Randomness on a Wednesday Morning

There is randomness swirling around in my head this morning. Of course that is usually the case, but there seems to be more than normal today so I decided to share. :)


-I am not one to eat fast food very often- it's just not my thing. But the other day while coming home from out of town I realized I hadn't eaten all day and so I stopped and got a Happy Meal at that fast food restaurant that starts with a Mc and ends with a Donald's. Have you seen the Happy Meal drink lately? Seriously. It's like a Dixie cup with a lid. It must have all of about 4 ounces of Diet Coke in it. I wouldn't call it a Happy Meal....I'd call it a I'm-Still-Gonna-Be-Thirsty-When-I-Finish-This-Meal.

-Yesterday morning I arrived at work and threw away the EVIL candy pumpkins that were hiding in my desk. I was resolved that I was done with those yummy things for good. Of course my resolve later in the day- when I was exhausted and worn out- fizzled. And I'm embarrassed(mortified) to say that I dug through that trash can (which had nothing but the pumpkins and one piece of paper in it) and pulled out those stinkin' pumpkins and ate 5 of them. How pitiful is that? Seriously seriously sad. (Lesson for next time: throw EVIL candy in a trash can NOT in my office).

-Wouldn't it be cool if people can with instruction books? When you met them for the first time they would shake your hand and hand you a book with all the details about them- their likes, dislikes, quirks, habits, preferences, etc. Wouldn't that be fabulous?

-Why is it that if I wake up super early I'm wide awake and yet it never fails that about 10 minutes before I actually have to get up, I fall back asleep into a DEEP sleep? What is up with that?

-Why is it that when we do something unexpectedly kind for someone and they are so very appreciative, it doesn't seem to spur us to do more kind things? Why do we always have to make a conscious, concerted effort to do kind things?

-If you need a good laugh today- check out this website: People of Walmart. It's a site full of real pictures that people have taken in that W store of the oddly dressed people one often sees there. Some of them are absolutely hysterical!! (A word of warning- the language on the site is occasionally questionable)


Okay your turn.

Share something random with me so I don't feel alone in my random thoughts. K?

  1. Randomness in my head:
    - Are mama spiders smart enough to notice when their newly built egg sac has been removed and are they capable of revenge?

    - How can there be a housefull of relatively smart people and yet no one manage to replace the toilet paper?

  2. Why is it that some husbands (one in particular) ask for their wife's input about how to address a situation with someone, but when the wife offers a suggestion, they accuse their wife of being critical of how they communicate? And the conversation has changed from "how should I bring up this issue gently?" to "why do you always have to tell me how to talk to people?"...

  3. Why is it that our Sonic employees here can't seem to be consistent with getting the cherry in my Diet cherry Coke? I look forward to the cherry, dangnabbit! ;-)

    (ok, so I really don't have any issues right now..you love me anyway!)

  4. *why do I tell my kids they can't eat raw dough, then sneak some after they leave the room?

    *I am with you on the falling deep asleep right before it is time to wake up....

    *Why does my third born have crAzy cRazy craZy curly hair when mine can't hold curl for anything? Seriously - her hair is ringlets sticking out all over the place!
