    « How to avoid the Zombie Flu, er, H1N1, if you don't trust the vaccine like certain paranoid individuals | Main | Does this dream mean I need a new uterus, or a new butt? Or possibly that I should be a little more clear when giving directions? »

    The future would appreciate it if I didn't take up quilting: Random Tuesday Thoughts


    It's that day, y'know, the one with 'Tue' in it.

    On a totally unrelated note, did you know tue means 'kill' in french?


    I've been somewhat in absentia this past week in the blogosphere, because I've been sewing a dress for FoN's eldest. She needs it for her choir performances. I honestly don't mind, even though I know a bunch of you are now snickering because I don't seem like I should be able to sew, but it's really making me dread having a teenager. If this is the level of participation required to parent a child in high school, I'd like to just stunt mine at the age of 2, if you don't mind.

    YES, I really can sew. Honest. Occasionally I cook, too. Let's not spread that around, ok?

    I've also been busy being a human comforter for my son, who's been feeling under the weather. There's been no vomit this time, thank dawg, but he's been running a fever off and on and generally being listless. I'm convinced it's the swine flu, not because I'm a paranoid person, but because I publicly announced my intention to NOT vaccinate him against it, and that would just be the way my life works.

    Okay, that makes me sound a little paranoid.

    I maybe won't mention how I think the the H1N1 vaccination is just an evil plot to spread a zombie virus.

    These are awesome: Old war photographs, with superheros in them. THE WAY IT SHOULD BE.

    Remember that Large Hadron Collider that was supposed to be creating a mini Event Horizon? I never understood why you'd do that, because the first movie was bad enough. But anyway, lots of things have been going wrong with it, thwarting scientists' attempts to suck us all into a black hole. Now there's a theory being floated that the Higgs boson, the theoretical particle that they're trying to prove actually exists, is creating the problems from the future to ensure it isn't discovered.

    Maybe I watched too much Star Trek, but I'm totally buying that.

    So, you can't use "but the black hole ate my homework!" as an excuse this week. Random up, you guys!

    All I am taking away from this is "But, teacher, a black hole ate my homework!!!" But I just can't manage to say it without snickering. Hmmm, I wonder why?

    Also, I am saddened to bits that I am not participating today. I love me some Random on my Tues, but everything got away from me and nothing is done. *shrug*

    Boson higgs was already already proven back in the early 60's. Kennedy wouldn't keep quiet so they went back in time and took him out. There's a reason there are so many inconsistencies with his assassination.

    Trust no one.

    That last geeky part... I didn't understand any of that.

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

    Happy Tuesday! Hope your son feels better soon!

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkyooty

    My first "official" random post!! Just found your site - liking what I see!

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMegan Elise

    I hope your son feels better. Its hard not to get paranoid with all that you hear these days.

    I like your H1N1 zombie theory, it sounds so much better than my I'm-just-not-gonna-do-it excuse. I'm totally borrowing your's from now on!

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCole

    OMG! I am so not leaving the comfort of my home again. I sometimes too thin that it's a conspiracy to get vaccinated but seems to work with the measles, chickenpox and stuff. Anyhow, loving the thought of zombies hey it is close to Halloween. ha

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterTonya

    I try not to let too many people know that I can cook and sew too...then they expect all kinds of things, like dinner every night!

    Hope your little guy is feeling better soon. You know a two year old isn't feeling well when they aren't running around like lunatics as usual.

    Hubby and I are in conflict over the H1N1 shot for our little one. I'm getting one myself (pregnant & freaking out) but not sure what to do with my daughter. If I don't and she gets sick I'll regret it...if I do and she gets sick then I'll regret that too. Too bad parenting wasn't a whole lot easier!

    If it makes you feel better I'm not crazy about the swine flu vaccine either. I'm not sure how I feel about being injected with something that was just whipped up recently. Hope he feels better.

    Hope the kiddo feels better soon.

    And I am also totally digging the idea that the future is messing with us to prevent the discovery of the whole event horizong particle thing (and that movie did totally suck).

    ::slipping on funny swine flue mask::

    Yes! I so agree. H1N1 vax is an evil zombie virus. Grrr!

    I hope your little one feels better soon, so you can get your sew on.

    Will also be protecting my children from the zombie virus and am not yet convinced they can catch the flu from pigs.

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterCassie

    I semi publicly declared that I wouldn't be vaccinating against H1N1 as well because I didn't think we needed it...and then I went around and knocked on every piece of wood I could find!

    Those superhero pics are great! But is it just me, or does the guy in the last one (in front of the mics with Batman) look a bit like Liam Neeson?

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterMad Woman

    I knew the Future would try to screw us eventually.

    And while I admire your sewing industriousness, I want to warn you that it was a choir dress, when I was in the 8th grade, that made my mother stop sewing forever. Careful, pace yourself, drink lots of water.

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBecky

    I hope your son feels better soon!

    I wish I had time to sew these days.

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterkys

    Yes, but can you sew a blanket in the shape of the Starship Enterprise? Hmmm???

    (Hope X feels better.)

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterFrogs in my formula

    I would agree with you on the Swine Flu. I'm guessing my kids will get it too, just because I'm against the vaccine. I mean, who wants an army of zombies? I sure as hell don't!

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterStacy

    I'm more than a little worried about the H1N1 vaccine too. For no good reason, either. But think about it...if everybody else in the world becomes a zombie, wouldn't you want to be one too? Life would be pretty damn unpleasant if you were the only uninfected one left...

    October 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAmber Page Writes

    hope the little guy is better soon!!
