Uh, I'm somewhere where I don't know where I am

I embiggened my training setup courtesy of Thrillhouse stickers this week. Homer gave me the extra push to get through Blender’s pain shakes today. Should have done this before my last Full Frontal!

PS: I see (sweat) towels, but I don’t think I’m in the linen closet again…

From wiktionary:

The verb’s first recorded use is in an 1884 edition of the British journal Notes and Queries: A Medium of Intercommunication for Literary Men, General Readers, Etc. by C. A. Ward (see quotation below).[2]

The word’s current popularity follows its deployment as an intentionally ungainly form by television writer David X. Cohen for The Simpsons episode “Lisa the Iconoclast” in 1996.

Not sure if I’d use that word to describe it, lol!

A perfectly cromulent word :wink:

I used to work with 3 guys who could quote verbatim sooooo many of the Simpsons episodes it was fascinating to me. Whenever they made a reference that I didn’t understand, I would just assume it was to the Simpsons and I’d invariably be right. You’d have fit right in. lol!

Hey, the Simpsons is what got me cycling! After Homer weighed himself and pronounced himself “a big fat pig”, I happened to notice that I weighed more than he did on the show. I got out my old mountain bike and within a few weeks I bought a Trek carbon road bike, and I got to a healthy weight in a few months and twenty years later I still cycle every day I possibly can and my weight is rock-steady at 175 lbs (I’m six foot three).

Super-meta! Very good :grinning:

just in case, but my TEFL Professor used to say if you’re not sure where a quotation is from it’s probably either Shakespeare or the Bible :wink:
