'Meh': Apathetic expression enters dictionary - Yahoo! News

'Meh': Apathetic expression enters dictionary - Yahoo! News

For months now I've asked every cool person i know what the hell "meh" means after reading it in a comment line on someone's blog.
Sounds like it's been around a while. I'm slow on the draw..but at least so are all of the cool people i know.

call to action

I just found out that the Sock Monkey is not a member of the National Toy Hall of Fame.
My friends, it is time to act.
Go to the Strong Museum of Play website www.strongmuseum.org and nominate this ambassador of good will to his rightful place in toy history.
That's what this democracy of ours is based on, the power of the vote.
Straps and i thank you for your support!

p.s If a box and a stick can make it into the Hall, nothing should be able stop our mighty Monkey!

i was born on election day in 1960.
this year election day falls a few days before my birthday and i have a big pre- b-day wish.
i am emotionally invested in the outcome of this race.
one side effect of this political intensity is that i completely lose my sense of humor and get all wound up from mid Oct. till the results come in.
after watching my friend squeeze the hell out of her Incredible Hulk doll while watching one of the debates, i realized that i too needed some kind of anti-stress implement.
i bought George (also known as "Straps")about 2 weeks ago and don't know how i lived all of these years without a sock monkey.
when the goin' gets rough, i rub his ears, and oddly, relief seems to come.
7 bucks at CVS in case you're interested.
cheaper than talk therapy.
no side effects like drug therapy.
old school charm.
highly recommended chill tool.

Political junkie

Politics are my sport.
Debates are my Super Bowl.
I get so cranked up for these things..even though I know pretty much what they are going to say ..and not say.
I watch and hope for a few knockdown punchlines, a few major gaffes here and there..
or best case scenario, a trainwreck.
I know that this is serious stuff, and i am passionate about my beliefs, but i get swept away in the drama of it all...
So it is with relish that i look forward to tomorrow night.
A few friends, a few snack items, nerfballs, and nerf guns to fire at the TV when the spirit moves us to do so.
Does it get any better than this?
