There is no Gary Phenomenon.
Triple in Italian is triplo.
There are 17 carbs in a Grande Peppermint Mocha.
Mantequilla is Spanish for butter.
How to write my name in Macedonian.
Marketing accounts for 20 million US jobs.

Whooooooo is looking for a jaawwwwwwwb!

AKB48 is sixty Japanese girls singing.
Why Joe Black has an office.
It's good to bring in beer.

... and a partridge in a pear tree!

(Belated) Music Monday - Punk Rock Girl

What did you listen to in the 80s?
Adame inspired this pick based on my outfit.
Green tshirt with a skull on it, black steampunk vest, black satin poof skirt, and green converse. My hair is all fro-ey today too.
I'll post a pick if I get someone to take one.
Smoochy boochies

Music Monday - Big Bang

I've always loved The Barenaked Ladies; ever since I was introduced to them in the early nineties by Mike Crew, who loved to sing "If I Had $1,000,000. In fact, that might be part of the reason why I liked Mike, because he always introduced me to new music and movies.

Currently hooked on this show, The Big Bang Theory, where I honestly believe that the writers are peaking into my home and secretly videoing my friend's parties. Otherwise, how would you know this stuff? Nerds rule.

A Future for Back to the Future

Check out the video. Within two seconds the hairs on my arms were tingling. Just the sound of the twinkling 'do-do-do-do' from Back to the Future makes you lean closer into your screen. And then the wheels. The Flux Capacitor. The feet! THE CANE! OMFSLARTIBARTFAST I HAVE TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!

I donated $250 to get this made. The LEAST you can do is donate a couple of bucks. COME ON!!!

Tie Tuesday - The one in which I learn it's not tripio

Adame was all like "I'm going to rock this shizz with meh coat on!"
Utah said I looked prettier last week (um ... burn?)
And KelBel thought my paisley tie was retro awesome.

At Starbucks, my drink is a doppio espresso con panna. But when I want another shot, I tell them a tripio. Which is what I ordered today. I thought I should actually learn what the Italian word for triple is. It's triplo. And how did I learn this? By googling, of course. What was more entertaining is the very first link that comes up is the definition of Italian for Triple... is for Urban Dictionary. (Not exactly safe for work)

This is a song that came from Devo. It hasn't grown on me yet, but thought I would share.
