Alright, who has it bad? Bad as in if we really do have 6 more weeks of winter it may mean the death of something or someone?
So-let's do something about our Cabin Fever together, shall we? Let's all play along....
It's called the Random Game- just whatever pops into your head- blurt it out....(for you playing along at home, that means please leave a comment.)
Is it just me or is Facebook making you crazy? It seems to me that most of the time it should be called "FAKE-BOOK." Mostly because it seems that everyone is being overly sweet and nice with their posts about how their lives are all sunshine, rainbow and lollipops. As a matter of fact, there is a new psychological phenomenon now called the Facebook Effect. Folks are being pushed into dark depressions thinking that everyone else's lives are so freaking fantastic and theirs actually sucks.
I say for every "My child is a prodigy post" you have to post two "I woke up this morning to the sound of the dog puking next to my bed posts." That should balance things out quite nicely.
And on the same subject- people, Facebook is not the place to post that your wife left you for the guy she met while having internet affairs...(true post on Beloved's wall- can you say AWKWARD?) Seriously, I'm all about sharing- but do all 349 of your Facebook friends need to know this? Need to know basis, is all I'm saying.
I miss my cute shoes. I'm tired of wearing boots and heavy clogs to trudge through the snow. I want to wear a a pair of cute, peep-toe wedges. It broke my heart today while in a shoe store looking at all the sandals and other spring shoes. It's cruel, that's all I'm saying.
I love my new Droid (most of the time) however, sometimes it does crazy things like- switches the contact I'm calling, emailing or texting- unbeknown to me until after the fact. Listen to today's mess up.
I'm texting back and forth with a friend just, fun watcha doin' stuff. We get on the subject of Paczki's (for those who don't know, a paczki is a fruit or cream filled donut type pastry made with lots of lard and sugar.) In a word- delicious and only available right before the Season of Lent and a huge part of Fat Tuesday celebrating among these parts. My friend has been craving them and I texted her that I just saw our local bakery had the sign up that the Paczki's are in....We celebrate and then begin to discuss our favorite flavors.
Here's the text I sent back-
I LIKE PRUNE. WEIRD I KNOW.
Only it didn't go to my friend- for some reason that damn touch screen pulled a fast one- and I ended up texting a person that I know through business. I've known her for several years, but we are more professional acquaintances not-personal. So, once I discovered my error, I was totally embarrassed. Instead of just ignoring it and letting it go....oh know....I couldn't do that...I began a diatribe to explain my mistake, and please don't think it's weird and this is why I"m discussing prunes and not because I need to be more regular...and so on and so on.
Literally, somebody stop me. I'm texting and I can't stop....I made it 100x more embarrassing. Oh well, it's my new saying now- I'm just going to own it....I LIKE PRUNE. WEIRD I KNOW...
Will you be celebrating Valentine's Day this weekend? OR are you a traditionalist and will wait until the actual date? I have no plans nor do I think Beloved's cooked up anything. He was vacuuming the whole house when I came home from work today- that's just about the best Valentine's Day present I could ask for....
