Do you dislike pop up boxes as much as I do? I know they’re supposed to drive signups for your newsletter and all that, but I won’t have them on my website. They annoy me every time I have to click the X in the top right corner of one of them. Stop, just stop with the boxes.
I got used to the hemorrhoid commercials, then the erectile dysfunction commercials, and now the woman telling me that instead of a good book, wouldn’t I rather have a warm man? (Well, duh.) But the other day, I was blindsided by something that I never, ever expected to see on the TV screen.
Discussion of a personal deforestry project.
I’m trying to be as delicate and Southern Belle as I can be here, so I expect you to read between the lines. On a recent television show, the woman was talking about getting a Sicilian. I had to look it up.
The definition: A Sicilian is a wax of the pubic area where the only hair remaining leaves a triangular shape.
Okay, so maybe I’ve strayed out of Southern Belle territory. I confess, I was a little shocked. Lord luv a duck. We’re discussing waxing in public now? I amused myself by trying to figure out what was left to expose on TV. We’ve done calluses and warts, shaving and plucking, facial hair, underarm smells, and toenail fungus. We’ve had that “fresh” feeling, but we haven’t experienced jock itch yet (or maybe I missed that). We’ve had every disease known to man and drugs where the side effect recitation is longer than the pluses about the medication.
CHORF – I heard the definition of this word and just started laughing. I think this word deserves to be popularized.
It stands for: Cliquish, Holier-than-thou, Obnoxious, Reactionary, Fanatics.
I’ve run into four author websites in the past week or so where I couldn’t figure out who the author was. They were named cutesy names (like Warm Fuzzies – ahem), but you had to dig to find the name of the author.
I never did find out why the authors would bury their names and books on their own websites.
How about you? Have you noticed similar sites?
