A to Z – Geez…

More specifically-

Geez O Pete
LOCATION: Detroit
TRANSLATION: An exclamation similar to “Goodness Gracious.”
Presumably, this term is related to Jesus and St. Peter.

Who knew? This is not at all what my “G” post was going to be about but whilst scanning Google for an appropriate meme I came across this lit’l gem of wisdom and thought I’d share.
Is the saying “Geez O Pete” really just a Michigan thing?
Please weigh in with your answers because I’m pretty sure it’s not but what do I know?
My real “G” post was going to be, “Geez O’ Pete” is that big ‘ol preggo giraffe EVER going to have that baby giraffe??? I’ve read that giraffes stay pregnant for close to 15 months. NO THANKS! I’ve tuned into the giraffe cam once or twice and it was like watching paint dry or the grass grow. For a while, I thought it was just a big ‘ol internet April Fool’s Day joke but it’s been going on and on and on and apparently, it’s the real deal. Criminey…

For those of you interested in watching the nothingness – at the moment – of ‘April the Giraffe’ NOT giving birth, here’s a link.
As predicted by our sometimes right, most of the time wrong, weather guys, we actually did have steady rain today and it is a little more than chilly. I could almost turn the heat on but I won’t. Just gonna’ wear sweaters n’ socks n’ fuzzy slippers, drink lots of hot coffee and snuggle with the pup.
I actually spent very little time snuggling under the covers today altho Netflix was on all day. Mostly I played with my girly toys and made more personalized mugs, wine glasses, and t-shirts. I’ll post some pics when I take some. I think tomorrow I will work on totes.

IN OTHER NEWS: – Just when I was looking forward to eating more salad…
“Two people were recommended for post-exposure rabies treatment after a consumer in Florida reported finding a dead bat in a packaged salad mix, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Saturday.”
You can read all about it, here.

Happy Saturday folks! Enjoy!

  1. A dead bat?!? That’s the height no? Ok I watched the giraffe cam for a minute and almost fell asleep. She budged not at all! You crack me up every time you mention “my girlie toys” Ducking and running away before you throw something at me! 🙂 What a glorious feeling, Sunday!

  2. God I would die if I found a large dead critter in my food. *shudder* As to your expression, I have a friend from the Philly area and she used to say, ‘Geez-to-Petes’. Similar. I picked it up too from hanging out w/ her.

  3. Bats in the salad. I’ve heard some people like to change up their salads, but think this is a little extreme.
    Girlie Toys – I really don’t have a dirty mind, but …
    Never heard of Geez O Pete, sorry.

  4. OMG, too gross about that salad, ugh! I have really never heard the expression “Geez O Pete” before. Seriously, never, and I’ve moved around a lot and lived on both the East and the West Coasts. But I have heard of “Geez-o-man” and “Geez Louise” and “Oh geez!” That quote is too funny. 🙂
