blog-fecta!

There was just a story on the news, and I was reading blogs, so all I heard was..."...OCTO...." and I was like 'ENOUGH ALREADY!!! I AM SO SICK OF...." and then I looked up and saw that it was a REAL story about an Octopus. Annnnnd, it was about how the octopus had pushed a water tube out of it's tank and flooded the aquarium.

Yah. THAT is SO newsworthy. Seriously, That octopus OWES its 10 mins of fame to Octomom. Basically anything Octo is gonna make it in the news these days.

I fear that everyone is now going to think they're VERY clever to use octo as many times as they can. Like someone's cat is gonna have 8 kittens and they'll be all "hey yah! We have Octocat!" Or some GUY (yes, a guy) will be at a restaurant on a friday night with 7 of his friends and..."sir, how many are in your party?" "we're the OCTOparty!! HA! GET IT! OCTO!" OR some sized 2 woman will be pregnant and be al "I am so fat! you'd think I was having OCTUPLETS!" Or some woman after eating two cheeseburgers will go "UGH! Look at this -points to tummy- I'm like OCTOmom! I have an octo food baby! hahaha! Aren't I clever!"

Just wait. Juuust you wait.

And while we're on the subject of annoying phrases....here's one that is making the rounds here...Especially at my job, but it keeps popping up everywhere.

ME: HEY John! You taking my class today?
JOHN: *wiping sweat* wheew...yah! I am doing the trifecta today!
ME:huh? tri-what?
JOHN: THE TRIFECTA!! Spin class, your yoga class, then hard core abs class!

or this last text...
ME: hey! wat r u doing 2nite
GAY FRIEND: the usual fri nite tri
ME: huh?
GAY: fri nite tri-fecta!
ME:and that is.....
GAY:DInner, Drinks, Dancing!

AT NORDSTROM (some make-up line)
LADY: And THIS is the new Urban Trifecta! mini Eyeshadow/mascara/eye liner...all in one!

Pretty soon it's gonna be the "Holy Trifecta"


You know what? I'm just going to go ahead and start a new phrase. and I'm gonna use it ALL.THE.TIME. Like this...

"yah. see that guy? he's HOT. He's got abs, white teeth, full head of hair, huge biceps, can sing, dance, and act and is RICH! He's got the full Octofecta!

come on. I am tagging EIGHT people to use OCTOFECTA in their blogs today and see if anyone says anything! HAHAHAH!

Man, I should seriously be a game show host or something.

Random tidbit: We used to go to the horse races at the fair and there is a long list of these words on the betting forms. I.e. If you picked five horses to show you would be picking the "Quinella" an so on. I personally just like to say "Trifecta!" for fun. Oh, and the coffee thing? I was almost in tears, thought about being late to work over it.

Meg said...

Hmmm...how can I use "octofecta" on the bus blog? Or the food blog? Oooh. I know!

To the food blog!

Kristina P. said...

That's so funny that we both used the word trifecta today.

ANd did you hear that Octomom has been offered a million dollar porn deal? I will be first in line!

Meg said...

Now that is a writing challenge. Why you gotta do these things on a Friday?!?! I am done writing for the blog until Monday... although I suppose now I'll have something to think about while I'm sitting through an endless progression of basketball games and soccer games and riding lessons... wait! ANother tri-deatha :)

rychelle said...

i guess it could have been a
DIE-fecta.

either way - you are a genious. a COMIC GENIOUS. you should add it to your resume.

Counselormama said...

Ok, this is so weird, I just had a student use the word octopus in a sentence! It was so coincidental considering your post today. I Twitter her comment.

Hillbilly Duhn said...

LMAO! Too funny. Too bad I already posted for today or I would have been up for the challenge!

Keri (Forever Folding Laundry) and I were talking about you on the phone earlier this week...gushing over your latest posts and how much we adore you. Is that weird? To love someone we haven't met?

Well, we do. Get used to it.

Honestly, my admiration for you and your blog started with your approach to New Year's resolutions and hasn't stopped since. If anyone needs a recommendation on who they should be reading, you're at the top of my list.

Now, about "that guy", I've got plenty to say, but I'll hold off until I get to my e-mail much later tonight.

PS: Thanks for the link love!

PS: I should also add that I want you to remember us when you achieve Dooce-like blogging fame.

Megan said...

Ok, I just found your blog, have only read this post and I love you. LOL

Your pictures on your sidebars are bringing me back in time! So fun!

I'm not witty enough to come up with something tri-... or octo-...

Visiting from SITS. =D

Did my blog eat your comment?? Crazy!! My blog has been known to have Bermuda Triangle-esque qualities. Although, I prefer to think of it as being a little more multi-dimensional. Like, the Bermuda Octagon.

~Keri

Oh, and yes...ditto to what Francesca said. We love you.

peewee said...

AWWWWW...you guys are TOO kind! DOOCE! RIGHT! My dogs can't even balance ANYthing on their heads. And the feelings are mutual! I LOVE YOU GUYS!

This is why I don't internet date and stuff. Cuz I'm already like "these are my FRIENDS. BEST FRIENDS!" I'm the one who would end up on DR Phil being all "I know I've never met him, but I LOVE HIM and we're getting married!"

Kathy B! said...

Alright... I did it! I used octofecta on my blog AND trifecta.

I hyper linked to you, too. I get all of three visitors a day so be prepared for the tidal wave of my referrals. Woo hoo...!

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

You are the perfect trifecta....yoga, rage and a sense of humor. Or chocolate. Whatever works! ;o)
