Friday Mish-Mash

Many a good hanging prevents a bad marriage.
~William Shakespeare

Let's start off with a couple of "Til Death They Do Part" stories, or "Adventures in Holy Dreadlock," that struck me as humorous.

Myspace Layouts

London: A Scottish bride attacked her new husband with her stiletto shoe, hitting him in the head in an upstairs hotel room while their wedding reception was going on below. The groom staggered to the front desk clutching a bloody towel to his head and hotel personnel called the police. The bride told police she and her husband had been "accusing each other of different things" and began throwing things at each other after an argument in the room. They're still together; the bride is in counseling.

Plymouth, Michigan: A 47-year-old wife will stand trial for stabbing her 86-year-old husband wih a fork during a restaurant food fight, this despite the fact that the husband is furious that she was charged. The couple left court holding hands after her arraignment.

It's the weekend. Thank God. It was a long and tiresome week. And it's not only TGIF, but it's Friday the 13th. Yes! Bring it on. I love Friday the 13ths. It's blessedly cool, the day is young and full of potential, and I haven't a care in the world -- as long as I don't think about the neighboring Scuz From Hell and his arsenal. I ought to just take one of my discarded pillows over there and associcate him and be done with it.

FUN WITH TWISTED LINGUISTICS

recouperation - The act of getting one's money back after a botched operation.

To whit - Mail addressed to Walt Whitman.

propogators - Little propeller beanies for alligators.

planced - What dancing, prancing plants did.

persprctive - This is something involving pricks. I'm not sure exactly what.

invloloved - Burning, flaming love.

agaim - Let's play one more time!





You Are A Romantic


You life your life like a fairy tale... or at least you try to.
Living for magical moments, you believe there's only one true love for you.
Love is the most important thing in your life, and you don't take it for granted.
Your perfect match loves to be in love as much as you do!

Stories of love gone bad only to be followed by the fact you are a romantic? Hello irony, I missed you =P.

Today really is the 13th then? I thought (hoped) I was wrong about that, but it appears not. OHMMMMM. OHMMMM. OHMMMM. Chants to keep the bad mojo away.

Serena Joy said...

Don't pay much attention to the quiz, Kan. The damn thing's dyslexic. "You life your life like..." WTF is that?!

It really is the 13th. It's GLORIOUS. You need a better chant, though, hon. Try this one: Ohm-shakalaka, ohm-shakalaka-boom, ohm-shakalaka-ohm-boom-bam.

***You Are A Realist***


When it comes to romance, you tend to take a realistic approach.
You believe that love takes time, and it's something you have to work hard for.
A bit cynical, over the top romance tends to get under your skin.
Your heart is difficult to win ... but it's totally worth it.

OMG!! I went to High School in Plymouth, MI.

You Are A Realistic Romantic

It's easy for you to get swept away by romance...
But you've done a pretty good job keeping perspective.
You're still taken in by love poems and sunsets
You just don't fall for every dreamy pick up line!

I checked twice this morning for your new post and there was nothing.
I was beginning to worry you had been kidnapped by the neighbor's from hell.
Never Ever mess with a redhead..ask Lucy.:)

Charles said...

Why is it more legislators don't read more Shakespeare? If they didn't prevent the bad marriages, they could at least prevent the divorces. :)

"You life your life like a fairy tale... or at least you try to."
-Say WHAT?

I hope you're enjoying that front sent your way. Now where's those tropical depressions for here?

Cool. Another Buggs fan. He had such great quotes, better than the Bard. ;D

Serena Joy said...

Rah-rah for the bunny. Let's don't let him hear the shish part, though. He might hear it as shish-ka-bunny-go-boom-yum-yum. It's not good to scare the bunny.:)

Realism totally rules, Roxan.:)

No kidding, TC? It's a small world, isn't it? Listen, if I'm not heard from in, like, 24 hours, then call out the militia. I may have been kidnapped and my buddy Ethel wasn't able to get me out.:)

The front is delicious, Charles. It's only in the 70s. Be careful what you wish for, though -- tropical depressions can be wicked indeed. Um, you have now put the thought in my head to look for some quotes which could be attributed to -- Shakesbunny.:-)

Charles said...

Wundervoll. Bring it on. I love the Bunny. One of my favorites is, "What a maroon!"

Charles said...

So should we call him, Buggs Bardy, or Bard Bunny?

MONA said...

Adventures of holy dreadlocks!! LOL! I know only one... deadlock...

I wonder when one learns to say 'enough is enough'.

Friday the 13th has always happy go lucky for me too!

I love your twisted lingustics...

& I see that you are truly a romantic! :)

MONA said...

tropical depressions ARE wicked...

Serena Joy said...

I love the term "maroons," Charles. I use it all the time (as you might imagine). LOL. I don't know, Buggs Bard has a bit of a ring to it, don't you think?

Speaking of the Bard, keeping in mind his bawdy side, there is "another" interpretation to today's quotation which I heard once upon a time.

