RTT: Facebook randoms


Why, hello RTT. I haven't seen you in a while. How have you been? Me? Okay, thanks for asking. Okay, enough chit chat. Let's get down to business. <-- Sounds dirty.

*Since I haven't been RTTing, I occasionally post random things on Facebook.  I thought I'd share those with you.  You're welcome.

-Standing in the rain holding a bag of dog poo. <---This will be the title to my memoir.

-Never say "Really? Could I drop something else on the floor?" because yes, yes you can and having mocked the fates with your sarcasm, you will.

-You know you love your dogs when you're willing to pick up their poo with only a thin bag between your hand and said poo.

-The days of wine and roses have become the days of wine and wine.

-Just found a box of Thin Mints in the back of the pantry!!!! It's like Christmas!

-My abs hurt from all the sneezing [due to allergies]. Can I consider it a workout?

-I'd like to know if hitting someone over the back of the head with the butt of a gun really knocks them out like it does in the movies/TV. Unfortunately I don't think I'll find many willing test subjects. 

-I want to live in a compound. Not a federal compound, mind you. A fancy one. Like a Colombian drug lord or a Kennedy (though it could be argued that the 2 are not all that dissimilar).

-I'm outside with the dogs and suddenly realized I'm the only one standing in the grass. They're both standing on the sidewalk looking at me. 

That's a lot of randoms.  Do I need more?  Of course.  I wouldn't want you to feel cheated.  I'm all about you.  No, that wasn't lightening you heard.

*James Bond has settled in the 'Stan and is doing well.  I've shipped him so many boxes it's almost ridiculous.  The next thing he wants me to ship?  His weight bench, bar and some weights.  Why?  Because they aren't allowed to carry their weapons into the gym, but they're not allowed to walk to the opposite side of the FOB (forward operating base) where the gym is without their weapon.  The people who live near the gym can go, but James Bond lives on the opposite side.  

*On his FOB, they have 2 Chinese restaurants!  WTH?

*About a week or so ago, Indy got a hangnail that he kept picking at (despite me constantly telling him not to) and it got infected.  We put some sort of goo stuff on it and a waterproof bandage that he wore for about 2 days.  On the morning of the 3rd day he came running into my room holding his finger, which was all shriveled up from the bandage and looking very upset said "Mom!  Look at my finger.  I'm 2% dead!"  Why he decided it was 2%, I've yet to figure out.

*I love Brian Adams' (Adams's?) voice, but I don't care for many of his songs.  

*I super size ♥ Sting.  With The Police, without The Police, I don't care.  I just ♥ him.

*Why am I thinking about Sting and Bryan Adams?  Because in the car I heard the song "All for One" (or it is "All for Love") with Bryan Adams, Sting and Rod Stewart.  While it's not a bad song, I would like it better without Rod Stewart.  No offense to Rod, Maggie May is one of the coolest songs ever, but his voice just doesn't go with Bryan Adams' (again Adams's?) or Sting's voices.  

*Han Solo has learned to walk.  Heaven help us all.

*We're going on a cruise in Sept!  Gigi (my mom) is coming over to go with us (read: help with the boys).  We're taking a 12 night cruise on Royal Caribbean Int'l that leaves from Rome (Civitevecchia is the port), and goes to Egypt (yes, we will be going to Cairo), Greece, Turkey, Israel and stopping in Naples before heading back to Rome.  It should be awesome.

*Speaking of Egypt, look at the photo below.  The black is the shadows of the camels, which are in white.  Isn't that cool?

*How awesome is this?

*And for my random funny of the day:

Okay, I think I'm done.  Whew.  I'm linking up with TTUT too, so click the button below and/or the button above to link your own RTT and TTUT. 

Kisses my sweets!

LOL the 2% dead comment is hilarious. I never know what makes kids say what they do but it's endlessly amusing.

Always love your rants! It's amazing what we do for our babies, isn't it? During a tornado warning, I had my kitties in the bathroom while I was in the hall! Can't believe Han is walking! And the 2% it! Have a great week!...hugs...Debbie

Love that he was 2% dead. Was he happy with the revival--unshrivilling?

I think the worst part about picking up dog doo is the fact that it is warm. Cold I could do better, but who wants to wait until it cools? And that whole thought is just ew!

That sounds like a fabulous cruise!!! I'm so jealous!!!

Connie Weiss said...

I'd love to go on a cruise right now!

I'm sorry...did you just say you found THIN MINTS in your pantry? How did that happen??? I'm so jealous. I always regret not getting 10 boxes {or 20} to last the whole year.

Ok, that toilet paper is FUNNY!!!!!!

Thanks for linking up!!

Indy and Princess Nagger's minds must run on the same wavelength - she's probably say something similar as the 2% it!

Sounds like you're dealing with a lot of shit...I mean, doggy poo. ;)

What a bummer James Bond can't work out at the gym on base because they don't have it worked out he can bring his weapons and store them in a lockable locker or something there. Should be interesting shipping his weights and bench!

The camel picture is SO cool!!

That last picture totally cracked me up - I need to get some of that TP!! :)

So awesome to have you back! You've been missed! :)

Summer Heat, Christmas in June, Misspelled Fun, and 20 Mules
