You Teach Me and I'll Teach You

word of the day:


–noun (sometimes initial capital letter)
a very timid, unassertive, spineless person, esp. one who is easily dominated or intimidated: a milquetoast who's afraid to ask for a raise.

You know how I know you're a milquetoast? You listen to Bright Eyes.


From last night:

Di: (while playing Bejeweled) "When you're playing Bejeweled... do you ever hear the Pokemon song in your head?"
Dan: "What?"
Di: "Forget it..."
Dan: "No, what did you say? Hear what?"
Di: "The Pokemon song."
Dan: "No... Do you?"
Di: "Yeah..."
Dan: "Why?!"
Di: "... Because I want to be the very best."

So she's been obsessed with Bejeweled on Facebook for several weeks now. I try to keep up, but she destroys me with a new high score on a regular basis. I'm not really into puzzle games, but there's something very addicting about this one. Maybe it's the 1 minute limit? Perhaps it's the excitement of getting a higher score than your friends? Whatever it is, it's working. As long as it stays free.

You know how I know you're a milquetoast? You listen to Bright Eyes while playing Bejeweled.

she just can't sustain the pressure where it's placed, she caves


  1. how dare you share that publicly!!
