RTT: Going Rogue, Grapefruit , Cars and Blasphemy

That's right! I'm randoming without Keely. She's put RTT on hiatus (Why Keely? WHY?????), but I'm not going to let that stop me. I'm going rogue. I'm totally still using the button though. Bwahahahahahahaha! Too much?


*Why is that every time you eat a grapefruit (or peel and orange or squeeze a lemon) that the juice somehow manages to squirt directly into your eye?  I mean, you have a whole face there, so how does it manage to make it right into your eyes?  Very annoying.

*I was eating a grapefruit the other day (and had been squirted in the eye multiple times!) and Indy asked for a bite.  I warned him it was sour and he said that was okay.  I put a bite in his mouth and he made the craziest face and said "Why would you put that in my mouth????" That's what she said.

*I like my grapefruit with salt.  Yummy.

*Cars are NOT built with pregnant women in mind.  It soooo uncomfortable to drive or even just sit in the car.  Ugh.

*Back up cameras however are quite possibly one of the greatest inventions ever put in a car for a pregnant woman.  Not having to try to turn myself around is wonderful.

*I am one day more pregnant with Han Solo than I made it with Indy.  No one should ever be this pregnant.  Ever.  Yes, I know I'm not even due for another few weeks, but this is just ridiculous.

*Because of said length of my pregnancy, I hate everyone.  Possibly even you.  You're not pregnant and I am, and therefore, I have to hate you right now.  Sorry about that.

 *My poor sweet Yuka (my computer-she's Japanese, hence the name) started dying a while back.  Oh, it was slow at first, but things started progressing  rapidly.  Her power cord wouldn't connect to give her power, her battery died and had to be replaced (thank you ebay!), and then she started running sluggishly.  NOOOOO!!!  To be fair we've been together for almost 4 years and that's a good time in the life of a laptop.  All of our school files were on her though, so I quickly backed them up (along with everything else) to an external hard drive (wow, that sounds all techy and smart, doesn't it?) and bought a new computer.  Her name is Suki (also Japanese) and I'm not in love with her.  Oh, sure, she's all bright and shiny and comes with cool new programs, but her buttons feel weird and the touch pad isn't what I'm used to and...well, she's just not Yuka.   I know we'll grow to love each other, but for new she's weird and I'm having issues letting go of Yuka.  We've been through so much!  I used her for work, back when I had a job (I miss you paycheck!), we moved to Germany together, she went on a cruise, flew to England and kept me entertained while I was in the hospital.  She's been so good to me, and I just had to put her aside like a piece of trash.  Forgive me, Yuka.  Let the singing commence.  ..And I-I-I-I will always love you-u-u-u-u-u-....

*That reminds me.  When I was in college (a million years ago), I had a roommate my sophomore year (I lived in a quad room, so she was one of my 3 roommates) who was highly entertaining and very, very sweet.  She had one bad habit though.  She loved Whitney Houston.  A lot.  Too much.  She would put on her headphones (yes, this was back in the prehistoric days before earbuds and iPods) and sit next to her stereo (can you imagine?) and sing Whitney Houston at the top of her lungs.  It made me and my other roommates crazy.  Of course I Will Always Love You was her favorite song to sing.  I hated that song so much.  We had to have a stereo/headphone/singing intervention. 

*Ugh.  I had a big old, painful contraction while typing that.  Will it progress to labor though?  Probably not.  If you're not pregnant, I still hate you.  I'll love you again soon though.

*This photo has been on my computer forever, but I never posted it.  I figure since I'm going rogue today though, why not?

So, there you have it.  My rogue RTT.  I don't need no stinkin' host.  That's not true.  Come back Keely!  Come back!!!!!

Awesome post!!!

Happy Random Tuesday!!

I'm sorry you're miserable. I'm sorry you hate me too. I remember being That pregnant. I'm pretty sure I didn't like anyone either (and we were staying with my in-laws at the time! I love my MiL but my FiL is lucky he survived my pregnancy!!)

Happy Tuesday!

Oh, those last uncomfortable days of pregnancy. I totally understand the hatred. I don't blame you. Hope you get to see Han Solo soon--but not too soon.

Hi there nice to meet you, came through Expat Mum. Jody here, Kiwi living in Oakland (though used to Live in London) Love your blog and agree life too short to wear ugly shoes, always wear heels out at night though must admit am complete hypocrite - cannot get these ugly big old Uggs off during day, am addicted... wonder if there is a cure? Or support group. Hang on in there with the bubs - how exciting!

There must be some sort of magnetic pull between your eye and citrus because that happens to me all the time too.

My dad likes his grapefruit with salt too - me, I like it with sugar. Lots of sugar. Which probably negates eating a grapefruit as a 'healthy' option.

Cars are definitely not built with pregnant women in mind. When do you plan on going for long walks or eating spicy food or having sex to instigate labor? ;)

I'm going to hell - I'm laughing hysterically at that last picture.

Thanks for linking up and being a rebel with me - let's do it again next week too, shall we? ;)

I LOVE that picture!

Can't say anything pregnancy related since I never was pregnant but I hope you will get comfortable through the last weeks..

Hilary said...

I always get it in my eye too!

Raven said...

Ok, I'm so stealing that pic. With your permission, of course. In anticipation of your saying yes, I've already saved it onto my puter. Which is named Lila, btw, after my fave evil b*tch from 'Angel.'

I'm with Indy. How can you put that in your mouth?

Great random. I hope you pop soon! ;)
