So we've all heard of people being "deep", "thick-headed", "so last year", "obtuse"....etc, etc, etc...

These types of words worm their way into the mainstream media, and eventually become common words or phrases we end up using on a daily basis.....until the next great buzz word comes along.

Ok, I wouldn't exactly call some of them great, but they're words.....and they buzz around our lives for a while.

So what's the next buzz word that will invade our placid, boring vocabulary, and make our sentences sparkle with the light of a thousand bright stars?

I believe it is "vapid".

Vapid? What the hell is vapid?

Well dictionary.com describes vapid in the following way:
1. lacking or having lost life, sharpness, or flavor; insipid; flat: vapid tea.
2. without liveliness or spirit; dull or tedious: a vapid party; vapid conversation.

The main reason why I believe this is the next buzz word, is that for the last two days, I have heard this word used on two seperate television shows.

Now hearing a word two days in a row shouldn't necessarily make it the next buzz word.

That's true.

But previous to these last two days, I had heard this word probably a total of 4 times in my entire life!

Maybe it's where I was brought up. Maybe the calibre of people I hang around with don't have the best of vocabularies. Maybe I hadn't heard of this word until I was well into my 20's!! :)

Whichever way you look at it, this word has cropped up twice in two days, on popular television shows, on network TV!!

This isn't coincidence. The writers of these shows probably hang out together in coffee shops or night clubs, and they talk. They talk about their shows, and drop new vocabulary like it was yesterday's rancid milk (sounded good, not sure what that meant...hehe).

Ok that sounded like I have a grudge against TV show writers, but I don't.

But bark my words, "vapid" is soon to inundate our lives like.....like a.....well like a new buzz word.

Look for it, listen for it, and come back and tell me about it.

And here's some YouTube videos to take us out......

These are 2 videos from Homestarrunner.com (funny stuff, I love that site)

And lastly, a video I find rather funny, but some of you will hate me for laughing at. But since we don't know each other, it doesn't much matter if you hate me for it.

Dogs and Cats Living Together......

I know that plagerism is n't very good. But if you admit to using someone else's words, does that still count?

Ah well, ultimately we all plagerise to some degree, this post will just be quite a bit more than most of the time.

Here are some funny items from other people's blogs:

The Cat’s Diary:

Day 983 of my captivity.

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.

They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.

The only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an Attempt to disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it clearly demonstrates my capabilities. However, they merely made condescending comments about what a “good little hunter” I am. Bastards!

There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my confinement was due to the power of “allergies.” I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage.

Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow, but at the top of the stairs.

I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and Snitches. The dog receives special privileges. He is regularly released, and seems to be more than willing to return. He is obviously Retarded.

The bird must be an informant. I observe him communicate with the Guards regularly. I am certain that he reports my every move. My captors have arranged protective custody for him in an Elevated Cell, so he is safe.

For now.

Anonymous Self Identification

So being anonymous has it's advantages, as well as it's drawbacks.

I don't have to worry about people making fun of my grammar in real life, but I also can't really let you all into my life entirely.

Maybe one day I will come out of the preverbial blogger-closet, but for now, anonymity will be where I dwell.

That said, why not give you a little peek into the blogger-closet?

What about me?

Well let's see.....

I force myself to be a morning person.
I spend far too much on coffee in the mornings.
I am a procrastinator.
I love books.
I love pens, and must always have a lot of them around.
I love being in Office Depot, the plethora of supplies make me happy.
Bacon = happiness
My new laptop cost more than I should have spent.
Dogs....not cats.
Breakfast food is good any time of the day.
I am happy where I work.....with the job, the people, and the flexibility.
The only food I really don't care for is beets (in the jar).
I am a natural athlete, and pick up any sport fairly easily.
I am somewhere between an Athiest, and an Agnostic.
I've realized that doing good things, does make you feel good inside.
I am a good liar.
I have a slight laundry fetish.
I think I am a good driver.

That's enough for now. I'll add to the list another day.

Now for the mindless ending you always look forward to:

The road to recovery starts with admitting you have a problem.

I have a problem.

Nope, not recovered yet. There has to be more to that saying than just admitting something.

Well, my problem is my addiction.

Yes I am an addict.

I am addicted to my PVR!

I also have PVR-Record-O-Phobia (the fear that I will not have enough room on my PVR to record my programs, as well as the fear of not wanting to delete any programs, because I might want to actually watch one of them again some time).

That in itself is a little liberating. But it doesn't solve my problem.

Come to think of it, I'm not so sure there is a solution to my problem.....other than selling my PVR.

ha ha ha ha ha ha,....ok let's get back to reality.

I can see down the road I will be upgrading to PVR's with bigger and bigger hard drives. Will it ever end?

I do have a couple movies (still saved on my PVR) I watch at least once per week. And no, I will not divulge the titles of these movies. They are not the cream of the crop as movies go, and none of them have been nominated for any sort of awards to my knowledge.
They do make me laugh though. So they will not be erased.

In addition to the problems listed above, I also cannot find enough time to actually sit down and watch all the programs I have recorded. So inevitably I delete shows which are a few weeks old and I really cannot see myself watching at this point.

It's strange though.....when those shows were airing, I was all excited and setting up the recording. But now, I can simply erase them with just a few clicks on the remote. Out of sight, out of mind I suppose. I won't know what would have been good about those shows npw that they are gone.

Also today I don't feel like finishing thoughts off in any way shape or form. This post has lost my interest, so it;s ending....

Here's some videos.....
