For the Record

1.  Yes they are predicting another snowstorm.  And yes, we've had much more snow than usual.  But a) it's winter, and b) there is nothing we can do about it, so let's all just move on and deal with things OK?  I complain when it's hot and humid, but mostly to myself, because a) it's summer, and b) I know there is nothing I can do about it.  So far I've lived, and so will you.

2.  Dear Octo-Mom: Please go away. 

3.  Oddly enough, I still don't care if I never see an episode of "American Idol."

4.  I think that most people do what they have to do most of the time.  And that is courage, even if no one else never knows or understands.

5.  Dear Co-Worker:  I'm glad you are watching your salt intake.  However, I can watch my own, thank you very much.

6.  I've said this to others, but every time I watch the Olympics, I think it would be so much more enjoyable if there was a Tim Horton's near my house.  As would life in general ...

7.  I will truly miss Brian Westbrook.  I thought he was a nice person, besides just a really talented football player.

8.  Dear Zach:  I'm sorry your birthday present will be about a whole month late.  It has nothing to do with how much we love you, it has to do with the fact that finding stuffing material for your gift is way more challenging than it should be.  Hopefully once you finally get it, you won't care that it took so long.

9.  My birthday is coming up.  Unlike most adults, I actually look forward to, and enjoy mine.  Still being around to have birthdays seems like something you'd want to happen.

10.  Are Girl Scout cookies good because they are expensive, or because they are only available for part of the year?  Or is the answer both of the above?

Feel free to go back to whatever it was you were doing.  It just feels good to get that off my chest ...

1) Anybody who thinks I complain a lot about winter should hear how much I'm complaining in my head. Tip of the iceberg, I tell you. As much as I love summer, I get tired of it, too, just as I'm tired of snow now.

2) Oh God yes.

3)Me neither.

5)One of my co-workers wants me to go to lunch with her sometimes and then tells me about her lifetime commitment to Weight Watchers the whole time.

6)Somehow I only heard of Tim Horton's recently.

10) I don't know, but now I really want a Samoa.

1. I've found that people will find a way to complain about the weather, no matter what.
2. Yes, please.
3. Me neither.

10. Both. I can't help myself around Thin Mints and Samoas. Soooo good.

10. It's only because I can't find me a girl scout and I need need NEED some damn thin mints.

10. For me, it's the limited availability. Keebler "thin mints" just don't cut it!

Marie said...

I agree with everything, especially 2 and 3. Glad you got them off your chest. Feels good, doesn't it?

Lorraine said...

Bridget- I can only speak of those subjects that I am familiar with- and I would like to say, that those Girl Guide sandwich cookies are much better frozen, and I like the vanilla better than the chocolate.

I'm loving the snow - probably because I can't shovel this round.

One to add to your record
11. I'm disappointed in Tiger Woods but I'm not the person he should apologize to.

Channon said...

Teeheehee... There really is nothing like frozen thin mints.

6. I would like some poutine from Tim Horton's. I don't know why.

7. I agree about Westbrook. I'm sorry to see him go.

9. I also look forward to my birthday, and have enjoyed it all month long! I don't understand when people dread it.

And it was fun to read!

So glad I'm not the only one who doesn't care about American Idol.

I go back and forth on the birthday thing.

I've never seen American Idol either.... and only recently (last month) upgraded to HD TV. Not sure why I bothered.

Girl Scout Cookies should be regulated - just like Twinkies.

PS Your Pickle sweater in *green* is Deli-icious!

For the record:

I hate the Kardashians. And I think Girl Scout cookies are awful. And the parents who practically assault you at the grocery store entrance really need to step back. Next year, I'm packing a sock full of quarters to keep them at bay.

And I do not understand the appeal of American Idol at all.

I'm a whiner about the snow but it's dark humor whining. Good Humor whining would involve a bell and chocolate ice cream.

Thin Mints!!!!!!!!! Wish we had some.
