Random Thoughts Tuesday!

RTT! RTT! RTT! I love it!

*Germans love to protest. I don’t know why, perhaps because they were oppressed for so long that they take great pride in the fact that they can actually protest? Whatever. They’re really good at it. Very organized, and usually very peaceful. After I dropped Indy off at his German lessons today I got trapped in protest traffic. The Polezei had stopped all the traffic to let the protesters pass. They were students protesting….something. I couldn’t read exactly what they were protesting (note to self: learn more German), but they were students (probably from the University) and there were hundreds of them. It was pretty impressive. I was still mad about getting stuck in the traffic though.

*I miss commercials! Can you believe it? Me neither, but there you have it. AFN does not air commercials, so they fill the time with stupid little military commercials. LAME.

*AFN used to be called Armed Forces Network, but after 50 years, they decided Armed was too aggressive, so it was changed to American Forces Network. This happened right around the time we invaded Iraq. Anyone like a big slice of irony?

*Give me a break, give me a break, break me off a piece of that KitKat bar.

*I wish That 70’s Show hadn’t gone off the air. I love that show.

*My little piggies need a pedicure.

*Sometimes I miss being a stupid teenager without a care in the world. Life was so simple then. And I never had acne, so that’s a bonus.

*My ringtone on M’s phone is “Brickhouse”

*Sometimes I get really irritated at the recommendations from Amazon. Just because I looked at Stargate Atlantis once (for M), does not mean I want to know about every Sci-Fi show ever made. Seriously.

*I’m really apathetic about the American Idol Finale. I’m sure Adam is going to win, and while I like him, he’s just too Broadway for me.

*Where's my flying car? Aren't we supposed to have flying cars and robots by now?

*My computer is hot on my lap. Maybe it’s a sign I should end this? Yeah, probably. So, go read the other randomness!

Ahh yes. Germans. :)

I have the exact same problem on Amazon. It's worse when you BUY those sci-fi things for people. I found a place where you can unselect them from being related to the type of suggestions you want... but that's kind of a pain because every year, I think I buy more Star Trek.

Brickhouse will now be playing thru my mind all day! And that's not necessarily a bad thing....

Great RTT!

I just ignore the Amazon suggestions now. Since I started selling stuff on Amazon, it suggests the very things I sell! haha.

Sometimes the commercials are just as entertaining as the shows! Especially "as seen on TV" LOL.

I like commercials too. Sometimes they're better than the show I'm watching. I want a flying car too.

I bought one of those new fancy silver Macs. Now my laptop is actually cold. Really odd to feel the reverse. My pigs could also use a pedicure :)

Happy Random Tuesday (on Wednesday) Hey at least I'm original right? ;)

Oppressed Germans do NOT even get me started on that one!

I'm 45 and I still get zits. It's so unfair that you didn't even have acne as a teen!

Love reading your thoughts, always so...random and funny.
