Huge?

I don't know what to make of this. I wouldn't know Hugh Jackman if I tripped over him but I know how to spell his name. 

Sure he's big but is he huge? Maybe in Australia. Perhaps they ran out of Hs. If I'd run out of Hs I'd have used an S.

HAHAHHA! I made a faux pas with his name too.

I was talking to my friend a couple weeks ago about the movie, Australia and he asked, "Who's in it?"

I said, "Nicole Kidman and Jack Hughman." He was like, "WHO?"

I said, "Wolverine from XMen!!"

Anyway, I realized I messed up his name. :-)

That's so funny. I wouldn't know him from Adam either, however his name is spelt.

Maybe thats how he got the sexiest man alive award.

Yes, you could take the first name as an adjective and the second as a noun used as a metaphor.

My first name in real life is Hugh. My first time overseas I was stunned by Spaniards' pronunciation of this name - several nearly asphyxiated themselves with all the glottals. Later in Africa, English learners routinely "corrected" Hugh into Huge and my second name "Brian" into Brain. I still get letters from Africa addressed to Huge Brain. But my favorite letters come from India, where I was an honorary Major, and are addressed to Major Huge Brain.

This one made me laugh out loud. And, Benjamin's comments made me laugh even harder.

Benjamin, now you've let the cat out of the bag. Major Huge Brain, priceless.

Haha! That's great! I laughed out loud and had to share with my hubbby...although I wouldn't know if I tripped over him, either!

The "snow" there looks about like what we normally get here. Slush and gross. Not this time! Thanks for visiting my blog. It's nice to be back.
