Image via WikipediaBen and I just had a humorous exchange which I thought you might enjoy. Here it is:
Me: "My stomach feels weird. I must have eaten something funny yesterday."
Ben: "How do you eat something funny?"
Me: "You know, like when you realize you've just eaten spoiled clown...."
Me: "I was hungry so I started gnawing on Jim Carrey's leg..."
Me: "I didn't want to, but I starving and Norm MacDonald was right there!"
Yeah, I went there with the cannibalism reference. One of my mom's favorite jokes is about cannibals: Two cannibals are chowing down on their freshly caught dinner, a clown. One turns to the other and asks, "Does this taste funny to you?"
In other news, I didn't win that blogger competition, but it's cool because I still get to compete in another round with another post. Congratulations to the winner-- it was a really close match! I took 45% of the vote and I would like to thank the one-hundred-thirty-something people who voted for me. You rock! Speaking of winning, my dear friend Apfel at Apfelicious Amplifications gave me an award this morning, just for being a good bloggy friend. How sweet is she?! You should all check out her blog if you haven't already.
In morbid news, Ben and I are planning on blessing our apartment tonight with a sage burning ceremony. Have any of you ever done something like this before? Any tips you want to pass along to a first-time burner? I want to ward away the ghosties that keep bothering Sookie, my precious kitty. I'm also not too keen on her staring at something I cannot see just over my head. Go ahead, call me superstitious! I've always been fascinated with the macabre.
