I have some goofy friends I chat with on a regular basis. These people help me maintain some semblance of sanity while I’m bored at work and keep me otherwise entertained even if I’m not bored. They are all quick-witted and hilarious, but more importantly we all have depression and help each other combat that bastard.
Alice, Merry, and I normally have a group chat going in Facebook. It’s like group therapy for us, only virtual. So, um, virtual group therapy. Or something. The things we speak of there run the gamut from very serious to very disturbing – we have sick senses of humor (I like it!). We use that space to vent and be ourselves. You all would likely be frightened by what you saw there. When one of us vents the other two play the support role and say, “there, there” and other such soothing platitudes. We often go to great lengths to make each other laugh and keep each other in good spirits.
Merry, at some point, started using the Pusheen the cat icons in the chat to make us laugh. It made us laugh because every time she posted it we’d all reply, “KITTEH!” This went on for I don’t know how long until one day we got carried away with it. Someone, I can’t remember who, started replacing all the long “y” sounds at the end of words with “eh.” So not only was kitty kitteh, but Merry was Merreh and Twindaddy was Twindaddeh. And so on and so forth.
I’ve inadvertently managed to convert a couple of other people to our jackassery. I first converted ES (Evil Squirrel) when I uttered chileh (instead of chili) in the comments on his blog one day. I then converted NotAPunkRocker during a conversation with her. I can’t for the life of me remember how. Having done that, I have this inexplicable goal now to…
Basically, this has now turned into a game to see how long we can exchange words by substituting an “EH” in place of a “y” or “ie”. For instance, I absoluteleh love how adorableh Babeh C tells me he’s funneh. Each person has to come up with a word in which you can strategicalleh place the “eh” at the end of a word in place of a letter (or letters) that make the long “y” sound. If you look to the right, you’ll see a gallereh of badges. You’ll also notice the title of that gallereh is Bloggeh Badges. You will all turn to the “eh” side. I have foreseen it.
So, I challenge you, follow bloggers. Let’s rewrite the dictionareh. Let’s happileh replace all y’s and ie’s with eh’s. It makes saying those words infiniteleh more fun. I’m so unshitteh…
