Besides saying "pop" for soda or Coke, most Hoosiers say "ketchup" for catsup. Because I'm all about conducting broad-based (no pun intended) accurate research on phonetics, please identify your region and pronunciation of the red stuff that goes on fries in order to represent your peeps on the most legitimate scientific record known to man, my mom blog.
And by the way, judging by my past question about pronouncing "meme," I have concluded that none of us really knows how to say that except the person who made it up. The responses were hilarious. My favorites were "Mame," as in "You coax the blues right out of the horn, Mame, You charm the husk right off of the corn, Mame." But a close 2nd was the French "e" (accent egu) that rhymes with "creme de la creme." Finally, I enjoyed "mi-mi" because that sounds like you're referring to Aunt Mimi.
So basically, "meme" now conjures up for me pictures of a middle-aged French aunt.
If you're not caught up with season 4, look away, look away! OK, did you figure out that Kate's baby was AARON? I did not. I thought the reason Jack didn't want to see him was because he was Sawyer's baby. Of course, that's what the writers wanted me to think. And then, don't ask me why, I thought that the baby appeared to have something physically wrong with him, and maybe Jack couldn't handle that. Those writers are messing with our minds, people.
However, I just posted last week at Lisa's site that I think Aaron has a bigger part in the storyline than we previously may have thought. So pin a rose on my nose.
So, this begs the question: Is Claire in the coffin? [Cue strange harmonic music.]
I'm a little scared, because I'm finding myself agreeing with Simon this season. I'm watching my Tivo'd girls comp right now, and so far, I am thoroughly underwhelmed. That Spinning Wheel song? I didn't like that at all, and Randy and Paula loved it.
I enjoyed Randy's alliterative "s" exclamations like "You slayed that song! You smashed it! You scooped those notes!"
And remember how Simon laughed at Paula's reference to contestants' colors (as in auras)? What was up with his reference to Brooke being all sunshiny and "yellow?"
I've got to stop watching now and get ready for work, so I can't read anything today that tells who was cut. (Hint: don't tell me.)
I have a post I'm sitting on because it's a little controversial and confrontational. What do you think?
