At some point I came across the blog Goulash (where did I come across it?) and started reading it because I love that word. I feel the same about the word "aardavrk", is there a blog called Aardvark? there should be. Goulash is pretty dam funny, and though he doesn’t post much, when he does it usually makes me laugh out loud. His most recent is worth checking out, here’s an excerpt:
There are a lot of these overused phrases, but there are 2 that I hear all of the time that contribute absolutely nothing to a conversation. They are "it is what it is" and "I know, right?" Let’s tackle these one at a time.
"It is what it is." Isn’t that obvious? If it isn’t what it is, I’m barricading my front door and hiding in the closet because I no longer have any idea what in the hell is going on.
"I know, right?" This one is trickier. I usually hear this when a person is agreeing with me, but it still confuses me because it ends with a question. I can just see some terrible mystery movie where the femme fatale has given the brain surgeon an amnesia drug. He’s looking at his scalpel right before the surgery starts, certain it looks familiar, and he whimpers, "I know…. right?" And then he bursts into tears. In most conversations, yes, you know and you’re right that you know.
Good stuff, right? Check out the whole post, it gets funnier…

I have to say, I’m tired tired tired of all the MW boring tribute crap…
That said, I love Jay Smooth, and he uses MW’s death as a platform to meditate on camera awareness, brand management and what filmed images will mean to the future…and he does it really well…be sure to stick around for the end to see the woman dancing bit…

Hey, did you guys know that one of my sister’s closest friends used to be the Celebrity Assistant for Al Franken? It’s true! One time my sister called me up and said "Guess what I’m doing?" and I’m all like "How the hell would I know?" and she goes "Well…I’m eating Al Franken’s ice cream!"
Which made me go "Wha?!"
It seems that Al was going on some kind of diet and had to get rid of all the ice cream he had in the house. He invited his assistant to eat it, and she, not being able to handle the quantity, called upon my sister to help. Crazy. KT, you correct me if I got that wrong. But I should say that if it is wrong, I’m still going to tell the story like that, ‘cuz it has a nice vibe to it…
I also remember reading a biography about Saturday Night Live and there was one great story about Al & his writing partner trying to come up with a sketch and taking LSD…both of them began imitating Nixon, making "V" signs and pretending they had tremendous jowls, and harrumphing. They did it all night long, two weird Nixons. What a weird image.
Plus don’t even get me (or Al) started on how much coke he’s reported to have done.
And now he’s Mr. Senator. And apparently he’s going to play it straight, but we’ll always know him as the ice-cream loving LSD-Nixon cokehead. And if we ever forget that that’s who he used to be, why we can just go to the videotape…

70 year-old Buddhist monk Hua Chi has been praying in the same spot at his temple in Tongren, China for over 20 years. His footprints, which are up to 1.2 inches deep in some areas, are the result of performing his prayers up to 3000 times a day. Now that he is 70, he says that he has greatly reduced his quantity of prayers to 1,000 times each day.
