Ouch

August 17, 2006 at 3:38 pm | Posted in More than you ever wanted to know about me..., The Sweet Life | 13 Comments

Just five coincident facts that will have my pumpwearing pals wincing in sympathy:

1. Doorknob
2. 23″ Tubing
3. Carrying hot coffee
4. Cute, ass-enhancing, relatively new (and now elegantly coffee-stained) jeans
5. Formerly off-white carpet

P.S. Is anyone else disturbed by word verification combinations that include the letter “Q” not followed by “U”? Or am I just unspeakably uptight?

  1. While doorknobs are indeed nifty inventions, and I never use 23″ tubing (’cause I hate it), and I’m not a coffee drinker (aka, a freak), and I don’t own any cute, ass-enhancing jeans (and a funny picture leaps to mind by the mere mention of such), I still feel your pain.

    And PS, I love unspeakably uptight. I’m the same way about so many things (though not so much on the word verification bit). E.g., “PIN number.” I can’t put into words the physical discomfort I feel when I hear such things. It drives me CrAzY!

  2. Oh man – that’s a recipe for disaster right there. Suckage.

    And yes, that is quite unspeakably uptight…

  3. Been there, done that, but with knobs on an oven. Oy.

  4. Doorknobs haunted me for a full six months after I started pumping. It wasn’t until I moved the site to my thigh that my ratio of Pump:Doorknob Chaos subsided.

    And yes, I am tremendously traumatized by the word verifications. I can’t help but try and pronounce them to myself, which makes my head hurt and my mouth get tangled. šŸ™‚

  5. Oh my. I’m not a pumper, but ow!

    And Kevin, I feel your PIN number pain. I’m a copy editor and proofreader. I live in the unspeakably uptight world…for me, that’s where perfection lies!

  6. Yikes! Sorry. I hate 23inch tubing too.

  7. Ouch! And damn about the jeans.

    Re: word verification, I love to try to make words out of them but my husband hates it as he is from Adelaide where all the anal Australians are created.

  8. OUCH! Drawer knobs are my bane.

  9. ouch!!!!

    & of course my word verification has a Q with no U – hmmmmm

  10. OK..it wasn’t until I read the comments that I had a hell of a chance of understanding what the f*ck you were talking about. Gotcha. And as for the work verification thing….I hate when they put q in because I can’t tell it apart from g. Well, I can now…and wouldn’t you know that there is both an q and g to help me out this time!

  11. BTW – I am not commenting on your ass because I think it will get me into trouble not only with phili, but Cheryl as well!

  12. Just one more comment if I may,….I thought you meant shoes when you said, Pump wearing pals…and I just couldn’t see you in pumps! I know, I know….

  13. My word verification has a u with no q. Fine. But, yeah, a q with no u? Very upsetting! I also, for the record, don’t believe in those Scrabble words that have a q with no u.
