A musing...

I was getting lunch from QDoba and noticed, as I was leaving, someone going into the nearby “Tan Your Hide”. I've always thought that was a stupid name, since “tanning your hide” is another way to say “giving you a beating”, usually with a belt. At least it was when I was a kid. Today I thought, if I was more enterprising and willing to go up against the law, it would be great to open a chain of S&M shops alongside all of the “Tan You Hides” in strip malls across America and call them “Smack Your Ass”.

Have a great weekend you huddled masses, with all your yearning and whatnot.

That's too funny. Kinda like having a makeup shop called Slap In Yer Kisser (that's a punch in the mouth in Brit slang!!).

You know, it's funny too, I used to have to walk past this grocer's called Strain Your Greens on my way home from work each day and it always made me laugh. Strain Your Greens is Cockney slang for having a number one!!

I have too much time to think about this stuff... I spend much of my time making up fake comapny names for my instruction manuals. My fave so far have been a fast food place called 'Abra-Kebab-Ra' and a kennels called 'Pug You Like'...

.. erm, yeah...

Have a great weekend. I am off to pric things up for the big yard sale in an hour- wish me luck!! I'm not sure if I'll get enough for a new Mac but a girl can dream!

You think of the oddest things. Sometimes you worry me.
