I Want it That Way

Tomorrow is the last week of the semester. This means that come Friday, I'll be able to sleep in for three whole weeks. That's right, we get three weeks of vacation!

Anyway, here's a song that I listen to every morning while driving to work. Pretty much on repeat. And I sing along. Loudly. Each time I listen I try to alternate which BSB harmony to sing along to. (Except for Howie's. Never been a fan of his.) (Reading this back, I realize I sound like a huge nerd. I'm okay with that.)

I was a huge BSB fan when I was younger. (In case you were wondering my favorite was, and still is, AJ.) I think when you're thirteen years old you don't really try to find a meaning behind the song. Well now I'm 29 and I can tell you that I have no effing idea what this song is about. Which way are they talking about? Because at first he wants it that way, then she wants it that way and then, just to make it more confusing, he never wants to hear her say that she wants it that way. What the what?!

(Apparently I'm not the only one who has questioned the meaning of this song.)

So here's the video. (Nice airplane, guys.) If you're able to make any sense of it, please, for the love of all that is holy, let me know.

Gelatipulpo and other things that make me laugh

I know, I know. I haven't blogged in forever. Sometimes I just don't feel like it. So to make up for my absence, here's a whole post of stuff I found funny enough to take a picture of.


Pretty much this entire menu is funny. Who would order something containing "sea squirt"? Don't even get me started on the Echinoderms. 



This is a sign in Villarrica. It is supposed to say retorno which is a lane set up to make a u-turn. Anyway, some clever kid changed the t to a p. I like to imagine that every time he (obviously it was a boy) drives past this he laughs to himself ala Beavis and Butthead because it says porno.



Poorly translated signs will never not be funny. This one is in a grocery store in Púcon. 



 Grampas for sale! Only $1890! That's a pretty sweet deal. For only 4 bucks you can get your very own grampa.



Every day I have to drive past this horrible sign. "Camping"? 
SERIOUSLY?!
It "kills" me every time I see this horrible apostrophe catastrophe. 


Update: While driving to work this morning I realized that the sign is incorrectly using quotation marks, not apostrophes. I would have just changed it, but I so enjoyed "apostrophe catastrophe". Every time I say it in my head I use a made up accent so the two words rhyme. And it makes me laugh. So I'm leaving it here. 




It may be hard to read, but this imported garlic (that we bought without realizing it was imported) has the slogan "Fresh, we always".


Yum! Placenta conditioner!


If the popsicle isn't calamari flavored, why did they name it after an octopus?? 
And why does it only have 6 legs?
He looks pissed.


Okay this one is from a train station in Antwerp, Belgium. 
Every time I see this picture it makes me laugh. 

Probably the best?
