all I can think of is some sort of warning message to the world, I leave the specifics to you. (read: I can't come up with anything so I'm being lazy)

My favourite phrase to write in places like that is "<made-up name> was NOT here". But in cement you may not have much room or time to write without being noticed, so I might just go for "PIE!" or similar.

Well I think my opportunity has run out for this particular piece of cement, but I think they will be laying some more soon, and hopefully by then I will have come up with an appropriate phrase.

Good ideas though, I like them... :D

Look, sooner or later you're going to have to realise that you cannot mention us both in the same context without implying some sex may have happened. We all have to live with that.

i always say "i'll jump off that bridge when i get to it". one every ten or so times i say it, someone nods sagely and then does a double take, hitting me with a "wait, what??" never fails to make me giggle... i'm also a fan of "where there's a will, there's a beneficiary" but i don't get to use it as often...

Much later I ended up in a safeway at midnight in the same clothes only wet. It's a long story and I'm still not sure which thread to post it in.

I have decided to finish my story here. After all I started it here.

Now I am helping my family move into a new apartment, this apartment currently is flea infested, and so, consequently are our cat and dog. Exposition over, now we begin.

Yesterday morning we all woke up at about 7:00 a.m. and had breakfast and such at the apartment. We then left, taking all the animals with us and putting everything edible away because the exterminator was supposed to come and flea-bomb our apartment. So we get to the old house and incarcerate the animals in bathrooms so as not to infest that house with fleas as well. We do some packing. We leave to go get lunch, nails done, and me a haircut. I have already mentioned what I was wearing so this is not necessary to repeat. I slowly became aware that my mom had decided that I needed a manicure and pedicure. So me, my sister, and my mom all end up getting pedicures and I end up getting a manicure. An interesting experience that I'm still not sure what I think of. Anyway, we end up staying at the nail place for about an hour and a half longer than we intended. Then I go next door and get a haircut, well, more like a "cut the bangs off and get the hair out of the ears". The whole deal has taken so long that we end up having to take my sister to choir practice immediately. This is a choir I was in until I got too old, and there are still some people in it who remember me. I meet an old friend there who invites me to practice with the group I used to be in. Naturally I accept. I happily discovered that the group is practicing two songs that I have done before and one song that is quite simply brilliant. I also discover that absolutely nothing has changed about the group since I left, and this is a good thing. We head home from practice, we get to the apartment and discover that the exterminator has not come and our apartment has not been flea-bombed. We go back to the old house to pick up the animals. My sister gets really unhappy about how badly the cat is infested with fleas, so we give both animals flea-baths. Only, the flea shampoo we used has to be left in for five minutes, and our dog is a big dog. I end up having to rinse off both animals, getting my pants and parts of my shirt soaked because I did this by giving them showers while in the shower myself, in my clothes (what? I didn't feel like getting undressed!). We realize that we haven't had dinner, and by this time it's after midnight, and go, still wet, to safeway. where I pick up some corned beef hash. When we get back to the apartment, we discover that not only do we not have a can opener, we have nothing that can be feasibly used as a can opener. I end up stealing some of my mom's chicken. We finish eating, and go to bed. It is 2:00 a.m.

That was my day. And now it is 2:00 a.m. again and time for me to go to bed.

Not exactly "weirder," but one of my college friends pretends to run into a staircase pillar and falls over in the basement level of the engineering building whenever he's there in the evening and there are lots of study groups. Then he gets up, acting very dazed, and stumbles up the staircase.

Today I caught myself saying "that's a whole other bag of kittens" (instead of "a whole other situation") and "not for an age and a half and fifty years" (I normally say "not for an age and a half"). I dunno, I thought they were fun and they surprised even me coming out of my own mouth. So unexpected phrases, truthfully.

I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said "Fresh", and it had dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare but I thought man forget it yo homes to Bel-Air. I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and I yelled to the cabbie 'yo homes smell ya later' Looked at my kingdom I was finally there to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air

I have a cloak for a winter coat, wore a plaid hat to a formal Christmas party and try to communicate in semaphore signaling. It fails. I know people who are much better at being weird (e.g. the guys in my philosophy class who made pancakes, eggs and bacon during the lecture).
