A Frosty Good Time

My office party was this afternoon. We had an awesome array of great food, but no booze this year since we did it in-house and everybody had places to drive afterwards. It was fun, though. We drew names for a gift exchange, and I got this cute little item.

You sit him in front of a door or window to stop drafts. Cute and functional.

One of the guys gave another guy a gag gift that had everybody in stitches. It was "Hooter Muffs." I took a picture of him wearing it (them?) on his head but, for some reason, it didn't come out. I'm not going to describe it. You can use your imagination, which I'm sure will do it all kinds of justice.

Afterwards, I had errands to run and last-minute items to pick up. Traffic was hellacious coming and going, as was the traffic in the stores. I am so glad to have everything done and be in for the day. It's cold and feeling more like Christmas. Buckets of rain are on the way; alas, no snow, but the temperature does feel more seasonal. I may even find a little time to read after while. I have both the new Greg Iles and the new Dean Koontz. It's going to be very hard deciding which one to start with. My boss gave me a very generous B&N gift certificate, too, so I'm going to have some fun spending that after the holidays.

It took me only about five minutes to find the day's Twisted Linguistics. Holy moly, it gets worse and worse. When this stuff comes from a putative writing forum, it should take days to find this many Words Gone Wild.

probubly - Nope, I'm not defining this one. The same person writes it over and over again, ad nauseam, actually believing that's how the word is spelled. I'm only putting it up for the sake of gawking at it. Again.

ecelution - I can't even get a clue about what this word was intended to be. It makes no sense in any context. All I can do is guess that it refers in some obscure way to the obverse of evolution.

i must hace - When one must hasten to hack.

prehaps - Before chance occurrences.

dissapointed - Disrespecting a conehead.

a timely manor - A stately home whose time has come.

commentment - A redundant remark.

humerous - Erotic humming.

pleas watch - Keeping an eye on the court docket.

computer clitch - A not very nice reference to a PC's private parts.

acorss - Description of a very common person, of course.

Here's something fun for you to play with.

You Are a Gingerbread House

A little spicy and a little sweet, anyone would like to be lost in the woods with you.

You Are Eggnog

Rich, sweet, and probably a little drunk. Everyone who knows you tends to get a little fatter.

? What?

Office partys SHOULD be alcohol free, they tend to bring out negative behavior.....

Serena Joy said...

Who knows, Rex? This one may have been a little out there. God knows I hardly resemble gingerbread. LOL.

Whatever eradicates negativity, I'm all for it.:)

***You Are a Yule Log***

While you do have holiday spirit, you have a secret, heathen past.

Serena Joy said...

Hmmm. I think secret pasts are pretty fun. Yule Log, though? I thought this quiz was for holiday FOOD. The anti-cook wants to know, is a Yule Log also some kind of food? LOL.

You Are a Trifle
No doubt, you have many intricate layers. But deep down, you're a little squishy.

I think it insulted me. LOL

Serena Joy said...

I think the thing can't spell and it meant "truffle." Everybody loves truffles, especially when they're so thickly coated in chocolate that the inside is squishy.:)

Hale McKay said...

LOL @ computer clitch!

Others were funny and good too - but that one cracked me up.

Serena Joy said...

Glad you enjoyed it, Mike.:)

Serena, glad you had fun at the office party.
