Portland, OR metro. Interests include, but in no way limited to: pugs, other dogs, True Blood, Alexander Skarsgard, Deadwood, Justified, Fringe, photography, books, graphic design. This is my personal blog. If you are interested in pugs, I recommend boodapug.
LOL! Now I’m trying to figure out a word that means the exact opposite of “admire.” There are lots of synonyms for admire: idolize, laud, look up to. But what is the opposite. Not just despise, abhor or hate. But something that means “activity trying NOT to be a like someone.” The thesaurus has not helped.
Sunday’s Pearls Before Swine was great both because Goat got to give it to Rat but also because I totally understand how Rat feels. You HAVE to worry so the bad stuff can’t sneak up on you…. Better go meditate now.
Japanese Department Store May Want to Look Up the Word ‘Fucking’
If only we could have sat in on the meeting where the marketing team for this Osaka department store came up with the idea for their “Fuckin’ Sale,” spotted early this month by a reader of Jake Adelstein’s Japan Subculture blog.
-There should be some cool English words on these signs. -How about “Fuckin’ Sale?” -What’s that mean? -Fuckin’ means, like, really good. So it’s a really good sale. -And there’s no other meaning to “fuckin’? Nothing at all that might embarrass us on the internet? Remember what happened with our Save-a-Shit-Ton promotion…
Listen Alex, I know you like your privacy, and I’m sure you’re really happy that you’ve basically been a missing person for the last four months. I get it. But I miss you and your WUT faces and your ugly pants and most of all I just miss your socks. I miss them so much.
LOL. Kinda glad I’ve been too busy to pay attention. Out of sight, out of mind, apparently. Love this GIF, though.
