Uhh....Bibulousness???



I live near Chinatown and occasionally venture into its depths, (where no visual evidence of the USA exists) to shop in the stores I find there. Items normally in the pharmacy sell for far less money....basic things like simple office supplies, or kitchen things, or cleaning aids. While I was not particularly in the market for the New Generation Washcloth, I could not resist, basically because the 2-pack (pink and yellow) only cost a dollar, but mostly because the description had my eyebrows knit as I giggled like a silly girl. Check out the features!

yeah... I think I have some of those at home..lolol... hope you stopped by the little "it got everything" stores on Grand st. around Elizabeth/Mulberry =D

The red lanterns are used on 15th day of the New Years and supposed have these riddles written on it, family and friends try to solve them.. it's like a family activity and it represents the nature, people and the gods that would bring light to the world. Or so that's what I found out. =D

Oh thanks, Meekiyu (for the lantern info). And yes, I have passed those stores, but never gone inside. Maybe next time I will!

omg, bibulousness without plasm! Good to know it doesn't go unhealthy, surprising with all that bibulousness. Must be the lack of plasm. ;D (LOL)

sMacThoughts said...

Yes, I know, christin.g, I mean, *PHEW* I say that it doesn't "go rotten". I hate when my washcloths "go rotten". :)

That is perfect "chinglish"

I have spent my adult life dealing with "Engrish"

I speak Japanese and Chinese and constantly find examples - in fact a company I used to work for had a slogun "Everyone, Everywhere!" that was Engrished on the side of every downtown Tokyo metro bus as Everyone, Everywhore!


Yea, not the PR spike we were looking for.

Suzy .... :D
Jeremy .... OH my gosh! Yes, there is a Korean deli by me. For those not from NYC, let me explain that a deli=bodega=corner store. They never close, they don't even have doors, oftentimes, and they sell small selections of produce, canned goods, bagels/muffins/coffee, hot soup of the day, dairy, snacks, toiletries, cleaning products and the like. The Koreans in my neighborhood have delightful handwritten signs like "Bloccori" Green and Red "Rettuce" and "Blomdies" (which can be found next to the brownies!)

I need to get some of those! I have all kinds of plasm issues!!

I cracked up at your "Banana" comment on my blog. Lolli pops too! I can't stand listening to someone work on a tootsie pop, ugh!
Have a great weekend.

Tracy, I actually was excited to tell my twin sister on the phone this evening about discovering another person who is grossed out by mouth sounds, and when I told her what I said on your blog, we both laughed hysterically. Because we understand the potential violence the type of culprit I mentioned to you can incite in those like us. Get it, sister? You're one of us now. :P

Chris said...

Hilarious! You couldn't make that stuff up if you tried.

Lisa Gatz said...

Ah....Engrish! It's too funny when you come across it in real life. Thanks for the laugh!

Ms Dragonfly said...

Bibulousness -- that is too funny! how is it working for you though, when it's not drunk? i am thinking of looking in my local asian market for one to try it.

btw, i just LUV the header photo! i don't know why but i like that kind of stuff!

sMacThoughts said...

Chris .... fortunately I don't even have to try with comedic material for me to use on my blog just all laid out in Chinatown just ripe for the pickin'!

Lisa .... welcome, and yes, we can all laugh at accents; they probably laugh at ours, too!!

Ms Dragonfly .... yes, see if you can find them. They are wonderful, in pretty colors. :) And that photo is of one of the hedges which are all around my family's beach house for the last, gosh, 75 years or so. You can get a lovely print of it in my shop!

rachel said...

Personally, I'm always on the hunt for bibulousness. :)

You gotta love stuff like this.

sMacThoughts said...

Well then you're in luck, Rachel, because this is bibulousness to the max!! :D
