I was trying to arrange meetings for my boss yesterday and said, without thinking, "It's like tryin' ta see the Pope" - and with the faintest trace of a Midwest accent too! (People do look at you a little strangely when you do that in the UK... :-\)
Will you stop playing with that radio of yours, I'm trying to get to sleep!

I have been having difficulty meeting up with my mate in america, in IM lately, due to the time difference, said what a bitch of an unsatisfactory situation it is, and meeting up with her is like seeing the Pope.

Hi Dev......
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

The one I'm using the most lately is "tent don't look right"; I'm even starting to say it when things do look right because, well, I just love to say it!!

I had occasion the other evening to say 'I sure didn't know we was gonna get into this again.'

It was completely in context, and no further details will be forthcoming!!

This is actually a BetterMostism. I sent an email thanking my boss for a Friday funny she sent me, and I actually signed it, "FRiend Lee." I noticed my mistake before I actually clicked the send button, though!!

I was having a small argument with my husband last night, and to express how I felt about him I called him "Bob Nasty" .....(his name is Bob)....

The look he gave me was like "what in the hell did she just call me?".....and even though I was angry, I broke out laughing at both what I had just said, and the look he gave me.
