I'm heading north on the highway to Michigan for that party I keep yammering about. Michigan is a blue state btw. I know, I know, you are WAY over all the blue state/red state shenanigans, but I like to haul out dusty ol' shit from the attic and sit cross-legged on the floor and reminisce. Michigan is blue because of the auto workers, though. The unions love their Democrats. The Michiganders aren't blue because they cotton to man on man action. They are all about the constitutional amendments to restrict basic human rights of the queers. Why dost thou forsake me, Wolverine? God knows I love you seven ways to Tuesday. Claw me with those knife-hands, bitch.
Well, that was a tangent I didn't expect. Where was I? I did last minute shopping a few days ago for another friend, recently 40, who I'll bump into this weekend. She's under the mistaken impression that she means as much to me as the present day birthday girl. Rather than disavow her of this delusion, I picked up a Shuffle and loaded it up with Maxity goodness. Now try and tell me you wouldn't want me buying you presents. That's good shit people! Did I just say so myself?
Will you permit me a small rant? I'm not fussy interpersonally with language or grammar. It's not so much because things don't bother me, it's that I know if I fuss, it'll come back to bite me in the ass. There's this one thing, though. Can we all just pause for a moment and phonetically sound out how to pronounce "Alzheimer's"? Yes? It seems that there are a dozen variants people try on for size, and they usually kinda whisper over it because they're fairly certain they aren't getting it right. Is that you? Well, you aren't getting it right if it comes out like "Old Timers". It's 'älts-"hI-m&rz. Let's say it together aloud. Very good. Thanks for humoring me. Comment me about words that drive you crazy, if you are so disposed.
Have a great weekend, y'all!
ADDED: Who is seeing Serenity this weekend? I have my proto-nephew FIRED UP to check it out. The thing is, I have to bust him out of Chinese school on Saturday afternoon to see the matinee. Just because it will be against his mother's wishes, is that considered an abduction in a court of law?
