Boondoggling and Bumfuzzling

A little exert from a newspaper led me to a new to me word. I thought maybe some one just made up this word until I looked it up in the dictionary. I was bumfuzzled when I found it is really a word. And if boondoggle is a word, then I was thinking bumfuzzled should be too. So just out of morbid curiosity I looked it up. IT IS!!

"WELCOME TO PARADISE The North Richland Hills City Council is having a budget planning retreat today and tomorrow at Garrett Creek Ranch in Paradise and some folks back home don't like the idea. City officials say the two-day session is all work and no play and they are trying to build consensus on budget items. Critics say it's a boondoggle and the distance makes it difficult for some residents to attend the sessions. The council should be more frugal, one critic told the Star-Telegram. " --Wise County Messenger Update

n : work of little or no value done merely to look busy v : do useless, wasteful, or trivial work

bum·fuz·zle ( P ) Pronunciation Key (bmfzl)tr.v. Chiefly Southern U.S. bum·fuz·zled, bum·fuz·zling, bum·fuz·zles
To confuse.

Once again, this should prove how easily amused I can be.

I am so easily amused. I could sit for an hour and read the Taco Bell sauce packets. I ate there for lunch and the one I chose to use read, "do you put it on from right to left or left to right." I don't think it really matters, but it just makes me chuckle. Most of the sauce packets usually do. So I read this to my friend and she wanted to know what difference it made which direction you sauced your taco. I told her it was the same as which leg do you step into your pants first. It really makes no difference. So she says, ok and kind of like it does not make a difference which way you put the toilet paper on the roll.
Now that's just wrong. The proper way to put toilet paper on the roll is with the toilet paper rolling out from the top. Putting it on with it hanging out the bottom is just backwards.
I guess the point of all of that was that one can be just as easily annoyed as they are amused. But hey at least if you come to my house and use my bathroom, the toilet paper will be facing the correct direction. (Along with the canned vegetables alphabetized)

Smart Robber

A bank robber in Nebraska became smitten with the teller, who handed over the cash. When he phoned to arrange a date, she kept him on the line long enough for the police to trace his call.

Now that was really bright!

Bargain Shopping

I have never bogged before but I want to give it a try. I figure the one thing I know is blonde moments. I can sympathize with other victim's of blonde moments and feel their pain. So I vow to post regularly and help other's to not be victim's!
