I heart Hollyisms! [ Retired Blog, NOT!!!]

Have you ever had the privilege of being on the receiving end of a "Hollyism"? Many of us have and we feel blessed to have been on the receiving end of such originality!

Good Posture, Mr. Spock

On Saturday night, we went to see Star Trek. Holly was eating dinner and gave me the Vulcan hand sign and said ‘Live long and posture.” I never knew Vulcans prided themselves on proper posture!

Gangbanged the Laser Quest Way!

So a bunch of us are out for Duncan's 30th B-day playing Laser Quest -- Quite the crowd showed up... 24-25 of us I believe... During the first game, these 8 or 9 ten year olds are with us on the field.

Note: These muchkins had pretty good aim too (although my feeling on the matter is that they had an advantage seeing as their guns were pointing automatically at our chest level).

During the lunch break between games, Holly who was commenting on how these kids had used her as target practice during this particular segment of the game belts out:

"Man, these kids really gangbanged me in there"

At the dinner table at Holly's...

We are talking about celebrity sightings...

Holly: So we were at a restaurant one time in Toronto and we saw Vivica Fox over at another table.

The thing is, her and her friends were dressed up really crazy-like...they were dressed like wiggers!

(commenter note: If you don't know what a wigger is, do yourself a favour and look up the term to see the hilarity of the statement.)

Rat King!

In the evening at Matt's cottage, we started a game of Trivial Pursuit 90's edition, and were playing in teams.

To give a little background, 2 of the entertainment questions so far had to do with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, one of which had Splinter as the answer.
So as a joke, a few times when someone really didn't know the answer, they'd guess Splinter.

Then Holly's team was posed the question of who was the president of the major league baseball player's association during the lock-out. Someone shouted out "the Rat King!" and Holly in all seriousness asked "really, was it the rat king?" Then we all broke out in laughter, and Holly said 'No, really, I don't know much about baseball!" Lol.

"Me, Alex, and I"

A bunch of us are sitting beside the lake at Matt's cottage, and Holly mentioned her trip to Jamaica. I couldn't remember if they went there for vacation or for a friend's wedding, so I asked. Her reply was "Yeah. Me, Alex, and I went for his friend's wedding." Guess Alex is getting 2 Holly's for the price of one!

Beef or Burger?

Holly, Joelle and Ryan at the table at Matt's cottage eating their supper...

Holly (holding the burger in her hand): "Is this hamburger or is it beef?"

Joelle and I both look at each other with incredulous looks.

One in a Hundred!

This is not really a Hollyism but it's worth mentioning. At the Easter potluck dinner...

Holly: You can't masterbate on Good Friday or Easter.

Holly: I don't know what it's like to get punched in the balls.

James: What, you never stubbed your vagina before?

Holly: Ya, I stubbed my vagina once on a bicycle.

Mario Party Shafter

The other night, the four of us (Holly, Alex, Ferda & Me) were playing Mario Party over at the Pimpson's residence. I had selected Wario as my player, then Holly says:

Holly: "Who's that man in the yellow hat?"

And without missing a beat, Ferda sings out: "SHAFT!"

[perhaps you needed to be there. Peace - James]

D.N.D! It's Dyno-mite!

The scene: Ferda's living room, circa, her birthday 2006.

The moment: When a tune comes on the radio.

Holly: I love this tune! It rocks! What does DND stand for anyhow?
Everyone: What?
Holly: Listen! The song goes "D N D. It's dynomite!" (at this point, I'm sure everyone can figure out this is the song TNT by AC/DC)
Everyone: (fits of laughter) Uh, I don't know what DND could stand for Holly...Dungeons and Dragons? Department of National Defence?

*note, read Trish's blog for a little more on the scene that night here.*

Sigh...another case of misheard lyrics. This reminds me of the Live at Benoroya Hall album by Pearl Jam in which Eddie Vedder proclaims that Mike McCready always thought that the KISS song went like this:

"Iiiiiii...wanna rock and roll all night, and part of every day."

Carefull around the Wii and Holly

Luckily I got a warning from the people behind Holly before I got a Wii remote in the back of the head.

UPDATE - As Palmer has noted, this is not really a Hollyism.

At the Hallowe'en Party on Saturday Night...

Holly: Hey Ryan, can I give you the shocker?
Ryan: Uh…do you mean the Vulcan Nerve Pinch?
Alex: (rolling over with laughter)

***special note from the Palmer*** Holly's Vulcan costume was awesome!

***I have a great picture for this entry but I can't seem to upload it now. Will do so later***

The Incredible Edible Salt

After ball hockey last night, nine of us went out to the Lone Star for some food and drinks, and also to celebrate Mike G's birthday (he turned 22, btw). A few of us ate, a few didn't, a few went crazy and ordered the all-you-can-eat fajitas (they were awesome, btw).

Our beloved Holly, who currently is on a diet, held her own and ate absolutely nothing. Very impressive considering how good those chips and salsa are, and she didn't even have one. I applaud her on that. However...

The conversation quickly changed to how salty everything was there; the chips, the tortillas, and probably even the chairs, in an effort to get the customer to order and drink more beer. And...

"I would keep a salt-lick at home and lick it all the time - if it didn't make me so bloated."

