WELCOME to Thursday May 31, 2012.
People born before 1946 are called – The Greatest Generation.
People born between 1946 and 1964 are called – The Baby Boomers.
People born between 1965 and 1979 are called – Generation X.
And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called – Generation Y.
Why do we call the last group – Generation Y ?
Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
Y should I clean my room?
Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
Y should I buy any food?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a wonderful Thursday people,
and whatever you do, don’t forget to LAUGH IT UP!
Peace I am outta here, Eucman!

English professors love to catch the errors students make in their term papers, and they love nothing better than to catch mixed metaphors. The “friends and survivors” of Calvin College English department collected this list of mixed metaphors and posted them on their web site:
“He swept the rug under the carpet.”
“She’s burning the midnight oil at both ends.”
“It was so cold last night I had to throw another blanket on the fire.”
“It’s time to step up to the plate and cut the mustard.”
“She’s robbing Peter to pay the piper.”
“He’s up a tree without a paddle.”
“Beware my friend…you are skating on hot water.”
“Keep your ear to the grindstone.”
“Sometimes you’ve gotta stick your neck out on a limb.”
“Some people sail through life on a bed of roses like a knife slicing through butter.”
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘How much movie trivia can you answer?
What movie is this quote from??? “It is unsinkable. God himself could not sink this ship.”
Answer: Titanic! We, as viewers, should have seen this coming. They shouldn’t have said anything. Cal (played by Billy Zane) said this quote earlier in the movie but many characters of James Cameron’s award-winning “Titanic” made some note as to the ship’s ‘unsinkability‘. Long story short–it sunk. The irony and steadfastness of peoples’ comments about the Titanic, the largest ship of its kind, only served to fuel the tragedy of the movie which followed the love story of Jack and Rose (Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet) before and during the ship’s sinking in 1912. “Titanic” broke records all around for box office totals, Academy Awards, etc. Cameron would later direct “Avatar” in 2010 and DiCaprio and Winslet would star in “Revolutionary Road” together in 2008. While Winslet was nominated for an Oscar for “Titanic” she didn’t win. Both actors would be nominated in later years with Winslet taking hers for “The Reader” (also in 2008).
