Adorably obnoxious? Or obnoxiously adorable??

A co-worker and I have developed this great relationship / friendship. We have been working together for a couple of years now, and we both have the same sense of humour – dark, twisted and inappropriate. The kind of humour that results in one of us suggesting “cancer” whenever the other complains about a headache, or a pain elsewhere in the body.

So offensive!

She always tells people that we speak two languages:

  1. English
  2. Gibberish

Funnily enough, when we speak our ‘gibberish’ language, we actually understand each other… But I suppose it doesn’t help that we’re both old enough to know better. Sometimes I wonder what the other employees here REALLY think of us when we get together because it’s generally looking at cat stuff on the internet, sending each other funny-yet-pointless links to pages, or talking in ridiculously high-pitched voices to one another.

Yes, some have told us to shut the fuck up, on occasion. Some have told us to stop being so obnoxious. 

This is where adorably obnoxious was created. “She said we’re just being obnoxious. I say we’re being adorable! Adorably obnoxious!!”

“OR obnoxiously adorable”, I chimed in.


Now we have our little moments and sometimes in the midst of all our hilarity, we’ll both go silent and just look at each other…

“Adorably obnoxious!”, she proclaims.

“Obnoxiously adorable!”, I say.


What’s the point of telling you that story? Nothing really. I just felt like I should explain why I’ve called my blog this.

THAT, and the fact that I couldn’t really think of anything else in the moment. I might change it… see what happens.

The truth is, that I have a lot to say. There’s a lot going on in my head and I need an avenue to direct it all.

  1. Hey I am so grateful I found your website, I really found you by mistake, while I
    was looking on Bing for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just
    like to say cheers for a fantastic post and a all round entertaining blog
    (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to look over it all
    at the moment but I have book-marked it and also included
    your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up
    the great work.

  2. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • Thanks! Well, I still consider myself an inexperienced blog writer… I’ve been doing this for about 8 months now, but I’m still learning slowly, and there’s so much more I don’t quite understand. The only advice I would give you is to just START… the first couple of posts are a bit of a stumble as you try to find your feet and work out exactly what you want your blog to be, but things like these daily prompts that I’m using have really helped me quite a lot, so that might be a good place for you to start off with, just to get into the habit of writing about a specific topic / memory / theme etc. Good luck with your new writing venture!
