Lame Irks Again*

Thanks to Abby, I’ve become mildly obsessed with anagrams. So, as inspired by her newest entry, I’m going to list a few anagrams I’ve found. And, for those of you unsure of what one is, don’t feel awful about it or anything, I’ll tell you – an anagram is the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once. For example, an anagram for fart would be raft. Not a very, well, polite example, but you get my drift.

So I’ve been having a lot of fun with this word play, and here are a few of my favorite anagrams I’ve come up with, with the help of the ever so handy internet anagram server:

The art of war brought up fart at whore - really, this is pretty cool. You need to admit it.

Blogxygen brought up only one result: lynx go beg. Whateva.

Feeding tube is feed it begun – so, so true…

Supplement (aka Boost) came up with plump tense. *Sigh*…tense is what I am because plump is what I’m becoming…

Since I’ve been feeling dysfunctional lately, I typed that in, and I got sadly function – which, really is just about what I’m doing lately. Really, ask Brandon.

Husband came up with bad shun and had buns, which I love, since he wishes I did!

With some of my argumentative blog readers and commenter’s, I have gotten in garbled roes with them.

My full name, Brienne Breivik, came up with this, which is both mine and Abby’s favorite: inner biker vibe. I’m such a bad ass, you just don’t know it.

Cade Breivik
brought up I beaver dick, which had me giggling like a mad school girl.

I mentioned I’ve been in a bit of a blue period, which came up with pour ed bile, which I thought interesting. Those of you with Ed’s might get it a bit more than the non-ed’ders.

Boredom brought up me brood, and rather than do that, I thought I’d anagram it up. The point is they’re amazing. Especially when you’re insufferably bored.

And finally, happy birthday (to my dear brother Brandon) brought up thy happy rabid. I don't even know...? Just wanted to say hope you have a great day, bro. :)

*I like anagrams

Abby got me into anagrams, too! Aren't they fun?! :)

KC Elaine said...

such fun! I love "fart at whore." Miss you!

Penny said...

You just made my day, too. Love you and wish for you too to have a happy day because you bring so many chuckles to all of the rest of us. The supplement anagram was way so amazing. Better consider sending this e-mail to Brandon's direct e-mail for his birthday. It would mean much to him that you remembered!!!

b said...

Mama, I sent a birthday card to Brandon, so if he doesn't read this entry, he'll still get well wishes from me. Love you Penny!

Heather said...

Oh my flippin' heck! Now you've got me totally addicted to this too. I most likely will be up way past midnight just doing this sorta thing......it seems like a nice handy way to get one's mind off of troubles and woes, ya know? Just what I need at the moment, you know, having been kicked out of Grief Therapy...yep, whatever. However.....this summer I won't be working so I'll have LOADS of time to waste away!! Yeehaw! How ya doin' girl? We really need to talk soon. Have a great day doing anagrams!

Heather said...

Wait a sec...is it your b-day too today? I forget which twin is yours. Oh wait...is it Brett? Well, if it is your b-day, have a great one. And if not, well, have a great one anyway! OH...now I remember...isn't it in December? Man, I'm tired. I'm at my lunch break at work and the kids are just driving me nuts! They're sucking all the life outa me at the moment.

b said...

Heather, silly, silly girl...

My birthday is in July. As is the other set of twins. ;)

alana.rachelle said...

that's right, 2 days before the best day on earth!!! hey, come to vegas with me that weekend and we can celebrate together! :)

Emily said...

Cool anagrams!

Abby said...

Yay! These are all amazing... but the supplement one... wow! I must alert you, however, that while the "tense" part may be true, the "plump" part is not. The anagram is hilarious, though, because I know that's what we all think when being supplemented!

Heather... watch out! Way past midnight can very quickly turn into way past 4:00 a.m.!

Heather said...

Hey Abby...I do have a problem staying up late...like you mentioned, I say, "oh, I'll go to be at 11:00" and sure enough, it ends up being 2 am! I tend to go into zone mode with the computer at night and this whole anagram thing I can see becoming my "escape" unfortunately!

Heather said...

OKay Brie brain...thanks for making that clear, the month I mean. I'm home now and thanks to you, I now have my head screwed on right. July. July. July. July when?

Heather said...

Oh my gosh, I can't believe I'm responding so much to this...okay, so I looked up the anagram for my name and it's "Hate Her"....how lovely. Then, I looked up my full name (including my last name) and it's "Healthcare Loopy"...perfect, huh? And then I looked up my appalling principal (who I absolutely despise) and "Palate Walrus" was my favorite, with "A pasture wall" being my second favorite. She's such an a-hole. Okay, I'll stop writing now.

b said...

H, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to call you Hate Her from now on...or maybe He Hater. Pretty much amazing!

It's the 28th. God's favorite day.

Though the anagrams are perfectly wonderful, I'm especially enjoying the possibly un-intended pun! Check it out:
"For example, an anagram for fart would be raft. Not a very, well, polite example, but you get my drift."
RAFT=DRIFT...get it??
Brie,knowing you (which I couldn't resist saying...since I don't really know you) you intended that.
I thought it funny. :)

Heather said...

"Hate Her".....Hmmmm...I think that'll totally lift my self-esteem.....great idea! :)

Oops, I forgot I wasn't going to write anymore. Enough is enough! Okay, I give up, I'm gonna go do progress reports and report cards. Should I fail everyone? I'm very tempted.

b said...

Kathy...so cool you caught that! I wasn't sure anybody would. :)

And H, I'm *pretty sure* you should just fail every kindergartner in your class. Though, it's hard to picture you being the evil teacher everybody hates - too impossible! I would love to see the parents come storming to your home with their failed little ones trailing behind...(!)

Kathy with a K said...

so, i had to go check out the anagram server, and I had to go and type in "anorexia nervosa" (if for no other reason than for all the cool letter combinations it offers...) and here's my favorite:

Ovarian Reason Ex

b said...

Ooh, K! Very prolific! Putting eating disorder in the server brought up garnered idiots, which felt about right!

P.S. I love my ovaries!

Krista said...

I found another cool one. Recovery is "very core." My name comes up with "at risk." Hmmmm.

Krista said...

I also put in Dustin and got Nudist! I just peed a little. The damn things having a kid does to your body.

Paige said...

That is cool Brie! I love anagrams.

Courtney said...

These are so much fun, like everyone else I am now addicted! I'm either "Nonfat Concerns Cry Out" or "Nutty for Soccer". I definitely needed a good laugh so thanks for posting this!
