Just So You Know...

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Since the last two days have been story filled perhaps today we should go a little lighter. How about another installment of “just so you know?”

You already know I have vertigo so let me point out I am composing this with my head braced. I did not know my head weighed so much. Well on with it…

Just so you know… I’ll be late making the rounds today and I’ll explain later.
Just so you know… my favorite color; I don’t have one. If I have to pick, I pick the three primary colors. From those colors the sky is the limit.
Just so you know… I own 30 pairs of jeans and my favorite pair has no seat or knees but they button and stay on, so I still wear them.
Just so you know… I love sunrise. Makes me all warm inside and gives me hope. If a ball full of gas can shine, so can I.
Just so you know… I hate bullies. Don’t make me pick up a stick and chase you.
Just so you know… I like my tin foil alien-calling hat.
Just so you know… Sherlock Holmes and Charlie Chan are my favorite detectives.
Just so you know… I once made an obscene phone caller hang up on me. He said talk dirty…
Just so you know… tranquil gardening is an oxymoron. No such thing as tranquil gardening, at least in my yard.
Just so you know… I pierced my own ears. Needle, ice and alcohol. The ice hurt and no, the alcohol was for the hole I put in my head not drinking.
Just so you know… I love the BLUES and it never makes me blue.
Just so you know… I barter. Love the fact most everything is negotiable.
Just so you know… I’m collecting my anonymous comments. One day I’m going to expose them all!
Just so you know… You guys are the best!

In closing I’d like to add that the new “Comment System” blogger has added seems to be working rather well. What do you think? And.. does anyone know how to translate a comment from another language?

I have a busy day, so for now I will wish you a happy hump day and carry on.

30 pairs of jeans?!? Wow - I'm guessing this means you've stayed in the same size for a loooong time (or, that you are size jumping), because that would take me about 30 years to accumulate. Okay, maybe only 15.

And Google translator usually does the trick for simple translations, though I rarely bother with spam. If people can read what I write, they can also comment in English (though I make an exception for Norwegian, since I can understand that...).

Just so you know, I love your just so you knows ;)

I love this; So sorry you are still
not right! I need to go back and catch up on your other posts. I think my computer needs to be reformatted, the hard drive isn't happy. I have seen blue n' back up this today...augh!

I also made an obscene caller, hang up...I had a whistle. I knew who it was~ Good for you!!!

YOU are tough, piercing your own ears. I had mine done, went back to school. It was my b-day, had gym, the volleyball hit me in the ear and had to go back after school was over. I had lunch and then study hall, so my Mom came and took me! Surprise, let's put more holes in my head! lol

oooh, threatening comment exposure..I'm so not sacred, right now~ ;-D should i be?! Yes, probably...

Hope you are better soon; Any chance this could be a middle ear infection?! YOU might need some meds. xXx

Love the bullies and the obscene caller! I'm thinking I'd get along just fine with you.

I have a pair of shorts that's ripped in the front and the pocket is gone. My wife laughs when I wear them because I forget and pocket my keys and they fall out the bottom.

And just so you know, I'm with hats like you are with pants. My kids stole about ten of them and I still have a stack next to the bed and in the closet and tucked between the seats in both cars, just in case I go out and forget my dang hat.

Well, now I want to see a photo of your tinfoil hat!

Nothing on my body is pierced. Watching the scene in Terror Train where the creepy guy pulls out Jamie Lee Curtis' earrings pretty much ended any desire I had to poke holes in my body.

I didn't realize Blogger had a new comment system! Google has a translation tool (translate.google.com) and there is also babelfish, among other online translators. They should give you the gist of things, unless the sentence is complicated or uses obscure idioms. If you have a general idea of the syntax of a language but just lack the vocabulary, you can generally parse out where the translator ran amok and use an online dictionary such as wordreference or reverso.

p.s.: for things like idioms and slang, the wordreference forums are very helpful (wordreference.com)

Jules, these posts ROCK. I can't believe you made an obscene caller hang up. Oh wait. Since they're most likely cowards, yes I can. Too funny.

I love the blues, too. For the electric ones, the louder the better. I LOVE barter. I wish the world would go back to barter, we'd all be so much happier.

Great post, ~that rebel, Olivia
P.S. Get well!

That's some pretty crazy information. I had been thinking about doing a post on those weird anonymous spam comments. If you are talking about translating the Chinese looking comments, I've trying doing a few on Google translator and the translation usually makes no sense or seems to be untranslatable.

What comment change? Anyway, just so you know, I love your statements. Some were Ouch! (Ear piercing) Some were WOW! (Obscene caller) Some cool. (30 pairs, huh?)

I have a tin foil alien hat too. Do you know Kane and Kodos? Good friends of mine from the galxy Xyanjirosh sector 9.
