Wordnerd Made Me Do It

A Thursday Thirteen that is… and I wasn’t off today and I’m not eating dove chocolates. I do however, have a bunch of random crap rolling around in my head and lack the drive to focus on just one of them and turn them into something meaningful.

So.. that means if you’re up for some meaningless drivel, you’re in the right place.

1. I saw/talked to one of my ex-boyfriends yesterday. Other than starting to lose his hair, he’s exactly the same person he was 10 years ago, and for that, he should be ashamed.

2. For the first time in I don’t know how long, I wanted to give out candy on Halloween and by the time I got the store to buy some, the cupboards were BARE. Everyone was disappointed.

3. I did get to see a ladybug, a cheerleader and a little red devil. Those kids made me happy.

4. The teenager lurking around my neighborhood dressed like the grim reaper almost made me pee myself.

5. The dogs had the same effect on him, though - that’ll learn him to walk up behind a girl in the dark with TWO German Shepherds. Heh.

6. I spent a ridiculous amount of time looking at thermometers and rain gauges online today, cause I secretly think they are cool.

7. I love pygmy goats.

8. I want to leave a bag of flaming dog poo on my across-the-street neighbors’ doorstep.

9. A friend told me today she’s expecting a baby in the spring. Her joy was infectious.

10. Next summer my best girlfriends and I are renting a house on the coast of North Carolina – I have the distinct feeling this will be one of the best weeks of my life. I’m already excited.

11.The only couple I ever set up is expecting their first child in January. I don’t think I’ve ever known two people more perfect for each other.

12. I want to buy something ridiculously extravagant and utterly useless for my birthday this year.

13. I’m taking suggestions for #12.

Happy Friday and weekend all.

Worthless and extravagant?


Gold Chains for your dogs would be a good start.

I don't mean leashes.

I want to go to the beach with a bunch of women!!

When is your birthday? Only if I know when it is can I suggest something decadent for it!

JustRun said...

Great job on the list.
How long do we have to think of suggestions for this extravagant birthday gift?

Buy yourself a day at the spa: seaweed wraps, pedicure, massage, the works.

Buy yourself a bitchin' sexy cocktail dress, new CFM pumps, and doll yourself up.

Treat yourself to a beautiful room at a nice hotel, complete with breakfast in bed.

Have cocktails at a swanky bar and watch the men drool.

What you do after that is up to you. ;-)

Sheepdip! Whole 3 paragraph comment, gone. Freakin' stupid-fingers!

OK, I'll be on the lookout for RE gifts. When's the date?

//it's a worthy cause
///need a teevee first

Hmmm, self-gifting? What a fabulous idea.

I would recommned a bed like mine, but then that wouldn't meet the "utterly useless" criterion, for that sucker cured by back problems. SOoooooo....

Get yourself a pygmy goat. And goatherd to go along with it. Whose name is Sven, and is 23 years old. And like to give footrubs to the mistress of the ouse. Yeah, a pygmy goat, fo sho.

When is your berfday sunshine?

I always like to buy a Fendi Purse when I feel like being extravagant.

I understand the love and appreciation of thermometers and rain gauges (personal hazard of being married to a meteorologist - GRIN). Let me know if you want to talk shop. I personally recommend Davis Instruments – good stuff. There is also a grassroots group that is collecting rainfall data in select cities to create a database for the NWS or EPA. Okay, starting to geek out, so I’ll stop now.

Hm. I seem to have a knack for extravagant and utterly useless gifts...I am certain my wife could make some recommendations...the flaming dog crap trick is still funny, even though most people are aware of it- they still can't seem to stifle their basic fear of fire, and thus the urge to stomp it out...collect the dog poop for a good six months, and then fill a giant grocery sized paper thats a FIRE...
