Just, ya know, stuff

First, happy Fourth! Yay, America!

Everyone please be safe today.

And now on to just some random stuff:

Does this pic look weird to you?

It's an advert for one touch shopping at the Piggly Wiggly (that's a supermarket chain down here) and I swear that's a mutant hand. I mean really. First off, it's teensy. I understand that I have rather big hands for a woman, but Sweet Mother of Stan Lee ... that lady's hand is almost as narrow as her wrist. Also, I don't know about you, but my fingers curve inward toward the centre of my palm so that when I duplicate that gesture, my fingers overlay each other and slant right-to-left downward. Her fingers are perfectly straight up and down. It's creepy! Her thumb seems to be rotated awkwardly outward, too.



And this little gem was cut from a local paper. It's a wedding announcement.

Yes. Her name is that. That is her name. 'Toilet' plus 'A'. Toilet-uh. Toiletta.

On an interesting side note, I worked with a chick (same town) named LaTrina. 'Latrine' plus 'A'. Perhaps loo-related names are catching.

I also worked with a Demonica.

People will be naming their children after stuff out of HP Lovecraft or comic books here soon!

Well, I did name one of my kids 'John', although it is the most acceptable way to call your kid a crapper.

HA! Now that's amusing. I thought it was bad when I helped out one of our clients and her name was Candida. All I could think about was yeast. That was some baaaaaaad mental imagery right there let me tell you.

My husband worked with a woman named (here's the phonetic spelling): feh-mall-lee.

Spelled: Female

I can actually make my hand look just like that - but as I've told you before I have effed up body parts.

The names KILL me!!

The crazy naming game is so amusing.
My friend teaches in good ole ELGIN, SC, and she has some interesting kids in her classes whom i have met during a lunch visit;

Trebla (daddy's name is Albert--trebla spelled backwards)
Reba McEntire (the poor little girl thinks she IS Reba)
Bud Weiser (heard that one before but never met a "real" one).
There were the car names: Porcha and maxima.
but i wasn't luck enough to meet any named after the toilet!
