Maybe it was the baggage handler’s way of coming out?

Are they going to try to salvage what’s left of people’s belongings, etc. before scrapping the boat?
LOVED both the song and the video. I want that on MP3 to go w/ the rest of my Fiona collection!
ALL Pooh fans need to read this, and have the tissues handy.
No matter how many times I see #4, it makes me literally laugh out loud!
I’ve had ALL the foods on this list within the last 4 days, and people still mistake me for a zipper if I stand sideways. It’s not the TYPE of food you eat that makes you fat necessarily.
What about: “I have Leonard Nimoy’s DNA? Now all I need is a healthy egg and I can grow my own Leonard Nimoy”
“I’m just giving you the napkin.”
6&12 for me. :)
The days that Bill Watterson & Berkeley Breathed (Bloom County) retired their comics were some of the saddest days of my life! The biggest shame is that so many children only know Calvin from those AWFUL peeing decals! We must make a point of sharing our anthologies with the younger generations. Wish they’d rerun C&H like they do Peanuts!
CORRECTION:Demi Lovato will play Rachel’s NYC friend in the new season of Glee for at least six episodes. Ryan Murphey has hinted that this may be Glee’s last season, and even if it’s not, 6 more seasons is extremely optimistic. :)
What about the folks who try to BACK OUT of the toll pass only lanes? What, was that PASS ONLY sign not big enough for you? Or, let me guess, you were too busy on the phone to bother to READ the sign.

#37 Xeroxing your 2” thick tape list to send to another for trading purposes; having to get up off of the couch every 45 minutes to flip the tape.
We had a game like that when we were young and poor, and there used to be such a thing as “the dented/unlabeled can rack” that was full of mystery cans priced @ like 10 cents each. We’d clear that sucker all the way out. If it was your turn to cook dinner, you got to grab 3 cans out of the mystery shelf, and you had to base the meal around those. If you got beans, corn, and soup, you were pretty lucky; if you got peaches, tuna, and pickles, it was much harder. Oh, and we didn’t have a “fully stocked pantry” either, just lots of boxes from the generic aisle w/ b&w labels that said RICE, CORN, CEREAL, etc. I remember when this first came out, I wondered which dinner guest owed me royalties for stealing my old lifestyle!
Thank you (blush). Guess it looks better in the photo. :D
My own Pinterest fail: My 1st attempt at a diaper cake. The recipient LOVED it though, and said she’d always wanted a diaper cake. I guess it’s the thought that counts.
Most of this happens b/c no one sits down w/ the tween and teaches them all about make-up. When my niece 1st started wearing make-up, I took her to the drugstore, bought her about $50 worth of appropriate, affordable make-up, and spent a nice afternoon with her teaching her how to apply it, with several face-washing-redo-from-scratch sessions along the way. Of course, when the make-up lessons were done, I said “If you’re old enough to wear make-up, you’re old enough for the condom lesson too.” And then I promptly gave her one. When she complained it was “embarrassing”, I replied “Think it’s embarrassing now? Think how embarrassing it will be the 1st time you actually need to use one. At least ONE of you will know how to do so.” It’s amazing how one lesson perfectly segues into another. :)
Just make friends w/ someone who has a military card. The PX on base sells ALL of this stuff! (I befriended someone @ Lavenham when I lived there, JUST for US food!)
Can we get a tool tip or some other indiation a link is going to a video, so we don’t waste our time clicking on something we can only see when we want to read?
#9 is my biggest nightmare! That’s a padded cell, BTW.
My name is in SPELL CHECK and folks still insist on spelling it “Laural”!
18. A Real Woman doesn’t need folks telling her what makes a “Real Woman”; she just knows she IS one!
Okay, after reading the whole post, I submit it should be titled: “The 12 Best Games to Play While You’re People-Watching”. That wouldn’t make folks cringe when they see it in an RSS feed, and make them want to click through JUST to comment on the title.
