It’s Tuesday again and it’s time to join our favorite zombie-freak Keely for her weekly random thoughts. Don’t forget to check out the bottom of the post for a super cool giveaway.
I’m going on week three without French fries. I vaguely remember what they taste like and only dream about them once in awhile. It’s a long recovery process but I’m working on it.
I spent Saturday afternoon spraying wood stain on the new swing set. Balancing on the top of a ladder with a sprayer isn’t the safest process and to make matters worse, I was downwind of the spray. I ended up with red highlights and a spotty fake tan. A girl’s gotta multitask when there’s no time for pampering.
Graham went to a birthday party on Saturday for the son of my mom’s coworker. The kid turned one and they had: a ball pit, a bouncy room, a face painter, a balloon artist and a live singer. Elliot turns one on the 17th and she’ll be lucky if I make her a cake. The poor kid is getting no hoopla, she can paint her face with icing if she wants to.
Speaking of which, what do we get our one year old who has every toy imaginable? Her current obsessions are ducks and peacocks. I’m opposed to buying her either since you know how I feel about poultry.
I hate Twitter. Gasp!
Does anybody watch Breaking Bad? That show is phenomenal but I keep having nightmares about things from the show. Also, the dude from Malcolm in the Middle stars in it and although he’s awesome, I can’t get past the fact that Malcolm’s dad cooks meth.
Speaking of killing (we were, right?), I killed a lizard last week. I was dragging the lounge chairs into the yard in preparation to pressure wash the patio. I laid the recliner portion flat and must has squashed him on impact. When I found him the next day, he was pancake-ish. I keep telling the lizards that it’s not okay to live inside the patio but they never listen. Let this serve as a warning to future patio occupants that I mean business.
Today marks my 200th post. Like many bloggers before me, I have chosen to skip the “200 things about me you might not want to hear” and host my VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY. The prize? Your very own thumbs up statue:
Life got you down? Consult with your statue for the encouragement you need. I really have no reasoning behind the giveaway prize except that it made me laugh and it seemed like a good idea at the time.
The rules are:
1. You must live in the US or Canada. With the economy being in the crapper, I’m not willing to fork over a crapload of money to ship this sucker elsewhere.
2. Leave a comment stating why you can’t live without the motivational hand. I will draw a name out of a hat (or bucket or basket) to select the lucky winner.
3. The contest will end on Tuesday, April 14th and the winner will be announced the following day.
4. Send your Proof of Purchase in with your check for $74 and I allow you to enter the contest twice.
5. Disregard #4, that was just me being greedy.
