Pull a bat, I hit a ball up.

Hello all! I’m barely back from all my road-tripping in lovely Idaho. I had a good time with the family and the food was excellent. It snowed quite a bit making everything more peaceful and lovely than I ever remember. I took some pictures but can’t seem to remember my password for the tmobile pictures website :( grrr. This is super annoying. Tomorrow I start the new job, and I’m pretty darn excited. I hope they remember I’m starting tomorrow. About ten years ago I started at a new place of employment and when I showed up, no one seemed to know what to do with me. It was very frustrating and intimidating. I’m excited to look schnazzy tomorrow, I think beautiful women will fall into my lap tomorrow. Write it down, I’m predicting it.

I had a really good post for tonight, but I’m not finished writing it and honestly I’m just too darn tired, so tomorrow you’ll get quality. Instead, you know what you’ll get tonight? Palindromes! What are palindromes?

The word palindrome is derived from the Greek palíndromos, meaning running back again (palín = AGAIN + drom–, drameîn = RUN). A palindrome is a word or phrase which reads the same in both directions. Some examples:


To further demonstrate palindromes I’ll use Weird Al…this guy is a genius, watch the vid, the whole thing (sung in the style of Bob Dylan) is done in palindromes, seriously wow.

    Weird Al does bob dylan better than bob dylan does. “oh no don ho” indeed.

    Weird Al is my hero. :) Palindromes rule. Yay for nerds!

    My favorite palindromic names i’ve created are: ooloo and pillip

    Bob is also a good one. But i cant take credit for that though. :P
