Oh so quiet…

I never realized how boring I can be until I stayed at home all day without tv. I’m telling you, I’m going crazy. The baby? Is screaming. The house? Is quiet. My email? Gets checked every ten seconds.

I’m having Dr. Phil and Sit and Be Fit withdrawls.

Last night we played Scrabble. But we played the 2005 version, which meant we had Google on hand. Did you know you can come up with a word using the most random letters with google?

I won, thank you very much. Wait. What’s that sound? It is the sound of this blog entry going down the tube as all my collective readers opt to go read something interesting.

So, since I’ve pretty much lost my mind, I’ll turn the reigns over to you guys.

What is really up with Bert and Ernie?


  1. I don’t know what is up with bert and ernie, but I want to know what is up with YOU being bored ? I don’t care if you don’t have no fucking cable, I gave you my PHONE NUMBER, beyotch, you could call me and we could be bored together.

    But noooooooooooooooo

  2. Bert & Ernie have a special kind of man love.

  3. Y, I could be bored to tears and I still wouldn’t be tempted to pick up the phone. Yuck! Doesn’t matter how wonderful the person on the other end is, it’s still the damn phone.
    And about Bert and Ernie, what’s there to say? They’re two men who like stripes and happen to live together. One likes baths, the other bottlecaps. Don’t ask, don’t tell.

  4. well, the truth is, even if she did call, I probably wouldn’t answer, because I’d have a baby attached to my tit and wouldn’t be able to get to the damn phone. But…. Why do you people hate talking on the phone so much?!

  5. I don’t care if you don’t have no fucking cable, I gave you my PHONE NUMBER, beyotch, you could call me and we could be bored together SJ!

  6. Y, because the phone requires EFFORT.

    I love the Rubber Ducky song. Burt is a control freak obsessed with pigeons. Ernie has adult add or something and is obsessed with a rubber duck.

    Dude they must have had some really kickass drugs when they created Sesame Street.

  8. They’re obviously light in their loafers. Bert and Ernie that is. Btw, I just found your blog again. Missed reading you!

  9. Y, I don’t know why I hate talking on the phone so much. It must be an inborn genetic mutation type thing. :)

  10. How long are you sans cable?

  11. My husband likes Bert and Ernie. You have to understand that when your daughter gets older, that’s all you’ll be allowed to watch on television, and you’ll analyze the shit out of it and it goes something like this - Ernie is Bert’s tormentor. Wake up Bert! Bert! BERT!

    It’s quite sophisticated, when you’re a grown man and have to watch it all the time and need to find sophistication in it.

  12. I know this sounds uber geeky, but have you played any of the games on Yahoo?

    Bet you that I could kick your ass at Literia. Email me, and we’ll hook up. It’s so not boring..LMAO

  13. I always joke that in our relationship, I’m Ernie and my bf is Bert. Me, perpetually bouncy/ head-in-the-clouds/ annoying; and him, the heavy-browed rational grump. But like Bert and Ernie, we’d be lost without each other.
    Ying-yang, warring sides of our consciousness, one completing the other, and all that other crap.

    PS: some girl’s right - Literati = mucho fun

  14. If Bert and Ernie were gay, they’d take baths together. And Bert’s pigeon would be named Bruce, not Bernice. Get with the program, people. Neither one carries a purse.

  15. Clearly, Ernie is the id and Bert is the superego. They are, in fact, the same character. Birds, such as ducks and pigeons, represent [cough] Jungian [mumble] archetypal [cough] escape to Paris a month before the Nazis get there [ahem] cigars! Cigars and phallic symbols! [cough] No, wait, that was Freud. Damn.
