Woman 'married' to the Berlin Wall for 29 years.
Mrs Berliner-Mauer, who lives in Liden, northern Sweden, said: "I find long, slim things with horizontal lines very sexy.
"The Great Wall of China's attractive, but he’s too thick – my husband is sexier."
WTF? In the United States it's difficult to even marry a human being of the same sex, let alone a frikken' graffitied Communist wall! But, then again, she's a Swede (italicized because now that I live in Denmark I'm required to talk about our Northern neighbors with only utmost disdain), or at least lives in Sweden. I'm not surprised she's a Swede. Swedes are weird.
Ok, so back on the topic of alliteration and the title of this post, sort of... I guess I could have used a thesaurus to find a better t-word that means something similar to news, because that wall article is all I really intended to post about but, alas, I didn't because I got distracted when I Googled the word 'thesaurus.' Ever since I was little, the word thesaurus has reminded me of some kind of dinosaur. I know it's obviously the saurus ending, but the the part also makes me look at the word and think "the saurus" and then, nearly instantaneously, "the dinosaur" ... and then I get this really weird image in my head of a dinosaur spelling bee.
... mmm yeah. Well, I've been working too hard for too long today. Time to leave. :)
Before I go, on one last 'saurus note:
The above ramble reminded me of this card from someecards, which I sent to a friend earlier today...
... I'm hoping my friend sees this post, because then posting the following wouldn't be a completely futile waste of bandwith sucking hyper text markup language:
... told you. :)
