Quick! I Need an Icepick!

I had a really clever idea for what to blog about today, but then the guys in my department started talking about the etymology of the Brazilian wax and I had to perform an emergency auto-lobotomy.


(True:  The word "I" comes from the Latin idem, which means "the same."  Because I'm unique.  Just like everyone else.)

  1. Well, you've gotta do what you've gotta do. And if that's a self administered lobotomy, so be it.

    1. I hope my insurance will cover this...

  2. Dana, please relax! There is absolutely no reason to lobotomize yourself with an icepick just to keep from experiencing that discussion. All you have to do is gouge out your eardrums (and your eyes, to keep from accidentally reading lips). The icepick should work for this, or if one is not available, a small screwdriver will do. Please leave your brain intact, so you can continue gracing the internet with hilarious blog posts.

    1. Hey, good idea! Because, you know, even though I've gotten the okay to occasionally wear ear plugs, extreme times call for extreme measures.

  3. I thought that said icepack at first. Which made me think you would probably need one after getting a Brazilian wax. Owwwie.

    1. Good lord. Rest assured, if I ever get a Brazilian, something will inevitably go terribly awry. So you'll hear about it here.

  4. One more thing...

    After a lobotomy, you and Prada would only have one and a half brains between you, so you'd have to change the blog's title. That sounds like a lot of trouble. Instead, maybe just leave the room where Brazilian waxing is being discussed.

    1. I wish! Sadly, we've got L-shaped cubicles that face each other in squares, so I'm pretty much stuck with the three of them. Sigh. Life is hard.
