Mispronounciated Words

The other day I was part of a discussion about commonly mispronounced words.

A few of my favorites are:

1. supposubly (A favorite of Joey Tribiani of "Friends" but should be supposedly)

2. incidences (incidence--already plural, thank you)

3. orientated or disorientated (You are probably quite disoriented if you say disorientated)

And of course, there is a website listing all of the mispronounced words.

Here are a few favs I found on said informative website:

1. doggy dog world instead of dog eat dog world (although it does seem like it is a doggy dog world what with all of those pampered pets around)

2. Heinekein remover instead of Heimlich maneuver (this one made me laugh out loud. People seriously say that?)

3. Carpool Tunnel Syndrome instead of carpal tunnel syndrome ( funny but I can see how it could happen...especially if you carpool through a lot of tunnels)

And here are a few I am guilty of:

1. spitting image instead of spit and image (didn't know that!)

2. persnickety instead of pernickety (again--who knew? In fact, spell checker doesn't even like pernickety.)

Ice Cream Float Cup

How awesome is this?

A special plastic cup you can fill with ice cream and then attach to your soda bottle for instant root beer float. Or Purple Cow. Or whatever floats (ha ha ha) your boat.

Always just the right amount of ice cream to soda.

And portable.

Who could ask for anything more??

I Like Cookies....But These? Not So Much.

Cookie cutters are supposed to make cookies more fun and appetizing.


Okay if that is indeed the case then this cookie cutter?

Is seriously wrong.

Seriously, seriously wrong.

Farewell, King of Pop

Michael Jackson's memorial service was today.

Seeing as Michael was such a musical force, I can't help but wonder if we have this century's Elvis on our hands now.

Will there be MJ sightings?

Maybe he and Elvis are having one hell of a jam session.

I sure hope so.

Moon Walk on, Michael. You will be missed.
