For the record...

Chinos - are pants made from a tough cotton cloth, like khakis.

Khakis - see chinos

Dungarees - are pants or overalls made of blue denim

Blue Jeans or Jeans - also pants made of denim

In referring to trousers, you may also consider these words:
bloomers, breeches, britches, chaps, cords, corduroys, denims, knickers, pantaloons, rompers, slacks.

Oh, and George W. Bush is the worst. president. ever. What's sad and infuriating is that he is so dense and filled with denial that I don't think he gets that or will ever get that. And the democrats aren't stopping him and our soldiers are dying for a war that the majority of us do not, and never did, support. Every day,
five U.S. soldiers in Iraq try to kill themselves. But Bush says we (meaning "he") must win this war that is now in its sixth year. I love this country, but do we have to be such douche bags to the rest of the world. And do we have to be dumping trillions of dollars into an unnecessary war while our own infrastructure and middle class economy crumble?

And, by the way, I prefer Levis. Classic. Straight cut. Let them fade the old-fashioned way. by washing 'em.

My sister is having a birthday today. She is the oldest of four siblings and the only girl. We made her life hell.


Yesterday, I wrote...

"A species of frog has been discovered in Thailand and is unique for not having what?"

42% said "Sex organs"
- Nope. Froggy's still got his junk.

42% said
- And if the junk wasn't working, he's still got his tongue.

Nobody said
"The ability to sing "The Michigan Rag""

16% got it right with "Lungs"

According to the
Associated Press, Thai scientists say a frog has been found in a remote part of Indonesia that has no lungs and breathes through its skin, a discovery that researchers said Thursday could provide insight into what drives evolution in certain species. They are described as "..."flat and have eyes that float above the water. They have skin flaps coming off their arms and legs." I think they just described my Aunt Lucy.

Do you tally up peoples' percentages on the News Quizzes? I'm pretty sure I'm somewhere between 100 and infinity percentile. Has you're computer blown up or anything?

I'm not sure why you felt the urge to blog about pants, but I'm glad you did. The mere mention of PANTALOONS cracked me up! Tis a wonderfully funny word.

Thank you. I needed the laugh.
(Especially after being reminded of what a douchebag -- another good word -- George W is.)

Rock on.
