Happy Things

Happy thing for April 17: Cats have a private entrance at the vet next door to our church. They don't have to use the same door as the dogs and other riff raff.

Is There Really a Point to This?

Ok. So what's the point, really, of this blog? I love reading other blogs and I love the idea of having my own, but this space just seems to flounder and I'd way rather read others than write mine. On the other hand I enjoy having a "web presence." I may reopen my online shop eventually and this blog is a convenient resource for that. So. Does this mean I should find a focus? I could write a craft blog or a mom blog or choose from any number of subjects on which to focus. I could just keep it as way to update far-flung family and friends. I could continue as I am without changing anything and continue to leave it on the back burner of my life or I could just shut the whole thing down altogether. Just musing and throwing around some thoughts.

Thoughts? Comments? Email me or leave a comment or something.

There is Great Need for a Sarcasm Font

Came across this recently and it made me laugh so I'm posting it here. Who can't use a few extra laughs!

Random Thoughts of the Day
  •   More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.
  •   Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
  •   I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
  •   The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.
  •   Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.
  •   There is a great need for sarcasm font.
  •   Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.
  •   I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
  •   Was learning cursive really necessary?
  •   Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".
  •   I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
  •   Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".
  •   How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?
  •    I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent an aggressive driver from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!
  •   MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
  •   I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.
  •   I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
  •   Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from; this shouldn't be a problem....
  •   You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren’t doing anything productive for the rest of the day.
  •   There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
  •   I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
  •   I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.
  •   Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.
  •   It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.
  •  I wonder if cops ever get annoyed at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.
  •   Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.
