So I got my dog a new toy last month. And, it being the season, the toy is a Monkey Santa.

Since then, I've been documenting the adventures of Monkey Santa. Among other things, he's posed for a portrait with the Dowager Doggess, he stole my phone and took a selfie, and most recently, he's gone over to the Dark Side of the Force.

I find this all WAY funnier that it probably merits. Filing under "Something Weird I Really Like."

The Dowager Doggess is an impressive looking beast quit noble. Is she a breed or a work of lucky circumstance. either way, I think she is beautiful.

Thanks! I tell people she’s a Luxembourg Pony Hound.

But really, our best guess is German Shepherd/Husky mix.

Here's something weird I like - Putting Frosted Flakes on vanilla ice cream. I haven't done that since I was a kid. Until tonight.


I like bash scripting.


I don't even have an inkling of what that is.

I believe it's a vigorous form of calligraphy. Using one's fists, dipped in ink.

Monkey Santa's taken up meditation.

Still find this WAY funnier than I probably should. Friends are wondering if there might be a CO leak in my house or possibly some sort of blunt head trauma I don't remember receiving.

Hey, I've got a FB friend with a Lego mini in his likeness that he photographs during his travels (Europe, China, etc.) so it's not weird to me :)


That sounds great! :)

"Weird Al" Yankovic.

He's coming to Little Rock this spring, I think. Some friends of mine bought the VIP tickets to the show.

Envy!


I know! If I hadn't already gotten tickets for Iron Maiden I'd have bought tickets to this.

Monkey Santa's taken a crack at writing Hamlet.

Saw weird al live. He was great. And I'm not a big concert guy.

I like waking up to my dog snoring in my ear while her head rests on my shoulder.

Intentionally mixing and otherwise mangling metaphors. My most commonly used include "That train has sailed," and "It's half of one and six-dozen of the other."

I used to work with someone who said: "It's not rocket surgery."

Of course, she didn't mean to do it. And got a bit put out when we turned it into a regular thing we said.

In that vein, I also like misattributing quotes. "It's like Gandhi would say, 'you gotta look out for number one.'"


Pretty much everything I do annoys someone.

But by that token, there's 7 billion or so people who aren't annoyed by everything you do. Some might even say you're a hero.

"We'll burn that bridge when we get to it." (IIRC that was a country song/)

"Easy as cake/Piece of pie" (A cosmonaut from the movie 2010, who kept trying to use English idioms, but never got them quite right)

I thought of another. You know how when you think someone is splitting hairs, you can respond with "po-tay-to, po-tah-to" or "to-may-to, to-mah-to"? I have two corruptions for that one. The first is to pronounce the word the same way both times (e.g., "po-tay-to, po-tay-to"). The second is to say "po-tay-to, to-may-to".


4 people marked this as a favorite.

I like to mix it up. Like "potayto, half dozen of another."

This discussion has made me realize how much of my time I devote to making language a complete impediment to communication. I really should stop.

I also enjoy brushing my teeth while listening to "My Shiny Teeth and Me" from The Fairly Oddparents. It's almost exactly two minutes long, which is how long you're supposed to spend brushing.

I do this all the time, as well as the "burn that bridge" one.

I think this one has actually started to make the leap from a deliberate mangling to a simple saying.

This is weird, even for me. I CANNOT explain why, but when I'm shaving or trimming my beard the Star Trek episode "Friday's Child" plays out during the whole time.

Holy s###. Whenever I watch the Star Trek episode "Friday's Child," I envision some dude shaving or trimming his beard.


They met on a forum and together their love tamed a continent.

When blueberries sit in the fridge too long and shrivel up and become like quasi-raisins. I LOVE THEM. I use them as salad toppers.


Huh. Never thought to try that. I’ll give it a go!

Rolling frozen blueberries in seal oil and using the resultant snacks to top pilot bread...

I miss having a regular line on seal oil. :(

For a variety of reasons, I don't have much mechanical/home repair know-how. So I really like it when I have to call in a specialist and they explain what they're doing and show me how it's done. It's a total buzz--today I learned how to repair a shower head that was going cold and I feel like a wizard. A WIZARD!!!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I completely relate to that. 100%.


I like that feeling of invincibility, but it's completely nullified when I figure out I forgot everything the next day.

I'm so bad with tools, I have been disarmed by friends while trying to carve pumpkins.

But, a weird thing I like is sleeping with socks on. It's been cold, but my feet are so comfortable!

I also relate to that.

A related thing that I like is when I spend forever trying to figure something out, and then give up in frustration. Then I call in a specialist, and they can't figure it out, either! There's a little party of my that shouts "Hooray! I'm not stupid!"

Ah yes, that thrill of vindication I get when I have to ask someone for help with something not working on my computer and then they can't get it to work either.

Not as common as the other occurrence, when I say 'this isn't working, I've tried a bunch of times...' and just as someone takes a look, it starts working...

As a rule, I don't like iceberg lettuce. It has very little nutritional value and as such, I usually make my salads with raw spinach leaves. But I do like the little crunch they give to burgers and sandwiches. I'm a complicated man.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Iceberg lettuce is a zero-calorie food! You burn more calories eating it than it gives you! Eating it is like exercise!

(I'm not a nutritionist. I didn't make that fact up, but I could be repeating it from someone who completely made it up. Iceberg lettuce probably won't kill you, though.)

I've heard people claim that drinking cold water is 'negative calories' but I'm skeptical.

As for burgers, I always like to put avocado. Yum!

I'm pretty much a cheeseburger purist, though once in a while I'll go nuts and have avocado on one. I do like it when I do.

I have my burger with cheese and pickles and with fries and a Coke.

Because you get no calories from water, but you burn calories trying to warm back up.

I think zero calories and negative calories are the same thing.
