Of Entities and Other Stuff I Don't Understand

Hubby had a few beers and decided to work on the computer last night writing programs for work.

Me--What'cha doin'?

Hubby--Working on this program so I could BLah Blah Blah Blahbitty Blah BLAH!

Me--You lost me at program.

Hubby--(showing me an autocad diagram) This is a Blahbitty "Entity" blah and when I mark this as 42 and then this side as 42, the line between is 10.

Me--Perfect sense.(rolling my eyes) Math, I love it. Wait?! Is this math or some other absurd cool act of Engineering thing?

Hubby--It's computer programming language, it's called LISP.

Me--(hands on hips angry)You're not making fun of My Boy are you?!

Hubby--No, (laughing) it means LBlah Iblah Sblah Pblah.

Me--I'm going to watch mind-numbing t.v., thanks for the lesson though.

Hubby--Wait...

Me--I'm too dumb to listen anymore.

    that how i get when hubby starts talking about work. i used to work for the same company so i know what he's talking about, but i just don't care anymore. so he just drones on and i just nod my head. sorry hunny, it's boring!

    As much as I sooooo don't understand this language either, I really wish my hubbie did. It seems like it would really come in handy when we needed computer help. :)

  4. Tara R. said...

    Oh my... I can really relate to this. After awhile, when my hubs is trying to talk to me about his work, he starts sounding like the adults on the Charlie Brown cartoons - wha, wha, whaaaa... have no better idea of what he does than before he started talking.

    LOL..I have been caught way to many times "not" listening to dh "interesting" explanations.

  6. Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

    Hahahaha

    That's how it all sounds to me too.

    Now when I talk about a good deal and am all excited and share with the hubby he gives me a great blank stare and I can actually see blah blah blah running through his head.

    Love the new signature ;) Cute Font!

    I sometimes wonder if my husband really proposed or if I misunderstood his yada, yada, yada!
    Funny post! Melissa

  9. Tena said...

    I would have left to watch TV as well, lol!
    I hear Charlie Brown's teacher when my Dh talks about certain things too, I just go to my happy place and tune him out, lol!

    u aren't dumb, it just isn't interesting stuff huh!

  11. Jo-Jo said...

    I have heard that conversation before with my hubby, except it wasn't computer programming, it was a history lesson.

  12. Rachel said...

    LOL -- that sounds like the convos my husband tries to have with me about the stock market.

    Love your new signature, by the way.

  13. Christine said...

    ROFL! I have that same conversation with my boyfriend! My eyes glaze over, and I start thinking of twitter, then he says "Let me explain", and I say "why? I'm not going to listen". LOL! Good to know I'm not the only one!

  14. Linda S said...

    Tell him next time to talk your "half life"...she should understand...

  15. Janine said...

    Haha. Too funny. I also glaze over when our IT guys at work start trying to explain what they're doing to fix my computer. Uh huh? Uh HUH?

  16. ciara said...

    haha i wouldn't know what lblah iblah sblah pblah is either. shoot, i tried to teach myself html coding...forget it. LOL

  17. AmyG said...

    LOL, I do the same thing when Michael starts about the computer stuff. I just walk away.

  18. Crazed Mom said...

    This is why I had to take algebra2 three times to pass it. And what the hell am I ever gonna use it for except to get my AA? NADA!!

  19. Merrie said...

    Don't you love having a smart husband, though? I know I do.

    Oh, and I keep stealing things from you. Namely, the signature idea. Hope you don't mind!

  20. JenniBeanV said...

    Mmmm Hmmmm...

    Just smile and nod, Jen. That's what I do!

  21. Amy said...

    I think that's what my hubby hears when he, thinking he's being nice, asks about what I'm looking at it my pretty, new Sephora catalog.

  23. Zip n Tizzy said...

    I WISH I could understand it... but I don't.

  24. Insane Mama said...

    YOu lost me at program too... math smart people are intimidating

  25. Jessica said...

    HAHA - that is my every day! Only I have to hear about IVs, lines, blood, guts, brains, hearts....usually over dinner. Half the time I have no idea what part of the body he is talking about...

  26. Rochelle said...

    How funny. Your hubs should get together with my hubs and see who drops first. Civil Engineer vs. Mechanical Engineer - Blah Blah Blah to the Death!!

    And not that I don't understand it...I just have better things to do like check in on my virtual bloggy girls!

  27. Mom Taxi Julie said...

    That's like my husband when he starts talking car stuff. I'm all uhhh huhhhh. Good thing there is no quiz when he stops talking.

  28. Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

    Oh, that is how I feel when anyone talks computer to me! funny, Jen!

  29. Anissa Mayhew said...

    Being married to a technogeek myself, I feel your pain...way down in the part of my brain that screams "stop it! stop it now!" when he starts with the programming mumbo jumbo.

  30. jill jill bo bill said...

    That is so funny! Lblah Iblah... I am rolling!

  31. Jill said...

    I stopped paying attention to anything my husband says about work a long, long time ago. It bores me... :)

  32. Deb said...

    My hubby is a mechanical engineer. Every other word out of his mouth sounds like blah.

  33. Lapa37 said...

    That's funny and in our house it is the opposite. I am learning how to edit the HTML on my blogger page and I try to tell my hubby what I'm doing and how proud of myself I am he is probably hearing the same blah blah as you.
    P.S. I found you on the moms helping moms page.

  34. Ann said...

    Yes Jen!!!
    I'll ask Rob how things went on his appointment and he tells me all of the details. (He's an actor who had to make a living for his family by becoming a software guy).
    He tells me this-and-that and I wonder if he can see my eyes glazing over!
    I mean, I'm honored that he thinks I understand, but, really? Honestly?

  35. samsmom said...

    That is usually when I call upon the few words I have reserved for this type of situation: really? that's interesting, hmmmmmmm, you are so smart!!! :)

  36. Jenny said...

    *snort*.......that's how I get when Erik talks football. Football for crissakes!!! At least you were blah-ing over something actually mind-numbing. I don't blame you.

  37. flickrlovr said...

    My friend is in interior design school and she had to learn AutoCAD...she tried to explain it to me once and my eyes started rolling back in my head. Much like every time my Chemistry instruction opens his mouth. All I hear is "blahhhhhhblahblaaaaah".

  38. * TONYA * said...

    oh I hear you. I stop listening when the dictionary.com word of the day appears on on the computer screen LOL.

  39. Diva Ma said...

    I know EXACTLY what you mean!

  40. Wendi said...

    I feel the same way.
    I am completely technotarded.
