Pixies and Boogaboos

This little Pixie is the newest member of my family, my nephew's 4-month-old daughter. Isn't she a doll?

Here's a choice tidbit for conspiracy theorists. Thousands of documents have turned up in a safe in a Dallas courthouse relating to the 1963 assassination of JFK. There are bona fide documents and pieces of evidence, and then there are some highly debatable documents consisting of such things as purported transcripts of conversations between Jack Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald planning the assassination. Those documents have already been dismissed as nothing more than portions of a movie script. Allegedly, then-Dallas D.A. Henry Wade had contracted to make a movie about the assassination. That does beg the question why, if such were the case, Wade never made the movie and the movie props were locked away in a safe with legitimate evidence. Hmmmm. That's a conundrum. And a potential boogaboo.

Here's another question: why does Blogger's Boogaboo spell-checker no longer work?

These are my newest glasses, the ones I'm keeping.

Oh, and then there's this -- adorable wind chimes I got for Valentine's Day. I love frogs!

And these characters are a felonious gang of Words Gone Wild rounded up by TWISTED LINGUISTICS today.

dessert island - Piece of cake rising from a sea of milk, often featuring caramel cliffs and cherry-strewn beaches.

we received your signed contract back in our officer - Okay, let me see if I can sort this out. I believe that what happened was that an author signed a contract, then sued for breach, and court personnel used it for toilet paper.

And these are for you guys to try, convict, and sentence:

GIGO Grammar:
family for he/she to grow up in
Her and me went to the writers conference.

Some of the more, er, odd Google search terms I've seen lately:
Haitian voodoo chicken bones
anatomically correct rubber chickens
sum teet
her belly button sticking

She's a cutie...

These days, you could probably make a case for any story you want. I'm afraid we'll never really know the whole story.

I'm sure I contribute more than my fair share of strange google search requests when I look for the right picture to support a post I want to do.

Charles said...

Babies are always so cute, she's a doll.

Where was Geraldo? Isn't he supposed to be in on things like this safe opening? Was he was contemplating his belly button sticking out? I hope he was choking on an anatomically correct rubber chicken bone. I think that the mystery of Kennedy's assassination will never be solved.

I keep harping on the use of Firefox, which has its own spell checking, but I don't think anybody listens unless they already are using it. It even has its own dictionary you can add to.

A fine pair of glasses to make your eyes work fine, what could be finer?

I'm passing on the daffy definitions today.

Mona said...

what an adorable baby girl!!!!

I love baby girls and often wish I had one! I love dressing up little girls!

Those little large eyes are so expressive!!

Kanrei said...

I can't see the picture...unless she looks like an "X." She doesn't look like an "X" though, does she? If she does, it is a rather cute "X."

Are you telling me that JFK was not killed and not even President, but rather that the 60's were just one big movie script? It would explain quite a bit actually.

Kanrei said...

It works now. Cute drool and the baby doesn't look bad either.

Roxan said...

Looking at those last four google searches I'm inclined to think there was something kinky going on.
I noticed the spell checker too. What's up with that, I wonder.

the new vision
extension device look great!

and these two i know for sure:

compressed version of 'compact lint'; highly condensed drier fluff

misspelling of prawnography; shellfish sexuality (often deviant)

Serena Joy said...

I don't think we'll ever get the whole story, either, VE. I dismiss the "magic bullet" theory as fantasy, but we'll never know what really happened.

I think Miss Baby's a cutie, too.:)

I love those strange Google terms and get a huge kick out of collecting them.:-)

Thanks, Charles. She is a little dollbaby.:)

I don't know where Geraldo was, but he should have been there. He probably was laid back doing all those things you mentioned. I use Firefox, but I don't switch to browser-only to use its features. I probably should.

Thanks, Mona. I always wanted a little girl, but never had one. I've enjoyed spoiling my nieces, though.:)

I'm glad you finally got the drool instead of the X, Kan. The drool is cuter.

I think you're on to something with your 60s theory. This bears further investigation!:)

Yeah, Roxan, I think there was a little kink going on. Since I've talked about rubber chicken Voodoo more than once, I guess that's where the search terms came into play. You'd think that somebody looking for porn would be able to spell it, though.:-)

Serena Joy said...

Thank you, /t. I'm pretty happy with my vision extension device. Keeps me from walking into a lot of walls.

