Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

I've Got To Join The Ranks Now Too...

Okay, I've had it. I've put up with it for too long; the acne emails, the electronic devices, weight loss plans. I can handle a few anonymous spam comments, but when the penile implantation ones arrive, it's time to turn on the Word Verification feature that I loathe. But I loathe it less than the pornographic anonymous spam comments.

Sorry, I hate to do that, and I hope it won't stop you fine legitimate people from commenting.

On a-completely-nother (isn't that just the strangest formation of words? It should be on another completely) different subject...

Christa and I are trying to figure out how to spell the word that sounds like this:

FAH-SEE-SHUS, or also a term used to show sarcasm. I thought it began with a PH; Christa thought it began with an F.

Whoever can enlighten me will be awarded a signed copy of 40 Weeks. (Yes, I know. It would be a whole helluva lot more appealing if the book was agented, contracted, published, but hey, at least it's written!)

Phacecious
Phoecicious
Facescious
Fecesious... okay, this is just now reminding me of my fake poo pictures.

It's FACETIOUS.

Crazy. I know!

Good thing I'm up at 2:00 am, huh? LOL!

YAY Erin!!!! You win. Thank you for allowing Christa and I to go to bed tonight!!! I guess the root word would be facet, which I have no idea why I just wrote that because that has no correlation (is THAT spelled correctly!?!?) to facetious, does it? But hell! I am going to use the word FACETIOUS like 64 times tomorrow just because now I know how to spell it and now I can go to sleep!

And, BTW, I was not being FACETIOUS about saying I would give you a copy of 'the book'. Do you want me to email it to you... LOL, but I'm serious! Or, would you prefer to wait years before (and if) it makes it to the reading world??? Thanks for helping us out! NIGHT!

It's "facetious."

I have been auto-spammed only once. Perhaps no one is reading!

Love the pics below...gotta do that every oncein a while.

Darn - if I was up at 12:49 AM - I could have one - that's a word I know, I know how to spell correctly...5th Grade Spelling bee... and I messed up...UGH!

Momma of Two--
you would have "won" not "one"... hahahaha--I know it's early! ; )

Sorry, I'm being a facetious bitch! LOL

And Yoga--I read you!

PS--Momma of 2--
I lost the spelling bee in fifth grade for the word cinnamon.

(I would have written I "misspelled" the word cinnamon, but I never know the right way to spell it!)

UGH! - I HATE it when i do that... somedays are better than others - today surprisingly is better than yesterday....good thing I wasn't here yesterday - it would have really been bad...LOL

Lost a team high school spelling contest on the word 'fluorescent'. My teammates spelled it without the 'c'. I knew it had a 'c' but not that it was 'sc'.

And I was watching the Blake-Agassi match last night, so I'm too late on contributing to the facetious conversation :) And where's the yellow smiley face?

I hate when people spell privelege wrong. when they add a d. Privilege? Privelege? Shit, now I have to look that up....

Privilege. Yep, I did have it wrong the first time. And see how weird words look after you think about them for a long time.

Nickel bugs me too. Nickel / Nickle? Pickle, Pickel, Pickle--OK, I have got to stop this blogging madness!!!!

 
At 9:39 AM, Blogger Manic Mom said...

Her master--what yellow smiley face? The emoticon? I don't know how to get the real smileys to show up... Dating Dummy knows though, so maybe he's not that dumb after all! Ha! You know how to add them? Thanks!

 
At 9:44 AM, Blogger The Dummy said...

Okay, everyone knows how to spell facetious now!

My verification word was jbrasni. That sounds foreign.

 
At 9:45 AM, Blogger The Dummy said...

Hey, I lost out on a spelling bee regional championship on 'infamous' - I had never heard of the word before! Darn it.

Smileys only seem to show up on Haloscan, not Blogger.

DD---
The Word Verifications aren't REAL WORDS! You know that, don't you? Or, were you just being
FACETIOUS????? lololol

Okay everybody, please use FACETIOUS in your daily conversations today and then ask people if they know what it means or how to spell it!

 
At 9:53 AM, Blogger Manic Mom said...

Oh Crap, I'm never going to get out of blogger hell--

DD--how did you spell
INFAMOUS?

infumus?

My word verification is kmrub.
"I could really go for a kmrub right about now, my neck aches."

Darn, I'm too late. But don't sweat the word verification thing. I think we all understand how things have changed in the blog world in the last few months.

Yippy! I rock!

Just email it to me! I'll be gone for the next week (Vacation Time!!!), but I hope to be able to check my email but it's via dialup, ick!

I can't wait to read it! :)

By the way, we must be in different time zones. I'm an hour ahead of you ... Weird!

My GOD! My word verification is "pbxonqkm".

Do I look like a spammer??

 
At 11:24 PM, Blogger The Dummy said...

I spelled it 'infimous' - because that's how it's pronounced when all you've got to go on are phonetics!
