Sometimes your shallowness is so thorough, it's almost like depth*

I went to the supermarket this afternoon and saw the following:

A hot pink car with the words 'JUST PLAYN' emlazoned on the side and the number plate (also hot pink) 'SXCTOI'

I honestly can't imagine the kind of person who would want to be seen driving around in that....

Welcome..... We are now entering hell. Please keep your hands and elbows inside the car*

I have had a scrapbook for several years where I put all the random stuff that I find that amuse me, such as new words, wierd facts, useless information, quotations etc in..... I kind of gave up after a while because it was a pain having to glue things in so now I am bringing it online!
I hope anyone reading this will like wise be amused and maybe even learn something :)

My word for today is 'Weltschmerz**' .... quite fitting for NYE I think .....
Fact of the Day: Anatidaephobia - fear that somewhere, somehow a duck is watching you
