Quote of the Week

I know, I know. I've been ridiculously lazy this week with the quotes and whatnot. I'd apologize, but I know you've already forgiven me. Today, I really wanted to post Tracy Jordan's "Werewolf Bar Mitzvah" to celebrate Halloween, but there's not a full length video (click on the link to listen to the hilarious song. "Werewolf bar mitzvah, spooky, scary. Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves."). I also thought of simply re-posting my post from last Halloween proclaiming my top 5 favorite scary movies, but that seemed even lazier than stealing other people's funny stuff. So, I finally decided to post this Halloween related quote from my BFF Annie (who, I realized, is the only person, other than yours truly, that every GitW contributor actually knows, which makes her an honorary Ginger, or something). Anyway, Annie's thoughts on pumpkin carving:

Carving pumpkins is like sex with someone you’ve been dating for a long time . . . its really fun at first, but then about half way though it feels like too much work . . . and then once you are done, it turns out nothing like you were hoping and the clean up is a pain. . .

Happy Halloween, ya'll. Imagine me sitting at my desk as Joan Holloway, trying not to eat all the Reese's.

I carved a pumpkin last night. I found wearing latex gloves made it easier. Not sure if that would help with boring sex

There's another way that carving a pumpkin is like sex with someone you've dated a long time: At first, it's fun to do together, but someone always loses interest and the other person has to finish it by themselves.

Ooh! And another way: After the first few minutes, I grow disinterested and look at younger, prettier pumpkins and move on to them instead.

You do that in the middle of sex, Pistols? Are you in a park or something?

Liz, yes, if by "park," you mean "preschool." Uh...I mean "college."

Usually, months into a relationship, we just do it in a way where we can both watch TV, because we should at least get something out of the experience.

Usually I'm very pleased by my carving skills, and she looks underwhelmed.
