Random Thoughts Tuesday! Again!

randomtuesday

Tuesday! Tuesday! Tuesday! My brain is full and needs to be purged.

*I'm flying to the States in 6 days. I haven't even thought about packing. I don't care.

*When we went to France the other day, I was doing 120/mph (you read that right) and got PASSED. Many times. Crazy German driver, how I love you!

*My house is a mess. I don't care.

*I'm trying (really hard) to take an interest in the whole Supreme Court nominations thing, but I just can't. Say it with me: I don't care!

*My dogs are freaking insane. Arf, the little one who's name should really be Napoleon, because he's small, but has BIG plans, is barking at the TV. Animals on TV drive him crazy. If he sees an animal (especially a horse) on TV, he goes into some sort of anger trance, charges the TV (not that he can reach it, he's about 8 inches tall), barking and growling, chases his tail a few times, then looks back up at the TV to see if the animals are still there, then starts the whole thing over again. This goes on as long as there's an animal on TV. This actually affects our viewing choices. We never watch anything staring an animal unless we put him in his crate first and if we're flipping through the channels and come across an animal on the screen, we turn it as quickly as possible. Stupid dog. Good thing he's cute.

*Obama needs some Botox between his eyes. That little 'V' thing is really deep. He should get that taken care of. I'm just sayin.

*Oh, speaking of V, does anyone remember that show? OMG, it scared the beejeebers out of me. The baby with the forked tongue scarred me for life. What were my parents thinking letting me watch that? I was 11. Sheesh.

*I can't find the pedal to my sewing machine. Why wouldn't the packers pack them together?

*I wish I had an ugly brick fireplace so I could paint it. It looks so cool on TV, I'm just itching to try it. Isn't that an odd thing to think about?

*I want a pink hammer.

*I'm so sick of make over shows talking about how green something is every 5 minutes. Good grief! Put a disclaimer at the front of the show: ALL PRODUCTS USED ON TODAY'S SHOW ARE GREEN. EVEN THE ELECTRICITY USED DURING FILIMINGWAS MADE BY MAKING THE PRODUCTION ASSISTANTS RUN ON A GIANT TREADMILL BECAUSE WE CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT AND ARE BETTER THAN YOU, YOU TV WATCHING SLACKER WHO DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO DECORATE.

*I finally saw Slumdog Millionaire last night. It was fantastic! If you haven't seen it, it's not just hype. It's a really well acted, well filmed movie that has a great story. Oh, and you must watch the end credits. "Who want to be a mill-on-air?"

*I now have a totally inappropriate crush on Dev Patel. He was born while I was a junior in HS. OMG, I'm almost a Mrs. Robinson.

* I love the word cupola.

Now, rush over to The Un Mom and read all the other randomness.

hah...yeah that made me laugh when we were watching it the other day: "Who wants to be a Millin Air?!?"

You should find the clip of Dev Patel and Freida Pinto on Ellen...try Youtube. It's cute :)

Heather said...

Supreme Court Nominations...didn't even know it was happening, like you, I don't care.
lol at your crazy dog, quite the mental image from that story.

Kat said...

I was worried about watching Slumdog cause I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the hype. I was wrong. I agree it was fantabulous.

GreenJello said...

I loved Slumdog Millionaire, too.

And I love the mental image of the assistants running on a treadmill... or in a giant hamster wheel.

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Love it! :)

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Good luck on getting all packed up!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

My house is a mess and I am blogging. :)

Have a great trip!

BeautifulWreck said...

Funny about the fireplace. Have yet to see Slumdog Millionaire but its on my netflix queue.

Anne said...

OH OH!!!! 120Miles/Hours??? 192 Kilometer/hours?? Are you trying to kill yourself? I believe that the highest I did was 160km/h and it was going down hill with the wind pushing me!! LOL!!! I know that german are insane... but this is part of being German!!
But sorry you will be when driving in the states at 75m/h and with a cop on you saying that you are going to fast!! LOL!!! Oh how I wish I could be in your car when you get on the Interstate!! LOL... I hate driving in the States because of the speed limits!!! HATE IT!

Jenn said...

I was cracking up about the GREEN thing. I am so over it, I roll my eyes so much I get dizzy!

Keely said...

I don't think my car would even GO 120mph.

I haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire yet, either. It's on the list!

AnNicole @ OurSuburbanCottage said...

Hey there! I saw your comment. I'm in Cologne. I go back home saturday. Isn't it beautiful here? :-) see ya

Susie Q said...

OMG I am so tired of 'green'. THANK YOU! I am sick of it...tired of the self-righteousness, holier-than-thou (not the same thing) and it is flat driving me crazy! I am to the point where I walk into a store that says 'Did you bring your bag?" No, I thought I'd put everything in separate plastic bags when I leave. I'm buying 120W bulbs for every lamp (even the night light) and leaving them ALL on ALL day long! I am THROWING away that Coke can too! Mwaahahahahahaa!

I wish Obama would botox his mouth if it would just shut up.

nikkicrumpet said...

Some of those I agreed with totally...like the pink hammer, the ego green makeover shows, and not caring about the house being dirty. But the fireplace one made me laugh. That's like saying I wish I were fat so I could exercise it off! Loved this post!

mammaX3 said...

I loved "V!"
Haven't seen it in years! Must go rent the DVD! Now!

Comedy Goddess said...

You can sew? I'm impressed!

Mom in High Heels said...

LOL! Comedy Goddess, yes, I CAN sew. My undergraduate degree is in English and Theatrical Costume Design.

Mr London Street said...

Slumdog Millionaire is brilliant. Though, and this might just be me, I prefer a bit of proper Bollywood.

Nice blog by the way!

Oh, sorry, forgot the mantra: I don't care. That's better.

Jenna said...

Oh! I'm so glad you've found my Blog. I have to say I totally just spent the last half hour reading a bunch of your entries-- you are SO funny/clever/awesome!

I feel like I should go force my flat feet into some high heels now, but as I'm headed to the optomitrist this afternoon, that plan could end very, very badly once my eyes are dialated...
