Random Thoughts Tuesday. Living in the Dark Ages


Tuesday? Again? Didn't we just have one of those like 6 days ago? Sheesh! They just keep coming! On with the randomness!

*I was without internet yesterday! For whatever reason, Telepost Kabel Service (TKS) was having issues with lines or something yesterday and I had no phone or internet from about 10am yesterday until this morning. I swear to you it nearly killed me. I'm constantly running to the internet to look up whatever catches my fancy, mostly Edwards Cullen and Johnny Depp really important stuff and not being able to do so made me feel all edgy and anxious. I think I could have a problem. I was like a junkie jonesing for a hit. To distract myself, I rearranged the LR (imagine Mr. HH's surprise when he came home for lunch and I made him move our behemoth entertainment center about 2 feet), cleaned a bit (boring) and wrote out another 4000 words for NaNoWriMo. I was still thinking about it though. I NEEDED to find out who played the crazy rocker chick in "Just Friends" (Anna Faris in case you're wondering), and exactly how much someone my height should weigh (I'm way slightly off).

*Oh, guess what? Blogger did save my RTT that I thought Mozilla ate last week. The following is what I was thinking about last week:

*I'm totally procrastinating today on NaNoWriMo.

*Part of my procrastination involves browsing the NaNoWriMo forums where some people ask the most ridiculous questions. Honestly, if you plan to write a book about something, know at least a little bit about it. If you're planning to write a book about, say Knights and the Middle Ages, you should at least know how a knight was addressed. You should also know what a doctor was called. FYI, there were no doctors. Barbers were surgeons and dentists. Can you imagine?

*On Tuesdays, one of our AFN channels airs an hour of HGTV programming. Oh, how I miss you HGTV!!!!

*The Halloween candy is calling my name. Loudly.

*Do you think it will balance out if I eat the candy while I'm on the stair stepper?

*I could do the laundry as a way to procrastinate, but that's too much like work.

*Indy and Mr.HH have cub scouts tonight (Mr. HH is the den leader) and I so look forward to my hour alone. Maybe I'll write then. Or not.

*Do you own a lot of bras? I just counted (I'm watching Oprah) and I have 19. Does that seem like a lot?

*Wow, it's easy to write out an RTT when it's been done already. I'm awesome.

*Indy is on the phone with my mom. He will only talk on the phone if it's on speaker, which means I get to hear both sides of the conversation. I have to say it's sweet and crazy hilarious.
Indy: Hey Gigi, guess what?
Gigi: What?
Indy: My mom, she says you're not the boss of her anymore.
Gigi: That's right. She's a grown up, she doesn't need a boss.
Indy: Well, my dad does. And mom's his boss.
Gigi: (laughter) Oh, yeah?
Indy: Yeah, 'cause my dad, he just can't get his act together. Plus, he's lazy.
Me (from the other room): Watch what you say!
Indy: But you know it's true, Mom.
Me: Talk to Gigi.
Indy: It really is true, Gigi. I'm not lying. My dad, he's kind of lazy. My mom needs to light a fire under him sometimes.

Bwahahahahahahaha! Man, I love that kid.

*And finally, the funny sign of the week, which was sent to me by a friend:

Now, click the super weird button at the top (I still find it crazy disturbing) and go check out all the other RTT's.

I soooooo know what you mean about the internet addiction. I was so twitchy when I was away in Nashville and only checked my email once a day....

Uh yeah, 19 bras is a lot.

I have 4 "regular" ones and a couple of "special" ones (overshare?). My excuse is that it's really difficult to get my size, I have to get my mum to buy them in the UK for me. I do however have far too much ridiculously coloured underwear.

I also like having a good ol' giggle on the NaNoWriMo forums. I had to explain to my husband the other day about how the ice caps couldn't melt in his post apocalyptic novel because then he'd have to include all manner of horror movie creatures that are frozen up there (The Blob, The Thing, Frankenstein's monster et al).

We also discussed the pros and cons of Atlantis rising from the sea in his novel and whether it would be inside a big bubble of air, or whether the people would be dead or mermaids. I said the latter, the bubble just doesn't seem realistic ;)

It makes me feel like mine is boring. I just have to decide what drugs my characters are on and how to adequately describe the terror of being stalked by someone you know.

Hmm... I rambled on a bit. Procrastination.

Diane said...

hhmm... yeah, 19 is a lot of bras. i mean, ya only got 2 boobs! lol

srsly though, i think i have maybe 8. that's enough for me.

i'm trying my very best to stay out of the halloween candy, but no luck so far!

happy random tuesday!

Captain Dumbass said...

No internet?!?! How did you get by? And what did writers do before the internet? I don't know what I'd do without Wiki.

Laurie said...

I actually have friends that request I send them photos of hot guys...Seriously. I've already received two such emails today. I don't know what I would do without Google images..even for a day. I mean, how else can I show my lunch buddy exactly how hot John Mayer's sleeve of tattoos is? Or how hot Cam Gigandet is? Or the naked picture of Jude Law (disappointing)....

Totally feel your pain.

P.S. Wonder if anyone is going to now try to find that picture,lol...

Design it Chic said...

bras.. Oprah.. is Oprah counting her bras on TV??? ha! that would be fun:):):)
Oh and Indy.. he's such a cute kid.. he was only telling the truth, right?:) The kid had a point and he needed to convince Gigi he was right... i want a kid like that too.. only that he/she has to be on my side.. any other ways... there's no other way.. bwahaha!!!:)

Happy Tuesday!

*my randomness is up too:)

The Crazy Coxes said...

I love the convo with Gigi!

Happy Random!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I get stressed when my internet connection is out. It's amazing how much we've come to rely on it for everything. :)

I haven't counted my bras lately...but I might have to, just to see how many there are. I know I have a drawer full, though. ;)

Loved the convo with Gigi! :)

Happy RTT! :)

My internet went out for about 30 minutes one day and you would have thought that someone dropped an atomic bomb! I was in a panic!

Maybe if I had some of your halloween candy, everything would be ok!

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! I had to share about a funny sign I would always laugh at when we were stationed in Honolulu, HI. The sign on the convenience store said "Cheap Ass Cigarettes Mini-Mart"-no wondering what they're selling, huh?
