Coldcrack

So I have this class that switched spots and now I've got to go out to the burbs by 7, today and every friday. Ugh. Plus, I'm so busy mid-week that I can't even keep up on the blogs, I've got hundreds sitting in my queue which I'll try to get through on the weekend. Two Fridays in a row now with no snippets - what's happening? I sat down and tried to bang some out yesterday, but I haven't felt so creative lately, and nothing really forthcame. It's all part of the bleakness of winter I suppose, the almost constant gray skies and snow, snow, snow. Cold. Cold is what spouse accused me of being the other day when I stopped by to pick up the car at his work. Apparently I didn't run around greeting and kissing everyone as I should have. Mind you, he works in an office. According to him, it's not that kind of office. I told him if people think I'm cold, that's their tough toenails, as anyone who knows me knows it's not true. Perhaps when I'm in work mode, I'm more "professional" which could be construed as cold. Yesterday when I went in, I made sure to kissy-kissy, but I didn't like it. All part of the constant negotiation that is marriage, I suppose.

I keep chuckling over the picture over at Joemygod of the Fox news headline: Crack Found in Man's Buttocks Apparently, a drug dealer hid the crack in his ass and was caught and arrested. The thing that makes me laugh is that the guy who wrote it was probably totally oblivious to the double-entendre. I've had things like that come out of my mouth. I wish I could remember one to regale you with, but I'm not even fully caffeinified yet. ... Okay, must go. Sorry for the paltry post, I'll try to do better next week.

Maybe snippets needs to move to Saturday?

Anytime you make a post, I smile as I read it. You always manage to shine through with your love of life and the vivid colors of imagination that compose you.

Thank You,

You, cold? Surely Serge jests.
You crack me up most mornings when I read your blog.

You guys take care and do something absolutely fun this weekend.

Some of the funniest headlines are those that the writer created without a clue to the double meanings.

I'm with you on office manner. My place is very informal but I still don't get all "kissy kissy" as you put it. Maybe it's a Quebec thing.

Snooze said...

Dude, you are the most regular poster. You never have to apologize to your readers!

Now stop complaining about your man's loving coworkers and pucker up.

Chicken said...

I don't like being kissy kissy, either, and I've been called cold.

It's just my work mode. If people don't like it, I will tell THEM what to kiss.

Heh.

Have a fabulous Friday!

I agree with Snooze. You are the most the prolific poster I read, and I really admire your effort to post something almost every single day. No one is witty and erudite and feeling fabulous every single day. I love all the flavours that are Torn.

What forthcame was very funny and not cold at all. I hate kissy-kissy. When a fellow co-worker of mine was asked why she was so cold she said I keep my warmth for my lover at home.
So the next time the drug dealer will hide the blow in his nose? I feel so much better having visited here today, thanks Torn. Ed

He says "cold" like that is a bad thing. I don't understand.

Java said...

This weeks' posts have been most fantastic. The bearded clam yesterday (OMG) and you with your foot in your mouth the day before. Cut yourself some slack! You've earned a day to float. Anyway, this one isn't so bad itself. There is something about the cold cold cold gray gray gray that makes one dull dull dull dull dull dull... But you're an interesting sort of dull, my dear.

"Part of the constant negotiation that is marriage" is right! A friend of ours calls it "coin of the realm." That is, what does your spouse consider a loving act? That's how you show him love. Use his coin of the realm to make him feel loved. (That includes making his colleagues feel liked too, apparently. Maybe he just wants them to know what a great guy he's got.)

My hubby considers a meal cooked for him is an act of love. I consider it food. But every so often I'll give him what he wants because of what it means to him. Small price to keep him feeling loved. Who cares what anyone else thinks?

I'm impressed that you find something to write almosrt every day.

Smooch!

Lewis said...

What? No kissy kissy? Me either. I mean, we're both nice guys, good looking, sociable, happy and all of that....but i can see that neither of us are good at kissing up. it's so overrated.

Marc said...

Of course the double entendre was intentional. Why do you think he didn't use "cocaine" Fox newswriters may have some reprehensible political views, but they ain't stupid...
