I’m up to my arse (it’s not really cussing is you spell it like that, right?) in alligators. Trust me, this does absolutely nothing for my basic insecurities. I’m not in a good mental state to really go on, so I’ll just let you listen to a little tune that may or may not help you with your own insecurities and at the same time it should clue you into my biggest one ‘the voice of reason’.
Please be warned this little song is from the Broadway Musical ‘Title of Show’ and you know how those Broadway types are, thar be adult content here (that just insured you’re all gonna click on it, didn’t it?). Know that you have been warned, I don’t want anybody showing up in my front yard with torches and pitchforks.

Actually, if you're English (like me), "ass" is less loaded than "arse" (although the latter is funnier :P ). Arse is always a butt, no matter what, but an ass is also a donkey, whether or not your accent is American or British. I know many of fellow brits might suddenly switch to an exaggerated American accent to say "ass" when using it as a euphemism for "arse" in certain environments (such as the work place). But I've also found most of my American friends and family find British swears and curses so funny and oddly charming, that is hardly counts as profanity at all! :PReplyDelete
You sent me a link to this video a while ago, and I loved it so much that I downloaded the mp3 and gave it a place of honor on my iPod.ReplyDelete
Hope things look up for you soon.
That was hilarious. I especially liked the vampire of despair :)ReplyDelete
Um, I want to know about the alligators. :)ReplyDelete
Alligator? You've got me very curious. *hugs*ReplyDelete
I want to know more about the alligators too. :)ReplyDelete
LOL. That was crazy and yet so true.ReplyDelete
Toss the alligators some hot dogs and run away!!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, I love that little song you included. It reminds me of Avenue Q (another Broadway musical) in its whimsy. And I totally love adult content because at some point, I actually became an adult. Go figure? I often wonder how that happened. Take care Faraway. May February leave you with less alligators and more alligator boots. Or if you don't like alligator boots, maybe some other kind of luxury :)ReplyDelete
If you've got alligators, you should be able to cuss all you want. Alligators??ReplyDelete
Appropriate for today's theme, but Rodgers and Hammerstein it ain't. George M. where are ye? Kind of took me back to the '80's and stuff like A Chorus Line.ReplyDelete

Hahahaha, thanks, Far Away. I needed that! Love it.ReplyDelete
Uh oh...that can't be good!! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the laugh!ReplyDelete
Hope you're doing better soon!
Alligators?! All I can say is, STAY SAFE!ReplyDelete
Alligators...crocodiles...ass...arse...all a matter of geography lol! Aussies say 'ass' when we don't want to swear...'arse' is really rude!ReplyDelete
Sorry you're swamped. Toss the aligators a chicken and row the boat in the other direction.ReplyDelete
I've always heard it up to my @$$es in Aligators and could never figure out what an @$$es was. I have two cheeks but only one @$$.
You're feeling a little wild and crazy as you run from the alligators. Wait. I think you actually are whipping the arses of those alligators.ReplyDelete
That song is right up my alley. I love it. A message just doesn't reach me and touch me unless it's laced in profanity.ReplyDelete
I love the discussions about "arse" and "ass." As an American living in Britain, I can say that I have never considered "arse" to be a swear word, but calling someone an "ass" is. My English husband probably sees it differently though.ReplyDelete
That said, my kids would get in trouble no matter which one they used if I heard them saying it. ;)
EVERYONE - Thanks for the comments and the love and concern. You guys all made me smile.ReplyDelete
I apologize AGAIN for being such a slacker in responding. I was swamped. In the middle of moving, car trying to break down, being broke, generally feeling insecure and sorry for myself when I posted this AND THEN the house fell on me.
Actually, that house thing was a good deal. It put everything in perspective and reminded me just exactly what's important. I'll try to tell you more about it tomorrow.
I really hope you don't mean literal alligators.ReplyDelete
