Things I Think About (Part 2)

I've blogged before about random things I think about, but that was almost 2 months ago. You can that post here. I've had many more random thoughts since then, so I thought I'd make this a recurring theme. You'll soon find out (if you already haven't) that I am pretty random. I think about some crazy stuff sometimes.

Ok. Part 2. Here goes.

1. Have you noticed that Benjamin Linus (LOST) never blinks? Never. That's just weird.
2. I have an uncanny ability to remember phone numbers and addresses. I can also remember the name of any child I've come in contact with. I can't, however, remember an adult's name. Ever. It's so frustrating.
3. I don't understand people who don't wear seatbelts.
4. I am not a friend with the hot weather we're having right now. I love winter and being able to cover up in warm clothes. Hot weather brings out small clothes. I don't have the body for small clothes.
5. My friend, Erin, is going to the Siesta Fiesta in San Antonio with me. I am so excited I have been doing happy dances for weeks now.
6. There's nothing better than an ice cold glass of milk.
7. I really, really can't wait to see the new Indiana Jones movie. Holler.
8. I think I would be a really good actress if I ever had the guts to try it.
9. One day, my goal is to run a marathon. Guess I'd better start running, huh?
10. I have 51 episodes of Reba (the TV show) recorded on my TiVo. I doubt I'll ever get the time to watch all of them. I never get sick of them, so I doubt I'll delete them in case I get about 3 days solid to watch TV.
11, I'm so much of an optimist it can possibly be labeled a fault.
12. I love Law and Order SVU. I wonder how a person gets cast as a dead person. I mean, I totally could lie still and be dead. I'd love to be on that show.
13. I wonder what it's like to wash windows on a skyscraper.
14. I love interesting houses. I'm tempted every time I see a cool house to knock on the door and ask if I can look around. Dangerous, I know - which is why I haven't done it.
15. I drive around and intentionally get lost just so I can find my way back. I like finding new ways to get places in my city. It's not odd to hear me say, "Ooo, I wonder where that street goes - I'll have to drive down it and figure it out."
16. I ate shrimp one time and got food poisoning because of it. Since then, I have a really hard time eating shrimp. Why can't I have the same experience with chocolate? It would totally solve my weight issues.
17. I'm bribing my 2 1/2 year old daughter with M&Ms to use the potty. Is that bad?
18. My daughter's All-Star softball team is asking each family to raise "x" amount of money for the team. I am quite possible the worst person at asking people for money in the whole world. I would sooo rather just write a check than ask people for money.
19. I never win at any sort of random contest. Ever.
20. I'm so sleepy right now that I'm falling asleep while I'm typing. But I'm too stubborn to stop and go to bed. I'll regret that at 6:30 in the morning.
21. People who misspell contractions make me crazy. It's "y'all." Not "ya'll." "You're" means "you are." It does not mean that something belongs to you. Don't even get me started on "their," "there," & "they're."
22. Last one, I promise. My husband gave me a 55 minute massage for Mother's Day. A friend gave me a gift certificate for a manicure/pedicure. I'm looking so forward to a day of pampering that I can hardly contain my enthusiasm.

Ok. My random brain has now shut down. Nite nite, y'all.

The contraction thing gets on my nerves, too.

Thanks for spelling y'all. That's one I always thought was ya'll. I think. Now that I'm looking at it, they both look weird.

Hi Fellow Girlmom~

I am girlmomx3. Mine are 18, 8, and 7. I found you on LPM blog. I have a Master's in English, so all of my friends are afraid to send me any sort of written word. I'm such an intimidating personality I guess! LIttle things like that drive me crazy! BTW-I fully expect to misspell something in this comment!)

Blessings today,
Jane
