| It's a poor lady's Riesling - Mood:Good|
Thursday September 19 20198:31:13 PM |
|Today, a coworker taught me what a malaphorism is. It's pushing together two sayings, sometimes creating a an absurd, abstract significance.|
-"we'll burn that bridge when we come to it"
-"give a man to fish, shame on you. teach a man to fish, shame on me"
-"don't count all your chickens in one basket"
second place: "it's not "rocket surgery"
and my favorite so far: "does the Pope sh*t in the woods?"
we talked a bit about koans and groucho marx-isms after that.
These days, especially, focused absurdity flows more logically and is more gratifying than conversation on serious topics.
Some other things that have happened..
Played D&D for the first time with partner and his buds
Pierced my ears, finally
I'm having pear cider and it tastes like some sort of wine.

A sign from the gods
Skip the romantic smooshy stuff Life update my family and boyfriend's family had odd mental health related crises simultaneously last week, in the worst bit of it we sort of updated each other, hugged and coped and it was the most healthy sad week I've ever felt a part of. Sometimes I'm away from him the first night after an extended stay together and the shift from doing the dishes together to only having the intimacy of texts and a nightly call feels unbearable.
theory: we've experienced widespread linguistic shifts to the point where the 60s and 90s have their own accents (kind of like what's now called the transatlantic in the 50s.) when it's daylight I'll find clips as examples.
