Of cat meat and nose rings - Random Tuesday Thoughts


Holy crap is it Tuesday already? Yeesh.

Wait, that wasn't a Random Thought. Or it was, but it doesn't count. Don't judge me yet!

Who wants to play this week? It's already too chaotic and bizarre for one person, so Kelly over at The Neurotic Mom is going to host with me! Gather your arbitrary segments of thought, your whimsical wonderings, your (possibly scary) tangents, and put them all into one post. Go on - it gives you an excuse to come completely unglued, once a week. Then grab the button, leave a comment or shoot one of us an email, and we'll link you up!

And - go!

I saw a bumper sticker today that said, "CAT - The other white meat". Really? That seems juvenile, especially since it was on a mini van. Plus, I'd have to check to be sure, but I really think that cats would be DARK meat.

Apparently the next edition of the Collins dictionary will make the word 'Meh' official. Well, that sucks. How fun is it to be the voice of the indifferent slacker generation if, y'know, it's all OFFICIAL? Now we have to come up with a totally different word. Like, 'sna'.

Why am I writing my random Tuesday thoughts on a Monday evening? Oh, right. WORK. That shit seriously gets in the way of my blogging.

When I tote my 13-month-old into the liquor store with me, does the clerk wonder if I'm pulling beer for him? Or in this case, wine. Because he kind of looks like a wino. Plus, he totally slurs his words.

The whole Motrin Moms 'scandal'? I thought the ad was puerile and completely lacking in funny, but not offensive in the way other people seemed to be offended. I was offended by that woman's VOICE. I mean, you know she's a 20-year-old actress who has never changed a diaper in her life, and thinks people who do are suffering from lobotomies. How do I know that? Because I'm still that person in my head sometimes, and that's exactly what I sound like.

I was play-wrestling with my son the other day, and my nose ring came out, so I just took it out and left it. Except, well, it was more liike a week ago. Maybe a week and a half. Oh, crap. I bet the hole grew in. Where did the ring go, anyway? ...there it is. Maybe if I just - and wiggle it a little - and push a little - OW. FUCK.

Well, at least I still have a nose ring. Hopefully it will detract from my bright red swollen bloody nose.

...so that's your sneak peek inside MY head for the week. Want to return the favor? Grab the button, leave a comment, and we'll link you up! Then go visit The Neurotic Mom to see who she's shaken up this week!
