Hello, there, all of Pseudo’s regular readers. As you probably all know, Pseudo is taking a bit of a break from her blog and has asked some of us to paddle out here to the mid-Pacific, come ashore on the aisle of Oahu, and sort of take care of the place for her.
Well, twist my arm. When asked which day she’d like me to come and blog-sit, she said, “Tuesday. I love your random thoughts.”
Did you read that, Ex-husband? SOMEONE likes the way I think. Nyah, nyah, nyah.
Well, The Young One is now officially a man.
He watched Caddyshack for the first time Monday afternoon and loved it.
*sigh* Yes, I knew this day would come.
How the blue blazes can I have 47 different popup blockers on my computer and STILL get 300 popup windows when I got to certain sites?
I really, really wish I could remember how this conversation came about, or what we were talking about. But all I remember is how The Young One, with a completely earnest yet disgusted look on his face, asked me:
“But Moooooooooom, how can you look at Beloved naked???”
Well, son, it’s a lot easier than you’d think, but I won’t traumatize you further by telling you that.
Jen at Sprite’s Keeper told a cute story for the Spin Cycle last week about how she and her husband both forgot their anniversary this year. Although Beloved and I have been “together” for over 10 years now, we haven’t been married long enough (2 1/2 years) to forget our anniversary.
But don’t think I don’t have a story (don’t I always??).
Once, when I was facing an emergency room admitting nurse and was asked my birthday, I came up a complete blank. Beloved, sitting next to me, chirped up, “January 15, 1958.”
How sweet, you all think. Except that is his EX-WIFE’S birthday.
There was no permanent damage done, but I think they’ll be hosting the Winter Olympics in Guatemala before he makes that mistake again.
A couple of months ago, I posted about a prank played by a friend of my brother’s. The prank consisted of the friend, Englebert, kidnapping lawn flamingos and ransoming them. If you care to read the post, you can do so here. And you really should, because it helps the following video make a little more sense.
And proves I wasn’t making it up, although I had NO idea that it had made national “news” until I told my brother I’d blogged about it. He then gave me the link.
The video is even funnier when you realize that the anchor of the tabloid news show it appeared on is Bill O’Reilly.
For more random thoughts, go visit Keely at The Un-Mom. She’ll take that $32,000 and a picture of Marlon Brando, no questions asked.
