and Thanksgiving, but holy mother is it crammed full of stuff. So, my lovely beautiful wonderful f'listies, if I haven't commented on some of your stuff lately that you think I ought've, rest assured that I've bookmarked it and I will read it sometime. *hug squishes you all*

For now, I leave you with this e-mail exchange between my most perfect wifey and me, a couple of days ago, at work:

[livejournal.com profile] elaby: It's SO one of those days for EVERYbody here. *hides under desk and snaps jaws at passersby*
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: Oooh ferocious snapping Elaby! *guards fingers* *leaves offerings of half dressed detectives speaking in guarded ways about deep abiding friendships with lots of hand touching*
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: !!! *wibble* *glomptacklelove* YOU ARE THE BEST WIFE EVER THERE WAS. NO FOOLIN'.

Is she not? She knows me so well.

Blaaaarg!

[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *talking to iTunes* Kiss. My. Bum.
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: That's how I feel about everything in life right now, actually.
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *laughs* Good, then, we'll match!

Catching up on the interwebs! *missed her interwebs and its lovely denizens, that being you all*

Watching Miss Marple on PBS tonight, we were reminded (by a chance remark, not a comparison to the plot) of this little... something... [livejournal.com profile] caitirin came up with for [livejournal.com profile] _melisande_ way back when we were undergrads. I may have helped some :3 We can't remember exactly what the assignment was, but I think [livejournal.com profile] _melisande_ had to write something in pentameter as an assignment. It's not perfectly iambic, at any rate, so the assignment couldn't have been that... Anyway, this is what we gave her:

A peaceful tale with one aberration:
A sudden death by defenestration.

Anyone know if there's a name for the metrical form - ' - ' - ' - - ' - ?

Also, to counter all that culture up there, we had this conversation this afternoon.

[livejournal.com profile] elaby: *looking at a bottle of juice* What's flash pasteurization?
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: Maybe they take a superheated element and stick it in or something.
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: ... or they show it their boobies and it's so scared that all the microbes die.

*shifty look* ... *runs*

Whoa O.O

Talk about your weird coincidences...

[livejournal.com profile] elaby and [livejournal.com profile] caitirin watching the news:

News: Blah blah, with Katie Couric.
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: Katies are destined for greatness.
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: My mom saw her once*.
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: Really?
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: Yeah, at this store in Maine, called... uhm...
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: Yummies!**
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: No. Levinsky's.
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: I was close!
*approximately thirty seconds pass*
TV: 50% off at Levinsky's!
[livejournal.com profile] elaby and [livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *stare at each other*
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: O_O;; I seriously haven't thought of them in like fifteen years. I thought they were out of business!


*Now that I think about it, this may be erroneous. It could be that she saw another news lady.
**Yummies is a candy store in my hometown that we occasionally see commercials for :3

I have a new desktop image, and I have a new header on my LJ! Caitirin made me both :) But she said I had to post this because apparently she thinks I'm funny or something *loves her*

[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *plays Love is a Battlefield on her computer*
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: That's funny, because I was driving home today and I was all ranty and going "For the love of god, if I have to hear Love is a Battlefield on the radio one more time..."
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *looks guilty*
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: No, it's okay! I was just thinking that because the radio stations all go on and on about "Variety, variety, variety!" and all they ever freaking play is Uptown Girl and Love is a Battlefield.

It's the TRUTH. And I really like Billy Joel, but OMG. Yes, I know, you deflower Catholic virgins. And that guy who was "born in a small town" and "learned to fear Jesus in a small town." Shut up already. Jesus doesn't want you to fear him. Dear local radio stations - PLAY SOMETHING ELSE, PLZKTHX.

There's a station called Mike FM, which has no DJs and "plays everything", and they're pretty good. But when they say they play everything, they only sort of mean it. They don't play country or Enya or classical music. They mostly play a mix of 70's, 80's, and 90's rock interspersed with bizarre things I've heard OF but hardly ever heard - like "The Real Slim Shady". That's right, folks - they play Eminem and then five minutes later, Frank Sinatra. So it keeps you interested, at least.

We went picking strawberries early this morning (and raspberries too!) and we've been chopping them and now [livejournal.com profile] caitirin is smashing them in the kitchen. I went over to give her the last batch of chopped strawberries and as I was cleaning up, she dropped one of the strawberries on the floor.

[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: Ack!
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: What?
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: I dropped some on the floor. *points with foot* That one. It's dead*. It's dead to me! Get it out of my sight!



*"dead" is normally used to mean "it can't be used, throw it away" in our house. Things never got quite this dramatic before, though.

[livejournal.com profile] elaby: You know what I want to do? Watch Titus.
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: Let's get hammered and watch Shakespeare!

Note on the mood icon: I've had two sips so far, but I NEVER get to use this icon!

[livejournal.com profile] caitirin - *toothy grin!*
[livejournal.com profile] elaby - You are the biggest, cutest dork ever. *posts in LJ*
