Random Thoughts Tuesday! No real title

Tuesday's child is full of...grace? fair of face? crap? Ah, who knows. I'm just glad Tuesday is here. Why? Have you never read my blog before? It's randomness all around!


*I was actually born on a Tuesday. Maybe that's why I like RTT so much.

*We're 3 weeks into home school and I'm already looking forward to our first break. It's not that it's hard or boring, I just miss loafing around on the sofa watching TV all day. :)

*Indy has a milk allergy (to the protein, not lactose), but loves yogurt. In fact I'd go so far as to say he's obsessed with it. He's okay with soy yogurt, but full fat milk yogurt is his favorite. He wants to eat it every day. Unfortunately, it does not agree with his digestive tract and is bad news for anyone within a 20 ft radius of him.

*Pepper had to go to the vet yesterday because she has a really bad cough. Turns out her trachea is partially collapsed. They think it's because she has a bacterial infection. If not, they think she may have asthma. My poor sweetie. She seems okay though, and despite her age (13) and being *slightly* overweight, she's in excellent health otherwise.

*Is it wrong that sometimes I watch SpongeBob even if Indy isn't around?

*The banana tree is not a true fruit at all but a giant herb and the banana is actually its berry.

*Sometimes I hate cooking.

*I heart Stephen Colbert. John Stewart, not so much, but Colbert, bring it!

*After my training session today I wanted Oreos so badly, I nearly wept. I did NOT get any, because it would have negated all that hard work I'd done, but still, I wanted them.

*Because of Force Protection all the roads in and out of our housing area are blocked off except for one road in and one out. Where we come in there is a dead end road (we turn to the left to get in to the housing complex) with a bike path the comes around the corner. Bikes come whipping around the corner very quickly and without looking to see if there is a car. M is always saying that there is going to be an accident. Yesterday when I was coming home from an errand, the way in was pretty much blocked by Polezei cars, MP cars and an ambulance. Up at the front I saw a car and bike. Not good. When I finally made it to the entrance I asked the guard what happened. He said a bike came around the corner and HIT the car. Yes, you read that correctly, the bike hit the car. Fortunately the bike rider was okay, but still. Maybe they'll put up a sign warning the bikes.

*The show ROME is awesome. I'm sad it only lasted 2 seasons, but they were an awesome 2 seasons. The show is naughty!

*I was so exhausted today (stupid anemia), I came home from the gym, showered and fell asleep on the sofa for about 2 hours. Oh, the horror! The dogs loved it though. They get excited anytime one of us lays down. Sleeping is their favorite thing to do.

Okay, I think I'm done for the day. Oh, no! I'm not! I forgot about the funny sign. Here you go:


Yankee Girl said...

Oh boy! That sign is rad! So funny.

And I had no idea about the bananas.

I love Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert equally. I watch them every night.

A Mom on Spin said...

I love Sponge Bob. . . and naps!

Toni said...

That's a bit like a sign I saw the other day 'Warning! Sign not in use'. Um, can I hear the word contradiction?

And I can relate to Spongebob although it used to be Barney when I helped look after my cousin. At 15 I would walk to school humming that damn purple dinosaurs tunes!

Emily said...

I loved Rome because it was naughty!

Bonita said...

Oh my goodness, that sign!

A banana is a berry?? Who decides these crazy things? I will never be able to accept banana berries.

I watch Spongebob too, only I don't even have small kids. I used to have a Spongebob pillow on my bed. I finally parted with it when I turned 45.

I wish I was as motivated to workout as you are or at least had someone kicking my butt and motivating me. I can't even bring myself to walk up and down the road these days. Of course, having a major case of insomnia doesn't exactly make you want to go like gangbusters, but still...

Lauren said...

More naughty shows for you: The Tudors, Trueblood and for the PG-13 crowd, Gossip Girl. I love naughty TV!

And that sign is just wrong!! Someone had to have done that on purpose!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Holy cow, that sign is too funny!!!

I remember seeing previews for Rome, but forgot to watch it. Was it on HBO?? We just got free HBO for 90 days, and it figures there's nothing good on now.

I live right by that gate, I walk down the bike path to get to the German grocery store and I'm always terrified of an accident. Bikes come around there so fast and so do the cars! I didn't see the accident but one of my friends did after we'd just been talking about how dangerous it is around there.

That sign is priceless, LOVE it.

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I live for your random thoughts tuesdays.

Sarah said...

I must have gotten to the gate right after that happened. There was only one Polizei car there at the time. The biker looks sheepish and was rolling his ankle for the police officer.

*sigh* I wish all bikers realized that just because they're on a bike doesn't mean that gives them permission to disobey traffic laws

My associated random thoughts.. .

Love that sign!

My sister home schools her 4 kids. Using a combo of curriculm - are you using any of Answers In Genesis material?

Love naps too.

Where does the day go when your blogging?

That happened to me a good while ago. The bike hit my car at entrance gate. She ran into my car and I couldn't do anything about it.
