It’s Random Tuesday. Sit down, shut-up and hold on. There are no other choices. See Keely at The UnMom for more.
Have you ever made a peanut butter sandwich with a spoon? Because for the last two days I have. Every knife in the house is either missing or dirty. How is that possible? I’m the only one allowed to use the knives! How can they all be gone? And now all the spoons are gone too. Someone better get over here and do the damn dishes alright?
I discovered this great new site. Thanks to Becky (at Mommy Wants Vodka) and Badass Geek the creator (I can’t wait to see what kind of hits I get from that one). It’s called Fiction Five Hundred. The idea is to write a 500 word story. No MORE than 500 words. I thought it would actually be hard but I sat straight down and wrote mine in about fifteen minutes. Huh. I let CP read it and he said and I quote “that’s freakin’ dark“. It’s not rainbows and kittens my darlings, but I am thrilled with the piece. It will appear at Fiction Five Hundred on January 1, 2010! In the meantime check out the site, it’s fantastic.
Where’s the spellchecker on the New Editor feature on blogger? Am I really, really blond (always possible even though my current shade is something akin to black) or is there not a spell checker?
I won something! I won something! Thanks to Gina at My Own Brand of Crazy. I didn’t even enter and I still won, how awesome is that? Granted I won a broken cell phone someone donated to her boy scout garage sale. But wahoo! I won something! Thanks Gina!
Yesterday morning I went out to walk chick to the bus (at the end of the driveway) and fell spectacularly on my butt. Let’s be thankful I wasn’t carrying Chick at the time. Black Ice + Black Driveway + Me= Laughter for the neighbors. Dang if my BUTT doesn’t hurt…not to mention my ego.
I’m giving away a really, really cool automatic wine opener thingy from CSN (they also have awesome wine racks). I’m going to test out my own and write up a review then offer one up to all of you. Be on the lookout for that, it’ll be coming soon. Who doesn’t need to uncork some alcohol over the holidays? If you can face your family (or your spouses) sober, more power to you.
I have 9 unread messsages according to my blackberry. But you know what? I can’t find them on the dang thing! Since I have this habit of never deleting emails. EVER. (One of my email addresses has 4934 emails in in 🙂 If you emailed me and I never responded, sorry about that.
I signed up for Neil’s Great Interview Experiment thanks to reading about it over at SciFi Dad’s place. When I sent over my questions to the blogger I’m interviewing (SnarkyKisses), it made her laugh. I hope that was a good thing…
The other day Thor had scrambled eggs, four pieces of sausage, two pieces of bacon and a piece of toast and asked for more. He’s not even 8 yet. What happens when he turns into a teen?
The Wall Street Journal started arriving yesterday thanks to Thor’s ‘spend them or lose them’ airline miles swap. I love this paper. I have no idea when I’m going to find time to read it but hey…I love this paper.
Do you have a Random affliction? There’s only one cure. See Dr. Keely at the UnMom. I hear she works for free.
