Made guacamole for the end-of-the-(school)year office party today, and it was a hit! Thanks to ewinfic
-- I kinda smooshed your recipes together. Made the mistake of trying to eat the rest of it for dinner, though, and it will be a long time before I'm able to look at an avocado again.
These Volkswagen commercials are really starting to piss me off. The Punchbuggy game is, as its name indicates, limited to punching when you see a VW Beetle and nothing else
. (I had some guy friends who tried to institute [PT] Cruiser Nut Crunch, a game of testicle-grabbing fun, but that's neither here nor there.) No one in the real world has ever seen a Jetta and punched their friend, expecting the hit to be acceptable (and thereby unreturnable) under the rules of Punchbuggy. And -- here's the thing -- the writers of the commercial know this
. They know that it makes about as much sense as screaming "YAHTZEE!" every time you step on a crack in the sidewalk and yet they built an entire advertising campaign around it. I also hate how worked up it makes me. I swear, my blood pressure rises every time I see one of those commercials and I get annoyed with how annoyed I am.
Free Pinto plotbunny to a good home: Zach is making fun of romantic comedies, perhaps especially those featuring Chris. He's all "I could write a better script in my sleep" and Chris double-dog-dares him to actually do it. So he does, handing Chris each scene as he finishes it. And it is
good, except somehow the lead characters sound suspiciously like him and Zach... Maybe Zach uses some of their actual banter as dialogue. Anyhow, it all leads to sex (as these things tend to do). :oD I'd write it, but I'm working on, oh, a gazillion other things, some of which are quite long and I would like to finish them at some point. So, yeah, I would read the shit out of that if someone was inspired to write it.
Hmm... that's a verbal tic I seem to have picked up from a friend of mine: "I'd [verb] the shit
out of that [noun]!" Doesn't always work, though -- once she looked at my lunch and said "Man, I would eat the shit out of that burrito," and we both kind of went ugggggh
