The Filth

lily allen

I am really digging Lilly Allen's new album Alright, Still. I was groovin' to it on the 38 Geary this morning on my way to work and my shuffle served up the song "LDN." I started laughing at the line "Riding through the city on my bike all day Cause the filth took away my license" because I love hearing slang terms for police.

Here are some of my favs:

The Fuzz

Check out Wikipedia's extensive list, too.

An "A" for effort

Old Mac Donald had a farm, e-i-e-i-o! And on that farm he had a bull, e-i-e-i-o. With a "c'me on, baby" here and a "oh, no!" there, here a slip, there a fall, everywhere a big no-no, e-i-e-i-o!

Cop makes pot brownies with confiscated marijuana

The 911 call is hilarious! I think the cop and his wife must have eaten the entire pan of brownies by the way he's talking.

Best. Cupcake. Eva.


I just saw this on flickr and it made me crack up. Sorry to flickr member helloquynh for nabbing a screenshot of this awesome pic, but you really should allow embed codes if you take pics this good. :)

It reminds me of a birthday cake my dad and I saw in a bakery window once. It read: "Happy Birthday Little Shit!"

Mr. Moses rocks!


I like CTOs like Dean Moses of Widgetbox.com who search Blogger to see what people are saying about their company. Here's what Mr. Moses had to say about my post on Widgetbox.com:

"Jessica, thanks for the most entertaining constructive criticism we've heard all year.

We get a lot of feedback that 'blidget' sounds like bludger, the ball Harry Potter uses in Quidditch matches.

I like your take on it better.

Dean Moses

I think Widgetbox.com has a future my friends!

Don't call it a "blidget"

Free Image Hosting at allyoucanupload.com

I like Widgetbox.com, a site for listing and making widgets. I even have one of my boyfriend's blog on my page--see Pacific Pelican.

As a member marketer (one of my many roles at my job), I write most of the communication to members, including naming new features. I always try not to be too cutesy because I think it undermines the member. Also, if I am going to name something, I don't want to feel like an idiot (if you're a Simpsons fan, you'll get it) when I say the term in public.

I feel like an idiot when using the word "blidget," WidgetBox.com's name for a blog widget. A widget's a widget. Let's not get fancy just because we want to coin a new term. When my boyfriend used the term, I thought he sounded like a 14-year-old white boy in Cincinnati who'd smoked some weed and was being stupid with his friends: "Yo I got this blidget and I smoke weed with my cridget and my mom she's a bidget." You get my drift?

Please, just call it a widget.

P.S. widgetizing the web?! I hope you make it to Web 2.1, WidgetBox!
