Random Thoughts - Monday Edition

>> Monday, April 5, 2010

First - thanks to everyone who entered the cookware and yogurt giveaways!  Winners have been selected and will be announced shortly!  For those who love to read - stay tuned!  I've got some great book reviews and giveaways coming up this week!  Get ready to enter!

Something no wife wants to hear from her husband when he comes home from work...."Honey, I got to blow up a truck today!!"  It seems that My Marine was training with the Special Forces again last week and they let him play with some of their "toys" -- including the the grenade launcher.  I don't know what I should be more worried about -- the fact that he's blowing up trucks or the gleam in his eye when he told me about it.

I really hate inconsiderate people.  On Friday, I was running errands and wanted to park my car.  There was this jackass just parked in front of the store, blocking traffic my way....no blinkers, nothing.  Just sitting there.  There was a parking space right in front of him, but he just had to sit there.  So I pulled up on his bumper and blew my horn.  He waved me on.  I couldn't back up and couldn't go around him because there were cars coming the other way.  So I just sat there and layed on my horn.  Finally I was able to go around him and pulled into a space -- and watched as someone came out of the store carrying a Starbucks and got into this car.  It took so much restraint for me not to throw rocks at that car.

My Marine has an addiction -- and it's a bad one.  He's addicted to lip balm.  And it drives me up a wall.  He's using it constantly.  I've got lip balm tubes everywhere in my house and I can't tell you how many times lip balm has gone through my washer and/or dryer.  The kicker is that he slathers it on before going to bed and then wants to kiss me goodnight.  It's like kissing a candlestick. 

Pigeons are stupid birds, but they make me laugh.  I was driving down my street the other day and there was this pigeon crossing the street.  Just moseying along.  As I got closer, the pigeon sped up too.  Have you ever seen a pigeon run?  It made me laugh.  But then I wondered, why didn't he just get up and fly away instead of running across the street.  Again -- stupid birds.

Have a great week everyone!

I so agree with you on inconsiderate people. One of my biggest annoyances!

Have a great week, too!

I hear you on the lip balm thing - many have been lost to the dryer in our house.

P.S. My verification word is flogging - maybe that's what you should of done to that idiot in the car.

Oh my goodness, how rude of that guy to park right in the middle of the way like that! What is wrong with people???

I confess to an addiction to lip balm too - I can't live without it as I am now so used to it my lips feel so dry without it. I have them scattered all over the house too, but have never left one in my pocket - so far!

Oh my, you had me laughing out loud to myself at the computer (my hubby looking at me like I'm nuts) about the pigeon thing...we have chickens and they look really stupid when they run also...they always make me laugh!

The Husband went on a business trip once and was told they were going to get to blow stuff up. He was SO disappointed when it didn't work out! :-D
