    I'll preface this with saying I am nearly blind without my glasses, and as with most good stories it starts with downing a dozen beer and some shots.

    I was at a Christmas party a few years ago and got picked up by a woman. We ended up at a friend of hers apartment. We fell asleep on the couch. I woke up thinking I had made it to a friend's place, which I know well enough to walk around without my glasses on.

    I started towards the bathroom and walked into a glass coffee table. It shattered everywhere.

    The worst part was that my glasses where on the table and I could not find them in the pile of broken glass. The woman whose apartment it was comes out and sees her coffee table smashed and starts yelling at me. I had no idea what her name was or where I was. I had to wait for the woman I was with to find my glasses for me before I could leave.



    That is supremely hilarious. [​IMG]

    Were you naked too? Because if you were, you totally win this thread.

    Either way, it's hilarious.

    That is hilarious. I actually lost my glasses in September during a night of drunken revelry. I was literally BLIND for 2-3 days after that.

    You couldn't see anything? Did you walk around with a cane? What was it like to be without sight? "Literally" is becoming the most misused word these days. I actually heard on a basketball broadcast LeBron James is "literally on fire". Really? He's burning to death? Great. Or "I was literally laughing my ass off". Your gluteus maximus actually detached themselves from your body you were laughing so hard?

    Sorry, rant over.

    (And now I have my most recent awkward moment, albeit on-line)

    Yeah, I don't usually fall prey to the misuse of "literally", but I did today. [​IMG] Has anyone else noted the pandemic of "creep/creeping"? It's apparently the new "cool." Someone will be talking about the party they were at last night...something like "Yeah, I was all creeping up on her!" will be said. Or, there's the classic "I've been creeping him on Facebook! Lolz!". It's not used in the verb sense. Instead, it's become this weird noun. I've heard it used when someone waved to another person in the dining hall; "Dude stop creeping her!" came from the mouth of a particularly AmJackish guy. According to my sources within the African American community, "creeping" was in use by black folk before slutty rich white girls hijacked it.

    Sorry for the blast, just something I've been ranting about.

    I've heard the "creeping" slang too. Just another word phase, soon to be replaced with something else. When I was in high school, the phrase was "scamming".

    Kids these days!

    i had somewhat of an akward moment today.

    i was walking to the computer lab for my 5th hour (yearbook) to work on some shit and I guess this girl was the only one left trying to finish whatever she was trying to finish. right when i walked through the door my movement was negated by a wall of fart from the 9th circle of hell. this was honestly the worst fart, it had all kinds of rich shit flavors. now, im not a fart conosseiur but that was definitely in my top 10 of worst farts. whats worse is, the girl is super cute and is co-captain of the cheerleading team so when i took a whiff i just stoop there staring at her and she was all red and sorry lookin. i guess she didnt expect someone to come early so she decided to let out a heart stopping ripper.

    yes, i love adjectives.

    Um, "creeping" is a gerund [​IMG]

    Well, isn't "Creeping" technically an adjective?

    An old lady who was walking in the opposite direction as me pushed me today. I didn't even see her coming. She very seriously, and forcefully power-walked (it was one of those snobbishly entitled power-walks) right into my shoulder, knocking me off balance. I turned around and said "Excuse you" and she said "Maybe you should have MOVED," and I said, "Maybe YOU should have......"

    Fucking bitch.

    "Creeping" was a prominent slang term that enjoyed a loose definition (as such suddenly widespread terms often do) as far back as when I was in the 10th grade, which means it is, at the minimum, 8 years old, and probably older. It was most favored by the stoners, and then made its way into the common vernacular of the more popular kids who occasionally hung out with the stoners because of their easy access to pot and ecstasy.

    Is it possible your mildly obscure state school is actually 8 years behind the times?

    No, this is happening all over the place. I guess it's enjoying a revival!
