Keep on creepin' on . . .

I was so tired tonight and so ready to go to bed by like 9 o'clock so I knew that I needed to sit down and knock out my blog quickly. That, of course, led to a two hour internet search for a new Thanksgiving background for my page.

This is how I work, people.

So this blog post will be short and sweet. I have two things to say . . .

FIRST . . . I learned a new expression today from my friend Julia. She told me that she was on Google "creeping on" a guy. As she is a senior in high school and MUCH cooler than I am, I made her stop and tell me what that meant. It sounded like something I needed to know. ANYWAY, she explained that when you look at people's facebook conversations or cyber-stalk them, you are "creeping on" them. Isn't that the greatest? I love it mainly because I "creep on" people a lot and like the sound of saying "I was creeping on him" better than "I was stalking him within an inch of a temporary restraining order." It sounds MUCH more hip and a little less scary.

And I'm gonna use it in my next deposition to see if these prisoners know THAT one. I'll have more lingo than THEM for once.

SECOND . . . I have added a "Mixed Metaphor of the Week" block in right margin of my blog because I LOVE when people mix expressions or just get an expression completely wrong. Since they always crack ME up, I want to share them with YOU! I'm going to try to update this every Monday so make sure you check it out!!

Ok - I'm off to bed!!

Well, after I creep on a few of y'all . . .

Oh Catherine. I will be happy to supply you with mixed/messed-up metaphors. I have a co-worker who does this all the time. When I have attempted to correct her, (as is my duty), she just says, "That's what my momma used to say" as if that makes it okay.
