Blurry line between work/home and SnS.
« on: June 03, 2009, 08:58:43 am »
So, I'm working on this really big bid for the Corporation and the proposal manager's last name is Cabrera.  Every time she sends a note to the group, I giggle.

TZ lexicon has been creeping into my daily work and home vocabulary for the last couple of years.  It makes for some strange discussion to try to explain what a "Lackey Bushneck" is when you toss out that phrase in a business meeting or reference the "Worrell Button" in in response to a chatty wife or daughter.
Another trenchant comment by a jealous lesser intellect.

As long as you stop short of "WFW" you will probably be able to explain it all without too much difficulty.

I try not to bring up "Dirty Sanchez" at family dinners.  Largely, I succeed.

I started to attempt to explain to my girlfriend why I called the Rockies the 'Rukkakes'. I stopped.

I'd like to congratulate Taras on not wiping shit on his family's faces during dinner.

It's the nicknames that get me, for sure. I constantly forget that most people don't know who Twinkie and Flapjack are. Try explaining Flapjack and sounding like a sane person, I dare you. "So, Maybelline and Mr. Peepers go to an IHOP..."

I had a horrible day at work yesterday.  I went home with a pounding headache, and despite trying as hard as I could to stay awake, I fell asleep in the 8th inning.  Dreamed of shooting zombies with a bow and arrow, and when I woke up, the Astros had won and the Cubs blew it in the ninth.  I like to think that's TZ karma.

I always refer to the team from st louis as the Co's or the Co-ards. Sometimes people look at me strange, sometimes they ask, and the rest of the time I don't think they are listening to me anyway.

I likened Cecil Cooper's managerial skills to a slop jar full of nuts the other day and my roommates died laughing. They never even asked where I picked up the phrase. It's all in how you use it, gents.

WFW was coined in the workplace by my secretary. it will work in his office.

Their recent hit single "Cleveland Steamer" squeezed its way to Number 2 on the charts before making a big splash by dropping so precipitously. They are now straining furiously to release their next masterpiece, "Pasadena Mudslide."

Pasadena Mudslide is the B-side; the straining comes from the "Sequoia Summer" track, yet unreleased.

Odd.  I was sure the follow-up wasgoing to be "Montezuma's Revenge".

See, I did, of course. Sadly there was nothing too interesting on the first page of results. I did get a hit for the lyrics of a Joan Osborne song, "Smiling Faces Sometimes," it's called apparently. So you can see how google determines relevance. You have "faces" in the song, and you have "feces" in Joan Osborne.

I would call that a significant improvement from Joan Osborne in just about any category.

Indeed.  In fact, it would likely garner some newfound respect from my superiors since I'm the misplaced "nice guy" that somehow slipped into the executive branch.
