Conversation with my husband:
Victor: Ugh. I’m having a shitty day.
me: What’s wrong? Release your burdle unto me.
Victor: Um…my what?
me: Your burdle. it’s short for “bundle of burdens”.
Victor: That’s not a real word.
me: It is. I just used it.
Victor: Just because you say it doesn’t mean that it’s a real word.
me: Actually, it does. That’s where new words come from. I’m like the stork of new words.
Victor: Well if it’s short for “bundle of burdens” wouldn’t that be “bundens”?
me: Bundens? Don’t be ridiculous. “Bundens” is not a real word.
Victor: You make my head hurt.
me: You’re my husband. It’s the heavy burdle you have to bear.
And in other news, it’s time for the weekly wrap-up:
What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
What you missed on the internets:
- Kick-ass stuff I pinned.
- I’m a finalist in the Audie Awards in Humor. I’m probably not going to beat Stephen Colbert so I’m celebrating this now while we’re still technically tied.
- I’m a finalist in the Bloggies for a bunch of stuff, including “lifetime achievement” so I think that means if I win they send an assassin to the house.
This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:
This week’s wrap-up is sponsored by Flip Your Cats. From the makers: “Flip the Cats is simple to learn, challenging and fun; you trap and capture your opponent’s cats by placing yours around them. Place your cats on either side of your opponent’s to flip it to your colour… but on their turn, your opponent can do the same to you. FLIP YOUR CATS TO VICTORY.”