Courtney Cox in “Dancing in the Dark” (Springsteen) http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2006/celebdatabase/courtneycox/courtney_cox4_180_135.jpg
I think you’re missing the word “Are” in that title. That, or drop the -ing from watching. :)
My childhood was validated when Raven came out. I always KNEW child stars were all gay. I saw it in the way she looked at Lisa Bonet when she was 3 years old and played her Cosby daughter. Those leers… (And for all of you sarcasm-challenged folk, like Sheldon, I am of course, j/k.)
#2: Karen was actually in development, but the network feared it would turn out to be another “Joey”, so they dropped it.
11. Lucy stars in a bad movie version of the musical “Mame.” Lucy rocked, as always, but the rest of the movie, not so much. Bea Arthur reprised her role as Vera, and of course, rocked too. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5E5u5xO8t68 for them doing Bosom Buddies.
#8: 47,000 years of bad luck!
My favorite happened in RFK Stadium in DC. We were near the restrooms/concessions when we heard somefirecrackers pop, then saw some kids running. My ex-husband put his hand up to stop them, saying something like: “Halt. Stadium Security.” Unfazed, the kids stopped, looked up at him in awe, and said “Whoa! Are you from the 70s, man?” (almost like we were Bill & Ted and had time traveled to that spot.)
Sheldon to Penny: Sheldon: Why do you have the Chinese character for soup tattooed on your right buttock? Penny: It’s not soup, it’s courage. Sheldon: No, it isn’t. But I suppose it does take courage to demonstrate that kind of commitment to soup.
Well, Wendy’s fries may be more caloric, but they’re not healthier than McD’s when you figure in overall nutrition. Since most of a potato’s vitamins are in the skin, skin-on fries are always healthier than skinless ones.
I think “The Phantom Tollbooth” belongs on this list!
#10: Anyone else hear this in Stefon’s (SNL) voice?
Just HAVE to point out that while SOME of these have a watcher or 2, NONE of these list a single bidder. If I list my “Growing Up Skipper” doll (which thanks to the internet, I’ve found out is not as rare as I’d previously thought) for $500, can my auction be in a Buzzfeed post too? :)
Not in US English. Here, Spelt is a grain.
WW was from a mythical island, somewhere near Greece, and possibly close to Turkey. I think a Cuban/Latina like Gina would be PERFECT casting, as well as ethnically appropriate. Depending on which iteration of her background you adhere to, she was either a child of the Gods, made out of clay, a member of the legendary Amazons, etc. Having WW depicted as white is probably more inappropriate than casting a brown-skinned person in the role, no matter which back-story you adhere to. And I’ve always kind of had a girl-crush on Gina Torres anyway. And I was really into WW as a small child. :) (I tried to reply to PunkySpunky’s comment, but for some reason, the reply button wouldn’t work. This is actually in reply to the following comment: “Yes she would be great to play this since she had played many power roles but she is not the same race as wonder women)
My birthday is STILL in August. :) We used to travel on my birthdays, and I’d get pictures of the actual things I would finally receive once we were off the road. Most years, if I had a party at all, it was nowhere near my birthday. As a young child, I envied my sisters who got cupcakes in school. But as a teen, having a summer birthday RULED. And as an adult, well, you got used to it not being a big deal while you were still in elementary school, so you really don’t care if no one does anything “special”, as you learned at a young age to depend on yourself to make your birthday rock. In the long run, having an August birthday just makes you a better person and a lot less whiney. 8-D
In my mid-twenties, my family INSISTED on going out for ice cream to celebrate my birthday, directly after leaving the cemetery where my Grandmother had just been put to rest. Then, I got stuck for a while in Chicago when my connecting flight was canceled, so I took the time to check my messages, and was delighted to find a depressed friend who had “dropped out” had called to reconnect. Was less delighted when I finally arrived home only to find my answering machine, TV, tape collection, and a lot more had been taken in a break-in. I later found out it was my landlord who robbed me. And I never DID get that answering machine w/ my friend’s new # on it back. So let me sum it up: my birthday party started with going to Grandma’s funeral, having to play happy while the family sang to me over ice cream, had a horrible time getting home, and when I finally did, I discovered my apartment had been burglarized by my landlord. My birthday is this coming Thursday, and I guarantee, it will be MUCH BETTER than that one. About the only thing that could top the one I described above is if my house burned down this year.