Oooooo! Deviant shellfish Prawnography! How divine (as opposed to deveined). You are a man after my own heart.:-) I must confess that I'm on the warpath for pygmy sloths today, though.

leelee said...

awww....no baby picture :-(

why am I not surprised that you love frogs...I do too, I have a small collection on my kitchen window and outside in my Florida room. I love that wind chime..leelee wants!!

Serena Joy said...

Oh, shoot, Leelee, I'm so sorry you're not seeing the picture. I don't know what's up with that. Kanrei couldn't see it at first, either.

You like frogs, too? I have a little collection of small frogs inside and a few big ones in various places outside.:)

G-Man said...

Remember Froggy Gremlin?
'Hiya Kids, Hiya, Hiya, Hiya'.....

How can something be in a safe unnoticed for 45 years?...Oh I forgot ....Dallas!

The grassy knoll
Jack Ruby in the police station.
I remember one of the very first elephant jokes I ever heard...
'What did the Dallas PD say, when someone spotted an elephant in a tree? Nothin, cause they didn't see it'!!
Not funny, but a sign of those times...

What an adorable neice Sherry...A Hokie???

Serena Joy said...

I don't remember Froggie Gremlin, Bubba-G. Must have been before my time. I used to know this guy who was always singing "Froggie Went A-Courtin'" to me, though. LOL.

Dallas. Geez. Don't get me started. A whole lot of stuff went on that nobody saw. One could almost deduce that Dallas law enforcement was staffed by blind people in the 60s.

Yep, they're starting that little Hokie out young. She is adorable, isn't she? I have a pink Hokie shirt myself. I don't look that cute in it.:-)

Hale McKay said...

What a cutie your, dare I say, your grand niece is.

I like your new glasses too. The better to see us with?

I too have noticed that spellchecker has been on the fritz as of late.

"dessert island- Piece of cake rising from a sea of milk, often featuring caramel cliffs and cherry-strewn beaches."

My, my, what a delicious vacation one could have there.

ThatGreenyFlower said...

I agree with ve--we'll never know the whole story of anything anymore. Crooked waters run deep? That might not be true geologically speaking, but I'm pretty sure that it's true politically.

Your specs are poppin'!

Serena Joy said...

Yeah, go ahead, Mike. You can say it. Hell, I'm old. I have a -- (let me steel myself here) grand-niece.

That isle does sound like a sweet vacation spot, doesn't it?:)

You're absolutely right, Greeny. Crooked waters do appear to run deep, politically speaking. Glad you like the specs.:)

puerileuwaite said...

Wait. JFK was ASSASSINATED? I was led to believe that he was ACCIDENTLY hit by an errant frisbee from the Grassy Knoll. Dazed by the initial hit, he awkwardly stood up to return it, and was decapitated by the overpass.

Then the same thing happened to Jayne Mansfield a year TO THE DAY later in the same spot.

This tragic sequence was - a decade later - repeated by 2-members of The Allman Brothers Band.

leelee said...

I see that beautiful baby now...ADORABLE!! and yes indeed I am a frog fan.

Serena Joy said...

I'm not positive, Puggy, but I think that when the final history is written, it'll turn out that it was Jayne Mansfield on the Grassy Knoll, then the Allman Brothers took her out. It's what happened to the Allman Bros. that will never be known.:)

Oh, good, Leelee, I'm glad you got to see the pic. We'll have to swap frog stories now.:)

Corn Dog said...

Awww, what an adorable baby. She is so cute. I want to hug her.

Love the glasses. Do we get to see them on the rest of the face?

Sling said...

She's a livin' doll serena.
Plus!..She's all bubbly! :)
I haven't had time to look into these new 'assasination' documents,but my knee jerk reaction is to discount these kinds of things from the git.
I mean,it's not like they were discovered in earthen jars near the Dead Sea..Know what I'm sayin'?

Serena Joy said...

Thanks, CD. She does look like a little huggy-pie, doesn't she? Oh, yeah, there'll be full frontal glasses shots. Eventually.:)

Thanks, Sling. She is a bubbly little thing. I concur with your knee-jerk reaction. I think I'd put more credence in those documents if they'd been discovered in jars by the Dead Sea.:-)

Liquid said...

Ok, she is soooooooooo precious!
Lovin' the glasses and crackin' up at the rubber chicken bone part!

Whooooooo! I've had a good visit here today!

Serena Joy said...

Thanks, Liquid. Hey, I'll give you a heads-up next time I'm doing Rubber Chicken Voodoo. You can grab a tiara and help me out.:)
