Maybe this should be a poll instead.

There was a segment on the news last night about a new study that's being conducted to examine the 'mystery of woman's sexual drive'. All I could think of was just how money was going to be sunk into this 'research' instead of...oh, I dunno, breast cancer. Whatevah.

. . . . . .

I was called 'eccentric' the other day for making a point of selecting the 'orphan' bananas at the produce store. Y'know the ones that get stapped off a 'bunch' and then left behind. I feel so sorry for those abandoned bananas. Why is that eccentric?

. . . . . .

How do you pronounce the word "sandwich"? A woman on television said: 'samwich' O_o
How do you pronounce the word "pumpkin"? Most people I know say: 'punkin'.

. . . . . .

Was discussing my upcoming TV season viewing plans with bossymarmalade over the week-end:
I think I'm going to purposely miss random (or every second) episode(s) so when the black hole of summer arrives, I'll have stuff to catch up on and not find myself watching Matlock because there's nothing on! I'm just sayin'.

. . . . . .

::tight hugs:: to ms_nerd who was in a pretty scary toss-up yesterday.

. . . . . .

Summer has arrived with total attitude this year and I'm LOVING it!!!!!

My dental consonants aren't all that sharp, but I definitely include each letter (or blend).

I say sandwich and pumpkin. There's no 'm' in sandwich and no 'n' in pumpkin. I also say Washington, not Wershington, and creek, not crick. ;-)

It irks me when people call it a 'sammy'. I wonder if the Earl of Sandwich is rolling in grave hearing this. lol

You feel sorry for them, but then you EAT THEM.

In NM, I learned to say, "sang-wich."

That's all I got.

I think I say "san-wich" without really saying the 'd' unless for some reason I'm trying to enunciate. It probably doesn't sound all that different from saying samwich, to be honest. Actually, I might say samwich. But I don't say sammich. Unless I'm doing it deliberately for some reason.

And I say pum-kin or pump-kin. Never punkin--that's what I call, like, a baby or a puppy. Like "hey, punkin!"

I'll second those pronunciations!
It always comes out San-wich unless I'm being very careful with how I'm saying the word.

And for me it's always pump-kin.

(I'm on the west coast BTW)

I pronounce all the letters unless I am trying to be funny. Then I say punkin or sammich. :)

I say sanwich, or sandwich... my Dad however says sammidges (purposely). The use of sammy irks me too...
And I say pumpkin, unless I'm talking to Samantha, in which case it's "there's my little punkin!" The worst crime to me though is 'libary'... makes me nearly homicidal.

Smooch your angels for me!
