Random Thoughts About Random Things

Ever crave a spoonful of peanut butter?  I do, all the time.  It has to be a tablespoon, too.  Just one.  Not two.  That would be too much.

Why is it that all of my yard is free of snow, except one teeny tiny spot that has resisted melting through weeks of 45+ temps?  Should I collect some of this snow and send it in for testing?  Is it a new melt resistant snow I don't know about?

Why do people get angry and annoyed at you when they want a book, but can't remember the title, author, or subject---and you have no idea what they're looking for? Really?  If you can't take the time to write it down or remember it, how do I know what you want?  Mind reading does not come with the job.

Why do ghost hunters scream all the dang time, so those of us watching at home can't hear what the heck they heard?  And why, God why, do they have to run and jerk the camera.  Give it to me.  I would be a kick ass ghost hunter.  Steady as a rock.  And I promise you, no screaming.  Maybe a bit of  potty mouth, but no screaming.  

Why is the gym a mere 5 miles away, and not in my basement?  

How come I will crave Mexican food at least once every few weeks, and become so  (quite frankly) maddening until I shove some down my pie hole?  What is in it that keeps that obsession going?  Are refried beans really that addictive?
Oh my God that rice looks good!

Just how many people can you follow on Twitter?  How can you read all those tweets?  

I--just today--realized that thanks to Suzanne Collins and the Hunger Games Trilogy, the vampire craze in teen world has been replaced by the dystopian/plague riddled world/teens in charge/ craze.  Thank you, Suzanne Collins.  

This craze, however, has not effected the Romance and Sci-Fi genres, which are still on the paranormal/vampire/demon/angel/werewolf/dead-raiser kick.  

One small victory at a time, people.  

Why is it knowing a particular food will calculate into actually running/biking for miles to burn it off not stop me from eating that food?  And stop me from said running/biking?  

I think it's called lack of motivation and laziness.  And an addiction to carbs.

How come small children always recognize the golden arches from their earliest moments of consciousness?  Why not, say, a cow, or a tomato?  No, McDonald's.  The finger pointing and jumping up and down soon follows.  And continues until middle age.  Sigh.  
Come to Me.....


  1. I always have random patches of snow left too. I hung out clothes today and I still had snow hanging around.

  2. LOL--I knew my golden arches at a young age too. Maybe the Happy Meals had something to do with it. lol

    It's funny, but I never mind a vampire story, so long as it's different. Zombies I could to without. Seriously.

    Sometimes I will get a food craving and even smell the food in the air, I swear it. lol

  3. LOL - your post made me giggle though you are on your own with your craving for Mexican

  4. Frisky & Shelleyrae:

    I am still on the fence about zombie novels. Nothing slightly romantic about someone wanting to devour you!

    Shelleyrae: You don't like Mexican?! Besides chocolate and burgers, it's what I crave the most :)

  5. I loved this post but I confess I dont crave peanut butter ever.
    Chinese food is my weakness but I do love mexican too

  6. Carbs, carbs, and more carbs.

    For a while (several years ago) I was a crazed women who could NOT get enough of Famous Dave's buffalo chicken wings. I craved them, thought about them constantly and would actually slink over to FD at lunch to eat them by myself and no one would be the wiser.

    It was the same with the Japanese Pan Noodles from Noodles and Co. I'd drive 10 miles roundtrip for those tasty carb-laden goodies. And I do love my refried black beans and lime..... so yummy!


Did you know comments taste like chocolate mousse? I looooove chocolate mousse--leave a comment and feed me.
