"Cake-Face: (kayk-fay-ce) - The process in which your stupid face is shoved into a cake, thus making you look quite the fool to all who gaze upon you"
Oddly enough, I was on Dictionary.com today (one of the few non-porn sites I find worthwhile) and I've want to get into the practice of using their "word of the day" in whatever post I'm working on. Sometimes it will be a passing reference, sometimes it might be an entire post about the word (hoping like hell one day the word is "Batmanisawesome"). Todays word fits what I wanted to open with anyway so it will be easy to use.
"Sabbatical (suh-BAT-i-khul) - Any extended period of leave from one's customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills or training, etc."
I solemnly promise this to you: I, although on a self imposed sabbatical, WILL NOT be using my time to acquire new skills or training (I might, however, ect. That sounds kinda fun). I haven't been working on the blog that much in late May, early June due to the fact that getting shitfaced while watching Hockey every two days does wonders for ones inability to sleep. This blog is not called "j.Bowman Can't Pass Out....then wake up and eat a pie. Not a whole pie, just like a slice. A big slice. A slice that's the size of about half a pie" (it would be a nightmare to register that url). I took a leave to focus all my energy on willing my beloved Vancouver Canucks to Stanley Cup glory...only to watch it go down in flames (...pun?) as they lost...in game 7...to a team from northeast USA...again.
I have been in mourning. The last time that same thing happened, I was 8 years old. To prove how emotionally mature I am now, keep in mind that when I was 8, I shut down the blog I wrote permanently I was THAT upset.
But I have creative obligations to uphold. I don't actually, but whatever motivates besides the fact that it's very quiet at 3:35 am, is helpful. So in keeping with tradition, I will close off May while dangerously close to the end of June, with more inductees into the most pointless Hall of Fame in the galaxy.
The "I.I.H.O.F" is about to get some new inductees. The following Inanimate, Intangible things are forever in my good books and enter the hallowed halls of...well, I don't have any hallowed halls, but if I did, the following things would be enshrined for all the look upon, and appreciate until the end of days.