Pho' - tastic

So last night, Alex, Holly, Ferda and I (James) went out for pho for dinner (see super_ap) and after the soup arrived, Ferda was trying to add some of the hoysin (spell?) sauce to her soup. But the bottle was nearly empty so it required some shaking (think ketchup) to get it to pour out. Ferda couldn't quite get any out, so Holly grabbed the bottle from her and gave it some hard-core wrist action.

So now we're all looking at Holly going to town on this bottle, thinking WTF, when Ferda says:
"Ugh, Holly, what are you doing?"

Then Holly says:
"Well I have practice, you see, this is how I beat Alex."

NOTE: It should be noted, that Holly meant to say: 'this is how I PUNCH Alex'.

Laying the smack down

Holly (talking about Alex): I really hate it when you wrestle me.


Especially when hard.

Holly: "My new cellphone has this cool option where I can use BlueNose to transfer music files from one phone to another."

Ryan: "Bluenose? Do you mean BlueTooth?"

Here's a link to some information on BlueTooth for those who don't know about this wireless protocol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth

Meanwhile, here's some information for you all on the good ship Bluenose. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluenose

The poor vegetarians

while out for lunch with miz queen bee herself...

Holly to waiter: Can I get the chili salad with the vegetarian chili but with the spice of the texas red hot chili.

Waiter: Ya, the chef can mix those up for you.

Holly: I just want the spice from the texas red hot.

Ferda to waiter: Don't worry she's not vegetarian.

Holly interjecting: Ya, I'm not a vegetarian if I get a little bit of meat based chili mixed in I won't die.

Waiter: uhhh... as opposed to the vegetarians who die everyday from meat based chili?

Holly and Jeff

Holly and Jeff Lahey have been getting cozy: The pair was spotted kissing in South Keys this weekend, PEOPLE reports. This, after a lengthy conversation about Holly's trip to Las Vegas to visit Ryan Seacrest. The rumour surfaced at Melissa Lee's BBQ! Gossip columnists across North America are in panic about this one, but only we have the details here!

More from Hollywood
Holly and Alba: Tension Rises!
Star Tracks: James Simpson Writes Poety!

On Saturday, Holly, 29, and Lahey, 25, the soon-to-be ex-husband of Jessica Alba, arrived at the BBQ in the Craig Henry Village neighborhood outside Ottawa at about 5 p.m. in separate cars. In the parking lot, the two kissed then walked hand-in-hand, smiling and chatting the entire way as they headed for the backyard.

There, they shared a table on the patio where they gazed into each other's eyes and held hands. Eventually, Holly planted a kiss on Lahey's hand – and he returned the gesture, kissing hers. They then kissed again on the lips.

They left the BBQ at 8:45 p.m. in the same car together! Lahey has a home in Westlake Village.

On Friday, Holly filed a 17-page court document claiming that her estranged husband, Brad Pitt, had threatened to kill her. The actress also claims that during their marriage, Pitt abused prescription medication, had violent mood swings, was a compulsive gambler and visited pornography Web sites featuring "very young girls." Pitt has called Holly's claims "vile" and "baseless."

Holly originally filed for divorce in March of last year, when she was six months pregnant with the couple's son Jamal. The pair appeared to briefly reconcile after Jamal's birth in June, but on Jan. 4, they requested that their divorce proceed with a private arbitrator.

In February, Lahey – who's the lead singer for the Backstreet Boys – split from Alba, his wife of 3 years. The couple has an 1-year-old daughter, Ava.

Holly and Alba are pals who grew even closer during Holly's split from Pitt. Alba, who starred with Pitt in the remake for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, attended Holly's baby shower before she gave birth to her son Jamal – and helped take care of the baby after he was born.

The Horney Toad

When discussing what pubs are nearby on Bank Street:

Holly: Well, we could go to "The Horney Toad".

Amanda: There's not actually a pub called "The Horney Toad"! is there?!?

Holly: Well, it's called "The" something "Toad". I think it must be "The Horney Toad".

Amanda (sarcastically): Yeah, 'cuz toad's are known for always getting it on.

Holly: They are always getting it on, aren't they?

Alex: If it is named that, it's because their skin is bumpy, not 'cuz they're always getting it on. They're not rabbits!

Holly: oh. okay then. If you say so.

Note: There is a pub on Bank St. called The Thirsty Toad.

Hollyisms - a defiinition

It seems like the obvious first post.

We all know it when we hear one? Just what is a "Hollyism"?

Hollyism Hall of Fame (HHOF)

The following Hollyisms are the best of the best. They have achieved what no other Hollyisms have achieved! They are part of the HHOF!

As an hommage to Super_ap's original Hollyisms post, the First EVER HHOF Award goes to:

I've got a nasty-snatch when somebody else farts.

The SECOND Hollyism Hall of Fame Awards will take place later this Summer. Start recording your Moments of Holly now!


In lieu of Holly entering a new part of her life (moving out of her old place), Artoo and Palmer dedicated Holly's own shrine in Internet land: I heart Hollyisms!

This website will not just be populated by us, but by all of you who has a Hollyism to report! So if you wish to have access to the blog, get in touch with us so you can have the privilege of entering your own Hollyism into the databank!

We recommend posting one Hollyism per "Moments of Holly" in the databank. Have fun and be nice and respectful!

This idea came from the poll that super_ap conducted on his website awhile back. You may find the poll results here.
