monday october 6

today i was involved in a conversation where someone posed the one word question "forever?" and i instinctively replied "forever-ever." confused at this automatic response at first, i recognized within about 10 seconds that i was quoting outkast's "ms. jackson" and didn't quite know how to feel about the fact that a line from a 7-year-old rap song had so thoroughly permeated my vocabulary.

I do that too, you're definitely not the only one.

Totally reasonable. Its better than when I tell someone they can do it... and put their back into it. I'd rather quote Outkast than Ice Cube anyday.

Definitely used "checkitout!" yesterday in an email.
A reference to FERGALICIOUS.

I'm more of a loser.

my usual response to forever is the infamous "for-ev-ur" line from childhood fave the sandlot, causing the person i am addressing to look at me funny as if i was, perhaps, on drugs.

I'd say I respond more than half the time to "Forever?" with "Forever-ever". It just works.
