Random thoughts popping into my head

  1. Well, once again, I should be doing laundry...It's not that I really mind laundry, it's just the fact that I have to go down to the basement to do it. If we're ever fabulously wealthy (or just not poor) I will have the laundry in my closet.
  2. I'm leaving tomorrow for a weekend in Michigan with my writing group girls, although one has sadly been stricken with the flu. I am going for my flu shot at HQ tomorrow morning. Having the flu last year was the worst three weeks - the whole not being able to get enough oxygen thing sucks ass.
  3. Honeycrisp apples dipped in Greek Gods honey yogurt is seriously amazing.
  4. I am in charge of dinner Saturday night and I bought steaks. They look delicious. I'm also making baked sweet potatoes.
  5. While I was shopping, Charlie was getting pissed off about being left at home so he took a bunch of cat shit out of the litter box and put it under a chair in a pile. Nasty.
  6. I coached speech on Wednesday. I have two girls doing a cutting from the play I mentioned before (What They Have) and I joked to the one who is supposed to be pregnant that the last girl I coached in a duo who was playing pregnant ended up GETTING pregnant. So she better be careful. I hope she doesn't end up pregnant.
  7. After I coached them, the one I joked with stayed to work on her poetry program which is about ad0ption. It was totally an infertility themed night, and somehow I ended up mentioning that we were infertile. She gave me the "You should adopt!" speech, which included mentioning her parents had adopted three children. One "only cost $100!" because he was black. Er. Yeah. I was too tired to really respond to that properly.
  8. I got a kick ass pair of brand new Justin boots for $5 at a garage sale.
  9. I am writing on my work laptop which I have been bringing home ever since I dropped and killed my macbook. I'm hoping our friend can at least salvage my photos, which of course I never backed up.
  10. I love crunchy peanut butter.


  1. 1. Ours is in the garage.. in Florida. Not always the most fun. But it makes me happy to just walk out the door to do laundry instead of driving it to the main clubhouse like we had to do in the apt. :p

    The food.. Mmmmm.
    I love PB period.

    The adopt speech. Spare me.

  2. Listen, youre lucky to even have laundry machines... our building won't allow them, so down to the laundromat we go. Ick. Ditto on the honeycrisp apples (makes me love fall) but I am all about the smooth PB. I just bought my first jar of PB in years (DH hates it, and its not exactly on the diet plan) and I am loving it.

  3. Cannot believe the just adopt anecdote. Un-freakin-believable!

    I'll be in the good ol' mitten state in early November. Wishing you a lovely Indian summer weekend. oxoxoxo, PJ

  4. I am loving having my own washing machine this year. Now if only things didn't take 3-4 days to get dry in this soggy country ...

  5. yeah, the black ones are really cheap. WTF??????
    Sometimes it's not even worth responding to.

  6. Only-cost-$100. Shaking head in disbelief.

  7. Ours is also in the basement- stairs suck! Next house will have the washer/dryer the same level as bedrooms. But at least we have one!

    Wow- the adopt speech is ridiculous.

    Not a crunchy fan- but I love me some pb- favorite snack- pb + apples.

    My old dog did that too- except she ate it... gross creature!

  8. 1. Am ignoring the sheets in the dryer that need to be folded and put away. And having laundry in a room just off of my bedroom does not motivate me any more or less to do it than if it was in the basement. As a matter of fact, sometimes I wish I could have the square footage absorbed by those machines to be used for other purposes. Like an actual closet would be great.
    2. Am contemplating the flu shot myself. Not sure yet, because of the whole the-flu-shot-killed-my-grandma thing but the flu sucks ass and I really don't want to get it ever again. So. What to do, what to do, what to do...
    3. Honeycrisp apples are the shiznit. A friend bought two Honeycrisp trees to plant on our property, but one disappeared (weirdest thing ever) and the other just didn't thrive at all.
    4. Am coming over for dinner, please. Alternately, you are coming here and we are cooking together, because that food sounds delish. I wish I could interest H in baked sweet potatoes. I love them, and he does not particularly care for them.
    5. Oh, dogs. I hear they like cat shit so much because cats don't process fat efficiently, and so their poop is like little sticks of butter, which doggies really like. Bad CHARLEH. Don't play with the kitty-butt-butter, no matter how mad you are. Use your WORDS...
    6. Um, yeah. You have just doomed your student to get knocked up. Don't you know by now how the Infertility Gods work? Don't poke the bear, for heaven's sake!
    7. Bargain babies... yeah. Thanks for the heads up, kiddo. Geez. Tired or not, how do you even begin to respond to that?
    8. Oh, I miss my garage-sale boots! I got an awesome pair of Dan Post goat-ropin' boots (square toes), but they managed to disappear in one of the countless moves I've made since they were purchased 17 years ago.
    9. That is why I cannot be trusted to own a laptop. I have issues with coordination, and so fragile-expensive-machinery + Kate = many tears.
    10. I was a crunchy peanut butter fan, much to my mother's dismay (she's a smooth pb person, and didn't care to buy 2 separate jars of peanut butter, and so suffered through chunks in hers because I was a vegetarian and got lots of my protein through pb, so I got to choose), until I was in my 20s when I suddenly began to get really upset about hard chunks in my peanut butter, and switched to smooth. I don't know what happened, but it became a texture issue, something about nuts getting stuck in my teeth. I don't know.

  9. Crunchy peanut butter is pretty awesome. On the .005 days a year I eat peanut butter (o! the humanity!!).

    Also, it smells like pee in here. I'm not really sure WHY, but it does.


  10. For how much I want to be like you, I only love creamy peanut butter.

    Hooray for honey crisp apples, garage sale finds, and hearing your random thoughts. I have missed you.

  11. I am still stunned by #7.

    But I, too, love crunchy peanut butter. Especially on honeycrisp apples (will have to try the yogurt thing, though.)

  12. I love your random thoughts! They make me laugh! Especially #5!

    About that "adoption speech" you got... I seriously want to pop that woman in the nose for you! Gah!

    Anyway... I have a little "award" to give you over at my blog, it's more of a survey-type-thing.. but I'm passing it on to you because I follow your blog! ;)

  13. Apple crisps in honey yogurt huh?
    Got a little surprise waiting for you at my blog :-)

  14. Left you a little something on my blog...
