It's Sunday Night and I Can't Sleep

I suppose technically it is Monday morning. whatever. Regardless, here you get a bonus ten. I'd write a whole blog about some random subject but my brain isn't working that way tonight.
  1. We watched Short Circuit on Netflix via the Wii twice today. Reminds of when my brother used to watch it over and over and over and over and over and over. It isn't nearly as annoying when you haven't seen it in 20 years.
  2. While I don't think I can bring myself to try all 100 things on the Vegan's 100 foods you should try list, I'm going to make an effort to try most of them.
  3. I totally and completely bawled after finding and reading Kelle Hampton's blog this afternoon. Start with the "Start here" right at the top of the page. Seriously cried people. Need to cry? Read it. Don't want to cry? Better not read it. It's amazingly written. But it will make you cry. Unless of course you are way more mentally stable than I and then you never know. You'll probably just read it and say "oh. nice story." and move on with your day. But I doubt it.
  4. I tried repeatedly but was never able to solve a Rubik's cube. My brain just doesn't work that way. I did however take one apart and put it back together to make it look like I had solved it.
  5. Christmas 1975 or 1976 I asked for the Jaws Game. I got two. I distinctly remember having to stand in the longest line ever to return one at Target. I also remember how cool it was to have a whole $10 that I could spend in Target all by myself.
  6. I have a hope chest that used to belong to my dad's mother. It's a beautiful Lane cedar chest. It is in my parents' bedroom. I'm not sure where the key is. I probably should clean it out one of these days. But it's been nearly 20 years since I opened it. I remember some of the things that are in it. Yes. definitely need to clean it out one of these days. All by myself. This could take a while.
  7. I type fast enough that sometimes my fingers type whole words that I hadn't planned on in my head. I guess that they get bored and tired of waiting for my brain to catch up.
  8. We had morel mushrooms for dinner tonight. And roasted broccoli. and the hubby had dead cow off the grill. I'd like to tell you that the morels were from our mushroom hunting adventure earlier today. But that didn't go so well. Short version: do not tell a 3 year old that she can go potty in the woods. It's a lost concept.
  9. There is a golf tournament tomorrow to raise money for our foundation at work. It's amazing to me that I am helping run a golf tournament tomorrow. Further proof that my life is not where I ever pictured it.
  10. We are out of gummy vitamins for the Babe.
I wonder if I'll ever run out of random things?

I'm thinking not.

Because I'm cool like that.

I'd say "nighty night. Don't let the bedbugs bite." But that assumes that anyone reading this is ready to go to bed and not reading it in the middle of the day at work when they really should be doing something else. (Pusher this means you.) Besides. I've seen bedbugs in real life now. And they totally creep me out. Just ask Kevin the bug guy. He'll vouch. I'm kind of over zealous that way. And not in a happy go lucky kind of excitement. More excitable.

Nighty night. Here's hoping the bedbugs stay far far away.

I'm confused - taking apart/putting together is NOT the proper way to do a rubix cube? wTF?

Bed bugs? Yeck....where? :/

I'm scared of the foods list without even opening it. I'm not usually good at trying things I haven't had.
And I had no idea Target was even around in 1975 or 1976...we were out in the country :(

I tagged you in a photo meme on my blog!
