Today is Tuesday. Which means it’s time for Random Tuesday Thoughts with Keely at the Un-Mom. I love this event. It gives me a chance to spout random stuff at all of you and disguise it as a blog carnival or whatever they call it. Hehe, poor you.
I’ve had a lot of random stuff go on so be prepared.
Today I’m also posting over at Venus vs Mars. I have a ‘difference of opinion’ question about religion today so go check it out.
I have a bloggy friend who is sick. And that sucks. She is young and beautiful and should be having the best time of her life in high school but she’s stuck in a hospital. I was delighted to hear that she enjoyed my pictures last week though. So Victoria 🙂 be prepared. I’m going to give you a picture everyday this week if it helps you feel better.
Yesterday I got the brilliant idea to clean out the fridge. I admit I normally do this once a week on a shopping day so that I can actually fit all the food I just bought into the fridge. Well, of course there’s a bowl of rice in there and of course I dropped the thing on the recently washed floor. Did I mention we do not have foot kicker thingies on the bottom of our cabinets? We’ll be finding rice for the next ten months.
This is my baby girl two years ago when she lived thousands of miles from us on the other side of the world. Five months before we met.
Here she is now:
When I decided to change my password for my email I never realized that meant my blackberry would no longer receive emails. Apparently they don’t like it when you change your password without telling them and kundenservice gets all up in your face about it (but apparently not in your email account.) I knew it was a bit fishy when I didn’t get an email all day… All fixed now but let it be a warning to all of you. Never change your passwords. Ever.
My buddy Crash, as in the Crash Test Dummy Diaries whom I luv posted that picture of a kane spider on her blog again yesterday. Dang it. Took me forever to get rid of that image the last time she put it up there. Crash, please have mercy on a girl at 7:30 in the morning okay? No more spidey pics. You. Are. Creeping. Me. Out.
Yesterday, it was such a day! I also got a Facebook request from a girl/woman/whatever I haven’t talked to in 7 years and haven’t seen since we were kids. It’s incredible how wonderful it is to ‘see’ her and hear what she’s been up to. I hear about her via my parents who are friends with her parents and such. I’m starting to believe Facebook is not evil.
I posted about a book find (again yesterday) and decided I needed to get more with the program. I recently read Anna Karenina (and loved it by the way) War and Peace is a lofty aspiration on the shelf I haven’t tackled yet but plan to by Christmas. I ordered a few collections by Twain and if you can believe it Catcher in the Rye, which I have never read. Where the Red Fern Grows – yes. A Separate Peace – yes (and will re-read it to this day I love that book.) All Quiet on the Western Front – yes. But Catcher in the Rye I hadn’t read. So I plan to. Should be here by the end of the week along with Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Now I just need someone to watch the kids…any volunteers??
Some people in the blog world bug me, I mean really bug me and I simply can’t figure them out. And yet I still ‘listen’ to them.
At the end of my street is a produce stand that just opened again Sunday for the season. We bought the yummy ugly bumpy apples that I loved last year. I was so disappointed though, they were mushy.
Did I mention my son is on two weeks of holiday that started Monday? Two Weeks. Oh yeah, it’s going to be a looong two weeks. Pardon me if I don’t visit your blogs or leave my usually sparkling comments. The kids may have duct taped my mouth and tied me to a chair while running around like the lovely hooligans they are.
UPDATE: I am FREAKIN’ Genuis. I decided to make the apple thing I mentioned in my comments. Guess who just threw brown sugar all over the kitchen (floor and counter this time). I give up. It’s 4:30 happy hour is close enough…
