In My Dreams … #10


In my dreams  dictionaries are meaningless

… and there is no substance of matter.


note: photo taken in one of the DisneySea sections.

double note: #1  and #2  and #3  and #4  and #5  and #6  and #7  and #8 and #9  are still slumbering along.


notes to myself #131

You are pretty cynical about unexplained phenomena, but …  just be careful when there is a full moon.

I have a predictionary: it tells me what might happen … but not in the right order.


note: I am unpredictionable: I don’t even know what might happen!

double note: when someone’s very unpredictable … that’s kind of predictable really.

triple note: predictionaries are like selective logging: not clear cut.


notes to myself #23

You miss the first month of  Grade 12 with mononucleosis, but you get out of taking Algebra … so it’s not all bad.

Forgetting Words



People who partially forget a word but still try to include a portion of it into a conversation are not fooling anyone.

For example, please refrain from using these utterances when speaking: alwaysthinktheyaresickiacs, firomaniacs, or spiderphobia.

These people should really open a word definitionary a little more often.

note: I thought of this while suffering from cantsleepnia.




Have you looked under “U” in the dictionary lately?

ugh, uh, uh-huh, and uh-uh are all words now.

My dictionaries are pretty old: I’m sure “um” must be in the new ones.

I’ve submitted 3 burps, 2 farts, and a very nice stomach growl for inclusion in the next edition.




Dictionaries should change their format.

Instead of just listing words in alphabetical order followed by the definition, they should demonstrate what the words mean.

For example:

random – should appear randomly through out the dictionary.

quarantine – should appear on a page by itself. (maybe solitude, lonely, and segregate too)

invisible – should not appear at all.

apple – should appear in the tree and pie entry. ( core and seed should appear in the apple entry )


Where would you put the words?


note:potpourri” should not be listed between potpie and potroast. That’s just wrong in my books.
