I don't care what some bozo said couple thousand years ago and made a book about rules, I love shrimp. Mmmm yum. I had some the other day.

Mike, to your question: What book are you Maiko?

When I did it the other day (which I forgot to post) is



You're Roots!

by Alex Haley

While almost everyone agrees that you're brilliant, no one knows quite how to categorize you. Some say that you're a person with an amazing family tree. Some say that you're just a darn good storyteller. Others say that you're both and don't much care where to draw the line. What is known is that your people have been through a great number of trials and that you are where you are because of hard work. You have nothing to lose but your chains.

You're The Guns of August!

by Barbara Tuchman

Though you're interested in war, what you really want to know is what causes war. You're out to expose imperialism, militarism, and nationalism for what they really are. Nevertheless, you're always living in the past and have a hard time dealing with what's going on today. You're also far more focused on Europe than anywhere else in the world. A fitting motto for you might be "Guns do kill, but so can diplomats."

The determining factor was the question:
Can a few days be more important than many years?
First time I said no. Today I said yes.

I'm The Grapes of Wrath!

by John Steinbeck

I'm mired in a deep depression that encompasses me and everyone I know. I am trying to get out of the depression, but my idea of help is, in itself, pretty sad. While some are convinced that this all has a deeper meaning, I'm really just dull and tedious. And utterly obsessed with dust. I really need to focus on something other than dust. My best moments center around turtles.

Howard Dean: "I am no longer actively pursuing the presidency."

Does this mean that he's now pursuing the presidency only passively ?

I was wrong?

Oh I see, I put the order wrong.

Tight should have been "wonderfully poignant" and not Gutter. Ghetto should have been the gutter talk.

Sorry for any inconvenience, regular shipments will return shortly.

Alright. That elicited some good responses.
but to this statement: << happy anniversary tomorrow, Mrs. Callister. >>,
I will say thank you and let Mr. Maiko Callister know, too.

AM definitely got the Ghetto correctly. Sounds like lots of personal experience is playing a major role here.
BTW, AM, what were you doing at a teenagers' party? (Maybe you should know that they usually tell adults that they only have Sprite.)

And Mike... I have not much to say except that you're very wrong on many accounts.

Tight is used in replacement of the eighties' "cool" and "awesome" but much cooler...

Saturday, February 14, 2004

Ghetto: Cheap and utterly devoid of class. Like when the teenage boys in the apartment across from me last semester had a party and ran out of alcohol at 10pm, and told the girls that showed up at 10:30, "we got Sprite. Or you could go to the store and get something." (but they were teenagers so it's kind of cute). Or giving someone a Christmas gift that you received as a gift yourself last year but didn't really like - even if you almost never used it and it looks like new. Or asking a girl on a date and then telling her to take the bus over to your place to meet you. I could go on, I have lots of examples, many of which I'm guilty of myself (but not the Christmas present one . . . really!)
Tight: I don't know, but Mike's guess makes me want to vomit.

By the way, happy anniversary tomorrow, Mrs. Callister.

Ghetto: Wonderfully poignant. As in, "That's wonderfully poignant."

Tight: Great Ass, bitch. As in, "That's a tight little ass you have there, bitch."

Today's High School 101:

Ghetto: as in "That's ghetto."

Tight: as in "That's tight."


Please state your (un)educated guesses for the meaning.

Denmark Prisons Ban Heavy Dumbbells

By JAN M. OLSEN

Associated Press Writer

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- Pumping iron - at least heavy dumbbells - will be banned in Danish prisons following complaints by wardens who feel threatened by inmates turning themselves into "monster men," officials said Friday.
"Some inmates have grown to abnormal size," Carsten Pedersen, the chairman of the Union of Danish Prison Officers told The Associated Press. "They have become monster men."
Denmark's Prison and Probation Service decided Thursday evening to immediately remove all dumbbells and weightlifting discs of more than 30 kilograms (66 pounds) from fitness centers in the country's 80 state prisons and probation centers.
"We took the decision because our staff feel they are exposed to a risk," Annette Esdorf, the deputy manager of the state-run prison board, said Friday.
Pedersen called it "total madness" that inmates have been using dumbbells of 50 kilograms (110 pounds) in prison gyms.
The prison board's decision came after prison staff had reported "several cases of inmates with aggressive attitudes," Pedersen said, adding that such prisoners represent about 300 of Denmark's 3,500 inmates.
"The combination of heavy dumbbells and anabolic steroids has led to a very harsh and negative prison culture," Pedersen said.
Earlier this week, one of Denmark's most senior police officers, Chief Constable Joern Bro, said it was wrong that "some criminals can get incredible strength in prison."
