It’s Random Tuesday. The first Random Tuesday of the new year. Yippeee! Party like it’s 2010. Go visit Keely for more of the revelry. It’s super duper easy – The UnMom.
My first Random of the new year is this. Mummer’s Parade. Seriously? WTH that it is All Day Long. I’ve lived here ten years (well I’ve been here for 6 months, this time anyway) and I still don’t get it. Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I’m on board with that (though I don’t think I’ve ever watched it). A couple hours comatose in front of the tube. No problem. But all day? Yeah, I’m not feeling the Mummer’s Love.
Like the title suggests, SHOCKO! We’re moving! I know you were all surprised because it’s not like we can stay in the same place more than one year. I am going to give you clues and see how many of you can figure out the where though.
- Population as of 2000 – 2,893 WTH am I going to do in a town that small?
- This town is located on the edge of a major city (thank goodness) and you can drive to two other states in only 20 minutes
- The major city’s airport is actually located in this state though the major city itself is not.
- Abraham Lincoln was born in this state
- It is the 15th state, entered statehood in 1792
- We are moving South and West of our current location in Philadelphia
Leave your guesses in the comments (try not to cheat). You won’t win anything but you’ll look cool for knowing obscure facts.
Did you know that if you have a Starbucks card (thanks Mom and Dad!) you can register it at Starbucks.com/rewards and on your b-day you get a free drink? Pfft. A free drink, I know. Boring. BUT you get two hours of FREE wi-fi every time you buy a drink. Score. I can go and buy a latte with my card (which is refillable, umm the card not the latte) and then spend two hours doing whatever on the internet from the store. Yea for caffiene lovers everywhere!
I’m really not this chipper. I’m still reeling from the idea I’m moving to MYSTERY STATE. You would be too if you knew where we are going.
I don’t know when I’m moving. Depends if Crazy Landlady (whom much has been written about in this here blog) will let us leave early. If not we go back to Single Parenthood for me and Commuting for CP. Thankfully, it’s only an hour long flight. On a little plane. I think I’d rather drive the 8.57 hours with two kids and no dvd entertainment system. (Guess what I want for my kids birthday’s this year?)
My MIL had a New Years Day family thing at her house. SIL lives there and has a wii. Have you ever watched other adults you’re related to by marriage playing wii? It is So Much Fun. Talk about competitive! Geesh Uncle G! It’s only bowling. Nah, it was great fun and I loved watching everyone. Surprisingly, it was a really relaxing time too.
While playing Hide the Stormtrooper with CP, I rounded up all Chick’s dwarfs (from Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs) and tied them together with thread and had the Stormtrooper holding them hostage. I even went so far as to place a sign on them that said Rebel Scum. CP found them and then untied them and lined them up with a note that said Stop Whistling While You Work. Ha. I have to say thank you to Stefan from the Stormtrooper a Day project because he’s given me some inspiration.
If you’ve got Random to spew then head over to Keely’s where she may not make a living from Random, but hey, she’s funny. The Un Mom.
