Random Thoughts

---It’s that time yet again.
---If I burn down the world, there won’t be any more spiders. If there’s a downside, I don’t see it.
---“Interrobang” is my current favorite word.
---For the record, it means ?! or !?. Unfortunately, it’s not considered standard for novels, because apparently no one is allowed to do anything fun ever.
---Screw you, Microsoft Word! If “interrobang” isn’t in the dictionary, it’s your problem!
---“NBC has defended its decision to interview a reality TV star instead of observing a moment of silence marking the 11th anniversary of 9/11.” And that defense is: “We cater to our audience. Since no one actually watches our network, that means more Kardashians.”
---Yes, I make fun of NBC a lot. Well, I’ll stop when they stop making it so easy.
---I hate words like disaster that, when you add the suffix –rous, turn into “disastrous”. There should be an e there, dangit.
---Cashews grow on apples. Just so you know.
---Last night I had a horrible dream: the presidential election was postponed for two weeks. Woke up screaming.
---For the record, a flashing yellow light means slow down, proceed with caution, not come to a complete stop for ten seconds to annoy the driver behind you.
---This is why I avoid driving as much as possible.
---“Windows Explorer 8…Not as bad as you’d think!” Somehow I’d be more impressed if the statement didn’t have the little “advertisement” border around it. Also goes to show you how little they think of their own product.
---“Immurement” is entombing someone alive within a structure. For future reference.
---I’m not planning anything.
---In writing, men tend to use pronouns slightly more than women. Also, women use more adjectives. I know that’s true for me.
---I was with my mom while she was watching “Dancing With the ‘Stars’” and I have to say, it’s a lot more tolerable if you pretend it’s the Hunger Games.

And to complete this issue of Random Thoughts, here’s another conversation between me and my mother, taking place after I helped her move a bunch of china around:

Me: Do you need anything else?

Her: Nope.

Me: Am I going to get in the other room and sit down and you’ll call me for something else?

Her: That’s very likely.


  1. That's because women have a larger color vocabulary.

  2. Love that conversation between you and your mother. Too funny and too true.

    Also, the thought about DWTS and the Hunger Games is perfect. I'm going to try that the next time I watch that show.

  3. I found the perfect spider picture for you. I thought I saved it, but I can't find it now.

    I believe I've had that conversation with my mother as well.

  4. Ah, one day it'll come to the point where they are killing each other for reality television.

    The upside is, it'll only be reality show participants lowering themselves....
