My book is now formatted and ready for me to write the dedication. Writing the book was easy, writing the synopsis was hell, writing the query was agony, writing the blurb was painful, and now writing the
dedication is proving to be the most difficult of all. You wouldn’t think a few sentences would be that hard, but it really is.
The great burger chain, Burger King, has begun test marketing a home delivery service in the Washington D.C. area. This, in my opinion, is the epitome of laziness. We now don’t have the time and energy to drive up to a window and hold our flabby arms out to grab a bag of food? Really?! This just proves how lazy we have become. Burger King will be turning us into “Whoppers” one customer at a time.
In the U.S. supporters continue their plight to get a bald Barbie manufactured while in Iran, Barbie dolls have been banned. They believe our western culture is damaging to their Islamic values as the dolls are considered promiscuous. But the good news is that soon Iranians will be able to purchase toys that mimic the U.S. spy drone they confiscated in December. They will be able to purchase these toys in a variety of colors. I’m sure this will do wonders for their Islamic values.
British Phrase of the Day – Blow Me
Blow me is short for “blow me down.” This phrase is used when someone is surprised, indicating that they could be blown down with a tiny bit of wind. In a sentence it may go something like this, “Blow me, I didn’t know you were licking the windows on the bus.” Or maybe, “I woke up this morning and there were four inches of snow in the driveway, blow me, I didn’t know we were expecting snow.” In the U.S., blow me, has a completely different meaning which
I will not go into. But I will offer some advice: Brit’s should NEVER use this phrase when visiting the U.S. and should be cautious whenever using it in the
company of Americans.
Have a fantastic day passengers and don’t forget that American Idol is on tonight!
