Can you say "Creepy" boys and girls?


These are the mannequins in Marshall Fields/Macy's Children's department. Seriously. Someone thought these were a good idea.

Here are some long awaited, and quite anticlimactic pictures of my apartment.

Floorplan and furniture ideas...

Peety, we hardly knew ye

I was out on my balcony this morning taking pictures for an upcoming blog entry, when I noticed that a cute little bird was dead on the floor. I have ruled it a suicide. There was no note.

Sadly, the first thing I thought was "I gotta get me a picture o' that!"
So here you go.

You're in focus!

One of the writers at work has a blog called
'A year in Pictures of Working'

I'm in it a few times, but purely by accident so far. His last post though was about a friend's birthday party. I happened to take a picture as he took his picture. So, basically, my blog is so lame that I have to live vicariously through his blog by taking a picture of him taking a picture.

Plus I got a new camera (thanks in big part to a very generous gift card from my cousin Shari and her husband Joe) and it's awesome!!

Real mature, Innis!

Sorry it took a while for me to post another entry. Notice that I didn’t say “write” another entry, as I wrote a few since the last that were gobbled by an evil and apparently hungry spell checker. Discouraging to say the least, so I gave up for a while, not thinking I could re-create the comedy gold I had written before. Now where was I…

I stayed home from work last Wednesday when I had some major stomach problems about 4am that morning. I didn’t sleep at all because of the cramping and running to the bathroom. Who knew sitting on a toilet could be so exhausting? I’ll think twice before I have the meatball sub at subway. Well, maybe I just won’t get all the hot peppers next time. Ouch.

Speaking of fun crap, I’m actually doing some bona fide 3d character animation at work. It may or may not be used in the new project we are doing, since stuff is up in the air right now, but I’d say the chance of usage is 80 percent…75-80. Here is a montage I made with some of the experimental expressions I’ve done for this character. I’m having a blast. Enjoy.

If urine my neighborhood...

This is where I live. Isn't it frikkin sweet!?!

Oh. I have a couch now. Well, a love-seat and a chair anyway. Make that a super comfortable love-seat and chair. I wanted to get a sleeper for all you possible visitors, but it was just too big for my living room. So bring your inflatable mattress.

Urine Idiot!

Today, I actually said to someone "If worse comes to worse" instead of "If push comes to shove" or "worst case scenario". I've been doing that a LOT lately, just totally screwing up or combining cliche phrases. A few favorites are "Half of one, six-dozen of another" instead of "Six of one, half-dozen of another" and "Let's start at ground one" combining "Back to square one" and "ground zero" and maybe even "start at the top". Sometimes I make no sense at all, but I think people know what I mean and refrain from correcting me just to be nice. Or they think I'm a brilliant innovator in phrase turning, like Fergie from the Black eyed peas, who recently made up the word "pronunciated", a combillection of "pronounce" and "enunciate." Combillection? See. I can do it too!

There's got to be a term for my recent word problems. For instance, there are malapropisms, which means using the wrong, but similar sounding, word. Kinda like george McFly saying "You are my density." Then there are spoonerisms, which involve transposition of the initial sounds of two words in a phrase, such as "Hake a Tike" or "Deed the fog". Unfortunately, I do this way too much as well, but it's not what I'm looking for. Hmmm...There are Tom Swifties, where an adverb punnily describes something someone says. For instance, "My doctor had to remove my left ventricle" said Tom half-heartedly. Hmmm... solecisms, or incorrect grammar usage... that ain't it. ;)

Oh well, I suppose you could just say I've been mixing metaphors, but that would be like taking candy from the horse's mouth.

Urinal Etiquette

I'm SO mad right now. (well, not really, but it's much more dramatic to start it that way)
I had this great idea for a bit, whether I use it for dinner conversation or a stand-up routine, whatever, and it was awesome. It was all about urinal etiquette in the men's room. You know, which urinal to choose, how to stand, where to look, etc. Coincidentally I saw a video on "You-Tube" that pretty much covered all my jokes. It's done in a sort of 'The Sims' 3D animated style, which kind of sucks, but it is pretty funny. Check it out... PG-13

Here's another attempt by someone, but I disagree with their arbitrary rules. G
