Spelling is your friend

Seen on a big flashing sign over the Beltway tonight:



Now, it is certainly possible that if you drink and drive, you may also be loose. But I don't think this was the intent of the message. Perhaps Martin Lawrence now has a job programming traffic emergency signs at MDOT. Maybe I missed the line reading U SO CRAZY.

Also, I want to know what a "checkpoi" is. Will Maryland State Troopers actually verify if I am carrying pounded taro root in my car? What if I don't have any poi to check? How many points off my license? May I substitute yams or other tubers?

Went to my office Christmas party tonight at a lovely 18th century home in Georgetown. Spent time with really neat people, ate well, listened to good music, sang, and laughed harder than I have in a year. It was a good night. I finally feel like it's the holidays. Yay!

I am a Holiday Dork. Film at 11!

Lol! You have to watch those tubers, you really do.

Love the photo -- our little family of four was wearing similar antlers for breakfast this morning. I don't really know why, but I've learned it's best not to question these things.

They probably just want to make sure you're using the correct number of fingers to eat it.

Spelling indeed. I read poi but was thinking of coi.
