Anyway, there are things floating through my brain, and I've decided that I *must* share them with you, my
*A person where I work had a baby boy. They named him "Lennon," or so I thought. But it turns out, they named him "Lenin," because they like the unusual spelling, and "didn't really know who it was." OK, but this is only acceptable if you have another child and name him Stalin.
*Why do so many people obsess over the British Royal Family? I find them rather appalling, to be honest, and also feel that they strongly resemble horses. (Sorry if I have offended any horses.) I guess I fail to see their purpose.
*Why do some people say, "Do you really need those crutches?" WHO walks around with crutches if they do not have to??? Please supply names and addresses, so I can visit those people in person and smack them upside the head.
*Is/has anyone else watched "A Series of Unfortunate Events" with Neil Patrick Harris as Count Olaf? We are finding it highly amusing.
*The other day, I happened to mention that one of the local oddball channels here was showing "The Honeymooners" and how it is one of my favorite shows ever. I was told that it encourages violence against women. Ugh (both to violence against women and to that opinion).
*Someone asked me the other day how Jack the kitten was doing, and why I don't post more pictures of him. A) He is doing just fine, and having a grand old time. The other day, The Tim said he thought Jack had a self-esteem problem. I said, "Are you serious?" and he responded, "Yes. He has TOO MUCH self-esteem." HA! B) It is nearly impossible go get a photo of him, as he is moving 99% of the time, and the photos turn out incredibly blurry. Trust me, I'm trying though!
*Speaking of The Tim, why does he decide to undertake major projects all of a sudden, and then I'm suddenly supposed to drop everything and do what he needs me to do to finish it? He does this every once in a while, and it makes me nuts. And he can never understand why I think it's a problem. Grrrr.
*Our dryer stopped working last week. The Tim called to have it checked out and repaired, and fortunately it was just that the innards needed to be cleaned, because so much linty stuff was built up. We are very conscientious about cleaning the lint trap, but I also wonder why they don't make it possible for you to get to that area of the dryer yourself, instead of having to have a repair person come, and then pay for an expensive service call.
*Speaking of repair stuff, here in the Philadelphia area, we are bombarded with commercials about Horizon Plumbing Services. It's all about how service-oriented they are, how clean-cut and considerate their employees are (my read: nice white men) etc., etc. A few months ago, when we were getting a new dishwasher, and needed some plumbing work done, we called them, and the person on the phone informed us that they don't service Philadelphia itself (my read: scary city with scary people). Their commercials have always driven me nuts anyway, but now every time I see one, I wish that kid on the commercials would have to move into the city and survive.
I should probably close now, before I dig a deeper hole for myself ...
