This is an offshoot of the original Liam & Janet blog. That blog has become overrun by Liam's inability to keep his mouth shut when something annoys him. The serious rants there seemed incongruous with the humor columns. The plan for the humor columns continues to be to post a new one every Friday, plus occasional extras when the mood strikes.

Blog Quickie

As anyone in the business world knows, "buzz phrases" come and go. Object Oriented. Agile. Paradigm.

One of the ones I'm hearing more and more is "First Time Right", which I understand is also the new motto of the Republican Party, after initiate voters went predominantly to (and by some reports, were the deciding factor for) Barack Obama.


Also, this weekend, some friends and I have decided to go for dinner and a movie. The movie is Pixar's latest offering, "Up". Which means tomorrow evening, I shall be ... fed up.


And a third: I invited some friends over for the weekend, and in the invitation, I said "I'd like to have you all over to Chez Johnson", which (for those who are unfamiliar) is a French construction that essentially means "The House of Johnson". Chez is pronouned the same way as Shea stadium, where the Mets used to play their games.

Anyway, whenever I use that construction, I always kind of hope that one day I'll meet a family with the last name "Guevara", so that I can say I'm going over to "Chez Guevara".
