Waffle Day

Here’s a nicely odd website I stumbled upon this morning. The crew who made this website is on a hiatus now as they have all gone down different paths (ex: one has gone off to art school). They have some interesting comics and photos peppered throughout their site.

Have a bowl of Waffle Soup.

Madeline Kahn Day

Madeline Kahn was born on September 29th, 1942 and lived until December 3rd, 1999.

I remember her in Young Frankenstein when she played Elizabeth, Dr. Frankenstein’s fiancee. Here is a quote from that movie.

[Dr. Frankenstein leans in for a kiss]
Elizabeth: Taffeta, darling.
Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Taffeta, sweetheart.
Elizabeth: [pulling away] No, the dress is taffeta. It wrinkles so easily.

October is Sneaking Up

October is quickly sneaking up on us like a glowing fog that always appears in a cemetary during a horror movie. This time I got some cool ideas from Bella Online, and Steve D. (Steve, I’m beginning to think you should start making these holiday lists! November is just around the corner, right after October. Go figure! Hehe.)

I did think of one holiday since the website I mentioned completely skipped the 13th. I know it’s considered an unlucky number. Poor 13. Always misjudged. So on the 13th, wear a hockey mask. You don’t have to wear it to work if you don’t want to, but I thought of the character Jason from the horror movie Friday the 13th. I know the 13th lands on a Thursday though this time, but just roll with it, mm-kay? Anyway, enjoy.

Find A Weird Website Day

Here’s a website for you if you’d like to learn useful Elvish phrases.

Suilaid (Greetings)! Gîl síla na lû govaded (A star shines on the time of our meeting). Im gelir ceni ad lín (I am happy to see you again)!

Pedich Edhellen? (Do you speak Elvish?)

This site shows you the exact phrase, then the pronunciation and then the English translation.

Gen hannon (I thank you). Calo anor na ven (May the sun shine on your road.)

Happy Singles Day

Only a few people have asked me why I’m not married yet. My brother asks me sometimes and I tell him that I haven’t found anyone worthy of me yet. He usually roles his eyes and moves on to something else to say that might bother me. About three years ago, one of my friends….er…scratch that…one of my acquaintances asked me if I was married. When I said “no”, she threw her head back and laughed, and then said “I knew it! I knew it.” I looked over at one of my other friends who was just as baffled at the rude answer as I was, and then I changed the subject.

Anyway, the following is a list I found on a website I can’t remember the name of now, that gives you more options on how to answer that question (besides the alternative: “None of your freakin business”).

Comebacks To “Why Aren’t You Married Yet?” (Warning, some of these might be harsh for married folk)

1. You haven’t asked yet.

2. I was hoping to do something meaningful with my life.

3. Because I just love hearing this question.

4. Just lucky, I guess.

5. It gives my mother something to live for.

6. My fiancee is awaiting his/her parole.

7. I’m still hoping for a shot at Miss/Mr. America.

8. Do you know how hard it is to get two tickets to Miss Saigon?

9. I’m waiting until I get to be your age.

10. It didn’t seem worth a blood test.

11. I already have enough laundry to do, thank you.

12. Because I think it would take all the spontaneity out of dating.

13. My co-op board doesn’t allow spouses.

14. I’d have to forfeit my billion dollar trust fund.

15. They just opened a great singles bar on my block.

16. I wouldn’t want my parents to drop dead from sheer happiness.

17. I guess it just goes to prove that you can’t trust those voodoo doll rituals.

18. What? And lose all the money I’ve invested in running personal ads?

19. I don’t want to have to support another person on my paycheck.

20. Why aren’t you thin?

21. I’m married to my career, although recently we have been considering a trial
separation.
