I can't believe how bad you suck.


Or is it psych? Or psyche? There was a debate about the spelling of this word on the HOW Design Forum a few months ago. In the poll, the respondents voted around 70% for "psych", but in the discussion, "sike" seemed to be the spelling of choice. So, which is it? "Sike" just seems so nostalgically 80's to me, which is what I'd prefer.

Why do I ask? I'm planning a new line of cards. Preemptively named "Sikeology." The outsides will feature a certain statement, and the inside always reads "Sike." For example, "Let's Get Married!" [imagine opening card here] "Sike." What do you think??? It's about time for the term "sike" to make a comeback.

In other news, I dusted off my guitar last night to take a look at it. I seriously don't even know how to hold it. But this is how I would look if I knew what to do with it. My albums would be bipolar, with half of them amazingly hilarious and the other half insanely depressing.

I'm a smart girl, but I don't think I want to bother trying to teach myself how to play it. I need to get some lessons. And then I will be the most rockin' rockity rock star in the world!!!!!

There are regional variances to "psych" (that's how I spell it). In elementary school, "psych" was base level; if you really wanted to put emphasis on it, you'd yell "jarred". And one idiot kid tried to top that by adding "angus" – he thought that was the cat's ass. He was a doofus.

Hmmm....I saw "sike" and "Psych"...but I dunno which was the most common. What does urban dictionary say about "sike"?
