I got to use another Brokieism, yay :D.

Last night the girls and we were watching Juno on TV (recommended BTW, lovely movie!).
The cat suddenly got one of his "I MUST kill something" fits and started to chase his own tail, balancing on the armrest of the couch while doing so. It was so funny to watch, as he slipped from the armrest multiple times, but always went back up there :laugh:. And when he cought his tail, he bit into it. Stupid cat ::) ;).

Anyway, we all didn't want to miss something from the movie, but also wanted to watch the cat. My daughter made a comment about it, and I stated that it's some high-class entertainment fer sure. :D

Once again, Chrissi, we're living parallel lives. I was just coming here to report that I said "Sounds like some high-class entertainment" to my son regarding some funny thing the dog did.

Oh, that's a good one. I always love when I get to use that Brokeism! My Brokeism of the day is I got three cracked vertebrates! Not cracked actually, but twisted, and pressing on some nerves in my neck. Not high-class entertainment for sure, but I get to have some physical therapy and extra rest while it's healing. Let me tell you that spending 14 hours driving would not be a good idea with cracked vertebrae. Jack was so devoted to Ennis to do that.

Coincidentally, I was listening to a favorite song by Mark Knopfler, Speedway at Nazareth, and in it he sang of driving from Phoenix to Nazareth (PA) with three cracked vertebrae.

A quinella is when you bet on two horses to run first and second.

I find Brokieisms in the most unlikely places. Last night I was reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, volume I, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and on page 653, Sherlock is analyzing some handwriting on a note written by two hands, and remarks on the "bold, strong hand of the one, and the other rather broken-backed..."!

Then, this morning, I was working out while listening to NPR's "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" (August 7 edition) on my ipod. There was a hilarious exchange about the proposed plan to do a biopic of Justin Beiber, who is all of 16 years old, and who the director might be. They speculated how Chris Nolan, Clint Eastwood, James Cameron, Kathryn Bigelow and other directors might approach the daunting project, and then played a song about catching "Beiber fever", hehe!

WWDTM was pretty funny, also with a segment on Warren Buffett and Bill Gates personally calling their fellow billionaires to ask them to pledge to donate some of their billions to charity. Peter Seigel referred to them as Warren Gates, and the panel responded with excitement about a Warren + Bill marriage, pleased that they didn't waste any time after the overturn of Prop 8!!

Not my use of a Brokieism, but here's a post of mine from the In the New Yorker Thread:

Quote
Well, here's a familiar phrase!

Today while I eat lunch I'm reading William Finnegan's "Letter from Tijuana" in the October 18 issue. Describing the retired army colonel who had been given the top police job in Tijuana, Finnegan writes, "Leyzaola himself was, unmistakably, the new stud duck in town."

That's so cool, to find a Brokieism so unexpectedly. And even in the New Yorker, which has itself gained a Brokie connection through the aforementioned thread.
