Random Thoughts Part 2

  • Don't you hate when your word/number processing software tries to finish a thought for you, based on your previous entries? Excel is always trying to help me out this way, and now net fill-ins are behaving this way too (such as the title blank of this blog), and although it's handy once out of every ten or so times, it's like having some really overly anxiously helpful geek trying to finish your sentence all the time, or maybe it reminds of when my big sister used to repeat everything I said until I did something that I got in trouble for.
  • Speaking of big sisters, I got a new pair of glasses recently, which always reminds me of the terrible, awful story my mean big sister told me the night after I came home with snazzy new cat-eye glasses. Tortoiseshell. Hot. Second-grade haut eyewear. She waited until we were tucked in for the night, then in her scariest, whisperiest, ghost-story voice, she told me that she knew a girl who got a pair of cat-eye glasses just like mine, and one night, she fell asleep with them on, and she was turned into a cat! And her mother saw her and screamed and she had to jump out the window and was never seen again! I told her she was full of crap, but just to be on the safe side, I never read in bed with my glasses on again. Just in case. Nor have I bought another pair of cat-eye glasses since. Not that it has been a big fashion hardship...
  • I weighed myself the other day, which was shocking - much scarier than a ghost story. This means that I will be enjoying fewer refreshing beverages and less chocolate. I hope it won't make me cranky and less entertaining, but there's always the chance. Of course, there's a good chance that a little crankiness might be quite entertaining...to others...especially to you skinny people.

Ok...I admit it.......I was blog surfing, becoming hopelessly bored when I came across your blogspot. You should be a columnist.....Sort of a savvyier Erma Bombeck.......and while up until now I thought I was blogging to unleash pent up hostility.....after reading yours I realize ...... gee.......wish I could write such witty stuff......you are definitely good girl! Thank you!

Java: Thanks for the atta girl. It's fun to learn that someone has stumbled into my little writing gym and enjoyed it.
