You better Belize it!

This is one of those “did you see…” or “did you hear…” entries. Almost as bad as back to back posted IM conversations:

1. Cruisin’ to work and I heard this story on forced evictions in Israeli settlements in the West Bank. I’m sorry, but did that interviewee just make a Three 6 Mafia reference on NPR? When talking about the difficulties planning for the future with the threat of mandatory resettlement. Let’s check:
“I think at this time it is really dangerous to spend money. Everyone is afraid, Pimpin is hard. Like in the song.”
He did. Sho’ nuff.


2. Cruisin to the sofa last night I saw a Home Despot commercial in which two newlyweds are bummed to hear that the cancellation of their flight means that the entire honeymoon is somehow null set. Never fear! they realize as they can spend those same two weeks picking out garden tools with the help of the Olympic athletes at the Depot and re-landscape their backyard! Honeymoon saved! The yard looks great! Yeah!

Here’s how it would have played out in the Pyggy house: two newlyweds are bummed to hear that the cancellation of their flight means that the entire honeymoon is somehow null set. Never fear! they realize, we can spend those same two weeks picking out garden tools with the help of the Olympic athletes at the Depot as they watch in horror as the Governess buries an axe in the back of my head for ruining her life. Yeah!

Impossible you think. But you didn’t see her at the airport the day of our honeymoon. The day that I forgot my wallet and ID, had to drive home to retrieve it, and then didn’t check our bags for an international flight until 20 minutes before takeoff. There was almost some murdering that day.

NPR is apparently the clearinghouse for all info related to that song. I first heard it on WAMU during a segment previewing the oscar contenders. NPR starting to appear edgy = bad, bad news for me.
