Chandeliers
Isn't that a weird word: chandeliers? Happenstance. That's weird, too. Conundrum. That's weird, too, but I like it. Ever notice how if you repeat a word too many times it loses it's meaning? Pick a word and try it.

See?

Remember the episode of Rosanne when she and Dan are stoned and keep repeating their child's name: DJ. Deeeee Jaaaaaay.....Deeeeeeee Jaaaaaaay.....Deeeeeee Jaaaaaaaay. It lost all meaing for them. You don't have to be stoned for words to lose their meaning though. Just repetitive, and in an odd mood.

OK, here's a tidbit for you - I have never been stoned. It's true. Last quarter I had a fellow law student come up to me and say, "You know when you are stoned and you.....blah, blah, blah? I agreed, because I did know what she was talking about. I later thought how I had kind of misrepresented myself, but it wasn't like me pointing out that I'd never been stoned would have helped her make the point she was trying to make, plus she seemed kind of embarrassed. I didn't want to make it worse. Anyway, apparently I don't need drugs to achieve an altered state. My wife tells me my mind is a scary place pretty much all the time. No point in adding to the confusion!

Dakota,
You are the only other adult I know that hasn't been stoned. Odd, eh?

Good heavens. I can't even imagine the weird stuff you would pull from that brain of yours if you were ever stoned. You can pull out the strangest things as it is. :)

And I'm glad you have never been stoned. :)

Speaking of....."stoned" has now lost it's meaning and it's one of the silliest sounding words I've heard in a long time.

Stoned. Stoned. Stoned. DeeeJaaay. DeeJaaaaay. Stoned.

Yep - weird word. :)

Well add me to the list. I have never been stoned. In fact I've only been drunk once (on my 21st birthday)Not to say, I don't drink, I will have a burbon or margarrita every 6 months or so but that's about it. What does that say about us?
