I am sick of hearing this phrase. Although the phrase is nothing new, for some reason I have been hearing this phrase way too much lately too keep my sanity. I first noted hearing it when the Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees used it to describe his relationship to Derrick Jeter during the 2007 off season and then from there it seems I have been hearing the phrase at least once a day in my office.

I think the phrase is perfect for those times when you need to say something but have nothing to say. But really people stop using it for your answer to everything.

Athlete's have been using this phrase for years in an attempt to sum up their troubles. Infact USA Today awarded the phrase the #1 Cliche of 2004. (USA Today)

The many meanings of "it is what it is":

  • A phrase that seems to simply state the obvious but actually implies helplessness.
  • Meanings it is not going to change, so deal with it or don't.
  • Do not over think the situation. a reminder to keep things simple, dont over analyze things, or a way to put a definition on something thats hard to explain.
  • Normally used to describe something of irrelevance or an acceptance of the situation.
  • Used primarily to cause confusion to the listener.

[Mood: in Pain]
[Music: Beatles - Let it Be]

I was going to try and post every blog with my mood as blah. I thought that would be original and fun. And I am always in that mood anyway. Blah is always my demeanor... not too excited, not too depressed(just mildly apparantly). Writing about this made me look up the word on
blah     /blɑ/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[blah] 
Key - Show IPA Pronunciation Slang.
noun 1. nonsense; rubbish: What they say is blah.
2. the blahs, a feeling of physical uneasiness, general discomfort, or mild
depression; malaise: After the long weekend many workers had the
Monday-morning blahs.
adjective 3. insipid; dull; uninteresting.
Synonyms 1. bunkum, humbug, hooey, eyewash, twaddle, bosh.

Great so that means my mood fits the perfect stereotype for an accountant as insipid, dull, and interesting..What a great word and great new phrase "Monday Morning Blahs" I will have to use that one around the office.

Well the reason I did not set my mood as blah today is my leg is freaking killing me. And my whole body feels like its sleeping. I am either not getting enough sleep or I sit too much. I guess sitting while working a 7.5 hour shift, driving two hours/a day then sitting doing B.S on the computer for another 3 hours while at home can not help my fitness.

On Saturday I am going skiing for this first time. I am going have to do a Google search on tips because I do not know what the heck it is all about. I figured I will try it out though because it is one of those things everyone should do at least once. You know what I think the scariest part is getting of the ski lift the first time. I can just see me falling on my ass or having them have to stop the thing for me to get off. It should be fun though and besides the fact that I have to wake up at 6am I am looking forward to it.

Well I gotta get some sleep...