Hi, Mona. I think those couples might have been deadlocked in holy dreadlock. And some people NEVER learn to say enough is enough. Happy Friday the 13th you!

yp, there's just no denying it..

TGIF...thank you god!!

Serena Joy said...

Long week, Leelee? You need a restful, romantic weekend of relaxation. Go for it!

Charles said...

I now can see the ribald meaning to which you refer, now that you have pointed it out. Buggs would never have resorted to such mechanisms.

Serena Joy said...

You're right, Charles. Buggs would simply tell it like it is. Such twix are for other rabbits.:-)

tfg said...

86 year old dude with a 47 year old? That guy must have some serious skills or cash.

Serena Joy said...

I thought that was pretty bizarre, too, T. A 47-year-old woman needs a 27-year-old man, don't you think?:-)

ThatGreenyFlower said...

I don't need a quiz to tell me that I'm a pragmatist who believes in love. Ohm-shakalaka.

Serena Joy said...

A loving pragmatist is nothing to sneeze at, Greeny. It's a very good combination. Ohm-shakalaka-boom-bam-ohm.:)

Camille Alexa said...

So are you planning a f-13 treat post?

No, I usually laugh the pick up lines in the face then say, "Oh, you were serious."

Serena Joy said...

Alas, I have no treats, Camille. This was pretty much it for the 13th.:)

Seeley, that's a great come-back line! And, of course, it's only right that the quiz should peg a Romance writer as a romantic.

G-Man said...

Serena..
I too use the term "What a Maroon"..Because I'm surrounded by them!

Would you believe that I'm a Hopeless Romantic?

...Maybe just hopeless?

Serena Joy said...

Galen, apparently there are plenty of maroons to go around.:)

I want to know how you picked up the much more romantic tag "Hopeless Romantic." All I got was a plain old generic "Romantic." What are you doing that I'm not doing?

G-Man said...

Being hopeless.....
You are much smarter than me...
Theres hope for you yet!!
But I do have fun..
(BIG SMILE)
xoxox

Serena Joy said...

As long as there's hope for moi, I say laissez le bon temps rouler. Some days I maybe have too much fun.:-)

Hale McKay said...

What do you call a maroon from Glasgow? a macaroon!

Sorry about that.

Friday the 13ths are always a fun day for me also. As I have no superstitious traits, I love to horrify those who are superstitious.

I dliberately walk under ladders; step on sidewalk cracks; ignore pennies on the ground; I look for black cats so they can cross my path; I wear on this day a baseball cap with large number "13" emblazoned on it.

Diesel said...

You'd have to be seriously screwed up to stab your husband with a fork. I mean, hello? Ever heard of a steak knife?

MONA said...

deadlocked in dreadlock. That makes perfect sense.It happens...truly

deadlocked in dreadlock with a maroon...LOL 'Bloody' combination

I need a bloody mary....Giggle!!

Charles said...

SJ,
I have a question, so please don't think me stupid...
What did you change to get the text cuties said, "What?!" instead of just "Comments:"?

Charles said...

And which version of templates are you using?

Charles said...

SJ,
Never mind, I figured it out.

Lee said...

Ain't love grand? Not if you're on the wrong side of the fork!

Pink said...

you are such a romantic...blood dripping, stillettos to the head ;)

you're my kind of romantic, babe!
xx
pinks

Annie Wicking and Loman Austen said...

wow isn't love grand... Does this mean I don't love my man enough because I don't want to harm him in any way. I just love him to bits
:-)

Just a thought

Annie

Serena Joy said...

Mike, where'd you get your 13th cap? I want one!

You'd have to be seriously screwed up to stab your husband with a fork. I mean, hello? Ever heard of a steak knife?

The woman is apparently a mental midget, Diesel. Everybody knows knives do a better job than forks. Shoot, I've known that since I was 2.

deadlocked in dreadlock with a maroon...LOL 'Bloody' combination

I need a bloody mary....Giggle!!


Fix one for me, too, Mona. I wouldn't mind getting all giggly.:-)

Never mind, I figured it out.

Found what you needed, Charles? If you run into any other questions, just give me a yell.

Ain't love grand? Not if you're on the wrong side of the fork!

LOL, Lee. Ain't that a forkin' corker?

you're my kind of romantic, babe!

Thelma, is that you?
Love, Louise:-)

Probably saying "love him to bits" would be the wrong thing to say around those women, Annie. Something tells me they'd take it literally. And yet the men would like it. Go figure.:-)

Charles said...

SJ, what is wrong with your pink duck? It won't allow you to drop the bread or peanut, so he never gets fed. You're a bad pet owner. Bad, bad, bad. :)

Charles said...

Have a wickedly wonderful weekend, SJ. Maybe a few Bloody Marys would help. ;)

Serena Joy said...

Charles, duckie won't let you feed him? I just fed him with no problem. He be okay as long as he gets the toast every few days. LOL. Bloody Marys sounds like a good deal to me. Wicked wonderful weekend to you, too.:-)
