Crazy Mixed Up Wednesday

It's Hump Day. My, how that commercial has wormed its way into the collective consciousness. What are some others that you remember from the past? "I can't believe I ate the whole thing!" "Where's the beef?" "Snap, crackle, pop!" "Mr. Whipple! Please don't squeeze the Charmin!"


I sometimes think that I could write a series of blog posts on the sayings of my mother. A sampling:

"If something says new and improved, it probably isn't."

"God stacked the deck against Adam and Eve. He put that snake in that garden."

"If your sister told you to jump out of the attic window to see if you would bounce, would you do it?"

Do you have any brilliant Mom quotes to share?


My older daughter was looking for fun things to do in Columbia/Howard County on a Tuesday night. Suggestions?


I'm getting a little tired of all these "ist" words people are throwing around on the internet. It seems we keep seeing the same tired few: statist, socialist, fascist...Let's get some variety going! Take a look at this list. Surely we can find ways to call people some more creative names, people.


There's something ironic about Whole Foods covering up an expanse of windows with murals of food. On the one hand, they were clearly 'paying for the view' when they made financial arrangements to use the space. On the other hand, they want to make sure people are paying for the food and not distracted by the view. Sheesh.


That's it for Crazy Mixed-Up Wednesday. Your assignment:

1. Old commercials we couldn't get out of our heads.

2. Things Mom said.

3. Things to do on a Tuesday night.

4. Brilliant "-ist" insults.

See you Thursday with more coherent thoughts about our community. I hope.
