Random Tuesday Thoughts: Very Random and Very Tuesday

Amazingly I didn’t write today’s Random Tuesday Thoughts post in advance. That’s Random. Anyway if you want to play along with this awesome little event go to Keely at the Un-Mom and linky up.  It’s lots of fun and completely Random. (I forgot the fugly button at first.  Sorry).
How many days in a row can you feed your kids chicken nuggets before it’s child abuse?  I’m just curious….
If we open the cupboard and don’t find anything we like to eat what compels us to open it two or three more times in the hope that something will magically appear?  Desperation?
I’m not feeling overly Random today (and I don’t know why I keep capitalizing Random) which in itself is weird.
Anyone else scared of this swine flu thing going on?  Pig sickness.  What’s next?  Oh that’s right another salmonella outbreak.  This time with alfalfa sprouts.  I forgot.  Is it just me or is anyone else planning to start growing or raising all their own food now?
Why is my son home on holidays from school more than he’s actually at school?  Again he has Thursday and Friday off.  I am not sure what the enormous school tuition is for exactly because it surely can’t be for educational purposes!
The pollen is so thick here I sat outside for five minutes the other day and my hand was covered in nasty green pollen in minutes.  Eww.  My car has a permanent green tinge even hours after you wash it.
We are solidly  (bangingly, knockingly, noisily!) into week three of the neighbors ROOF project.  I have never in my life seen men take so many breaks nor go so freakin’ slow at replacing a roof.  I’m no expert but I don’t think it should really be taking this long.  And frankly, they give me the creeps in the fact that they can stare in my kitchen window.  Diet Coke construction workers they are not.  *For those not in the know these are the diet coke guys
I really can’t think of anything else Random.  That really is weird.
This week I am taking time to mention some of the great bloggers I’ve come across.  Yesterday I told you about Clark Kent’s Lunchbox.  Today I want to tell you about Pearl at Pearl, Why you little… Pearl is a great blogger whom I suspect is wanted in several states not least because of her counterfeit badminton coupon scheme at the local community center.  On a regular basis she sits next to some interesting people on the bus and I never fail to walk away from reading her blog going “Whew!  Glad I’m not Pearl!”  Filled with humor and a dash of sass and insight Pearl never fails to make me smile.  
Please stop by Pearl, Why you little… and say hi.

  1. Our “chicken nuggets” is beefaroni. Our daughter will eat it every meal if we let her, and sometimes that’s the only thing we can get her to eat 🙂 This Swine Flu is a bit worrisome for me, too. Especially since it’s only Spring; hopefully it won’t get a whole lot worse.

  2. I can’t tell you about the chicken nugget thing – my youngest is 14 and when he spent spring break with his father and stepmother, I found out he spent the entire week eating nothing but processed, breaded chicken products. I’m not sure if this was by choice or if it was due to the fact that he has a 2-year-old brother there, but it didn’t seem to bother him so I was like, hey – at least he ate.

  3. Chicken nuggets child abuse? Oh crap! I’ve decided that the Swine Flu isn’t going on my list of things to worry about. I refuse to walk around in a Michael Jackson mask.

  4. Congratulations on accepting that you’re FIRST over at the Un-Mom! Your comment was hilarious…I was mixing cooking and blogging the other day, and the rice totally boiled over all over my stove top. I haven’t seen a construction worker yet that looked like one in the Diet Coke commercial. It’s a shame.

  6. Princess Nagger would eat chicken nuggets every day if I let her…luckily we live too far away from McD’s to make it a habitual thing…but now it’s become an ‘expectation’ on her part every time I do the bi-monthly grocery shopping… ;)I’ve done the opening and closing of cupboard doors in the hopes that it might be magical, too…Happy Random Tuesday! 😉

  7. My chicken nuggets….Gogurts (those squeeze things with yogurt in them that are just loaded with high fructose corn syrup). Some days it is all my kid will eat, I swear.I’m worried about the swine flu as well. Pork already upsets my stomach and now this? Dang it!Sorry about the creepy roofing guys. No fun when they can’t at least look good with their shirt off is it?

  8. I wasn't feeling particularly random either but you managed to pull it off. I'm not sure about the chicken nuggets question, ours is chicken fingers or taquitos, sometimes pb&j. Fruit cups are a staple in the kid's diets but I try to be good and rinse them first to get the “light” syrup off. Graham goes to a Jewish preschool two days a week and they're closed ALL THE TIME, it's NUTS.

  9. I will stop by the other blogs- I always love to discover new ones.As to feeding the kids the same thing . . . my son is very picky and once only ate 3 different foods for about 2 years solid. It’s so sickening to watch! You’re fine on the chicken nuggets thing!I think your neighbor is not getting their money’s worth!

  10. OMG–I totally forgot about that diet Coke commercial. Of course I had to go and watch it. Not worried about the swine flu. Maybe I should be but I’m not.

  11. Love the randomness.Ummm, I think you can feel your kids chicken nuggets everyday and it isn’t child abuse. I admitted to neglecting to feed my kids lunch the whole week of spring break and Kristina told me my kids are eating like kings. Tell your kids that if they complain.

  12. Congrats on 400 posts coming up! This swine flu is scaring me. Mainly b/c my husband is a pharmacist and seems worried…..it doesn’t help that Tamaflu is not available in the states right now except what is already on the shelves.

  13. Pollen. Yuck. One time, a doctor put me on a new medication. He said to call if I saw any side effects. I went running, and after my run I saw that my sweat was YELLOW! I called the doctor. He told me to stop the medication IMMEDIATELY.After showering, I realized the yellow was just pollen. Doh!

  14. Stopping by for RTT 🙂 Chicken nuggets & PB&J are lunch time every.single.day at our house. The one known as Momma dare not vary from either of these lest I be in the mood for a major meltdown.

  15. Fancy you should mention chicken nugget abuse right after I stockpile a ton of those little buggers as back ups. The police will just have to look in my freezer and think I’m forcing them on more than just one poor toddler.

  16. Those were pretty random! Yes, chicken nuggets should be outlawed..pretty sure they are somewhere. My kids are now into dry cereal, cinammon grahams.Swine flu? Good lord, I AM a bit worried. I would hate to go out that way. And thanks for the new blog recommendations!

  17. Wow! Great site. Found you through CK Lunchbox. My ex cited in court once that I must be endangering my two boys becuase they new that the #3 meal at Carl’s was the Western Bacon Cheeseburger. Needless to say the Judge laughed. Oh yeah, a roof should only take one day to finish. Two at the most.

  18. Chicken nuggets are treats all the best moms give. That’s what I say… Also-I posted about swine flu too… This was my first random post tuesday, and I just blog hopped to some others…and I enjoyed reading yours!

  19. I’m a firm believer that you can never go wrong with chicken nuggets. We sadly don’t have any frozen foods like this in India – so I have to make my own. I usually dredge my chicken through pureed vegetables and flax seed before breading and baking them – and I make so many so I can freeze them for later.

  20. we have hot dogs and Ramen noddles instead of chicken nuggets. I am also considering the growing our own food stand although i wouldn’t be able to raise the food, so we would have to become vegetarians.
