Random Thoughts Tuesday, now with pictures!
*Germans call "ER" (you know, the TV show) "Emergency Room" I don't know why, but it always cracks me up to hear them say it on TV. "Jetzt (now) Emergency Room." Why not call it "ER?"
*They call "Murder, She Wrote" "Murder is her hobby"
*We get quality TV over here, as you can tell.
*I had my first session with my personal trainer yesterday. I can barely move my fingers to type this post. She's evil. In a cute, peppy, I-only-want-the-best-for-you way. I can't believe I pay her for this.
*In England, the Speaker of the House is not allowed to speak.
*We happen to live right next to the Commanding General of the US Army Europe. He lives in a big compound that we can see from Indy's bedroom window. Indy has been driving me crazy to invite the General to his b-day party. I KNOW! He says the General is our neighbor and we are very rude not to invite him to anything. When we went on the boat ride the other night, guess who was there? That's right, the General. Indy freaked out and said he had to meet the General. I took him up to meet him and the General and his wife could not have been nicer. Indy told them all about the party and that he wanted to invite them (even though I've already explained that the General probably won't be able to come). They were gracious and said we could bring an invite over to them one evening this week. Here is a photo of Indy with General Ham (he has his own Wikipedia page)
We went over last night to deliver said invite, but General and Mrs. Ham weren't home. Indy was bummed, but he asked the guard if they could deliver it for him. The guards said that would not be a problem and called me later to let me know that it had been delivered. M, being a lowly W1 (not really low in the grand scheme of things, but certainly not 'hanging out with the General' rank) has stayed far away from all of this. Silly man.
*Kids laugh approximately 600 times a day. Adults laugh on average only 15 times a day.
*M is death to anything electronic. Seriously. He has killed more laptops than any human who is not electrically charged should. His latest, which he's had for a year and a half died today. Now we have to get him a new one. Should I be concerned that the US Gov't entrusts him with multi-million dollar computer thingies (that's the technical term)? Maybe the gov't should be worried.
*Indy thinks M needs a blog nickname. He's suggested Grumpy (for obvious reasons) and Hound Dog (because he says M likes to sleep all the time like a lazy hound dog). M was not impressed when I told him.
*I was given two awards (TWO!) by the super duper awesome Jenny Mac over at Let's Have A Cocktail. Have you ever been there? If not, you should check it out. She's awesome and oh, so funny and real. And she thinks I'm fab, so she is obviously a woman of taste. :) I'll be giving said awards out either tomorrow or Thursday. You never know, you might get one. (See, this is how I get repeat readers).
*My oldest dog, Pepper, has an ear infection. It smells. Over share?
*One-third of all potatoes sold become French Fries.
*I read somewhere that polar bears are left handed. How do they know that? And technically, they don't even have hands, so how can that be?
*Cerulean Blue <----RANDOM!
*And finally, a funny picture to close out the randomness. You need to click the photo and read the advert on the side of the bus.
"If you don't have GIO Third Party Property Insurance, we suggest you don't hit this bus."
Thanks once again to the Un Mom for sponsoring all the randomness!
