    Perhaps it is some sort of medical condition.
    I doubt it--I suspect it's from bad posture as I've seen numerous other people walk like that.

    The fact that Arrested Development got canceled (due to poor ratings), but enough people watch According to Jim to keep it on the air.

    My roommate just walked in with two of his sorority "gurlz" (yes, he spells it that way), sporting a sweatshirt with their letters. It looks like it was made for a 9-year old boy, judging by the fit.

    They then talked about all the cute boys, he packed his cologne and other homo essentials, and departed for a night at the sorority house.

    I live with a woman.

    It hit me today: walking , or trying to, through city streets and 'having' to step around/avoid/dodge the fake leather handbag and belt wares that the (always) immigrants are trying to flog. Laid out on the pavement, reaching halfway across, they expect everyone to dutifully avoid their illegal merchandise? It seems so. The shopping crowds are bad enough as it is; the last thing I need is another slice of the pavement/sidewalk taken up with fake Gucci crap. But the thing is: I don't object to them trying to make a living selling it; just do it more discreetly, less intrusively. The illegal element doesn't seem to matter much anyway as the police cruise by with full knowledge they are there. Maybe if the high rent shops in front of which they sell the stuff withheld their rents the police would do something about it.
    Rant Over and out.

    You just saved me having to explain a cheesy sitcom, and in the most fitting way imagineable.

    When people have foreign names and expect you to pronounce it with a foreign accent.

    Agreed. It really breaks the flow of a sentence to radically change pronunciation.

    *snicker* Wait, tie collector, how were you pronouncing "chipotle"? *snicker*

    There's a difference between adopting an accent to pronounce a word and simply using the closest approximation in the language you're speaking. The guy correcting you was probably just trying to keep you from sounding like a rube.

    [Unless he was insisting that you adopt an accent when you say the word, in which case I agree, that's lame]

    No, I approximate pronunciation as closely as the English language will allow without sounding awkward. Accents in the correct places, etc. I also speak Spanish, which makes it even more annoying.

    Actually, it gets even more obnoxious with Spanish speakers describing food or booze. The other day I was talking to another co-worker and the conversation went like this:

    Me: I'm getting food at Chipotle.

    background spanish speaker: chee-POT-lay

    co-worker: cool, lemme give you some cash.

    me: Do you know what time Chipotle closes?

    background spanish speaker: chee-POT-lay

    co-worker: I dunno, I'm sure it's still open.
    pronounciation
    me: alright, Chipotle it is:

    background spanish speaker: chee-POT-lay


    Then there is always listening to Giada De Laurentiis on Food Network to get the same effect in Italian.


    Some people pronounce Chipotle: chih-pol-tay, which sounds very wrong to my ears. I find nothing wrong with pronouncing it chih-pote-lay, though.. which is roughly how I say it.

    There is a soda cup they have which lists the most frequently used mispronunciations on the side. There are ones I hadn't thought of.
