Oh, snap! I have just reached my one-hundreth post! And it has taken me about nine months to get here!
But what was my first post? Was it about Big Bang Theory? Was it about being a geek? Was it a quiz? No. It was about…exams. It was published in December, but there was not a hint of Christmas spirit in it. But at the time, I really was suffering from the constant stream of GCSE tsunamis. GCSEs are like purgatory; you’re put through hell for months on end, but the end result is nearly always heaven. If you’re interested, click on “School” (under Categories) and scroll down to the bottom to see my first post. If you’re not, then good; I agree that it’s not the best of posts to start a blog with.
I did not start this blog to release my exam stress, though. I’d actually originally made this blog to post sections of my new story. But in the end, I figured that the stories weren’t good enough, and just mucked around on it, posting about Night, Gaming, Legend of Zelda, Outnumbered, Futurama and Noel Fielding’s Luxury Comedy. Zoewright96 provided the motivation, for she had created her own blog, lifesabowlofinnuendos, earlier that month, and she suggested I created this blog. And I can’t thank her enough.
My personal favourites out of my early blog posts are the ones about my friends, JJ and Zoe, and when I went indoor sky diving, which I enclose links to:
So much has happened since I began this blog: I became part of a group of bloggers on always equal who fought passionately against inequality. I found other fantastic blogs, written by incredibly talented people. But most important of all, people are actually FOLLOWING MY BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously, I am in a state of shock that this has actually happened!
But why create a blog? What’s the point? Many people have asked me this. The answer’s oh so easy. It’s because blogging is an amazing experience. It’s because it allows you to share your thoughts and ideas on the interweb. And it’s because blogging involves writing: the most valuable skill known to man, and something that I just always find so relaxing and enjoyable. Writing has saved me on so many occasions, and just holding a pen or sitting at a keyboard immediately puts my mind at rest.
I’d like to say thank you to everyone who clicked “Like” for at least one of my posts, or even just had a little look! I’d like to say “merci” to everyone who gave invaluable and delightful comments for my posts. And I’d like to say a big “danke schon” to everybody who follows this blog!
Live long and prosper, everyone! 😀
As a child, you watch pantomimes, and all that’s running through your head is “He’s behind you!” and “I hope we we’re the loudest part of the theatre in the singing contest” and “I can’t wait to boo the villain!” But you don’t pay much attention to the costumes and scripts, (except for the “Oh no you’re not” bits and when they do that annoying “Oh so-and-so! Oh so-and-so! Oh so-and-so!” etc) meaning you hardly ever get how rude and un-childlike they are. Watching the pantomimes on TV over Christmas, I was just SO GLAD how I never got hardly any of the rude jokes as a child. For, as you may know, pantomime writers seemed to LOVE innuendo.
Being a teenager is when innuendo becomes part of your sense of humour. Some choose to fight it. Some choose to pretend that they don’t understand innuendo jokes. Some just go with the flow.
Nowadays you can find innuendo on many TV programmes. TV Burp. Big Bang Theory (“Who has wood for my sheep?”). Miranda (GIMASSIVE EXAMPLE). And when you’re a teenager, that one innuendo-feeding neurone in your brain is at last connected, and it starts to learn how to buzz whenever Sheldon ponders as to why his need for wood is making Howard and Raj giggle. Then your brain faces a dilemma: should it ignored, should it be fed, or should it be blocked?
But the worst thing about innuendo is that it can spread. It can be influenced into other people. I should know, because it has happened to me. Unfortunately.
It’s not just teenagers that laugh at innuendo. It apparently seems that if you let it, the neurone lasts into young adulthood. Some innuendo was found in John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, which Steinbeck very probably did not notice. And let’s just say our teacher did not consider our attitude towards the jokes a little alien.
The English language today is filled with euphemisms and innuendo and puns that suddenly become extremely funny once you come of age. As a teenager, I can safely say that the worst part about being a teenager with a sense of humour trying to restrain itself from craving innuendo, is when you say something that is met by laughs…and then you realise the wrong part of what you said (I am NOT giving an example)! But liking innuendo is not too bad. Even if it’s not in good taste, it provides laughs, and that’s what’s important.
But the best thing about innuendo is, to paraphrase an epic blog, life’s a bowl of innuendos! 😀
Well, here it is! My fiftieth post! And since you can never tire of the Big Bang Theory, well, this post is Big Bang Theory related!
What am I going to do? Do a quote from the fiftieth episode (where Sheldon teaches Penny rudimentary physics. An example quote from that episode is in fact in the previous post)? Do a countdown of the top 50 Big Bang Theory quotes? Give 50 reasons as to why Big Bang Theory is flawlessly epic? No. Sorry. It’s just going to be a quote. About the number 73! (FYI, I checked this quote on Wikipedia and a blog of BBT quotes.)
Sheldon: What is the best number? And by the way, there is only one correct answer.
Raj: Five million, three-hundred eighteen thousand, and eight?
Sheldon:Wrong. The best number is 73. You’re probably wondering why?
Raj: We’re good.
Sheldon: 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror, 37, is the 12th, and its mirror, 21, is the product of multiplying, hang on to your hats, seven and three. Eh? Eh? Did I lie?
Leonard: We get it. 73 is the Chuck Norris of numbers.
Sheldon: Chuck Norris wishes. In binary, 73 is a palindrome: 1001001, which backwards is 1001001, exactly the same. All Chuck Norris backwards gets you is Sirron Kcuhc!
Raj: Just for the record, when you enter five million, three-hundred eighteen thousand, and eight in calculator, upside down it spells [YOU KNOW WHAT].
Leonard: Remember when you were wondering why the girls didn’t want to eat with us tonight?
Howard: Yeah, I get it now.
Oh and FYI, in the same episode, Amy develops a crush on Penny’s ex-boyfriend, Zack; Raj and Howard compete over who should be ‘Rat Man’; we see Howard wearing a wrestling suit; and we learn the origin of the cartoon heart…
I don’t know if I told you this before, but the name of this website is thanks to the brilliant mind that is Ben from Outnumbered (although the best character is unarguably Karen). He used the word “zingy zangy zongy” to describe how he felt after he drank half a double espresso. I myself quite like coffee, and I LOVE feeling hyper! Also, I thought that ‘zingy zangy zongy’ was an absolutely amazing word, along with ‘blogging’, ‘doodling’, ‘limo’ and ‘little Lalita’. It was also thanks to zoewright96 (lifesabowlofinnuendos.wordpress.com) that I started this blog, and I just want to give the most specialest of thanks to her for convincing me to start this blog. It’s just that so many writers across the centuries have turned the most geniusly thankful phrases into cliché, so all I can say is this: Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyousomuchthankyouthankyouthankyousovery-veryverymuchthankyouthanks.
As Leonard Nimoy/Spock says, live long and prosper all you wonderful people! 😀
For my 42nd post, I’m going to post a link to ANOTHER Big Bang Theory-linked website!
But this website was not necessarily designed for Big Bang Theory fans…
It’s Cleverbot: a website where you can have a conversation with a very clever robot! In fact, this robot is so clever that if you type in the first line of ‘Soft Kitty’, it will reply with the second line. It can sing Soft Kitty with you!!! Just type in “soft kitty” and shiver with delight, Big Bang Theory fans!
I didn’t find this though; another Big Bang Theory geek (zoewright96, who blogs on http://lifesabowlofinnuendos.wordpress.com/) introduced this to me, so very special thanks go to her!
