This happens more often than I care to admit

So, I found this on imgur and wanted to give credit to the person who made it, but I can’t find the original post by rainbowsqueeze on tumblr, so here’s the main account. I’m not even sure if ranbowsqueeze is the original maker of the comic.

The Oxford comma

December 16th, 2012 Comments off

Oxford commas can also create ambiguity.

Then there’s Vampire Weekend. They don’t give a fuck about the Oxford comma.

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I’ve seen those English dramas too, they’re cruel
So if there’s any other way to spell the word
It’s fine with me, with me

Why would you speak to me that way?
Especially when I always said that I
Haven’t got the words for you
All your diction dripping with disdain
Through the pain
I always tell the truth

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I climbed to Dharamsala too, I did
I met the highest Lama, his accent sounded fine
To me, to me

Check your handbook, it’s no trick
Take the chapstick, put it on your lips
Crack a smile, adjust my tie
Know your boyfriend, unlike other guys

Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
Why would you lie about anything at all?
First the window, then it’s to the wall
Lil’ Jon, he always tells the truth

Check your passport, it’s no trick
Take the chapstick, put it on your lips
Crack a smile, adjust my tie
Know your butler, unlike other guys

Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
Why would you lie about anything at all?
First the window, then it’s through the wall
Why would you tape my conversations?
Show your paintings at the United Nations
Lil’ Jon, he always tells the truth

Updated Blogs

May 18th, 2009 Comments off

Yesterday, I spent about two hours updating our blogs to the latest version of WordPress. It’s supposed to be a quick 5 minute upgrade, but we all know how well those things go.

For some reason, I couldn’t upgrade the folders all at once and had to go back and transfer each file individually. It kind of sucked because there are several folders and each folder randomly upload files from each folder. That meant that I had to check each folder to make sure the right files were in the right places.

It really sucked because it blew all the free time that I had yesterday. Anyway, everything is updated and I’m using a new template for the blog. I’ll stick with this one until I find something better that I like.

In Which I Finally Catch Up: Part III, Finale

April 16th, 2009 Comments off

Things here in Scottsbluff are pretty much the same as last week.  Work.  Work.  Work.  Then, some more work.  There isn’t much in the way of exciting news happening at the moment, so this will be short.

My car is getting a new oil pan and its 120,000 mile timing belt change done at the moment, so Paul has to drive me to work every day.  I should have the car back by the end of the week, which is good because I hate waiting an hour for Paul to be finished so I can get picked up and go home.

Also, we’ve booked our tickets to Ireland.  We’re going to go see Matt‘s parents.  We are also hoping to hook up with Annau and Leylah too.  With a little luck, Hendrik and Salma will be able to visit, but that’s not a guarantee.  I totally lucked out with the tickets.  $414 for each ticket, round-trip, from Denver to Dublin.  I also get to learn to drive on the wrong side of the road.  Heh, look out Ireland!

Does He Even Know He’s Gay?

October 14th, 2008 Comments off

So, there’s this guy I know.  Let’s call him Billy.  Why Billy, you ask?  Well, that’s in honor of Stan Marsh’s grandpa on South Park who calls everyone Billy.  So, Billy it is.

In all seriousness, Billy fits all the typical gay stereotypes.  He’s got the poofy, 80s feathered hair that’s always combed just so.  He even carries a comb with him, just in case it, somehow, gets messed up.  He’s got the voice.  It’s very difficult to listen to.  Even on a girl his voice would be too girly.

His handshake is limper than a wet noodle.  When he shakes your hand, he always has this, “I’m secretly a creepy guy” look on his face.  The creepy guy thing doesn’t have anything to do with being gay but it’s, well, it’s downright creepy.

He’s also got the 1950s school cardigan.  No one has worn them in 50 years, but, there he is, strutting around like cardigans are the coolest piece of clothing on the planet.  And, when I say strut, I mean he’s watched Harvey Fierstein walk around too much.

Unfortunately, in this town, being gay is worse than being a murderer.  I try not to think about it, but, every time I see Billy, I think how unfortunate he is that we are in the 21st century and he still has to lie about who he is.  It’s really a shame too.  I’m sure Billy does know that he’s gay, but, unless he moves from this town, he’s never going to admit it.
