If you’re not already a part of the Random Tuesday Thoughts club, you’re lame. I didn’t mean that, sorry. I meant to say is that there’s always room for one more, just head on over to Keely’s place to get started.

It seems that after my post last week about being a birderer (bird murderer), quite a few people came out of the woodwork to share stories of their own animal killing sprees or their desire to do so. It was a bit disturbing but who am I to talk.

Speaking of which, what the fuck is up with suicidal squirrels? I’ve been extra careful to you know, not kill any animals and I’ve had three squirrels dart out in front of my car in the past week. Luckily for them, my racecar style drying allowed me to maneuver around said rodents and spare their lives. I’m a firm believer that squirrels are evil. They’re cute evil in an Olsen twins kind of way.

Our garage door is acting wacky so we’ve been mostly leaving it open during the day to avoid having to rig it to close. For the past week, I’ve noticed a cute little chirpy bird carrying twigs in and out of the area. He (or she) defensively squawks at me whenever I get too close. Yesterday, we found a complete bird’s nest in the garage (there were no eggs in it). Jamie played the part of the birderer and dumped the nest in the yard.

I just finished watching the Big Love season finale. This really isn’t about that though. I was laying on the couch and my dog Chloe was laying on the floor beside me. She let out the worst dog fart I’ve ever smelled in my life and I accidentally breathed the entire thing in before I caught on.

The other day I ran errands for awhile while Jamie was home with the napping kids. It wasn’t until I pulled back in the garage that I realized I’d been signing along to Graham’s Laurie Berkner CD the entire time. It’s sad that I don’t even remember to play adult music when I don’t have kids around.

Have you had these Kashi Go Lean bars? Holy crap dude, they’re good. I just realized that that sentence sounded like an ad but I can assure you, it wasn’t.

My name is Casey and it’s been two days since my last French fry. Expect lots of bitching from me as I embark on my new journey to give up French fries and caffeine completely. That sentence hurt to type.

In case you were wondering, the alphabet song from the Letter Factory video is still in my head for the third week in a row. Someone please give me a better song to get stuck in there before I follow through on my threat to inflict bodily harm on myself or others.

Poop. A couple of you noticed that the poop was missing from last week’s post. I’m sorry to have done that to you.

    Girl, go get you some music! I couldn’t live without it. (of course, I don’t have any idea what the Big Love show is, either). I’m sure I’m missing out.

    We have to watch out for the raccoons…and I live in the city!

    Squirrels are rats with good PR and a death wish. That’s all I’m saying.

    What? No caffeine or FRENCH FRIES??? I don’t know how I could go on without those two things.

    Those stupid squirrels just don’t look both ways before they cross the street.

  4. Peggy

    I can totally see why you are giving up french fries being the headmistress of HASAY and all, but why in the sweet bejeezus would anyone want to give up caffiene? Is there something you’re not telling us Ms. Casey? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sidenote…when a squirrel runs out in front of my car, my kids shout Get it! Get it Mom! Ahh, I have trained them well.

    Squirrels are merely rats who got a fair shake in life.

    Whoa 2 days, that is like a record!!! Glad to have the poop back, J/K. The ABC song is better than the one of Katy Perry’s songs…I won’t even give you a line – it drove me crazy, I had it stuck in my head for two weeks. Turn the easy listening channel on and sing along – you know the songs we grew up with, yeah I know we’re not that old, but that what happens.

    You are hilarious. You did TOO mean that about being lame. Luckily, I’m good; I did my randomness today. Also, suicidal squirrels are a problem in our neighborhood as well. WTF?

  9. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

    That’s too funny a bird built a nest in your garage – well, maybe not for you… He/she probably wanted a birds eye view to the target of your car… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Either that or it was the ‘lookout’ for the seagulls to keep them abreast of your comings and goings… OK, I’m done with the bird crap. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Great job on 2 days without fries! But I have to echo Peggy’s question about the caffeine…what gives? Great Randomness as usual, Casey! Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I swore off french fries after seeing the movie “SuperSize Me”. It was a long, long, LONG time before I could even walk into a fast food restaurant after that. I was traumatized.

    Why are you giving up French fries and caffeine?? are you stupid?

    No worries.. I added some poop to my post today too. Cause I’m a good friend like that.

    Yikes! I admire your commitment though. I gave up fries a long time ago and it was really hard at first. Now I have them as an occasional treat. It’s much better (and I eat WAY less). Also, try cheating and making some sweet potato fries… healthier and tasty.

    Damn Michelle, now I want sweet potato fries.

    I laughed out loud at “birderer”. Then everybody at work wanted to know what I was laughing at. Do you realize how difficult that is to explain to “normal” people??

    I’ve never played ‘kid’ music for my children, and am kind of regretting that now since my 3 year-old has starting singing along to Beyonce. Nah…who am I kidding? It’s funny as hell.

    We’ve got a pair of birds roosting in our roof now, except we can’t really get to them. They tore a hole in the screen that covers the soffit vents. We’re hoping they vacate after Spring, but early in the morning you can hear them scritching, it’s weird. I should invite you over to “take care” of them…

    Dog farts are wretched. I swear my dogs are rotting on the inside. Their farts make me want to stop eating forever…

    I wonder how many points those bars are worth? I’ll have to look that up. I also can’t believe the double whammy you’re giving yourself with the french fries AND the caffeine. Seriously, what are you, some kind of over-achiever out to make the rest of us look bad? I just had to walk all the way across the building to get my iced tea fix.

    Uhm. Is there some secret super mom trick to surviving without caffiene? I’m still working on that one.

    And birds? In garages? And houses? Pass. I had one fly into our house while I was pregnant with Roo & thought I was going to go into pre-term labor.

    And squirrels. On the same level as cats. If they are stupid enough to run into the street…well, I’m just saying.

    My XM has been stuck on Radio Disney the last couple weeks. I usually don’t notice that’s what it’s on until I’m getting ready to turn the van off. I’ve started singing along to the songs. I think I need some serious help for that!

    Giving up french fries AND caffeine? I think YOU need some serious help for that!!

    Copacabana. That song is GUARANTEED to get any song out of your head. The problem is you’re now stuck with Copacabana going through your head. Crap. Now it’s stuck in MY head.

    What?! Giving up caffeine?! As in coffee?!!! No way. I would die. Joe and I were freaking out because we hit the Motherload of Casi Sielo coffee beans at the Starbucks INSIDE the mall!!! These are only sold for a short time period each year and I spend the rest of the year hankering for them. Recession? I grabbed two bags. So I give up food for a few days?

    Good luck with your journey. I’ll be sitting back with a hot cup of Joe reading all about it.

    4) You can have the song that’s been stuck in MY head! It’s on my RTT post.
