I was writing on another list I'm on, telling my story and concluded with

As Ennis says in "Brokeback Mountain, " "That's how come me end up here."  (I love that syntax.)

I didn't get any comments on it, but felt connected to myself and you anyway.  :)


BTW, this is one of my favorite threads in all of Brokiedom.

What can you say?  When a phrase is right, it's right.

Hah, actually one time I was in my Humanites class at TAFE and I was reading something on human rights it was to do with the Vietnam war and people being arrested for not allowing themselves to be drafted into it by tearing their papers up and other students were either in the library catching up on work (because it was almost the very last day of the very last week of the end of the course just with Christmas around the corner). And when I read that about the Vietnam war I said out loud well more under my breath "this is a goddamn bitch of an unsatisfactory situation" and Cate who is a sort of friend in that we were not really close but we both were the oldest there and we got along very well. She was reading the same thing, and she replied with "I agree".

I tend to use that quote in any situation that is....well, a goddamn bitch, these days. And also, at home, now I never used to swear as much when I was younger. However as I got older and learned more about life, I've automatically become more sarcastic and ruder. Anyway, I was in the kitchen using one of our Mundial knives for which my sister's boyfriend keeps really sharp. At one point I forgot almost how sharp they were and cut my thumb open. When I did that I said quite loudly because it hurt "son of a whoreson bitch". However this time my sister heard me and said "Kat?!" then looked at me with a look on her face that was something like  :o. I then said "Eh I cut my thumb" and held it up and stopped the bleeding then went back to what I was doing.

And no, I'm not trying to earn bonus points, honestly.  ;D
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are missing.

If all is not lost, then where is it?

I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

My husband and I use two:  He always says "you're sleeping on your feet like a horse".  And when we are getting, ahem, intimate, I say, "what are you waiting on cowboy, the mating call?".  Just a wee 'in' joke!

well i always say about my kids "i've got two little girls" or "they smile alot"....and i even say it with an accidental southern drawl

and if i'm working on a design for work, or rearranging my furniture, i say "that don't look right"

and if i'm cleaning out my kids' room, or taking out  the garbage i say "this smells like cat piss or worse".

when my hubby goes to work i say "see ya for supper"

and i stick my feet on his lap and say "i'm tryin' to get a foot rub... dummy"

my daughter had a friend over the other day, and she said her name was melissa and i said "your folks just stop at melissa?"

lol


i could go on for ever. ;D
