    « 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

    randomtuesday

    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?

    Anyway.

    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!

    Jumping on the bandwagon. I went way off base with lots of random subjects. Thanks for sharing.

    Girl, your Random Tuesdays are the best on the web. You know that, right?

    Oh, and... you sew??? I bow in shock and admiration.

    I LOVE the Higgs Boson--LHC argument.

    As they say about physics, it's crazy. The question is whether it's crazy enough to be correct.

    The Superhero pics are awesome!

    Can we have a whole post about you SEWING??? Bc I am not buying it just yet. Perhaps you could sew a bonnet to cover my daughters butchered hair? I'd pay you for that, and she prolly would to.

    All right, there is a weird confluence of zombie posts going on this week. Granted, I'm catching up on my Reader, but this is the third zombie post of the night. Talk about your conspiracies. Loved, loved the link to those wacky physicists' theory. And I might have to add "the black hole ate my homework" to my Excuses sidebar (with permission... )

    You sew? I am beyong impressed. I can't even put on a button correctly.

    It seriously baffles me that you can sew. I sewed a button on Jamie's shorts last week and he threatened to get the camera out since it was the first time he's ever witnessed me sewing. And that's the extent of my capabilities and I only own black thread and one needle. Will you be my seamstress?
