100th post! And a contest!

FINALLY! The moment you've all been waiting for. This marks my 100th post. Woot!

It's been brought to my attention lately that maybe I curse too much in my posts. It made me nervous and a little paranoid, and I went back and reviewed some of the stuff I've written, and I've come to a conclusion.

Nuh uh.

I don't curse in every single post. And I really don't use the big, ugly curse words often. And it doesn't matter. This is my blog, dammit, and if I want to drop an F-bomb, I will. Feel free to mentally place ***'s in strategic places, or read some other blog that's all about rainbows and puppies, but here, in Per Se Land, the occasional "fuck" will be written. I can't help it. How else will I describe the frustration of paying $35 for expedited next-day shipping for my psychology book on Monday and then receiving it on FRIDAY?

So in honor of my potty-mouthed blog AND my 100th post AND to delurk some of you lurkers, I'm going to have a contest. All you need to do is leave a comment. But I thought I would spice it up a little. In your comment you can leave your most favorite curse word/phrase/saying. You don't HAVE to, I completely understand some of you don't curse. In that case, just say "hey" or "howdy" or "I WANT PRIZE." Post whatever you want, and feel free to comment as often as you want, because I'll be picking the winner at random. (By the way, the husband says he's going to enter, but he totally can't be the winner. I won't allow it. Once again, it's my blog!)

Okay, want to know what you can win? It's so exciting. It's fabulous! It's a $10 giftcard to Starbucks! Woohoo! I know it's not much, but if you choose wisely, you can get at least two mocha choca lotta ya yas out of it. (The husband brought up the fact that it should be a $100 giftcard. But then I had to remind him, yet again, of $35 shipping and the fact that my children like to eat once in a while. Damn kids and their "needs.")

So that's it. Post your favorite curse word or something else, as often as you want, and I'll pick the winner at random on Friday at 9:00 AM EST.

And just to get started, my favorite curse is "clusterfuck."

Ready? Go!

That is such a bitchy thing to say to a blogger. (don't have a favorite, used one at random) If you don't like it, don't read is is what I say. And I realize I probably have little chance of winning now since I'm #1.

pennifer said...

I'm kind of a short and sweet and to the point gal. "Fuck", "Fuck fuck fuck," and "pain in the fucking ass" are personal favorites.

Sometimes, when I'm feeling retro, it's "fucking a."

I just started reading your blog a few months ago, not even sure how I wended my way here. Keep up the good work!

Kelly said...

I don't know, Elisa. With the way this is going, I'd say you have an excellent shot at winning so far! :P

Pennifer! I enjoy Fucking A too. LOL

Debbie said...

I'm more of a mild dammit person - but do love your blog! And....non next-day shipping would qualify for something stronger!

Love those mocha lattas.

teri said...

Ok, so it's not really a curse word, but with a 4 year old boy who forgets nothing, and repeats everything....I've adopted the phrasing of the current obsession of the household....one Spongebob Squarepants.
A heartily-voiced "Tartersauce!" works well for any occasion....
especially funny when aforementioned 4 year old says it, too.

The Husband said...

"Tartarsauce" is a good one. And "Barnacles" too, of course.

I'm gonna go with "Jesusfuck" but I'm also a big fan of "Godfuckit" and "For crying out fuck's sake" and "Cheese and rice."

Chris said...

Favorite insult -- "Your mother was a wildebeest and your father was a hamster!"

We don't curse much, but my six year old daughter already does know how to properly use "FUBAR" in a sentence.

Ann said...

Potty mouth Chinese word lesson of the day - Gan ni

Definition: see "fuck you"

Amber Star said...

God apparently is keeping me from posting my curse words...it wouldn't post. For real.

elisa said...

Wow, first of all I see one of the people who already left you a comment is named elisa...that's my name too. Not too common so that weirded me out.

Today in mixed company I bumped my funny bone wanting to curse, but not wanting to offend anyone all I said was "dirty word"

Jenn said...

Well since I generally sound like a 3 year old when I curse and people find it amusing rather than offensive (seriously the first time I said asshole in front of my mom she giggled). I generally just stick to damn it. I am thinking of taking up just saying "dirty word" though, thanks Elisa.

Anonymous said...

The one and only best curse word is FUCK in any of it's many variations it never fails to make me feel better after blurting or screaming it out.

I am mostly a lurking but I'm a whore for Starbucks!

Lynn said...

oops well guess I did something wrong will try again! Fuck this shit delurking is hard work. What I won't do for Starbucks!

eve cleveland said...

It is o.k. to cuss! I think it releases endorphines, like they say running does. Nothing gets your point across faster than a good old F Bomb!So, it's also a time saver for a busy mom.

Yecats said...

no fuckin-way
get the fuck outta here.
are you fucking serious?
fuck me
fuck you
go fuck yourself
i'm/you're/they are/we are...so fucking fucked.
i love the word fuck...and i'm using it alot these days, b/c soon, i will have to part ways with my friend "fuck" and all her cousins...b/c my baby is one fucking smart little tater tot.

i also (against my soul of souls) use the GASP c word when something REALLY irritates me. i'm so ashamed...

Carol said...

I think your blog is delightful. What curses?? LOL!!! (Some people need to lighten up, doncha think??)

LR said...

Fuckity, fuck, fuck, fuck.

Oops... hope I didn't say that too many times... but it's my favorite line from the South Park movie.

Just started reading your blog recently... I love it, and I love your customer stories! They reminded me of a guy at my local Starbucks who would order his latte with 4 ice cubes... someone dared to ask what would happen if they gave him 5... I thought the guys head was going to explode!

Petula said...

You are funny! I love that post and I love this contest. I.want.coffee.now! LOL. Let's see... my favorite cuss word is usually in code: WTF! I try not to get in the habit of using it again because my teenager monitors my verbage and I don't want the three little ones to imitate. Although I am sure they'll pick up the What the fffff? that I sometimes utter. Okay, that's a cow, but you know what I mean. :D

Petula said...

Oh! Did I forget to say hey! :D BTW: I clicked over from linkreferral.

Debbie said...

Hi! I found your delightful blog the other day :)

Favorite curses . . . my mother used to string together "goddamn fucking son of a bitch" not infrequently :) I also like charlie-foxtrot for cluster fuck


Minnesota Matron said...

In the old days, we said 'Franken' which is short for phooey phoeey frankenberry but now we just say fuck. Fuckcluster is lovely. No doubt the 5 year old will master that one soon!

Am I too late? That's bullshit if I am!
