Random thoughts #18: Billboards, travel, solar system, & kid surprises


There was a taxi with the label “clean air vehicle”…and the driver was smoking. 😐

Ahhhh…I haven’t been on Molendrix.com in forever.

I like the combo of pink and tan.

I’ve been reading a lot of free Kindle travel books lately.

Ketchup actually makes a really good dip for plain potato chips.

In Vegas, if you want an all-black taxi with a cool driver dressed in a black suit and wearing sunglasses and an earpiece, it’s $50. A regular taxi with a plainly-dressed driver is $20. In Vegas.

Have you seen the largest photograph ever taken? Click here and prepare to have your mind blown by the sheer grandeur of our solar system and our God who made it.

“Stay connected. Or stay disconnected, ya ignoramus.”
-a radio station billboard

Kindergarten boy, about Pirates of the Caribbean: “They’re scary. But they have good songs.” Never seen it but from the previews I’ve seen and the couple songs I’ve heard, that seems accurate.

Kindergarten boy, on anacondas: “Are those a fruit? Or a vegetable?” Yes, genuine question.

“You don’t have to be famous to be unforgettable.”
-billboard

Wendy’s honey mustard is a nice dip for homemade chicken sandwiches.

1st grade boy asks: “Is everyone the same?” And I’m thinking, what do you mean-quality, looks, identity, value…? #loadedquestion

So cute to see a little girl at school practicing moves from her hula class.

There must be something artsy you can make out of paper crayon wrappers.

Know what’s really cool? Watching an 8th grade boy sit with a kindergarten boy and patiently teach him how to play a game. 🙂

“Grab your hat and let’s go to Paris!”

Never mind that that ^^ is a snippet of a kindergartner girls’ “pretend” game. That sounds good NOW 😉

At first I didn’t like the Kindle’s non-auto-rotate feature, but now I really do. 8)

“You won the game, but the game says you lost.”
“You won the battle, but lost the war.”
-middle school boys during a game

My littlest brother asked “Can I have cinnamon gum?” and my mom thought he was asking for “some income.” XD

Getting a swag code entered 11 seconds before it expires :O

The need for discernment…

I just can’t look up at the sky and NOT think about our God.

When I consider Thy heavens, the work of Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained; what is man, that Thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that Thou visitest him?
-Psalm 8:3-4

Random thoughts #15: Wind, Kid talkers, & Foreign


I’ve seen it get so windy the stream of water from a water fountain was getting knocked around.

Kindergartener 1: “I’m scared of monsters.”
Kindergartener 2: “Monsters aren’t real.”
K 1: “I know. But I’m scared of spiders and snakes.”
K 2: “Spiders and snakes aren’t rea…”
:p

Kinder girl, a little confused on her announcement of her dog’s pregnancy: “I’m making new puppies. Um… I’m getting new puppies hatched.”

A 3rd grade girl was chatting with my coworker, and mentioned wanting to go to a “really good” college. My coworker asked “Oh yeah? Which one?” The answer: “Oxford.” #booyah

I’ve seen it get so windy a bee couldn’t fly straight.

Once I opened wordcounter.net and the page came up, containing the last college essay I pasted in there 3 weeks back 😮

Time for “Guess That Kindergartener-Mangled Word”! Here it is: “BEKUTOR.” And the answer is… “COMPUTER”!

Leprechauns and faeries. Easter Bunny and Father Christmas.

3 posts before this one is the first post in a mini-series about my trip to New York City this Fall 😀

“At Rome things can or cannot be done; when you are told anything cannot be done, there is an end of it.”
“It is much more convenient at Paris,—when anything cannot be done, you pay double, and it is done directly.”
-The Count of Monte Cristo.

I haven’t been to either Rome or Paris (YET), but nonetheless I thought that quote ^ was hilarious 😆

Good thing da Vinci studied birds to learn how to fly, and not dragonflies. Dragonflies’ flight is so erratic.

A 1st grade girl drew a picture of the Titanic at daycare. I asked if she was learning about that in class, and she nonchalantly said, “No, I just watched The History Channel.” So sweet that learning is so natural to her.

We were watching “The Jungle Book” in daycare, and one little girl asked, “Does he [Mowgli] grow up to be Tarzan?” Noooo…but…good question…

Talking to people from other counties is SO. Much. Fun. Not even sure it classifies as a “conversation” since they do most of the talking, but still. Plus, the accents!!

How come Dr. Pepper tastes so much like cherry? 😕

Speak life, speak life
Through the deadest, darkest night
Speak life, speak life
Though the sun don’t shine
And you don’t know why

-“Speak Life,” TobyMac

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
It shall not return to Me void,
But it shall accomplish what I please,
And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
~Isaiah 55:11

Speak God’s Word. It won’t return void.

And because I haven’t put a picture in this post yet, I’ll close with this, which you may recognize as the 2012 National Geographic photo contest winner. I love nature photography and I LOVE tigers (so exotic, clever, and majestic!!) so I love this photo!
