Random Thoughts #12: Actually, foods, & these kids


1st graders playing “pretend” during recess:
“Okay, and pretend I didn’t care.”
“No, pretend you did.”

Oh hey! Those peanut-flavored Cheetos things I talked about last time? Dipped them in frosting and they tasted much better πŸ˜€ Vanilla was best XD

I actually like those apples that wrinkle up when they get dry. Yum πŸ™‚ I need to do that drying apple slices for snacks thing.

The captions on our iPad got messed up so the first lines of dialogue came below and subsequent lines came on top. And now Elrond talks like Yoda. XD

When jump ropes tucked into little girls’ back collars and drifting down onto the floor turn them into Rapunzel…that’s imagination for ya!

Interesting is… A pair of women’s pants that are “raisin” in color.

This kid had a toy truck that actually folded out into Optimus Prime 😎

However did this knot get into this single strand of my hair?

Why do all the pictures of Sleeping Beauty have her in a pink dress, when for most of the movie she’s actually in a blue dress? Besides her waltzing about the forest in a peasant dress, she goes into the castle, pricks her finger, falls asleep, is woken up, and dances with the prince ALL in a blue dress. The only times her dress is pink are when it’s being made and during her wedding dance, at which times the fairies are alternating it between blue and pink. But in all the common Disney princess pictures, her dress is pink. πŸ˜•

My littlest brother to older sisters: “Can you do me a favor? Can you make more fireworks?” It was so cute, particularly because he’d never before used that first sentence πŸ™‚

Chili hot dogs are better than chili cheeseburgers.

My littlest brother had a hard time understanding why, when my sister had an earache, she got shots in her arms and legs, not her ears.

Once you start eating it, it’s hard to stop. You do realize I’m talking about watermelon, right? πŸ˜‰

This lady was wearing a plain grey-and-white striped maxi dress, but she’d jazzed it way up by adding a hat, hair tie, earrings, necklace, belt, purse, and sandalsβ€”all silver and sparkly. Completely transformed it 😎

Teal and bright cherry red. At first, they’re a bit of a jarring sight when you see them on alternating nails, but after some time they actually seem to meld pretty well.

An out-of-towner accidentally drove his car into a deep ditch on the side of a country road. Luckily a farmer happened by with his big old horse named Benny.
The man asked for help. The farmer said Benny could pull his car out. So he backed Benny up and hitched Benny to the man’s car bumper.
Then he yelled, “Pull, Nellie, pull.”
Benny didn’t move.
Then he yelled, “Come on, pull Ranger.”
Still, Benny didn’t move.
Then he yelled really loud, “Now pull, Fred, pull hard.”
Benny just stood.
Then the farmer nonchalantly said,
“Okay, Benny, pull.”
Benny pulled the car out of the ditch.
The man was very appreciative but curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times.
The farmer said, “Oh, Benny is blind, and if he thought he was the only one pulling he wouldn’t even try.”

I think this joke actually has a point. Unlike Benny, we do have others around us who are on the same mission. Reminded me of this verse: “Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.” (1 Kings 19:18).

Don’t despair, there are others out there who still love God and want to follow Him!

Random Thoughts #2: Food, rain, & professors


We watched “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” Now we’re looking at every car, tv, computer and lamp in terms of what it could turn into.

I’m enjoying the cool, foggy, cloudy, rainy weather we’re having in SoCal during this, the second of our 2 seasons: cooler (warmer being the first). But…I miss real Colorado seasons. With snow.

I had 2 Oreos this week. I think that’s more than I’ve had in the past 6 months πŸ˜•

We got rain today! I went out and did a photo shoot when it stopped πŸ˜€

How often do you get told to write something on a fantastic movie for a college assignment? Well, if you take TESC’s Games People Play, at least once! The Movie? “The Princess Bride” πŸ˜€ My professor was praising it as having some of the most and best game theory examples in any movie he’d seen 😎 Now that’s as good an excuse as any to watch it, right? πŸ˜‰

Nachos are the best!

Hot peach tea on a cold rainy evening…bliss.

http://www.dailyedge.ie/ipad-robbery-fail-1151493-Oct2013/ Oh dear. Maybe think twice next time? πŸ˜†

“What did people do before coffee was invented?”

So, I’m watching the daycare kids, and these 1st and 2nd grade girls are playing with paper pretend cameras. “Just take a picture, then delete it.” says one. So a girl “takes” a picture then is standing there looking at the camera. “She doen’t know how to delete.” says another girl, running over to “help” her friend. The tech-savvy kids nowadays… 😯

Nothing beats real melted butter on popcorn πŸ™‚

So thankful for nice college professors. They offset the not-nice ones.

Maybe this post has so many food items because it’s 8:00 PM and I haven’t had dinner yet πŸ˜•

Good night! I leave you with this.
