Susan's Blog

Wednesday, July 9, 2008


Just so you know, it’s not all gloom and doom here in the Senator-Batchelder household. I write about the stuff with Nat because it is how I deal. But sometimes I just have to write about other stuff, like the things that are in my head that make me laugh, or think.

Jim Gaffigan is a fairly new comedian out there, at least he’s new to us. This Manatee bit makes me laugh until I almost choke. Any guy who can channel sea creatures is alright in my book.

And then there’s the Fail Blog. Page after page of “fails.” Fatal typos, weird translations, lapses in judgment. A whole panoply of human error.

And Ben. Yesterday he told me a joke he’d made up: Q: What happened when the ship dropped a bomb into the sea?
A: There was a huge ballast.


I already love you, so perhaps this will yield a “meh.” It’s a risk I’m willing to take.

Regardless, anybody who uses the word “panoply” correctly in a sentence deserves a palm-stinging high five.

Always love the ‘fail’ blog. Thanks for the reminder.

I am going to go look up “panoply”. In the meantime, here’s something to make you smile:
