Random Thoughts....

...can someone PLEASE tell me why the hell my weather widget, at one point today, read 87-mother-scratchin'-degrees?!?! AND, my car thermometer said 91 while I was running errands? Did Mother Nature not check her damn calendar?! It's OCTOBER 9th, beeoch, not July 9th!!

...my daddy was not born here, and English is not his native language. Although he's now been in this country for nearly 50 years (since he was 18), every once in a while, he let's a doozy fly. Today, while we were watching Check, Please, they were reviewing an Ethiopian restaurant. He was a bit turned off by the idea of communal dining, and said to us, "That just not my tea bag." Obviously, he meant to say, "...not my cup of tea." However, he said it with this strange glint in his eye that makes me almost think he said it wrong on purpose. He's kinda silly like that. Either way, it made me laugh.

...Stud's beautiful self-portrait has been ruined. I'm really sad about the whole thing. He was working on it during drama club yesterday (who the HELL knows why!) and one of his friends came over to talk to him. Somehow, while talking, this kid accidentally spit on the picture (yeah, I know, ewww) and somehow this caused a hole in Stud's nose. I think he tried to wipe it or something, who knows. All I know is, in an attempt to cover up the fact that there is now a hole in his nose, Stud drew a freakin' band-aid over it, so it looks like he's got a band-aid on his nose. WTF?! I may just have to take picture of it later to share. He thinks it's hilarious, but I'm not too happy about it. Thank God I took the picture of it for you guys the other day, so I can see what it originally looked like.

...I took Stud and my two nieces to Bakers Square for lunch today. It was delish, thanks for asking! When I was paying, there was a problem with the credit card machine, so it took a few minutes. Seriously, I don't think it took more than 5-7 minutes total. At one point, the manager called the helpline, and he told them that he's had a customer waiting for over 10 minutes. Huh? At that point, I seriously think it had barely been 5. As they were fixing the problem, he asks me what my favorite pie was, and I realized he was about to give me a free pie. I told him that was completely unnecessary, and he says, "Nonsense, you've been stuck here for 15 minutes!" Seriously, it was about 30 seconds after he told the helpline I had been waiting for 10 minutes. Like I said, in under 7 minutes, I was out the door, with a delicious Caramel Pecan Silk Supreme pie, to boot! Thank you Bakers Square! As much as I'd love to just sit down with that pie and a fork...

...I'll be taking it over to Stud's friend's house tomorrow. Stud will, once again, be joining his friend and his friend's dad (and a handful of other friends) at a Bull's game. I figure the boys will definitely get more enjoyment out of the pie than I will. Don't get me wrong, I would enjoy every single, sinful bite, however, I would be beating myself up big time afterward if I ate it! I'd rather pay it forward, anyway.

...I can not wait to watch Saturday Night Live tonight. Jane Lynch is hosting!!! I've always enjoyed her work, but I especially adore her on glee! Despite my excitement, I so afraid I'll be asleep long before the opening skit. Damn. Maybe I can nap...it's only 7pm...I have time...

...Stud finally remembered to bring some art projects home for me to scan. I've been asking him for weeks to bring them home. Every week, the boys have to turn in a drawing based on a theme of their choice. At the end of the project, all the drawings will be put together in a kind of collage. Anyway, Stud chose The Seven Deadly Sins as his theme. The boys also had to choose a symbol in the beginning of the semester, and then work that symbol into all their drawings. He chose an apple. It will all make more sense once I get the pictures scanned and posted here. So far, he's been doing an incredible job. I'll try and post them tonight.

...I guess I'm going to skip my nap and scan some pictures. :)

I can only hope you had ice cream to go along with that free pie. That would be heavenly, or something divine in nature like that. ;)

I can't help you on the weather situation.
Your dad is funny. tea bag? lol.

Sorry about SD's portrait...dang, that sounds like a Seinfeld episode!

...hmmm...I wonder if your dear old dad is aware of what "tea bagging" is...you probably don't want that visual. Let's go with the idea that he really mean "Cup of tea"...
