Well, guess what starts today. THAT’S RIGHT MY BIRTHDAY COUNTDOWN. Thirty-three days ’til I turn thirty-three!! It’s a shame this happy event is insufficient to reverse the grouchy mood I’m in.

Fortunately, I have some things to share that do not partake of this grouchiness. I actually typed them up the other day as an addendum to my previous post, but never got around to posting. Which is good, really, since otherwise the entirety of this entry would be my birthday countdown announcement, and that would be sad.

So. One morning I was eating breakfast looking out the windows as usual, and there was the deer family! Now, one of these baby deers is a curiousbii and always wants to see and explore everything. When the dog, whose eyesight and hearing are none too good these days, finally noticed the deer in the yard, she approached. The curious baby immediately headed in the dog’s direction to see what that was about. But the mom was like, OH NO YOU FUCKING DON’T and charged right at the dog, who ran in terror to the porch. It was entertaining.

And speaking of entertaining. I can’t even begin to remember what the conversation that prompted this could possibly have been about, but a gmail ad gave me an invaluable tip recently. I’m not even going to put quotation marks around it, because I don’t want anything distracting from the punctuated glory that is this, um, sentence:

Dont Bet Your Life On Anything Else In A Gunfight Those Who Train, Win!

Now, I can see where, if this was written with the assumption that it would be spaced on two lines, a lack of punctuation between the first sentence and the second could make sense. But that stupid comma between “Train” and “Win,” even if it isn’t strong enough to connect the two sentences, looks like it has slipped from an earlier point in the advertisement and just kinda slid down to a random spot at the end.

OK, have you guys ever gone to Google and typed “is” followed by a single letter just to see what it suggests at you? This made me laugh so hard I was crying. Some of my favorite general suggestions:

“is beyonce pregnant” “is beyonce pregnant again” “is college worth it” “is england a country” “is egypt in africa” “is google making us stupid” “is he the one” “is it down for everyone” “is kim kardashian pregnant” “is kevjumba a heterosexual bear wrestler” “is khloe kardashian pregnant” “is mint safe” “is nursing school hard” “is nicole vandeputte pregnant 2012” “is revenge worth it” “is slenderman real” “is shirley temple still alive” “is today a holiday” “is this a zombie”

And a couple of series that tickled me:

“is bill nye dead” “is eddie murphy dead” “is eminem dead” “is fidel castro dead” “is jackie chan dead” “is jon snow dead” “is kidd kraddick dead” “is lil wayne dead” “is nelson mandela dead” “is zach sobiech dead”

“is anderson cooper gay” “is darren criss gay” “is frank ocean gay” “is john barrowman gay” “is kenneth faried gay” “is lance bass gay” “is macklemore gay” “is obama gay” “is one direction gay” “is prince gay” “is psy gay”

Yes, many of these questions are not terribly funny in and of themselves… but that they’re asked frequently enough that Google suggests them to me with only “is” and the following letter just cracks me up.

Now it’s time for me to go to work and not bite anyone’s head off.

  1. Awwww. I want deer in my back yard! I’ll even settle for seeing the red fox again.

    “Is anyone up”, “is it down”, “is shingles contagious” and “is macklemore gay” are what I got. I can’t believe anyone even asked if Obama is gay. What made anyone think he might be?

    1. I love our deers so much! My dad has actually started nailing the vertical planks onto the new fence, so I probably won’t see those deers in the back yard ever again T__T

      A red fox in the yard would be awesome too! Another good reason that my cat is an indoor cat XD

      I too wonder why people googled “is obama gay” frequently enough for google to suggest it to me. What was their mentality when they asked this? What would they have thought if they’d discovered that he supposedly is? What difference would it have made in their lives?

  2. Is 0 an integer?
    Is *67 free?
    Is xbox one backwards compatible?
    Is red jacket firearms closed?

    I don’t have deer in my yard (or the apartments’ commons area) but we are FESTOONED with GEESE two days out of three, and apparently NOW is the time for them to lounge around in great numbers all over the grass. I love seeing them, hearing their honks. They’re bigger than I thought they were…but then, everyone looks small on a computer screen.

    1. OH GEESE. There used to be a family of them on my walk home from work several years ago when I lived and worked at places where I no longer live and work and there were walks between on a regular basis. SO FREAKING CUTE. You are lucky to have so many around your home!!
