RTT: Gettin' Link-y with it.


Crap, I fell of the blogging wagon again. Still, it's Tuesday, so here I am.  Randoms abound!  I've got loads of links today in my randoms.  Make sure you click them.

*How do you know when Zwieback toast is stale?

*Exercising sucks.  S-U-C-K-S

*Han Solo is becoming more and more proficient at walking.  I've had to barricade the living room.

*Indy is going to summer camp M-F and it is wearing him out!  He comes home every day dragging.

*Did you know there's a zombie survival training camp????  Holy crap I want to go!    How much fun would that be?  If only I could get Simon Pegg and Nick Frost to join me!  In case you haven't seen it, they were in Shuan of the Dead, which is hands down the funniest zombie movie ever made.  Anyone want to go with me?  The one I linked is only a weekend camp, but there are actually week long camps.  I. Must. Do. This.

*In case you haven't heard, it's official.  Johnny Depp and that woman are over.  Yes, I'm the reason.

*Every day Indy asks what's for dinner.  OMG that has to be the most annoying question ever.  I finally put up a chalkboard and write the menu for dinner on it.  He  loves this.  I write in cursive so he gets practice reading it.  Cursive is really hard for him because of his dyslexia.  I've told him though that if he can't read it, he can't eat.  Evil.

*Rock or sculpture?

*Do you have the Alike App?  It's supposed to tell you which celebrity you look like based on a photo taken with your phone/pad.  Nathan Fillion (♥) posted this one.  It's hilarious.

*Ann Curry got fired from the Today Show.  I can't say I'm surprised.  She just didn't  And who the hell was dressing her?  She looked like she was wearing a brightly colored potato sack most of the time.  She got a $10 million payout though.   I would be a very bad host for $10 million. <-That sounds dirty.   Say it in a phone sex voice and it's ultra-dirty.

*Oh, don't pretend you don't know what a phone sex voice sounds like.  We all do.

*The Denver Police have a task force call the Pimp Hunters.  I would go see a movie with this title.

*Have you seen Snow White and the Huntsman?  It was far, far better than I expected.  See it.

*Speaking of, what's with all the fairytale movie/tv shows lately?

*Grimm!  Have you watched it?  I love this show.  David Giuntoli, who plays Nick, looks like he should play Superman.  He's a cutie.  It's his sidekick, Monroe, though that really makes the show for me.  He's a blutbad (kind of like a werewolf, but not) and sheer awesome for his one liners and frequent girly fear. 

*James Bond has had me order the most bizarre things to have shipped to him. Example?  Throwing knives.  I'm not sure what he's doing over there.  Training for zombie camp?  Thank goodness for Amazon.

*Han Solo, being a male, is fascinated with the DVD player.  I swear it has a gravitational pull that sucks him in.  I've pulled him away from it so many times it's not funny.  One day I smacked his hand lightly (seriously, very lightly) and told him "no, no, no."  It apparently made an impression because now if I see him near the DVD player all I have to say is "What are you doing?" and he sits himself down, smacks his hand and says "no, no, no!"

*It's like they know me:

*Haha!  I knew it!

Okay, I'm done for today.  Click the link at the top or below to link up your own Randoms and/or TTUT.  I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday.

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!

Back from hiatus

Okay, I took some time off and moped around the house for about a month after James Bond left for Afghanistan (he's doing fine), but I've decided it's time to end the moping and get back to being me. While I was "away" so to speak I found it was both stressful and relieving not to be blogging. It was stressful because I felt the need to blog and get the emotions and whatnot out, but it was relieving because I didn't feel the pressure to be witty or funny (both of which I totally am).
So, how did I fill my non-blogging month, you might wonder?
Watched Season 1 of Game of Thrones (awesome!)
Watched the first 3 seasons of Castle
Twitter stalked Nathan Fillion
Thought about Johnny Depp :)
Cleaned my bedroom (James Bond messy!)
Took loads of videos of Indy and Han Solo to email to James Bond
Ate an entire box of Nilla Wafers in 2 days (so wrong, yet so right)
Thought about Johnny Depp ;)
Watched the entire season of Firefly and then Serenity (Browncoats!)
Volunteered to lead a set of badge requirements for Cub Scouts next year (clearly I was deeply depressed when I did this!)
Been incredibly witty on Facebook (according to some of my friends)
Cleaned our school area (it was sooooo messy)
Booked a cruise for September
Started planning next school year
Drank a lot of wine

Wow, I've done a lot in a month haven't I?  :)

I'm going to try to blog more regularly now that my funk is (mostly) gone, especially my beloved Random Thoughts Tuesday. 

I hope you are all well and haven't forgotten me during my hiatus.
